HOW TO MAKE YOUR SMALL ACTIONS HAVE A BIG IMPACT
In this episode of Confidence on the Go we’re chatting about:
- How to live in such a way that you really believe and live out the methodology of small actions truly leading to a big impact
- Two methods and quick activities that will strengthen how you value your small actions in your subconscious
- How to start getting obsessed over the small things – and to not get tired in the process
As always, a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners, thanks for being a part of this extended community of contagious encouragement.
I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter. Join the movement of #betterbeauty and message me via email to make your voice really resonate for a cause. Shop for your own Beautycounter collection at www.beautycounter.com/trishblackwell
QUOTES ON THE BIG IMPACT OF SMALL ACTIONS
The man who moves a mountain begins with one stone at a time.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. –Mother Teresa
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. –Vincent Van Gogh
It is the small things in life which count; it is the inconsequential leak which empties the biggest reservoir. –Charles Comiskey
Notice the small things. The rewards are inversely proportional. –Liz Vassey
CREATE A SMALL-THINGS LIST
Small things I personally commit to on a daily basis:
To love well
To learn something
To do something that is hard
To do something that scares me
To move my body
To move the needle of a goal forward
To read something
To breathe in love through hugs, kisses, touch
To reach out to someone else
To be generous
To set my mind right
To push myself physically
To rest myself physically
To commit to gratitude
In order for your small actions to add up towards something that matters, you must first decide what it is that you want to matter! To have big impact, you need to know what you are walking and working towards – without that defined, your small actions aren’t able to be compounded and compiled into one area or one thing.
Know what you are working towards!
REMEMBER THE SMALL THINGS THAT MOVED YOU
The small gestures, words and actions of others can change your life – when you remember their influence over you, you are more empowered to be consistent and unwavering in your own commitment to the small things in your life.
Small things that changed my world:
-“Go be Trish”
-“There’s only one Blackwell”
-God cares how you empty the dishwasher
-Generosity of an unknown for FOCUS camp
-“You were created to be world-class” –TD
-“You look adorable pregnant”
-“You can run a sub-3-hour marathon” – Debi
-Pearl cross given to me by Kim
-Detailed and generous baby showers
BE OBSESSED OVER THE SMALL THINGS
- Take pride in what you do – in the small things.
- Let the small things ground you into the present – they will keep you from being overwhelmed by your journey and the destination and will keep you from overthinking and inaction.
- Have faith that the small steps you take are moving you forward.
- Encourage others to take small steps too – invite them into your “smallness”

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:
I have been listening to your podcast for close to a year now. I started binge listening to multiple episodes at once while I was traveling. You really came in handy during my 15-hour bus rides :). I just returned home after 8 months of traveling around the world and reality is starting to set in. You see, I have this dream of being a life coach which feels completely out of reach. I’m finding myself searching for corporate type jobs because I’m feeling pressure to make money right away. I’m looking at companies in the health and wellness realm since that’s where my passion lies, but a desk job is what drove me to leave everything and travel in the first place (which was the best decision I’ve made to date). I know from experience that the best things in life are on the other side of fear, but I don’t even know where to start with this one. Maybe one of your coaching programs would be a good start for me? What do you think?
Thank you for helping me realize my dreams and for inspiring me to take action. You’re the best!
