“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” ~ Confucius
How do you get to achieve your goals?
Well first of all you have to have some. You need to know where you are going so that you can head in the right direction. Give some real thought as to what you want, focus on it and determine what you need to do to achieve it. The things that you do every day should always be taking you closer to your destination of attaining your goal. Provided you have that end goal in site, and continually work towards it, it doesn’t matter how slowly you progress – you will eventually get there.
Many people however get lost along the way.
Some are too impatient to reach their goal. They work hard at the start, but get discouraged when the progress is slow. They feel that they are getting nowhere – and give up.
Others get started with enthusiasm, but when they don’t achieve quick results, become disillusioned. Because they are keen to succeed they look around for the “right” opportunity which is going to be THE one that is going to turn their lives around. Often they soon get disillusioned with this one too and shift their attention to the latest new, promising system that they hear about. As much time passes, they have worked very hard on their individual projects, but none are ever completed.
Yet others are extremely focused. They have a clear goal, they hatch a plan to get there and head off steadfastly in that direction, determined to keep going until they get there. Sometimes they are so focused on the plan that they don’t consider evaluating there progress and modifying there plan to suit the ever changing environment around them. They may get stopped by a brick wall, but because their plan said that the goal was just the other side of the wall, they keep pushing on that wall to try to get through. If they looked up and around they may see that there is actually a hole in the wall nearby or even a separate track around it. If they modified their plan to reach their original goal they could possibly reach it quickly and easily. Instead they are stopped at the wall – still pushing on it but getting nowhere.
As Confucius wisely said, “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” Provided you know where you are going, keep moving in the right direction no matter how slowly and evaluate your progress and adjust accordingly so you don’t get stopped by impassable barriers, you must get there in the end.
