Small Steps with Disciplines Lead To Major Achievements
Why is it that some students and adults for that matter seem to commit to what they want to achieve and others just drift and manage to do enough to keep in the boundaries of mediocrity
I think myself that it is basically down to the depth of their desire and their belief in themselves that propels the committed ones forward to take action and move towards their desired goals. If they do not have that belief or desire of where they want to be and what they want to do in their future careers then they drift into the mediocrity of daily life.
One method I believe that can move us forward to where we want to be is when we set simple disciplines in the form of daily tasks. If we can find our inspiration that will ignite the desire to enable us to set up and perform small daily actions that will in turn lead us to create positive results in our lives that in effect make us unstoppable.
Lets think of this in another way ..
what is the price of creating these daily tasks compared to the price of not doing these daily tasks due to our lack of commitment?
The price is living with regret, failure, ill heath, and poverty. All because we have neglected to carry out this daily discipline. I have tried really hard to instill this daily discipline in my daughters by letting them see where this lack of commitment in young people has resulted in living their lives on welfare with a few children and little money to get by.
I love the saying …” if you continue to keep doing the same things you will continue to get the same result”
Everyone has the ability to change and change does not have to be insurmountable. All it takes is small changes daily in the way you do things and gradually you will start to see that small changes bring about major results.
So how do we start to put in action our daily disciplines.
We first of all need a clear idea of what we want for the future. Do you know what you want for your future?….You need a clear vision of what you want..I know what I want.. It does not matter what age you are or where you are right now. I have a plan to achieve in 2 years time, I am 57 years old and I have daily tasks I do to move me towards that plan. One of those daily tasks is writing this article.
Know what you want then create a plan to guide you to invite this success into your experiences.
Set down your daily tasks. Use your willpower to perform these daily tasks and in a matter of weeks these daily tasks will become habits. These small changes will not require you to completely change everything you do they will just mean that you start practicing your new daily success tasks.
Our desire will always tell us what we want but desire will only become reality when we put the wheels in motion to turn our desire into reality .
Our daily tasks are those wheels.
Remember the saying “if you want something done give it to a busy person” that is because the person is a “Doer” they just get on with things and get the work done.
It is important for you to see a vivid picture in your mind of the person you want to become in the future. Keep your faith strong that you will achieve your dreams. Always try to do a little better today than what you did yesterday.
Do this and you will live the life you planned.
