Here’s the thing…it’s not always easy to put in the work and not achieve the success we’re hoping for. In fact, it can be crushing. Leading us to feel defeated, deflated and drained of energy. But, that doesn’t mean we should stop trying. No, no. This should be the fuel to our fire.
Our current day society reveres instant gratification, and our brains love that immediate thrill of overnight shipping, of those “likes” on social media, and of the unabashed binge watching of a new documentary series. It’s all great, right? But, what about the less glamorous slow and steady pace? How can we switch gears and redirect our appreciation from the instant to the gradual build. To the not so linear, but fruitful path of the warrior. Well, we can take comfort in knowing that most (if not all) successful people have a few things in common:
- They fail (a lot). And they learn and improve from failure, rather than letting it push them around.
- They put in the work.
- They show up. Consistency is crucial.
- They trust that even if it doesn’t work out this time, it’s not for nothing. There’s meaning and growth underneath each attempt.
- They don’t wait to “feel” like it, or for things to be perfect before they take action. They know that action leads to answers and answers lead to solutions.
- They set goals and intentions (and write them down).
Whether you are determined to up your fitness game or rise to the top in some other aspect of your life, there’s something to be said for maintaining a slow, methodical, deliberate pace as you weather the storms of doubt and unforeseen obstacles. Keep your eye on the prize, with grit and conviction. And know you’re not in it alone. Cheers!
