In the beginning, there is basically no difference between making a choice that is 1% better or 1% worse.

You just can’t see the outcome of most choices at that microscopic level.

But as time goes on, small improvements or small declines compound and create large gaps between people who make slightly different daily choices.

If you get one percent better each day for one year, you’ll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you’re done.― James Clear

Be 1% Stronger

I stopped trying to win every fight with my spouse…I became 1% stronger.

I started moving on from toxic people…I became 1% stronger.

I began reading my Bible every day…I became 1% stronger.

I started calling my parents every week…I became 1% stronger.

I stopped bringing my phone with me to bed…I became 1% stronger.

I started praying first when I got anxious…I became 1% stronger.

I started going out of my comfort zone…I became 1% stronger.

I have changed my perspective…I became 1% stronger.

I started caring myself…I became 1% stronger.

Everyone wants to wake up and be a better version of themselves. Change happens incrementally. It’s one small thing changed or one small habit adopted.

“The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.”― Abraham Lincoln

The 1% Promise & Challenge

Starting is the hardest part. By focusing on what you know you can do you will often surprise yourself with what you didn’t think you could do.

  • One pushup often leads to 10 more.
  • A five-minute writing session often leads to 1 hour.
  • One hard sorry makes the future one’s easier.
  • Reading your Bible daily often leads to thinking about it often.

Challenge yourself over the next 30 days. Every day for the next month, focus on becoming 1% better in some aspect of your life.
