Taking steps, but not sure if I'm getting anywhere...

I've been in college for nearly 4 years now, and I'm currently still at a junior status (the majority of people who started when I did are graduating this Spring). My anxiety held me way back for the first three years, but I'm starting to take small steps to fix my mistakes.
I've been living at home, but come next Fall, I'll be transferring to a school in Florida (I live in Virginia now). I've also been trying to push myself to speak up in class and make small talk with people. One of my professors did a pretty bad job masking her shock when I raised my hand and contributed to a class discussion today.
The thing is, although my family, therapist, and few other people have told me that these are pretty big steps for me, I feel like I'm getting nowhere. I'm not sure why...

Sorry for babbling.
