Our action at any moment has crazy ripple effects in our lives, almost like a butterfly effect. But the big moments in life do not define our happiness and joy—the small moments do—and having the courage to confront them is crucial. Haseeb Qureshi highlights how finding the courage and confidence to conquer life's small obstacles can bring us to long-term happiness and create a positive impact in our lives, relationships, and future endeavors.
