Great Things Start With Small Beginnings

Great things start with small beginnings.

If you’re in the Philippines, chances are – you didn’t read that first sentence.

Instead, you sang it to the tune of the local Milo commercial theme.

I know because I did – several times.

Originally taken from an American proverb, that line has always served as a reminder for me whenever I find myself faced with a difficult goal.

Baby steps – that’s how others would say it.


Take baby steps. Break your tasks into smaller pieces. Solve a simpler problem first. That’s how you start.

How do you get to manage your budget and live within your means? It starts by just tracking your daily expenses.

Have you always dreamed of owning a chain of retail stores? Why not start with something simpler like selling your stuff online.

Do you want to be rich and achieve financial freedom? Then start by simply writing those goals down on paper, yes that’s how you start.

Small beginnings, fueled by passion, discipline and perseverance, that’s how you get to do and achieve great things.

  3. A simple but great reminder, Fitz. I think this is what all of us should realize, that all big companies starts from a dream.

    Afterward, this dream will create plans and few small steps will follow.

    Later, this small steps will be a high jump towards a continuous success.
