Some of the biggest things in your life have started from someone or something tiny. When they burst into something big, it can be an amazing sight.

For today’s inspiration, it is all about understanding how you can be apart of that experience now. We will touch on three questions listed below:

  1. What prevents someone or something tiny from growing?
  2. What are some examples of big things that come from someone or something tiny?
  3. How can you allow for something or something tiny to grow in your life?

Now that we have the questions, let’s find the answers!

What Prevents Someone Or Something Tiny From Growing?

You must be careful when watching someone or something tiny grow because if not, you could be hindering the growth process. Here are four things that you or someone can do that would prevent someone or something tiny growing:

  1. Lack of faith/confidence. When you do not believe in yourself, the people around you, or the process, nothing will grow from it.
  2. Sabotage. If you or someone else is busy sabotaging your tiny dreams with negative thoughts and actions, they will not sprout into anything positive.
  3. Lack of education/knowledge. You may have something tiny that could potentially grow, but if you do not obtain the knowledge and education necessary to make it grow, it may never evolve into anything more.
  4. Lack of resources. Tiny things that lack the proper resources to grow will eventually fizzle out over time.

What Are Some Examples Of Big Things That Come From Someone Or Something Tiny?

In your life, you have either heard or witnessed big things coming from people or things that started off being tiny. Here are five examples of such things that you may heard and/or seen in your life:

  1. Agriculture/Gardening. A tiny seed planted into the ground can sprout up to be a fruit, vegetable, or a tree.
  2. Human Reproduction. A tiny sperm that connects with an egg can evolve into a baby and eventually an adult.
  3. Relationships. A tiny kiss between lovers can evolve in to a sexual encounter, romantic relationship, or go as far as turn into a marriage.
  4. Money. One dollar that is placed away in an investment or savings account can eventually grow into thousands or even millions or dollars.
  5. Ideas/Dreams. One simple thought from a person’s mind can evolve into an invention, movement, or simple change in the world.

How Can You Allow For Something Or Something Tiny To Grow In Your Life?

It is time for you to allow for someone or something tiny to grow in your life. Here are four steps you can do in order to make this happen:

  1. Learn to accept someone or something tiny. You can start by accepting the tiny person or thing into your life either physically, verbally, or mentally. Do not let the size of someone or something prevent you from missing out on the growth that can take place.
  2. Provide the adequate resources for that tiny person or thing to grow. You can do this through doing research of what you need for that particular or thing, and then proceed to give it what it needs. If you want the growth to happen, you got to be the supplier.
  3. Have faith and confidence in the tiny person or thing growing. Let the tiny person or thing know that you believe in, have patience with, and trust in the growth process either physically, verbally, or mentally. Do not be too quick to step in when the growth process is not going the way that you want it to go.
  4. Rejoice and celebrate in the evolution. Take the time to enjoy the growth from start to finish by acknowledging all of the victories along the way physically, verbally, and mentally. Do not be focused on the end product when there is a lot to appreciate from the tiny point as well.

Remember that tiny people and things can grow into someone or something beautiful as long as you are willing to give the person or thing an opportunity.
