'Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out' (Robert Collier)

Taking this quotation further, what are five specific things that you can go every day to move you toward your goal? If every day you would go to a very large tree and take five swings at it with a very sharp ax, eventually, no matter how large the tree, it would have to come down! How very simple and how very true! Look what sustained effort could eventually do. Will these things happen overnight? No. But look at what you could do in a year, or even a decade! Furthering one of Anthony Robbins' quotations from a previous TFTD.

What Might You Do?

What might you accomplish if you were to do a little bit, five things, every day for the next 40 years toward the accomplishment of you goal. If you wrote 5 pages a day, that would be 73,000 pages of text. That's the equivalent of 234 books of 300 pages each! If you saved £5 a day that would be £73,000. Enough for 4 around the world trips! The Rule of 5. A pretty powerful little principle, wouldn't you agree?

I've been posting lately about a polluted creek I found. I'm going to take five peaces of trash out every day and see what I can do.

@luppers, Definitely we need Discipline and if we have discipline then we can put efforts into Practice. The unfortunate aspect is, nowadays people need results too fast and wish that to stay for long term, if we build something in short term how it will stay for long term because in short term we cannot build solid foundation and for solid foundation we have to push ourselves day in and day out until we reach our ultimate goals, and for solid foundation, path is long term.

And to reach ultimate goal we have to practice towards small step goals which will help us slowly reaching in close to our ultimate position.

Keep up the good and motivating work and stay blessed.

Yes, that is true. Yes there is the dichotomy of wanting to have instant gratification and also being disciplined and focus for a long period of time. How do we find that balance? You are welcome, feel free to share more thoughts in the future! 75% upvote!

In my opinion, balance comes from understanding and accepting the situation. When things get tougher many try to leave their efforts behind because they fail to accept the situation, until we accept something we cannot put our best or we cannot achieve the balance.

Thank you so much and definitely i will consume your boosting and motivating writing pieces. Have a joyful time ahead.

Acceptance is important but a difficult action to have, especially when things are difficult. Fantastic, thank you for the kind words! Feel free to share your thoughts in the future! 35% upvote!
