The probability of making a positive change is inversely proportional to its size.  Major changes are tough, and the chance of success in a single attempt is low.  Small changes are always possible, and the odds of success on the first attempt are good.  I break large changes down into a series of smaller ones so the odds are in my favor.

Small changes are more important than big ones, because small ones make the big ones possible.  When small changes accumulate, the big ones naturally follow.  When I attempt small ones, I discover whether I am willing to do whatever it takes to make big ones happen.

I never feel discouraged when only small changes are possible.  I know that if I faithfully make the small ones, the big ones will do fine.  When I become an expert at managing small changes, I discover that I am an expert at managing large ones as well.  Large changes yield to the power of positive persistence.  The small challenges of life are the training ground for the great ones.  If I remain faithful in small things, I experience a tidal wave of success that carries me to destinations far beyond my early limited dreams.

Semper Fidelis is one of the hardest lessons you will ever learn.

No matter where you are, who you are with, or what you do, you  must always keep the faith.

The only people qualified to lead and show the way, are those who keep the faith.  You can trust them to always do the right thing.  When they face temptation, they are unmovable, and when they face challenges, they are unstoppable.   They stick with you through thick and thin.

The path to Semper Fidelis is littered with the corpses of the unfaithful.

Jesus said, "He that is faithful in small things will also be faithful in great things."  His statement reminds us that small things are important because they are the training ground that leads to greater things.

Most people treat the small things of life as trivial events, not realizing that their destiny is tied up in small things.  If you can't handle small things with integrity and enthusiasm, if you can't keep the faith, you've instantly disqualified yourself from greatness.  You are second string material and Semper Fidelis will never be part of your name.

In Saudi Arabia I sometimes gave sand driving lessons to my friends.  I always started their lessons in the safety of the small dunes before taking them into mountainous sand.  Small dunes are just like big dunes, except for their size.  If they can safely navigate a small dune, then a big one won't be a problem.  They had to be faithful in small things before they moved on to bigger things.  What I was really doing was giving them a lesson in Semper Fi.


My kids spent thousands of hours building their dreams with plastic Lego blocks. They learned that you can build anything you want one block at a time. They discovered that projects require planning, resources, time, and a great deal of work.  They learned how to visualize a project in their mind, and then they built it block by block.

Kid's build their dreams with Legos, and you build your dreams with your thoughts. 

If you learned your Lego lessons well, you know that building a life thought by thought requires a lot of work.  First, you must design your life, and then you must build it one thought at a time.

There's an endless supply of thought Legos out there vying to get into your mind.  Television, the news media, internet, the government, and your culture want to supply the Legos for your mind.  And if you let them do it, you will be in trouble.  Only a fool would let someone else select the thought Legos on which they build their life.

Whether you like it or not, you are building your life thought by thought, and you better do a good job, or you will have a miserable existence. If you are smart, you will build your life using only thoughts that you choose, thoughts that lift you up and lead to excellence, thoughts that take you to your dreams.

Choose your Lego thoughts well, because they will rule your life.
