2. Effort – Greatness Comes From Effort!
Success as you must have understood by now does not come to those who wait but those who seek it. In order to get to your goal, a considerable amount of effort is required, as a matter of fact, the more effort you put into a thing, the better the chances of its success. Effort is defined as an earnest and conscientious activity intended to do or accomplish something. It can also be regarded as a series of actions advancing a principle or tending toward a particular end.
To develop the skills to be GREAT at anything demands an incredible amount of focused effort. You don’t become great at something by mere wishes or admiration of that thing, you must be focused at it, giving it considerable quarter of your time and resources, this is when you will be sure to get it.
To get the maximum amount of focus at your goals, it’s best that you select one goal at a time. Founder of Zen Habits Leo Babauta suggests that selecting one goal at a time will prevent your focus from spreading too thin, and this would likely end up in so many unachieved goals.
One of the things that would help you stay focused at the goal is to give yourself constant reminders of it, so your mind constantly jogs to that goal. Putting up a poster of your current goal where you would always see it or setting reoccurring reminders on your phone is a great way to do this.
Find a way to maintain a laser-sharp focused effort, and the goal will come true.
Enjoy your weekend.
