Success Is The Sum Of Small Efforts…


I have come across countless people with a mindset not far from that of the amateur gambler in relation to success. This common mindset which has landed and continues to land many in failure is the same that has pushed many gamblers into uncontrollable debt.

Having a sky scraping desire to achieve success is a positive step towards life, in fact, such a mindset is the needed foundation to achieving success.

However, the above mindset should not turn one into a hasty climber. Success does not come with a sudden jump. It comes to those who crawl, build up the needed momentum to walk and then proceed to run.

Success is a concept which is better understood and easily achieved with patience and consistency. As Robert Collier once echoed “Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out”.

You must have the patience and discipline to consistently put into whatever you are aiming to achieve “small efforts” day in and day out. That is the only effective way of achieving success without taking the high risk of throwing a gamble at your target.

As we commence a new week, start putting in the little that you can towards your goal. Success despises the last minute approach. If it is an examination that lies ahead of you, do not wait till the last minute to attempt doing all the learning, small efforts each day will build you up for the success you desire.

You must bear in mind that, success is simply the sum of all the small efforts one has geared towards a particular goal.

Do not be like the various amateur gamblers deluded by their sky scrapping desire for success, hence would put all they have with the hope to hit the jackpot. Success is not a jackpot. It is the output of years, months and days of little and little labour.
