We Don’t Become Heroes Overnight

Men with hero shirts on under their work clothes - goal setting

We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down.” – Eleanor Roosevelt<>

In modern times, we are so focused on reaching success, that very few make it to the finish line. Why? Because they burn themselves out trying to achieve everything they want at once. At Scott’s Team Building, we know that to achieve your goals, it is important to take your time.

Why it Is Important to Take Your Time to Success

As kids in the intense Zim-Lowveldt heat a special highlight was locating the many chocolate eggs hidden in the surrounding bush at Easter. We knew that they were there somewhere and used boundless energy and enthusiasm in our quest. The more our hoard grew, the greater our satisfaction.

It wouldn’t have been as exciting if there had been only one big egg. That would have entailed a lot more searching and still only a single prize. The combination of the little successes far outweighed a single big triumph.

And so it is with life, with impatience we want that big egg today – but when we see what obstacles surround those ambitious objectives, we often become disillusioned at the seemingly intimidating challenges, lapse into apathy and forego the prize for another day.

However, by taking just one step at a time, the combination of smaller attainable goals is easier, brings regular satisfaction leading to a positive attitude, and suddenly find that we actually have conquered the “insurmountable”.
