Microwave dinners, overnight diets, 5 hour energy drinks, 1 minute drying nail polish, 1 hour dry cleaning. These are just a few of the things that feed our need for instant gratification. In a world where 24 hours appears to be a lifetime for anything to get finished, it’s almost second nature to think that quick results are supposed to happen in all aspects of our lives. We must remind ourselves that instant success or results don’t always occur especially with dealing with our dreams and for a good reason!
Don’t Have To See to Believe: When you are in the process of creating a new idea, project or business there is a ton of foundation work you must lay before you build up the entire picture. You must keep in mind all of the energy and work that you’ve done and currently are doing is not going to waste just because the results have not appeared yet. Remember people will see the gorgeous house at the end but if the foundation is not built correctly it will soon tumble.
All About Timing: Even though you have this fabulous idea to add to your business or project, everything unfolds at the right time. It may be frustrating that an event or the next step to your plan is being delayed but it’s for a purpose. Everything in life happens for a specific reason. Even the times that seem like setbacks are really just set ups that are preparing you for your next success.
Bright Future: Yes, instant dinners are convenient but wouldn’t you rather have a home cooked meal? I’m sure everyone reading this would. Well, it’s the same when building on your business. Yes, overnight success can happen but chances are, you wouldn’t have learned all the tools to handle what has been given to you. By embracing the journey and paying attention to the lessons you’ve obtained, you’re preparing for longevity.
Every step you take towards your ultimate goal is an investment in your dream which means your energy and hard work is not going in vain. The key is focusing on giving your best on every step so your ultimate goal will be simply amazing! Everything comes along at the right place and right time, so just enjoy the journey!
