“So,” Cuba began, cocking her head, “what do you think these bridges are called?”
Daisy glanced downstream.
“Well, they are very small. It is only a small step across each one,” she observed.
“Excellent! Little steps bridge. What else?”
“Well, there are lots of them. You keep going”…..
……......When I was young, I fell and broke my wing and it never healed properly. It took great perseverance just to be able to fly the short distance from the ground back up to a tree.” She paused, “So what does this have to do with these bridges, I bet you’re wondering? Well, in order to stay safe every day, I have had to condition my wing so that it does not become too weak. Little flights, little and often. Some days I have more energy than other days.
I listen to my body. I know when to rest. Sometimes I feel better and sometimes I feel low, but I have to persist no matter what. I always know that the feeling will pass. If you keep going, you will reach your destination. One step at a time, then persevere again and again and again......until it becomes a habit.”
Change requires perseverance, but perseverance always seems like hard work and continual effort. We often run out of willpower and motivation we achieve what we want.
Cuba gives us a different and better way of looking at this incredibly important principle.
little and often..............
again...….. and...…. again...…..and...…. again.......
until it becomes a habit.
