There is no shortcut to success

If you need to take a thousand steps to achieve your goal, you first have to start with your first step. For taking this one step, you need motivation. You definitely needs power to start something. How to get yourself motivated and have power to start. Someone might inspire you through what he has done. You might have known or even met many inspiring figures and you were so inspired and motivated. But why you don’t see yourself as successful as those who inspired you?

If you want to reach your goal, then motivation is not enough. Motivation is what gets you started. It is what makes you take your first step toward your goal.  You still need to take another 999 steps. It is not easy. It takes time. It might also take your sweat and tears. It takes so much patience. What you need to do is to keep taking steps and not giving up.

There is no shortcut to success.

You might need to take a completely different way or probably you need to develop a new habit and stop your old habit of doing. You may get yourself motivated by others, but when you have to develop a new habit, you have to do it alone. In this, that many fail. There is no shortcut to success.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

  1. I read an article, years ago, and the man who wrote it said habits are important. He said most everything we do in life is a habit and a lot of people have trouble changing their habits and he suggested everyone do two things. One is to drink 8 glasses of water a day and the other is to set your hour alarm clock for 30 minutes earlier every day. I know these might sound silly but he said taking 2-3 weeks to get in the habit of doing these two things can motivate you to change more important habits.

    I like your writing about habits and motivation. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
