“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.”
― Winston Churchill
Do you sometimes wonder what it will take to get the job done? To finish the damn book? To see your name in print? To see the completion of the project you call “the book of my heart”?
There are so many things which distract us in life, keep us from achieving the things we desire. What really prevents our sucess is ourselves. That’s right. We are our own worst enemy.
We dilly dally, procrastinate, make excuses and make commitments— which we are oh so eager to forget —when it’s difficult to keep the promises we make to ourselves.
But really, it’s not difficult at all. We simply need to do it. Starting out small is the key to keeping those promises. It’s important not to overestimate the durability of our focus. We need to plan for accomplishing small goals consistently and over the long haul, not just today and tomorrow, but for a year, five years, or a lifetime.
This is how dreams turn into reality and talent builds a career.
