Usually the experts will tell you to dream, to think big. They want you to imagine the biggest goals, even though they seems out of reach for now.
When I first heared or read this advice it felt like a confirmation of what I was already doing. I am always been someone with dreams that big, they made people laugh.
They even say that today; you are the man of the big plans, but hey, when you going to make them happen?
When I read this advice, think big, it made me plan even bigger. But why did these dreams did not come true? There was a piece missing from the puzzle (read: a few more then one).
I stumbled on one of these pieces of insights a few years and disappointments later. Because you must realize that when you talk big, you can fall pretty harsch. Which happened numerous times and this is not positive for your self-esteem.
Back to the insight that made me question my actions over the years. It were exactly the actions that were missing from the big dreams.
You need to really put in the work to make dreams turn into reality. That is the only obstacle in the path to success.
But, how do you define work? Is it completing the whole dream in, say, one months without sleeping? Is it the completion of the whole dream? I always defined the work as one thing, the complete tasklist that was needed to make it happen. And as a result, I planned every step and task of the plan until every detail was clear. It always felt like an immense big project and it always failed one way or another. It never completely work out according to plan.
It took me some years to see the missing link here. It is actually very simple. You go at it one step at the time. You got to focus on what is right in front of you. One step of the time. One action is most important: the one that you need to do right now. Once you finish that one, you’ll find the next action you need to perform.
It is all about thinking of the small actions when you want to achieve your big goals. You got to think really big to define worthwhile goals for yourself. But once you set that goal, you have got to take the smallest steps first. You have to focus on these small staps. Nothing else matters before you finish that small little action.
The WALKIN STAIRS mindset and lifestyle is based on this. We got our big goals, but we will not talk about it. We always focus on the small steps, just like what happens with walking any stair.
To get to the top (GOAL) you need to take one step (ACTION) at the time. One step is not a problem, but walking that whole stair with one step is simply impossible.
And something happens when you eventually reach the top of that stair. You look back and think, hmm, that was not as hard as it looked.
And than you will find another stair. Congratulations, you unconsiously got introduced to the WALKIN STAIRS mindset.
Walk with us.
