It’s a process of a thousand small steps, not one massive leap to the top of the mountain. There is no extraordinary cosmic snap of the fingers, but rather extraordinary results from the consistent ordinary small steps. The most important step is the one right Now, under your feet. This is the step that will lead to the subsequent effect of a domino chain reaction.

Want to get to the top of your proverbial mountain, focus on the most important step; the one thats under your feet right now.
