It was none other than the late great Mr. Jim Rohn himself who repeatedly declared, “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced each and everyday.”
And guess what? It’s true.
It’s SO freaking true.
Despite the fact that success means many things to many people, although there are any number of roads on which you can choose to travel, while there are countless systems, methods, and tactics you may wish to implement, in the end it all gets back to those few simple disciplines practiced each and everyday.
Everyday as they say, is a new beginning, a fresh start, and that it most certainly is.
Nevertheless, it’s also a glorious opportunity to continue, to build, and to improve upon what you did the day before; to take yet one more all-important incremental step toward that which you’d ‘someday’ like to achieve.
Remember, it’s not always how much you do, but rather, how often you do it.
Earnest simply refers to genuineness.
Let’s be honest, to have a bona fide shot at your chosen endeavor you can bet it’s gonna take a fair share of ongoing effort on your part, right? Well then it goes without saying that you should be earnest in those efforts, if not passionate in your pursuit.
Bottom line: if you’re gonna do it, you gotta do it for the right reasons.
Effort, aka the “ef word,” is bar none the all-out undisputed plow horse of personal growth and achievement, a no-nonsense no-frills no way around it fundamental in your unfolding quest for greater joy and fulfillment.
Yet regrettably this enduring virtue has steadily fallen out of favor, eclipsed by our unquenchable infatuation with half-hearted results that are quick, easy, and instant.
And I’m here to tell you that’s an outright downright shame.
Because if there’s one thing that becomes glaringly more obvious with each and every earnest step you take toward potentially reaching your goals and realizing your dreams, it’s that it’s not the results of your efforts that matter…it’s your commitment to them.
Satisfaction lies in the effort, not the attainment said Mohandas Gandhi, and quite frankly, little is more satisfying than working at something you’d genuinely like to achieve.
Everyday Earnest Effort, it’s not about gettin to the good stuff.
It is the good stuff.
