Check out this week’s affirmation: I take one step at a time

We have all heard that we need to just take one step at a time. Focus on the next task in hand, take each day as it comes etc etc. But I want to highlight how important this really is and how we need to do just that. Affirmation: I take one step at a time

When you start something new, you can’t do everything all at once and then expect the journey to be over, we do one thing at a time. If you want to start going to the gym you can’t do all of your week’s workout in one session.

Don’t measure your success on what you have achieved, measure it on what steps you have taken towards your goal. If you were to take a step each day, at the end of each day you can be proud that you moved one step closer to your goal.

Be proud of those little achievements and then be even more prouder when you can look back and see how all those small actions added up into this amazing outcome. Affirmation: I take one step at a time

If we didn’t praise ourselves along our journey then we would lose all motivation before we even got close to our goals. We need to make sure we are giving ourselves a pat on the back each time we achieve something, anything.

A slow and steady approach keeps me happy and fulfilled.

I break big projects down into smaller tasks. I find a starting point. I identify one thing I can do now. I build momentum that carries me forward.

I set short term goals and celebrate my progress. I give myself something to strive for each day. I stay motivated even when my final destination is far away. I notice how my efforts pay off. I give myself credit for my strengths and accomplishments. My confidence grows.

I make small changes that add up to a big difference in the quality of my life.

I reduce stress by striking one low priority task off my to do list or spending a few moments each afternoon doing breathing exercises. Affirmation: I take one step at a time

I lose weight by skipping dessert or drinking water instead of sweetened beverages. I prepare lunch at home instead of ordering takeout. I put skim milk in my coffee rather than cream.

I develop closer relationships by scheduling standing dates for coffee with friends or initiating deep conversations with my partner.

I increase my job satisfaction by joining a committee at work or decorating my cubicle. I practice sharing constructive feedback or listening attentively.

I build financial security by saving some money out of each paycheck or cutting back on spending for entertainment and clothing. Affirmation: I take one step at a time

Today, I succeed by being patient and persevering. I turn my life around with one small victory at a time.
