Today is a good day to keep up with your goal pursuit, you are getting there. Keep being consistent.
If you are struggling with being consistent is because you keep PROCRASTINATING.
I’ve learnt a lot from this book “Eat that frog” by Brian Tracy.
The book highlights great ways to stop procrastinating.
Here’s the part I can never forget and helps me to keep going, in my success journey.
📌Discipline yourself to begin immediately and persist until the task is complete before you step into the next.
“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems sad and painful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness [right standing with God and a lifestyle and attitude that seeks conformity to God’s will and purpose].”
If you can discipline yourself enough to finish one task at a time, then you would have that much worry of complaining that there is no time.
I remember back then in school, when I always feel like time was too short for me to do all what I have to do all at once, but then again I asked myself,
Why the rush?
When you can still take it one at a time an still get same results.
So I sat down and made calculations, we have 24hrs in a day
Had to spilt 24hrs into all the task I had for the day into;
➡️Cleaning time, (Cleanliness is next to Godliness)😊✌️
➡️Meditation time ( A quiet time with God is very important, he created us for fellowship and he wants to build an intimate relationship with his own.)
➡️Study time : (Study to show yourself approved, school is not scam, don’t let people fool you into later regret, my darling.
➡️Counseling time( Because I was a student leader in my school at the time this was part of my responsibility)
➡️Working time(online marketing)
➡️Leisure time (eating/replying chats) ➡️Impromptu meetings* (of course those meetings will obviously shoot out in between your schedule as a leader and you have no choice than to respond to that responsibility.
➡️Sleeping time (of course, you need to rest, so that your brain will be active for the next day.
I organized my timetable and set reminder for each of this scheduled time, and purposed in my heart to follow through to achieve the desired success I needed for the academic year.
You maybe thinking if I really followed through, wasn’t it difficult, and exhausting?
Yes it was but I purposely decided to maintain the discipline if I need to succeed.
Finally, today I’m a graduate with honors and priviledeg to have leadership awards and certifications together with my degree.
And today, facing the “REAL WORLD” with that same DISCIPLINE” and “DETERMINATION”
Having that same hunger for knowledge and success, and I know this is just a stepping stone, I am getting there and so are you.
Tag along, if you are deciding from today, to put away procrastination and discipline yourself towards success.
