Tiny moments, big impact: the secret to transformation

Feb 25, 2023

Tiny moments, big impact 🏔

Thought of the week:
“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly - you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you.” - Eckhart Tolle

In this week's dose, I talk about tiny moments having a big impact.

Admittedly, I've had zero idea what I'm doing this whole time.

No clear plan of how to create a profitable business with any certainty.

But as I reflect on the last couple years, every milestone has come down to tiny moments.

January & February were our 2 best months since starting PER.

We had SO many things go well:

  • 4 new 1:1 clients
  • 35+ cold plunge event attendees
  • 150 community member sign-ups
  • 6 signups in 3 hours for my new cohort program

But all my mind wants to do is beat me up for not being where I'm headed.

It wants me to obsess with the future that I DON'T even have yet.

So consumed with where I need to go that it questions why I'm not there already.

We've had more growth in the last 8 weeks than in the last 8 months and my mind STILL tries to tell me to quit.


I have to consciously & forcefully celebrate these wins.

And constantly remind myself to stay in this moment.

To keep doing what got me to this point.

Make simple decisions, moment to moment, that keep me on track.

These milestones are just a representation of thousands of moments over the last 2.5 years.

Moments that seem inconsequential at the time, but ONLY with hindsight do they make sense.

This is exactly where we lose it.

In a vacuum, moments mean nothing.

This is how we tend to view them.

We downplay the impact small moments have on our life.

And neglect how pivotal & important they can be for us.

When part of the whole, they're EVERYTHING.

We lose it when our mind has us fearing the potential of our future.

The mind is amazing at predicting the future.

But it tends to create a future where everything fails and we end up alone.

Combat this with presence, calm, & stillness.

These bring us out of the future and into the now.

“Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.” - E. Tolle

The phrase trust the process is a bit worn out...

But there's gold there.

To me, the process is simple. It's a collection of moments.

Nothing more.

Moments created by our decisions.

What we do, what we say, how we choose to interpret what happens, and whether learn or play the victim.

Moments gain meaning from our perspective.

Moments remind us of what's precious, what's fleeting, and what matters most.

Moments allow us to lean into how we want to feel.

In every given moment, we're gifted the opportunity to reinvent ourselves.

To choose a new way of being.

Because every moment is a choice.

You can choose to stay the same and keep the same life you wish was better...

Or you choose a new direction
and live that way each moment of every day.

PS This has been a major focus of mine lately as I feel a strong pull to keep achieving and pushing forward at all costs. But I keep asking that voice inside why? What's the achievement for? That way of thinking makes me miss out on the moment right in front of me every time.

Not something I want to sacrifice anymore.
