Have you ever wonder why some people always achieve what they want? Is it because they are just lucky or they have more time? I don’t think so. How do we spend our time is our responsibility.
Don’t make excuses that you don’t have time to do the action towards your goals and dreams. If you really want something, you will find a way how to get it unless you give up.
A couple of years ago I decided to intensively observe how successful people act, what they do, what is their secret. I have read books on this topic, attended a lot of seminars, listened to podcasts, asked people who I considered successful what they do.
I found a pattern that if you follow it, then you can have almost anything in life.
To summarise, I would use 3 words – DISCIPLINE, ACTION – Massive action! And PERSISTENCE! No matter what is going on in your life, what other challenges you might have, you need to keep going!
How does it work?
We start, set up our goals, feel the passion and go for it. Yeah! We feel the excitement, follow up our steps but then ……. Why most of us go back to their old patterns?
What is happening next is that after we achieve a certain amount of satisfaction – see the improvement, feeling better, then we might stop doing anything.
We get comfortable, the progress slows down or stop, then the results just slowly meltdown and we end up where we started or with a small improvement.
Another case – we start but cannot see any results yet or the results are too small that we just feel it doesn’t work. What can also happen is that someone else criticises us, reject us, and we stop again.
The last case that I will mention is that we just never start because we OVERANALYSE, OVERTHINK and OVERWHELM ourselves and end up with dreaming “How would it be if I…” or saying “One day I would…” but we actually never start the action!
What to do to Succeed?
If you want to get what you want, you need to develop a discipline. It is a skill that can be learnt with time. You can start with small steps. It is important to always remind yourself why you doing it in order to stay motivated.
With a time, you will progress, you will get results. For some it can take shorter time, others need more time. Both ways if you don’t stop, you are always progressing.
Sometimes we just need to know the right direction. However, even if you are not sure, by doing action you still growing and learning. Therefore you are getting somewhere rather than if you just never start and always thinking.
To reach your goal is not easy. It will have ups and downs, it might feel uncomfortable. You might experience lot of rejection on your way. However, those who don’t give up and believe, they usually succeed at some point.
No matter how long will it take, you will get there if you truly want.
The secret is behind to feel the emotion what is behind and why do we want it. So that we will do anything to achieve it or decide to change the direction in other way that is better for us.
