When we see the dreams of other people, we tend to look at the conclusion of their work.
We see the book they finished.
We see the business they successfully opened.
We see the Wright Brothers and their plane.
And, in that moment, we lose sight of the millions of small things they did along the way and feel discouraged by the small things in our own path.
We don’t see the hard work or the failures or the struggling. We only judge the victories.
But, at a museum recently, it struck me that the Wright Brothers started with a kite. A simple kite and a breezy day. It was not grandiose. It was not the kind of action that would get you immortalized on a coin someday. It was a kite.
Today, as you continue to work on the small decisions in the midst of your big dream, remember it’s OK to start with a kite.
More than OK, it’s the best way to one day soar amidst the clouds.
If a “kite” represents a small decision or action, what’s one kite you could start with today?
