We’ll be continuing our discussion of Achievement during our lessons this week. We’ll be talking about how important small accomplishments are, doing small things really well, and how these small things add up over time into the Achievement of something really significant. Our in-class discussion lesson follows below:
“If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way.” — Napoleon Hill (Author)
Much of the time, when people achieve great things, they don’t happen right away. Usually, people achieve great things by accomplishing many, many small things in a great way. Think of all the small accomplishments that go into achieving your Black Belt. Punch after punch, kick after kick, one step after one step — you learn how to do all these small things in a great way, always doing your very best. One day, all of these small things add up together, and you are ready to achieve your Black Belt. Don’t ever underestimate the value of small things done extremely well — that is how we make amazing achievements.
1) What is something small you are trying to accomplish now?
2) How do you think you can do this in a great way?
3) How long do you think it will take you to accomplish it?
