Most people think that things done in a big way is the only way to gain success that can be felt and enjoyed. This is far from true especially when the big efforts don‟t yield the desired positive outcomes expected within the time frame projected.
Mentally and physically, taking small steps would definitely yield better result in many ways, some of which are listed below:
When things are done in a big way, expectations are also high and everything connected to the huge commitment is also expected to be big in its returns.
This can have a detrimental effect on the mindset of all concerned and connected to the endeavor. When things start going wrong, and the projected outcomes are not visible or even worse not possible, the feeling of dejection sets in and this negativity can contribute to the individual losing focus and giving up altogether.
Learning to make small adjustments, especially when it comes to starting a saving plan will be a better option, as this small start will not overwhelm the individual and cause the exercise to be abandoned at the first sign of a challenge.
Another advantage of starting small is that the actual exercise of saving will help to give the individual more confidence once the results of such savings becomes evident.
With the ability to create this amount of savings clearly possible the individual may then decide to venture into taking on a slightly bigger savings challenge. As each challenge grows the confidence of the individual grown with it, until a very substantial healthy savings plan becomes a normal part of the individual‟s budgeting exercise.
