If you’re like me, it’s easy to look at where you are in life and wonder how you’ll ever get to where you want to be. 

The distance can be so vast that it paralyzes us. I call this the gap trap. 

The gap trap says people give up when they fixate on how far they have to go. Instead of focusing on what they can do today to get themselves one step closer to their goal, they let the distance overwhelm them. 

My advice to any person who wants to accomplish something big is this: win small every day.  Winning small isn't that hard. It's just you taking one step in the right direction. Anyone can do that. The challenge, of course, is every day.
