Setting small goals for yourself is an awesome idea. They’re easy to achieve, which puts you in the right frame of mind instantly.
Much larger goals aren’t so easy to accomplish. If the plan is complex and large in scale, it will involve the coordination of more people than just yourself. For this reason, it will take more effort to achieve.
Continue on the path (no matter how long it takes) and eventually you’ll end up at your destination. If you quit or veer off for a bit, it’s going to take longer than you originally planned. Every time you forget about your destination, or quit working on the plan that gets you there, your goal seems further and further off than it used to. If you neglect any goal for too long, eventually you abandon all hope that you’ll ever achieve it.
Invest Consistently in Your Eventual Success
If you work each day on something, you’ve invested a bit more energy and effort into seeing it materialize. It truly doesn’t matter what the goal is or whether it’s a personal, professional, or business objective. Over time, every action that you take adds up to create a true work of great effort. It’s like cutting and polishing a gemstone to perfection. It takes time and skill, but eventually a truly impressive piece emerges. The same goes for your goal. Keep polishing, cutting, editing, and improving the areas of your life that pertain to your desired result.
Once you’ve polished enough, all that will be left is a shining gem of your creation. The process will take however long it takes, unless you take steps to speed things up. If you’re able to scale up and replicate your efforts, the pace will quicken substantially. It’s amazing to see the speed at which modern ventures are able to quickly scale, once they’ve solved their basic operational challenges. People share the same ability to rise rapidly through the ranks.
Focused activity, clear vision, and relentless activity have pushed many winners to their greatest heights.
No matter where you are right now does not matter. What matters is that you’re doing exactly what you have to, in great enough measure, to make daily steps that bring you closer and closer to your vision.
Relentless people eventually wear down all barriers. Their persistence is rewarded. Follow in the footsteps of the giants and you’ll discover their formula works the exact same way for you.
