There are two key success ingredients that will help you achieve whatever you want. These ingredients are action and perseverance.
You may know the secret to manifesting all your desires, what it takes to lose weight or improve your financial life. However, it’s not enough, you have to act upon your knowledge and be persistent.
Some secrets to happiness and success are so simple that most people expect to see great changes in their lives within days and when they don’t, they give up and go back to their old habits.
They simply do not persevere. It’s a pity because success is in that extra step they will never take.
Nothing happens overnight, and success doesn’t generally come overnight, unless you are a genius. And let me tell you that the most successful people in this world are not geniuses; they had to overcome all sorts of problems to achieve their dreams. And yes it takes time to succeed. One week, one month, six month, one year, it’s irrelevant if you allow yourself to enjoy and learn from the journey. When difficulties set us back, it is essential to keep sight of our dreams, and not to become disillusioned. It is essential to remember the reason why we committed to achieving our goals, why it’s so important to us.
These humble thoughts come from a born procrastinator. I started ten thousand things and achieved so few. I was talented but talent is not sufficient. It took me years to understand this simple lesson of life. Nevertheless, one day I started acting upon my knowledge and committed myself to:
- Achieve my dreams whatever it takes
- Allow myself to take time to achieve my goals
- Accept success and failure as gifts for learning
- Do 2 things everyday to achieve a specific goal
In the last 5 years, I achieved more dreams than through my entire life. If a born procrastinator can do it, you can surely do it too!
