How the magic happens

We tend to wish for magical solutions to our problems. On rare occasions, it works this way, but usually not.

Typically, we take small steps, one after the other. No glory, lots of work. Sometimes we get knocked back, but sometimes we take a leap and a bound forward. And it looks like this:

  • Incremental debt payments or savings for years, until one day we realize that we are nearing a milestone.
  • Asking, asking, asking and hearing many No’s, until we finally hear the Yes that opens the door of opportunity.
  • Showing up, doing the work, giving our best, then we are surprised to hear gratitude from someone who noticed.

The magic of relationships, business ideas, work, personal improvements, etc. usually happens over time on the road of determination and perseverance.

So, what are you doing today that represents progress? What little thing did you do anyway that you should feel proud of? What are the next steps, the next right things to do?

Do not be discouraged, be strong and courageous! Keep going! You can do this!

You are making the magic happen, even if it takes a while.

Worth Repeating

I wish grace and healing were more abracadabra kinds of things.
