Behold the power of habit: my beautiful friend Yinka, who has lost a whopping 100 lbs (45.3 kg) over the past year or so.
She's tried before, and stumbled along the way.
She's tried and succeeded, then despaired as the weight crept back on.
Then something changed.
She started casting votes for the person she wanted to be, and she changed the actions and decisions she makes every single day.
Whatever you want to achieve, it's what you do every single day that counts, not the one-off grand gestures.
It's the Tiny Beetle Steps that'll take you to where you want to be, not massive leaps – whether you're writing a book, building a business, speaking a new language, or learning to play a musical instrument.
I love a good story to illustrate my point, so on this beautiful, frosty Sunday, I would like to point you towards Yinka's story.
Read what she has to say, and realise that you, too, can achieve the goals you set for yourself.
All it takes is Tiny Beetle Steps, every day
