Are you looking for some motivation to take small steps to reach your dream? We have rounded up some of the best baby steps quotes, sayings, proverbs (with images and pictures) to inspire you every day.

Life is a series of small steps and efforts taken along the way consistently. And if you add up these tiny baby steps you take forward, you reach your goal. Whether it’s your business, work, fitness, health, studies, the improvement in any of these areas, it is a gradual phenomenon. You need to work on yourself every day, making small positive changes regularly.

These small changes over time, shape you to a new person. So do not expect a difference of things overnight. People get disappointed very soon when they see things don’t seem to change. But the trick is to start small. Small acts of self-improvement will encourage you to do more and focus better. Just like a child does not learn to walk all at once, they start with baby steps, they crawl, fall, and then they learn how to walk and run.

Similarly, the process of achieving your dreams and find success is gradual. Never be disappointed with small failures, you will fall, and learn how to get back on your feet again. I hope these quotes inspire you to keep working hard, no matter what your speed is. Moving forward is the key.
