If you have a large, seemingly unattainable goal, break it down into smaller tasks. Taking on a huge goal all at once can quickly become overwhelming and could even change your current attitude.

Before you know it, all of your small efforts will add up, allowing you to reach your larger goal with an attitude of accomplishment.
