"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit”- Aristotle 
I chose to focus on the words highlighted in red because this quote is about who you become because of the actions you take. What this also means is that you can become excellent at behaviours that don’t serve you. For example, complaining, procrastinating, doubting yourself, not believing in yourself etc. 
“The Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with One Step” – Lao Tzu 
Although this quote talks about journeys, which can be long or short, it can also be applied to goals, tasks and activities. When you think about it, they all require taking that first step, no matter how big or small. If you don’t take that first step, then it’s unlikely that you will accomplish what you set out to do. 
The first step you take doesn’t have to be complex or difficult. In fact, the simpler it is the more likely you are to take it. If it’s simple, it takes less willpower, motivation and energy.
