Think about something small consistently done over time. The compounding effect it would have. Good or bad.
What if you worked out everyday consistently for an entire year? What would happen to your body? Would you see results the first day? The first week? The first month? Would it be inevitable that you saw results?
Think about your marriage. What if you started to do something small or stopped doing something small consistently- what would happen over time? Would anyone notice right away? In a week? In a month?
What would happen if you looked for one thing your husband did that day that you were grateful for and told him? Everyday.
What would happen over time if you listened to your spouse to understand him, before trying to be understood?
What if you gave him the same kind of attention that you give your kids?
These are only a few example, but think to yourself and your specific situation: What one thing could you do (you aren’t doing now) that if you did on a regular basis, would make a huge positive difference in your marriage?
Whatever small thing you decide, will make a difference for YOU. It will make you a better person as you try each day to make a small change.
Do not underestimate the power of something that is compounded over time. We all like to see instant results, which is why so many of us quit something right before we start to see the impact it could have in our lives. However, learning to see the big picture and how our actions impact us over time, makes all the difference.
Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least. -Goethe
