THE SMALL THINGS
In 2007, a college friend of mines, George Olokun
These text messages eventually turned into a book authored by George entitled Empowered to Achieve: 50 Keys to Being and Becoming. I recently received my copy of the book in the mail, and as I flipped through the 127 pages I thought wow, this all started from a series of simple text messages – a task that is quite small in the amount of effort it took. I then started thinking about the small things we do in life and how they grow to become big achievements.
You can’t take the small things for granted; the small acts of kindness; the small words of encouragement; the small steps towards your dream. Look at the mustard seed. It’s only 1mm in diameter, but grows to be the biggest of all garden plants.
Whatever you want to do in life – no matter how big it may seem – just start by planting small seeds and always keep in mind that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step.
