What’s up? What’s up? What’s up, everybody? Welcome back to THE a.m guys, welcome back to five minute rants. I’m your host, Michael Abernathy. And welcome to the show predicated on the journey of life and business. Hope life is treating you good guys. I’m doing better than I deserve. And I really appreciate y’all tuning in. appreciate the support. I hope y’all are getting something out of this. If there’s anything that you guys would like to hear any topics that you’d like to be covered, you guys can leave them in the comments. I appreciate it.

Well, anyways, guys, one of the things I want to talk about today is how life really operates in the little things. And this is What I mean. So if you look at how all large dreams or big dreams are built in life, right, whether you want to build a massive project, like an airplane or anything like that, whatever is big, always is a small, always made up of an accumulation of small steps. So if you think about an airplane, how huge and how large an airplane is, you think about the 1000s of nuts and bolts, and rivets and screws that go into like a Boeing 777. Right, huge airplane. But you think about how many small things actually have accumulated to produce a singular massive object. And that’s the same thing with dreams.

So all big dreams are made up of little daily actions. And we often forget about this. And oftentimes, we’ll stray away from the vision or the dream, because we don’t know how it’s going to be accomplished. But every mountain is climbed one step at a time, every journey is taken one step at a time. And there are tools to speed up that journey. So instead of just going on foot one step at a time, now we have cars that will cover multiple steps very quickly, if you think about that, right. And so it’s how life works. And so instead of like just waking up and oh crap, I’ve got to do a marathon, I’ve got to run this massive marathon. It’s really more like, Okay, how about I just do 10 squats? Did you know that if you do 10 squats every day, by the end of the year, you’ve got 3650 squats under your belt just from 10 a day. That’s a lot of squats, just bodyweight squats.

Think about that, with drinking 10 ounces of water first thing in the morning, every day, by the end of the year, you’ve drunk and you’ve you’ve drunk in 3650 ounces of water, just from 10 ounces, 110 ounce class a day. Okay, and to really look at life like that, like there’s a large accumulation at the end of your life. For instance, like brushing your teeth, you brush your teeth, and you’re doing the small action, you brush them in the morning. And you brush them in the evening and you floss. And then you think about Wow, that saving my teeth. And now that that little action consistently every day is going to save me $2,000 For a cavity. And see we think that big things like just automatically appear SpaceX came out of nowhere. It’s like, nope, Tesla came out of nowhere, Facebook came out of nowhere, like we look at a lot of like Giga corporations, massive corporations like Apple, it just came out of nowhere. It’s like no, hundreds of 1000s of millions of small steps were taken over the course of years.

And this is where having a team comes into play. Because when you have a team, you can take a lot more small steps really quickly. But if you’re alone, you’ve one step at a time. That’s how you do it. And if you look at the big corporations, that’s exactly what’s happening, they can take 1000s of small steps at one time perform 1000s of micro actions every day to build and accomplish on a large scale. And that’s how it works. It’s not rocket science, I don’t got a PhD in any of this stuff. It’s just the simplicity of looking like it is made up of little daily actions. All big dreams are made up of little daily actions, small wins every day, making my bed, doing 10 squats, stretching for 15 minutes, whatever it is, I need to sit down write two blog posts a day because you’re in charge of marketing, I gotta post on Instagram, because you’re in charge of marketing as entrepreneur, or, Hey, I’ve got a task out all the small tasks that have to come in every day, you build infrastructure and process, okay, that’s one infrastructure. That’s infrastructure and process you don’t need to build again.

And now you can sub out that work and delegate to a team member and give them confidence and empower them to actually accomplish and produce the outcomes that need to be produced in life. And if you think about it, all of life works this way. relationships work this way. Right? relationships, work kind words, encouraging words, also, truthful words, correction is so important, right? The wounds of a friend are better to be trusted than the kisses of an enemy. Think about that. Sometimes friends tell you the truth. Sometimes your best friends are the ones that tell you the truth. And you get pissed at him and don’t like them, but they actually care about you. But it’s the small steps every day to maintain that relationship. And this is how all of life works. It’s the little things. That’s it.

Anyways, Guys, I’m out of time so I’ll catch you later. Peace
