According to motivational speaker Brian Tracy, one of the greatest success principles of all is called the Law of Accumulation. This law says everything great and worthwhile in human life is an accumulation of hundreds and sometimes thousands of tiny efforts and sacrifices nobody ever sees or appreciates.
It says everything accumulates over time. You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile. It’s like a snowball. A snowball starts very small, but it grows as it adds millions and millions of tiny snowflakes and continues to grow as it gathers momentum.
And as Ray Lammie, three-time cancer survivor, said, “It ALL counts. Everything we do adds up over the course of a lifetime. I have studied and researched this topic for many years, and it has a ‘magical effect’. We are the sum-total of everything we have done in the past. Our future is going to be the sum-total of what we think, what we do and how we act— — today. It all counts; life does keep score.”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Forever … is composed of the nows. — Emily Dickinson
This is so true, and yet I’d never really thought about it. Thanks for sharing.
It all counts!
