Move One Step At a Time EVERY DAY of your life
There are people who keep planning to do something big and there are some who know what they want to do and everyday they do something which brings them closer to where they see themselves. Which one do you think become successful? Obviously not the ones who keep thinking and spend years in chalking out a fail proof plan. The ones who become successful are the ones who move towards their goal everyday. With the rise of the sun, they do at least one thing which brings them closer to their aim and that is what makes them different from the others. Remember every wrong step discarded is a step forward. Thomas Edison said that before he invented light bulb, he found 10,000 ways of not making one.

Most of the people would listen, they would agree and would forget. It’s your life and if you want to be successful, then you need to delete the snooze alarm you have put up in your mind. That alarm is stopping you from exploring your full potential. You have to start and push yourself to adopt these habits for success and see where your life takes you.
