“I don’t know what they’re teaching in college these days, but let me tell you one thing. You will never become wealthy unless you own something. I don’t care what — a business, real estate, scientific invention, even a song or painting — but you need to own it. The only way you will ever become wealthy is by being an owner, not a worker.”— Life in Half a Second – Matthew Michalewicz

When people say I can’t run 10k, I can’t eat healthy, I can’t save more than 50% of earnings, or whatever else we often doubt our abilities in, it is typically because we don’t have to. Yes we would like to but we don’t have to; and precisely because we don’t have to, we don’t.
If we had to, we would.
A baby starts walking with tiny imperfect steps. After months and years of practice that baby would have grown and automated their walking altogether. What would have once been a conscious and challenging undertaking would now be the easiest and subconscious activity they do.
That is encouraging for those of us who want to learn any skill or perform any activity consistently.
In the beginning all you need is a tiny step. Don’t try to be perfect, don’t get frustrated with yourself. Just take one imperfect step today; and tomorrow take another, and the next day another. Keep taking your tiny steps each and everyday. One day you won’t even think about it, you’ll just realise that you are walking.
Any thing you want to do well, never forget this: it starts with one very tiny step.
