We all want to achieve more, have more and be more in our lives. We hustle day in day out to become successful. In the pursuit of success, we stretch our selves so thin that it creates an imbalance between personal and professional lives
In spite of slogging that hard most of the people do not succeed in their lives. They live a mediocre life.
On the other hand, there are many people who appear to be relaxed and joyful then too they accomplish so much in their lives. They acquire all the kind of name fame and success even then they look so calm and comfortable.
It forces us to think
Is it really necessary to work hard to succeed in our lives?.
It seems as if hard work is not that important for success. People succeed even without working hard.
So let’s try to understand what we do and what successful people do.
We manage families, pay bills arrange funds for EMIs and Mortgages, we go offices deal with clients try to satisfy them and if we are an employee, we try to satisfy our bosses, we go out with friends and we try to be a good a social person who is engaged with his friends and families .
We try to be a good husband, a good father, a good employee and what not. If we are ambitious we try to learn new things and acquire new skills. Then too we don’t succeed and appear to fail in almost every walk of life. We try to do so many things in our lives that we become ineffective in everything that we do.
It shows that this is not a very efficient and effective way, so let’s try to find the road to success little differently.
Success in any given task comes when we are focused on it and do it with all our attention. We need to integrate our mind, body, and thoughts at the moment and focus on the task in hand.
A player keeps practicing for years before the world notices him. He works hard in one thing for so many years and remains oblivious to most of the other things in the world. Other than his work, he knows very little and does very little. In spite of that, he accomplishes so much in his life
Once he succeeds the world starts noticing him and then whatever he does, becomes a style. He appears to be a successful son, father, husband, friend and it appears that he has been successful in whatever he does. People start following him and he becomes a star.
With this example, we can see we don’t need to know all, do all and be all to succeed but the lesser we do the more we accomplish.
You can see many other such examples Warren buffet, Sachin Tendulkar, Elon Musk are few of them. They achieved so much but they are absolutely unaware of so many other things in life.
We need to slow down and focus on one or lesser things to succeed.
We need to learn to do less to accomplish more …
