"What people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things."
REAL results. REAL fast. Seems like that's what everyone wants nowadays. Waiting for things to happen just doesn't cut the mustard in today's increasingly fast paced society. People want things fast; the faster, the better. Instant gratification is the name of the game.
But wanting something and actually making it happen are opposite ends of the spectrum. There is a big difference between wanting something and actually doing whatever it takes to make it happen. HUGE difference. Wanting is easy. Anyone can want just about anything under the sun. But getting it is something altogether different.
"Whatever you do, do with all your might."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
If you truly want to achieve real results, results you can see, touch and feel, you've got to stop wishing and start doing. In order to get those things you ardently desire in life, you've got to show real commitment, real focus, real effort and real perseverance. Anything less isn't going to get it done.
Let's start with real commitment. Now we're not talking about the half-hearted, wishy-washy approach many exhibit day after day. Not even close. We're talking about a refuse to lose dedication that cannot be denied. You must be willing to commit, heart and soul, to making your dreams come true.
"Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets."
Next up is real focus. One of the main reasons so many fall short of their goals is not a lack of exertion or desire, but a lack of focus. Instead of fully concentrating their entire attention on the primary objectives they wish to attain, they bounce all over the place - from one project to another, from one idea to another, from one lost cause to another. They never fully focus, and as a result, they rarely if ever get much of anything done.
You cannot make this mistake. You should zero in on those things you wish to accomplish. Picture them in your mind, creating crystal clear mental images so rich, so real, so vibrant that you can almost reach out and touch them. Then focus everything you've got on making them happen.
"The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply."
The effort we put forth daily defines the degree of success we achieve in life. Real results require real effort; persistent, consistent effort. Half-way attempts, half-hearted tries and half-baked stabs at making things happen invariably end up well short of the mark. Why? Simply stated, a total effort was missing.
If you truly want to reach the goals you have set for yourself, you better pack a punch. And that means bringing your A-game each and every day. When you give life everything you've got - and then give even more - and you'll not only achieve your dreams, you'll exceed them.
"Decide carefully, exactly what you want in life, then work like mad to make sure you get it!"
The last piece of the puzzle is perseverance, the ability to keep moving forward regardless of the obstacles or difficulties we encounter along the way. Even in those darkest moments, when there appears to be scarcely a flicker of hope remaining; you must remain strong, unwavering, determined.
And never give in to the temptation to quit or give up on yourself or your dreams.
As long as you are willing to keep on pushing, to keep on fighting, to keep on keeping on, you're going to be all right. By remaining committed, staying focused, giving the effort required and persevering through thick and thin, you're going to get the results you seek.
REAL results. REAL fast.
The Bottom Line: Forget about style, focus on results.
