Great things are often created gradually, not overnight—the same applies to your self-development

Most people who get very high on an idea of what they would like to become, usually start out with a very desire, but fail to realize that changes in human habits and beliefs usually take time because our subconsciousness (subconscious mind)—the bearer and storekeeper of all knowledge, powers and abilities—isn’t naturally used to changing overnight.

The subconscious mind needs visualization, positivity, good suggestions, patience and persistent belief in order to give it enough faith power that can effect many changes in habits and belief systems that have been ingrained over a period of time.

Because many people are impatient and want a quick-fire solution, they easily give up and remain their old selves

If one wishes to undergo effective self-development and change their habits, they always have to remember that great success, habits, qualities and abilities are often created slowly.

Many people don’t usually see and appreciate the value in small changes

Small or gradual changes have a lot of value and importance which many people often overlook. Everything in life, especially food and many useful processes, are grown or processed gradually, but still end up becoming or producing great products, results and success.

Great things can be accomplished if we focus on one small action at a time

If you see yourself as a great masterpiece in progress, then you would instantly appreciate the small changes that occur in your journey of self-development.

Also, you would be contented with improving gradually rather than giving room for negativity due to impatience and feeling that everything important can be done overnight.

Any little thing you do, and each effort you put in today will excite and motivate you, and give you the strength you need to progress on the long run and achieve your dreams.
