Without this would you achieve your goals?


Have you remembered what our teacher's emphasis was when we were in school?

They would start with the basics. I always believe in simple things and basics. Everything has its own basics. A fundamental. A person wants to get success in life needs to stick on those fundamentals. A business has its own basics, a sport has its own, Yoga has its own, and every art like painting, music has its own. What happens when you start something new to learn? They teach you the basics first. In fact, it is always the basics. Basics are simple and easy to do. 

Do the basics sufficient to achieve big goals? 

Of course, yes. Basics, when done repeatedly, bring big results.

For example when you do physical activities every day for 6 months, for a year, or for 5 years, imagine what effect it will bring to your health.

Daily sales call done for 6 months or for a year or for 5 years, imagine what effect it will bring to your sales.

Daily readings for a half an hour to one hour, what will it do to your knowledge? Will it bring efficiency and effectiveness to your work.

The list can go on. Basics indeed are essential. And what does it take to implement these basics?  

It requires discipline. It requires self-discipline. Without self-discipline dreams and goals are merely wishful thinking. It is the self-discipline which differentiates between achievers and non-achieves, between performer and non-performer, between top salespeople and fair salespeople. Self-discipline differentiates a professional from an amateur.  

If you are not self-disciplined every single day, it will bring sporadic and weak results. Weak results give discouragement and disappointed resulting in the erosion of self-confidence.

What happens, when a person starts a new business or a new course to enhance his or her value or learning guitar or sketching or a new sport? He or she starts with great excitement; he or she is given basic lessons, which require patience and self-discipline. Once this self-discipline is not practised, it produces weak results and after some time the person is so discouraged, as the expected results are not coming forth-he or she finally quits. It is not that person’s intention was not good, but he fails to practice self-discipline on a consistent basis, on a daily basis.
So, the key to goal achievement is-on which another principle of success is dependent-basics practised with self-discipline every single day. Without self-discipline, you won’t achieve your goals.

Keep growing.

This one thing can make you rich and prosperous

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’   I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Take simple steps, unlearn things that are not necessary and learn things that are important to achieve goals and to make life simpler. There are many things which we have learnt. Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind. If such is the situation we must unlearn certain things. So, we can create space to learn new things that are essential for us to achieve a larger purpose. We must keep in mind the process and act through which we master the things is simple. If we make the laws and process of life simple, it would be easy to live a simple life and achieve more in life.
