We regret to inform you the escalator to success is out of order, please use the stairs. In case you missed the memo there is no fast track to your dreams. Here is where most stumble. We live in a world of instant gratification, dopamine-fueled pleasure-seeking addictions to social media likes, tweet, and notifications. With those chemicals coursing through our systems what chance do we have of meeting a goal which will need not days, but weeks or months or years to reach?
Consistency applied daily with incremental improvements can help form habits that move you toward your goal. Consider the preparations, Sir Edmund Hillary needed to summit Mount Everest in 1953. He had years of training climbing other mountains, the cooperation of hundreds of people before he ever set foot at base camp. Imagine his struggles, the fortitude, persistence and his consistent pursuit of his goal.
Do you consistently pursue your goal?
Keep on writing.
