All changes, even positive ones, are scary. Attempts to reach goals through radical or revolutionary means often fail because they heighten fear. But the small steps of kaizen disarm the brain’s fear response, stimulating rational thought and creative play.~ Robert Maurer
This year’s January Jumpstart course is just about over. Soon-to-be course graduates are leaving with tools they can use to continue taking small steps and giant leaps toward accomplishing their Big, Juicy Goals. As this year’s course comes to an end, I’ve been reflecting on what I’ve learned since the course first launched in 2010.
I knew we were on to something when we created the course. I was pretty sure it would make a difference for people who chose to participate.
When the course launched, I wanted to see big results and super transformations. And yes, that does happen sometimes. But more often it goes differently.
What surprises me and touches me most is when a client makes one small, courageous move that changes everything. It’s amazing how one small step delivers gigantic results in how clients transform themselves.
You don’t always see or recognize breakthroughs when they happen. It’s only looking back that you understand how taking small steps lead to a breakthrough milestone.
Beforehand, the world may show up as scary or limited or lonely. Afterward, the world transforms into a place that’s safe, filled with possibility, exciting, and unlimited.
There is an energy shift. There is a sense of lightness, joy, freedom, peace, and excitement.
I’ve begun calling small steps that lead to BIG breakthroughs “Epic Moves”.
In my experience, Epic Moves are not predictable. They are spontaneous and often serendipitous.
I can only guide clients to take small steps, stay with the energy shift, and offer feedback as magic starts to happen. And wait for the best part to happen.
Eyes shine. Walks become jaunty. Voices get stronger. Power overcomes victimhood. Action replaces inertia. Life becomes an adventure in discovery.
Epic Moves occur when you take small steps toward the edge of your comfort zone and beyond. They happen when you give yourself permission to listen to your heart and believe that your dream – yes your dream – is even remotely possible.
The Universe instantly listens to and responds to your small steps, turning them into Epic Moves. The Universe is delighted by them and can’t wait to walk with you on an epic journey that takes you farther than you can imagine.
Do you have a dream you acted on? I urge you not to wait a moment more.
There’s a reason your dream was given to you. Take one small step in its direction. It may just turn into the Epic Move that WOWs you into a whole new world of vitality, joy, and aliveness.
