” Success is not where we are today and how much you have or what kind of big position you have. Success is, are you the best at what you do? ”
– John Paul Dejoria, founder and owner of John Paul Mitchell Systems.
We mostly like viewing success with two metrics; where we are, presently, and how much we have. But this happens to one of the biggest killers of our motivation to accomplish our dreams and goals. This is what makes us feel incompetent and lose trust
On our ability to make things happen.
No one ever feels good seeing themselves progress slowly, so the conclusion is ‘this is so hard for me or I can’t do this.’ Sometimes it takes quite long before we get the results we want, and this, does not say that we are not successful.
Many people give up at the instant they start worrying about where they currently are and what they have. We all want to see things accelerating very fast in our lives. It’s much like wishing things to happen instead of making them happen.
As a friend of mine commented on a post I made recently, failure to consider taking baby steps and wanting everything now is where most people miss out.
You’d rather consider working your guts out everyday, making it your habit to focus your energy to making yourself better at that which you want.
