Small rudders guide great ships

by Rob Arthur

Sometimes we can tell that we’re not headed in the right direction.

We’ve been living in a way that’s not creating the life we want.

The life we know we deserve.

Yet it seems as though getting things turned around is too much work.

As though we’re bound to fail.

There’s so much we’re doing that we know isn’t working for us.

We don’t even know where to start to make a change.

Even if we started, the changes we’d have to make are tremendous.

Long-term habits.

Things we love to do.

Things we hate to do but can’t stop.

Things we see as a part of our identity.

The idea of change is paralyzing.

Fortunately, you may not have to do that much.

At least right now.

Do not underestimate the power of a small change compounded over time.

Consider a ship that’s headed in the wrong direction.

If it changes its direction just a bit, it can end up in a dramatically different place.

Over time, even a small shift can lead it to the right place.

Small rudders guide great ships.

If you’re not headed toward a life you absolutely love, even the smallest change to how you’re living could be all you need to correct course.

What can you do today?

What can you do right now?

What small step can you take?

You are worthy of the best life.

Making that happen may not be as far out of reach as you think.

It might take time.

It might take effort.

But what else are you going to do?

Might as well start.

Then keep going.

One small step after another.

You’ve got this.
