How do you eat an elephant?


Today I am feeling empowered and ready to take on the world. My husband and I have an insane number of things to get done before we can even make progress on our business venture, but I am feeling overwhelmingly positive.

While we both have moments where we become overwhelmed by the mass amount of things to be done, I am finding strength in an old saying. It goes, “How to do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” As simple as it sounds it can be so hard to remember to slow down and take things one step at a time. It is easy to look at the mountain of work ahead of you and simply shut down. However, I take courage in this saying because great things do not happen all at once or overnight.

My goal throughout this new chapter is to remain positive and keep each day in perspective. All things worth having take time. In order to accomplish your dreams you must take one step at a time and not let fear debilitate you. The next time you feel overwhelmed by life or just your to do list. Remember that if you simply move forward a little at a time you will get to the end. Fear is the killer of so many dreams, do not let it keep you from your personal greatness.
