Be it achieving your dreams or overcoming your bad habits, you cannot rush it. It takes time. Even when those around you don’t understand why you took the time you took. Ignore them.
It’s ok to move at your own pace. It’s ok not to meet other people’s expectations. It’s ok if others lose faith in you. As long as you keep yourself on the right track.
Keep believing, keep working and keep moving forward. One step at a time.
“Our loving Heavenly Father wants us to become more like him. God understands that we get there not in an instant, but by taking one step at a time.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed down-stairs one step at a time.”
– Mark Twain
“People say, what is the sense of our small effort? They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time. A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless. There is too much work to do.”
– Dorothy Day
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
