What you do over and over again becomes a part of you. What you do over and over again becomes so comfortable and familiar that you don't even think about it.

Have you ever studied or listen to professional athletes speak about how they made it big? Common among all of them, regardless of the sport, are the countless hours they spent practicing and visualizing executing plays and situations. They honed their crafts by practicing with other skilled players or they worked alone perfecting their skills, for hours every day.

So what do you do over and over again? What thoughts do you think to yourself again and again?

What words do you repeatedly say to others? What habits have you built into your daily life?

Do something once, and it has a small effect. Do something over and over again, and it can grow into a powerful force.

Success is built not by getting lucky on a one-shot attempt. Real success comes by integrating the small, seemingly trivial positive actions firmly into the fabric of your life.

The road to fulfillment is not hidden or complicated, and yet it does involve many steps, one after another after another. Achieve the small goals, over and over again, and they will surely grow into magnificent achievements.
