Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
— Benjamin Franklin
Success doesn’t come overnight
Have you ever thought about the high level of success you could attain, if only you spent one hour a day improving your skills and abilities?
And, have you ever thought where you could be now, if only you started to work for your goals one year ago? And what if you started five years ago?
You see, it’s all about small steps and motivation. When we know what we want, we can reach any goal, if we work for it.
But we have to work for it: success doesn’t come overnight, and unleashing our potential requires hard work and determination.
Discipline is the only predictor of success, no shortcuts!
Read carefully what I am about to tell you: if you really want to shift your life, you have to behave as if you were your own employer.
You need to be a demanding employer with yourself, and you need to be a hard-working employee at the same time, I know this sounds like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but believe me, it’s the best strategy ever.
You need discipline, because real accomplishments come with patience and hard work.
Organization is the key
Step-by-step improvement is a simple concept, but if you don’t get organized, you can make it difficult, and you will feel overwhelmed, nervous, and frustrated, because you don’t even know where to start.
The simplest way to structure your life is writing down all the things you have to do, and organize your life daily. You can use a to-do list, your agenda, or a blackboard, but the most important thing is to write down everything, in order to avoid mental stress.
Practice the philosophy of continuous improvement. Get a little bit better every single day.
— Brian Tracy
