Hi, everybody. I’m Jasmyne with Relate Family Therapy in Centennial, Colorado. Today we’re talking about how less really is more. Sometimes people get stuck in a place where they sense that if they can’t do everything they want to do around something they shouldn’t start or they shouldn’t make any effort toward it, because they’ll feel like they failed or they haven’t been able to accomplish all they need to. Really, sometimes less is more. Putting yourself in a position where you can just make a small step or just some sort of an effort towards something really can put you in a better position and help you sense that you are achieving something. You create a sense of confidence, and you put yourself in a place where you know that, “Hey, I made a step toward this. I can accomplish it.” You know, people talk all the time about how you just have to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward, but they sense in their own lives that if they do something small that it’s insignificant or that it really doesn’t have much bearing or weight, but when you look at it from the outside perspective, you know that people really are able to move forward if they can just make a small step. And that, over time, that small step will grow, because their confidence grows, and their ability to see the next direction, and how well things are working get more clear and come further into play for them. So, today, we want you to just start thinking about how, really, taking the first step might be less than you wanted to do in the long run, but it is more than you’re doing right now toward you goal. So, “less is more” is the philosophy of the day.
