Very often, people look for ideas that will bring them glory, riches and respect, but rare are those who find such exceptional ideas. In fact, experience shows us that it is not those that have better ideas who reap in the most success in the long term, but mostly the people who act with regularity, tenacity and perseverance in their actions.
For any project, dream or an objective to be able to take shape rapidly, you need two elements: developing a plan and executing it. The first step is to prepare a plan of action, one which is easy to accomplish. For example, if your objective is to run in a marathon, you will develop a phased plan over several months. If you are not sure of all the ingredients required in your plan for it to succeed, take help from an expert in endurance racing. Another example: if you dream of having your own company, detail out all the steps aimed at accomplishing this project into a plan of action. If you need help, consult a few business owners who have already launched their company successfully.
The second step represents the execution of your plan of action and this is the step where normally most people give up and get discouraged. Why? Often, because they have underestimated the number of obstacles to be overcome. Well, this is exactly the precise moment when they must display their courage and tenacity. Refrain from thinking that you do not have talent or luck like the others who have already achieved a lot of success before you. Keep in mind that those who have succeeded have very often faced the same difficulties as you.
In the beginning, when you move into the action with a view of achieving your objective, your efforts will probably give you little or no results, but what is important is that you must always try to do better and better, day by day, reminding yourself that a small step taken, every day, in the same direction will allow you, after a few months and few years, to achieve positive results. This approach of doing things should not be temporary, but must become a permanent way of life relevant to what you undertake.
Success is attainable to all those who make a decision to develop themselves through regularity, tenacity and perseverance, while performing the actions that bring them closer to their goal.
It is Michel-Ange who said: “If the people knew up to what point I have worked hard to develop my talent, they would not find me to be so exceptional.” Even Einstein, whom we consider to be the most intelligent person to have lived on our planet, has said, “It is not that I am so intelligent, it is just that I have spent the longest time with the problem.”
