Power of your thoughts and belief
Difference between possibility and impossibility is that of one’s attitude of belief or disbelief. The story of success begins with courage to see higher dreams. One should see a dream higher than what he normally thinks is possible. It does not take any more energy to create a big dream than it does to create a little one. Robert Fitz says, “If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.”
After having a right goal with right belief there is a need of right action to convert dream into a reality. Of course, there is no substitute to hard work but what really pays is smart work. In the final analysis a smart worker is an intelligent hard worker. The first and foremost condition of smart work is that you should be able to simplify your task and should be able to make it interesting too. One cannot do a work for long and cannot be creative in that till the time he enjoys it.
Right action is required to convert your dreams into reality
The world belongs to dreamers and believers. All the discoveries and inventions are achievements of lofty dreamers and firm believers. But these dreams and believes could not become realities till the time they were supported by right actions. It is said, thought without action is abortion. Therefore there is a need of right action in right time for converting any dream into reality. Right action includes a relevant approach, systematic planning and timely implementation. The first condition of right action is ability to be organized because you can get the best results from your mind only when you are organized. When you are organized, power of your mind develops manifold, your mind becomes magnetic.
Necessity of Relevant approach towards chosen task
Being relevant with approach towards your chosen task is like being on right path to your destination. All efforts become useless when you are irrelevant with your approach. In fact it is disastrous to work hard with irrelevant approach because more you would try farther you will be from your destination. Being irrelevant is like moving from Delhi in north direction towards Chandigarh while willing to go to Jaipur which is in south direction to Delhi. Faster you move in wrong direction farther you will be from your goal. Therefore it’s advisable to invest sufficient time in understanding the actual requirements of goal and developing right kind of software to get desired results from yourself.
Being relevant in approach is a real challenge. This is like being in right track when we move for a destination. It’s an old saying that well begun is half done.
The next step of right action is systematic planning. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. A result oriented planning needs a thorough understanding of the task taken, the amount of resources available and meticulous allotment of time and energy. If you are asked how to eat elephant, definitely you cannot say that one should open his/her mouth and try to bite the elephant from anywhere he/she can and finish in one go. A correct approach should be to first cut it into small pieces and then eat them one by one with proper allotment of time.
Thus if your task related to your goal looks huge and tough like an elephant, you need to cut and classify your entire task into small assignments for yourself and then these assignments should be allotted with time and energy. It’s important to remember that the planning should be practical which can be genuinely followed. Developing a right planning is a method of being organized with your efforts. By this method the whole task and journey to success will be simplified and will also be made interesting. You will be inspired to move step by step towards your goal.
Right implementation of systematic planning
Implementation is the third and final step of right action. Without it all the things will remain in air. Whatever has been intelligently planned should be sincerely implemented. One of the most crucial aspects of implementation is efficient time management. It requires a very pragmatic allotment of time to different things, prioritization of tasks and timely completion of the tasks. Those who are success oriented have minimum possible gaps between their planning and implementation, whereas failure oriented people always keep complaining against shortage of time. They always find a lot of works pending and remain also in stress because of this. They also tend to procrastinate their works. You should set a target with framework of time and try to meet it. This will boost your confidence and prepare you for higher tasks. In order to get time bound result from yourself you have to give training of speed to your mind. As in 100 meter race, a racer practices in a given time to himself and run again to meet the target of that time, similarly in your studies you can cover more things in less time by giving repeated time bound practice to your mind. You can power up your mind for a speedy and quality coverage of your planned assignments. Habit of giving relaxed time framework makes your mind slow and lethargic.
Right action in fact is a smart way of doing anything. To sum up, not hard workers but smart workers get desired results.
