Do you feel hopeless when what you’ve been doing doesn’t show any progress? Are you tired of waiting for breakthroughs to happen in your life? Do you want to know the secret of becoming successful in your business or in your career?
The objects around us are composed of itsy bitsy atoms. Even atoms are composed of something smaller called protons, electrons, and neutrons. Even neutrons and protons are composed of something smaller called quarks and gluons!
Don’t worry, we won’t talk about Physics. This article will not talk about them. This article aims to inspire you how to value small things in your life.
Allow me to share an experience of mine. Our shuttle service left the bus stop and I had to watch it leave. I missed the bus because I did not arrive at the bus stop three seconds earlier. As a result, I took a public bus.
I’m sharing you this story to tell you how several seconds can make a big difference. If I were earlier by 3 seconds, I would’ve sat comfortably and I would’ve slept soundly in our shuttle service but that was not the case. That few seconds changed from a comfortable bus to a jam-packed bus. That few seconds changed a clean bus to a dirty and crowded bus. That few seconds made a big difference.
In our lives, there are many little things that we ignore. There are many little things we thought could never make a big difference.
Here are the 3 reasons why little things mean a lot in your life.
1. Little Things are the Basic Structure of Big Things
It works this way.
Imagine a beautiful concrete house. It has a roof made from red bricks, it has concrete walls that are unshakable and they’re painted white. It has glass windows which height is from the ceiling to the floor. The tiles are shiny that you can even see your face.
At the kitchen, there are state-of-the-art appliances which can be controlled remotely via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth or even human movement. Kitchen utensils are made in Germany. Paintings from Italy are hung on the walls. The house is majestic and it is so beautiful.
Little things are like that. They are the details of big things. They compose the big things in life. Little things make big things beautiful.
You have a job right now because you studied from pre-school up to college and during your years of learning, many little things happened along the way.
The same is true when you have a business right now. The reason you are successful in your business is because you have invested your time to learn and to expand your network.
Little things are the basic structure of big things and you are big today because of the little things you did in the past, of the little things you are doing now and of the little things that you are going to do in the future.
2. Little Things are Easier to Understand than Big Things
A book is divided into chapters. It’s easier to understand the contents of the book that way. Imagine a book without chapters or let’s say it has only one chapter! It’s not easy to learn from it, isn’t it?
Little things are easier to understand than big things, but you may be blinded by the big things that you ignore the value of little things.
Again, let me say this–little things are easier to understand than big things.
3. Little Things Expose Your True Personality
Have you ever quarreled with someone because you debated about the true color of a red wallet? Have you ever fought with someone else that caused your relationship with that person?
I know some people.
These people fought over petty things and those petty things exposed who they really are.
If you can’t handle small projects well, you will never handle big projects. If your attitude toward little things is not good, your attitude toward big things is worse!
People who have a good attitude and who have a good personality can handle little things well that’s why they are more successful in big things.
Value the little things because they are the foundation of big things in your life. Never underestimate the power and potential of little things such as small projects, small tasks, and small roles because you will never become big without them.
Always remember, do little things consistently to become big!
