The Top 5 Ways To Embrace Patience

Published

on

My research on successful individuals made me realize that all successful folks were patient. They worked for a period of 3 to 10 years without quitting. For this reason, it dawned on me that I also have to embrace delay whether I like it or not.

However, I realized that embracing delay is pretty hard because I have to work diligently and patiently without getting discouraged even when my results don’t arrive as early as I expected. This realization made me contemplate on why it’s hard for people to master patience even though it’s a primary key to success.

Anyway, I thought about patience for a week and I realized the five ways we/you can be patient

Here are they

  1. Stop Wanting to Prove People Wrong

If you want to achieve your goals so that you prove people wrong you will become very impatient because you will want things to happen as fast as possible so that you appear right. Therefore, to become more patient, avoid wanting to prove people wrong. Just work towards your goals with nobody in your mind.

I loved proving people wrong but I ditched this behaviour after realizing that I usually want to progress quickly whenever I want to use my achievements to prove some folks wrong.

  1. Stop Focusing On the Outcome

It will be impossible for you to be patient if you constantly focus on your results because most of the time, you won’t see the results you expected. For example, if you are a blogger and you are targeting 10,000 visitors per day, you will be impatient and you might give up if you constantly check your stats because it might take long before you reach your target.

However, you will embrace patience if you forget about the results and start concentrating on acquiring the skills and knowledge required for you to achieve your goals.

  1. Know What Makes You Impatient

To embrace delay, you must know the factors that make you impatient and start avoiding them. For me, I avoided competing and comparing myself with others after realizing that these factors make me an impatient individual. It dawned on me that I always feel that my dreams are taking long to come true whenever I compete or compare myself with others.

  1. Understand that it Takes Long to Succeed

One of the main reasons why I’m a little bit patient is that I know that it took approximately 5 to 15 years of hard work for most successful folks to achieve their wildest dreams. This knowledge makes me realize that it might also take time for me to achieve my dreams, and for this reason, I have to embrace patience.

  1. Surround Yourself With Dreamers

You are more likely to be patient if you surround yourself with dreamers because you’ll realize that their success is also taking longer to arrive. My dreamer friends made me a patient individual because I realized that just like me, they are not meeting success quickly despite their hard work.

Conclusion

If we wait long enough, we’ll meet success. Therefore, we must cultivate patience if we want to live the life we want. We must also understand that patience is one of the primary keys to success because it enables us to persevere and persist without being frustrated. It might be hard to be patient but it’s not impossible. If some ordinary people succeeded in life because they managed to be patient, why not us?

The 5 Major Stages You Must Go Through When Chasing Your Dreams

Published

on

Shows the difficulty involved in dream chasing

After studying the biographies of many successful folks, I realized that all of them went through the same stages of dream chasing regardless of their socio-economic status. I summarized these stages into five stages which I believe you’ll also go through if you are chasing your dreams.

Here are they:

Stage 1 – Idea

Here, you’ll give birth to a great idea that you’ll want to turn into reality. For instance, if you are an aspiring writer, you’ll want to turn your thoughts into a best-selling book, and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll discover a wonderful business idea which you’ll want to turn into a successful company.

Stage 2 – Enthusiasm

After discovering the idea, you’ll visualize the life you’ll live when you’ll achieve your dreams, and you’ll tell your friends and family about this life. You’ll then research on how you’ll turn your idea into reality, and you’ll start working enthusiastically because you’ll want to live your dream as soon as possible.

Stage 3 – Disappointment

After working for a period of 6 – 18 months, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll make little progress despite working hard. For instance, if you are an aspiring vlogger, you’ll realize that getting 10,000 subscribers is not easy, or if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll be disappointed because your business might fail to make profits.

Besides this, you’ll realize that dream chasing demands funding, but few people are willing to support you. Primarily, you’ll realize that it might take longer to achieve your dreams. These challenges will make you want to give up.

Most people quit chasing their dreams at this stage.

Stage 4 – Perseverance

If you really want to achieve your dreams, you’ll decide to persevere. You’ll face obstacles fearlessly, and you’ll commit yourself to overcoming them. Besides, you’ll avoid everything and everyone that might prevent you from achieving your dreams. Also, rejection, failure, and naysayers won’t stop you from working hard.

You’ll also realize that only those who persevere achieve their dreams, and you’ll work like hell. Moreover, you’ll strive to make the journey enjoyable so that you don’t give up.

Most folks make their journey enjoyable by making friends with like-minded people.

Stage 5 – Success

After working for a long period without quitting, you’ll become highly skilled, and many people will love your services/products. If you are a writer, many people will be willing to buy your books, and if you are a businessman, people will be interested in your products. You’ll then use the money you’ll earn to buy whatever you want and travel wherever you want. You’ll be so fulfilled.

Conclusion

It’s easy to dream, but difficult to achieve dreams. Most people quit when they realize they’ll have to work for a long period before they achieve their dreams. Only those who persevere succeed because they never give up. We must thus join the perseverers if we want to boost the chances of achieving our dreams.

THE END.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere, but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and thus continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere, focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for people to work towards their goals when everything is going well. However, most people get discouraged when the going gets tough. The ability to work when it gets tough is what sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance.
