It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop. – Confucius
We all know that slow and steady win the race. But why in the real world we are so focused on getting our results fast and when they do not come we feel like a failure. So instead of running on hyper mode in your life and burning out more often.
You should try a different approach work at 80% of your capacity for 90% of the time and push yourself for only 10% of the time. So that you can see a consistent work and result over time.
Your life is not a series of small success it is a more then that you will have both success and failure in your life. I am not saying that you should not celebrate your success yes you should if you do not you will not feel motivated to work next time.
But do not give too much time to either you failure or your success. You should move on. Life is a journey not a destination. You should live it like a journey that will only end when you will. So it will not matter if you have failed now but if you keep working it will be just a glitch in your long journey.
It’s the steady, quiet, plodding ones who win in the lifelong race.
Robert W. Service
If you want real containment out of your life you have to focus on pushing your boundary. Because getting out of comfort zone will make you better. And you will enjoy your life more if you think that you getting better at something.
You should focus on achieving mastery in some areas of your life. Like something that you enjoy doing it can be anything if you give 1hr everyday to this habit or task you will become good at it. After that mastery is not a long way behind it.
You will start to see changes in your life as you focus on mastery of things. Like if your are a computer programmer so think how can you become a mater at it. If you ask right questions you are going to get results. A simple exercise you can do is ask yourself how can improve myself 10%?
If you keep asking yourself this question and keep improving throughout your life you will become master at it.
The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion.
Alexander Graham Bell
So everything that you want better in your life start asking question about it. Whenever you are in a slum or cannot think of how can you improve it even more think about a time when you have same problem what you have done then.
You can always keep improving yourself no matter where you are in your life right now. It is a never ending process throughout your life. So keep working and thinking about the ways that you can improve on whatever you are working right now.
