‘Success is neither magical, nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals.’
When we say success, the first thing that pops in most people’s mind is wealth and career. However, career and wealth are just two areas where we can succeed. We have used these two words - success and wealth - interchangeably so many times, that over the period, these have come around to be thought of as the same thing.
Life can be difficult. Trying to cross the water will upset it. In the same way, when you try to change your way of life, things around you will shuffle. But remember, the shuffling is only paving way for better things.
Have you ever thought about the purpose of your life? Most people have not. This is not because we are ignorant, but because we feel that what we are doing is exactly what we were made for.
Change comes from within. It takes just a speck of a moment to realise why some things are, and why some things matter. Remember the story of King Siddharth. It took him just three days and three scenes of different men to realise that the world is full of pain and the only way to attain peace is to renounce the worldly life.
Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to do the same. We are honestly too worldly to even think of it.
As the years passed, Siddharth went deeper and deeper into the pond of knowledge and finally attained enlightened. What, according to you, is the reason a prince was able to get to such a point of life?
He had never in his life seen a bad day but he lived through a phase of no food and no shelter. He was determinant. He wanted to know how happiness could be attained and was consistent in his search.
Now that you know what consistency can do and how it can change your life, let’s come back to you and now.
If you truly want to get to your goals and hold your flag over them, then the only possible way to it is by being consistent. You have to get to a routine and follow it diligently.
Consistently doing something becomes a habit – be it good or bad. If you consistently give up on your goals, then that will become a habit too.
The most common reason a lot many people fail to achieve their goals is because they set it too high, even unrealistic sometimes. The key is optimization. Know what is achievable and strive for that first.
Doing this will help you in achieving your goals, even if it is one small accomplishment at a time. When gradually you get on to win a few of these smaller goals, a habit of consistently achieving goals will have been formed by then.
Now, you can strive for long term goals and slowly, yet consistently work towards them.
Your health and wellbeing, requires you to work on it consistently. So, when it comes to your health, set small term goals so that they turn into habits and lead towards bigger results.
