If you’re not making progress in the spiritual life, learn.

Establish the habit of making one small, lasting change in your life every month. Growth happens slowly, little by little.

Prayerfully consider a strategy to grow in virtue.

Lord, what is the one small change you are giving me the grace to make in my spiritual life.

If you make a small change every month, that will have a big impact on your life. Virtue begets virtue. If you establish a virtue in your life, or good discipline, it has a positive effect on everything.

If you don’t want to be stuck on a plateau and be stuck with mediocrity and lukewarmness, patiently persevere.
