Stepping Stones - 48 Card Deck by Lisa Hammond
“I hope these affirmation cards will become like good friends—traveling with you, sitting on your desk or hanging on your mirror, helping you find your own big dreams, gently reminding you to follow them wherever they might lead. So take off your shoes, kick back and join me in dreaming big.” – Lisa Hammond

Several years ago, Lisa Hammond launched Femail Creations, a successful catalogue business catering to women. Known as the “Barefoot CEO”, Hammond details the story of her vision to highlight women authors and artists—and starting her own business—in her book Dream Big.

Along the way, Hammond was encouraged by inspiration quotes to keep moving towards her goal, despite fear, overwhelm, and exhaustion. She has collected 45 of these quotes for the Stepping Stones deck. One side of the card features encouraging quotes by notable female figures, while the reverse presents Hammond’s “Stepping Stones”—the one step-at-at-time activities that helped her found Femail Creations.

Some of the quotes and comments you’ll find in the Stepping Stones cards include:

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble.” – Helen Keller

Lisa’s Stepping Stone: “When you are feeling truly overwhelmed, relief can be found by finding at least one project on your list that can be completed in a relatively short amount of time.”

“The world is round, and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.” – Ivy Baker Priest

Lisa’s Stepping Stone: “Knowing what we don’t want in life can be as important as knowing what we do.”

“There was a time when I looked to other people for recognition, because I didn’t have enough confidence to trust my own judgment. Now I’m not looking for reassurance, because I realize how fickle people are. My own strength is the best I can have.” – Annie Lennox

Lisa’s Stepping Stone: “This is know for sure: Only you can take your turn. If you have a dream, or are struggling to define your dream, go for it. No one else will do it for you. Nobody else can put you at the top of your own list.”

The Stepping Stones cards feature some great quotes, as well as practical advice for achieving your dreams. Whether you want to start your own business, begin a new area of study, or just reach beyond your comfort zone, these cards can provide you with the inspiration and encouragement you need to dream big and take a leap of faith.
