Small victories lead to big victories.
In all of life, we admire the people who enjoy the big victories. The basketball team that wins the national championship (Go Lakers!), the movie stars who make the great movies, the scientists who develop a new understanding of the universe, etc.
But, the reality is that each of these huge victories are made up by a succession of steps (smaller victories) that ultimately lead to their accomplishments (big victories).
This is something that I’ve noticed in my years long quest to grow vegetable plants. I have continued to progress and learn along the way. I make mistakes. Things fail. Then I start over, having learned something from the last time I tried.
I will get to the big victory of an above ground vegetable plant! But, I know it will happen through small steps along the way.
Where in your life are you expecting a big victory, when in reality you need to recognize the small ones that are happening all around you?
