Lean Quote: Anybody Can Make a Difference, and Sometimes the Smallest Action Makes the Biggest Impact

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.  —  Alice Walker

Since 1987, March has been recognized as Women’s History Month. Originally initiated by Congress in 1981, the first Women’s History Week was celebrated in 1982. But because one week is hardly enough, by the time 1987 rolled around there was a full month to celebrate the women who came before, the women of today, and the generations of women to follow.

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any." 

Alice Walker


By seeing themselves as worthless.

By believing the lie that they don’t have the ability to make a change.

But self-deprecation is a form of self-sabatoge.

Negative thoughts breed negative outcomes.

Thinking we are going to mess up, often sets up to do just that.

Luckily the opposite is also true.

A positive outlook gives way to positive results.

When we believe in ourselves, we rise to the occasion. 

When we have faith in our abilities, we grow limitless. 

There is a power in confidence.

A power in knowing you are enough.

In believing you are okay exactly as you are.

You are so much stronger than you know.

Your potential is boundless.

All you have to do is believe.


Anybody can make a difference, and sometimes the smallest action makes the biggest impact.
