A world of complacency applauding effort with no results.

We live in a strange world indeed. It’s strange in the sense that from kindergarten we celebrate a lie. We are applauded for effort without results. It is as if one could buy bread with no money but just the effort to have it.

Well as we grow older, we realise that even at awards evening at the end of the year they don’t award effort with no results.

There is no pride in failure

The human mind is schooled in scepticism. They won’t just take your word for it. Someone once said the man who tries and fails we do not wanna hear we want the one who succeeded against all odds.

Failures don’t give speeches

Try giving a speech and see who turns up to hear you speak. Say in your advert “I tried and I failed and I quit I am a good example of a failure.” I am no prophet, but no one will pitch up. But how come now we console each other for effort.

 

 

Choose your result

If you do nothing there will be a result, if you do something there will be a result, the secret is to choose your result. Mos people dont realise this truth, when you chose a result, you own it. Success at the end of the day is about ownership, own you results.

Success is the ability to produce results when they are called for, failure is the attempt to hide lack of results beneath a pile of excuses. Excuses at the end of the day don’t matter, they never did and never will.

Most people tell excuses to people who won’t even believe them. The tragedy of excuses is that the only person who delivers them is the one who believes them the most.

Be known for results

Nothing is worth more to be celebrated than a man who makes a career out of getting results, that should be your dream that should be your path.

 

 

So how do we make a change?

Be aware of the need and possibility for change.

Success is predefined

We must predefine what success looks like. “Earl Nightingale describes success as the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal.” Brian Tracy says, “Success is goals.” Goals are predefined before the match. Goals must be clear and specific.

Success is goals

Goals are the results we seek. In that case at any stage, we could be succeeding or progressing towards the goal or completely lost it going nowhere fast. If we apply effort and we move anywhere along the continuum of our goal that is called progress.

You see you can’t progress and remain stationary or regress. Progress goes forwards.

The three things to remember to avoid the trap of celebrating effort with no results:

Don’t you take off your eyes off the goal

Your goal is your compass, everything should be measured on how far you are from you goal.
For every effort there is an equal reaction(result).

 

 

If you apply effort and no result came through there must be something wrong. Don’t celebrate find out why.

Be hard on yourself

If you are hard on yourself life will be more bearable, while on the other hand if you are soft on yourself life will be hard. Choose your hard.
