Sometimes your dreams are elusive and accomplishing them feels impossible. The big “pivot” moments are more than a cause for pause – they are kick-you-in-the-gut moments when you totally lose your breath. These are the times you stop and wonder if you should continue with this idea, pivot, or give up altogether.

This is why you need even the smallest moments of success. You need to meet that goal of busting out just 10 push ups when last week you couldn’t even do 1. You need that moment of success when you realize you have gone 4 whole days without eating processed sugar.

The simple goals can be your salvation when pursuing the extraordinary. This is when you realize that you are, indeed, a success and can take a deep breath and trudge ahead.
