We often take the small things for granted. The little progressions don’t have the same BOOM as big changes. We want it fast and we want it now. However, I contend that small is where the magic happens.
Changing your life takes habit. And habits never happen quickly. They take time.
10% more strength in your hips can make the difference between getting up and down the stairs without assistance.
10% more range of motion in the ankle can make the difference of having no low back pain.
10% better breathing patterns can alleviate stress levels and headaches you constantly experience.
10% more attention to movement can change the poor habits that are leading to your pain
10% more water intake can keep you from getting dehydrated and sick
10% more attention to your attitude can change the attitude of everyone around you
10% more kindness can change the world
10% more love can save a relationship
10% more effort can make you a champion
10% less food on your plate can shed unwanted pounds
10% less negative thinking makes you happier
10% more time with your children changes their future
10% less television makes you smarter
10% more reading eventually makes you an expert
10% on top of 10% gets you closer to 100%
Never take for granted the power of small incremental changes. Like water dripping on a rock it keeps chipping away. The rock yields to the never ending drops.
Be the drops!
Embrace the 10!!
