Small Opportunities

Success rarely comes from making
just a few big efforts.
Success almost always is the result of small
efforts multiplied again and again.
Small, simple acts can reliably lead to big,
magnificent achievements.
It’s just a matter of putting enough of those small,
simple actions together in the same direction.

Right now, in this moment, is your opportunity
to take one small step toward whatever goal
you have set for yourself.
In the next moment,
there will be another such opportunity,
and another and another as time goes on.

Achievement belongs to those who make
wise and productive use of time as it comes.
Achievement comes from those who understand
that small opportunities can lead to big results.

Those small opportunities are everywhere,
and you don’t have to beg or plead
with anyone to give you access to them.
You simply have to see the potential they represent,
and then take action.

Each time you see the opportunity to take one small step,
by all means take it.
And soon you’ll be racing far ahead

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
