Morning Cup of Joe – August 31, 2011

One Step at a Time

If I placed the world’s largest apple in front of you and instructed you to eat it, how would you do it? You would most likely eat it one bite at a time. It would be absolutely impossible for you to devour the apple in one bite. Much like the apple, your goals can not be accomplished by only taking one step. Your dreams cannot be realized if you are not willing to work at it daily; each day adding a new piece to complete the puzzle that will create the beautiful picture that is your dreams.

Rome wasn’t built in a day nor will your dreams be realized in a day. It truly takes time, discipline, patience and effort to accomplish your aspirations. It is unrealistic to expect your dreams to come true overnight; you must work at it daily until you achieve your desired outcomes. Each day is an opportunity to build your empire, brick by brick.

We live in a world where people expect things to arrive at the speed of light. The days of the 30-minute pizza delivery are over; instead some would rather microwave it for 5. The digital age brings us so many treasures while falsely setting unrealistic expectations. So many people feel as if they need it now. Please understand that anything worth having does not come easily. Instant gratification can lead to delayed disappointments.

The only way you are going to accomplish your goals is by taking it one step at a time.

To The Top!
Joe Paul
