Have you ever tried to chew a stake without cutting it? Although it may be possible, I am sure it would be to most dreadful thing to do. In other words, the only way you can enjoy a steak (as long as you are not a vegetarian) is by cutting it in small pieces. The journey to success is just like eating a steak, you can only enjoy it in small pieces.
Here are some points to keep in mind while you go:
1. One Step at a Time
You need to take one step at a time. I don’t know if you like to watch tennis or not, but is a sport that requires a lot of energy and concentration. In tennis, matches can go on for hours. But, if you ask a tennis player who wins a match, he will tell you that during the match he was only thinking about each game rather than about sets or the whole match. He was focusing at the task at hand.
2. Celebrate As You Go
Instead of waiting a long time for the big winning day, why don’t you enjoy success everyday? It is very important when you set your long term goals that you also set yourself smaller goals (e.g., milestones), and as you reach each milestone you should congratulate yourself and celebrate.
3. Passion and Determination
Passion and determination are the fuel that help you achieve your biggest goals. If you run out of these two important things, you will have a hard time succeeding.
4. You Can Fail, But You Can’t Give Up
This is the golden rule for every successful person. When you fail, you can learn from your mistakes. However, if you give up, you won’t have any chance to succeed. Failure is only destructive when you give up to try. As long as you don’t give up and keep trying, you will achieve success.
