You don’t have to get it perfect. You just have to get it going. Babies don’t walk the first time that they try but eventually they get it right.” —Anonymous

baby steps

What we often forget is that you can’t win the race, cross the finish line, or be extraordinary without doing the baby steps to get yourself there.

Having an extraordinary marriage does not happen overnight and just because you’ve started working on things does not mean you’ll see results right now.

Although one step in the right direction does not get you to the finish line. One step in the right direction is a baby step to reaching your goals.

Baby steps is a concept popularized by Dave Ramsey in his book “Financial Peace and yet this is an idea that’s been around as long as kids.

Baby steps are those little steps that get you moving in the direction that you want to go.

We know babies aren’t born knowing how to crawl, let alone walk. They have to develop the muscles to do so. They also need support and encouragement when they flip over and can’t get themselves back to where they want to be.

But one day you see a baby pull themselves up and there’s the moment of realization that everything looks different. Babies keep trying until they get it and then it’s one foot in front of the other. Leaning on other people’s hands.

Until that day when it’s no hands and one tentative step in front of the other.

That’s what happens with learning new things, like the 6 Pillars of Intimacy in your marriage.

It’s a baby step toward experiencing the extraordinary marriage you desire.

There’s always a journey.

What would shift in your marriage if you actually started with a baby step instead of trying to cross the finish line?

What would happen if the two of you recognized that there was a process instead of an instantaneous win?

You can build an extraordinary marriage by taking the first step today.
