We live in a world where everything needs to happen instantly. We want to learn as fast as we can. We want our training to be quick and easy. We expect to find the answer at the click of a button. We live in an instant world. And if we have to wait in line at a store for more than a couple of minutes, we get irritated or angry. We have about 180 seconds of tolerance, that’s it!

In this instant world it is hard to succeed at anything.

It is difficult to achieve big goals because we are not use to waiting for anything. We want everything instantly. Even our morning coffee can be set on timer so we do not have to lose precious minutes brewing our cup of Joe. To be able to learn how to use focused thought you first have to change your life from instantly to persistently.

Persistently is the course you need to set. When you change your expectancy from instantly to persistently, you will gain an advantage that many do not have. That will be the advantage of time. Time works against those who live instantly. Things have no time to develop. Opportunities are never seen because when something doesn’t happen instantly, the person moves on to the next thing on their list. They may even go to the next goal and deem the current goal as a failure.

Persistent people have the advantage of time.

Time is an asset. It allows them to step back and do nothing, observe and assess the progress of the task or goal that they are pursuing. Some things take longer to develop, some things take longer to learn, and some things just need to be put out there and left for a while to find its own way.

When you live instantly you gain and lose instantly. Most of the time you do not know how you got there or how to get back, so it is not repeatable. When you live persistently you learn how things work. You learn how to correct and adjust a plan and how to guide it to make it successful. You do not panic because you know you have more than enough time. We write about this in our book, Your Invincible Power: Tame Your Ego and Fuel Your Ambition- -

I Want It Instantly?

Every once in a while slow down and do nothing. Slow down and the take time to think. Slow down and enjoy the journey. Slow down and have fun. If what you are doing is not fun then stop doing it and do something else.

Everything you do should be in pursuit of having a better tomorrow than you had yesterday. This means that you have to take time to grow your abilities to reach the goals that you set for yourself. It means that you have to be persistent in your dedication to the goal that you set and not get discouraged because your success is not instant.

Hold the feeling of excitement from the beginning of your journey to the end. Celebrate each step along the way. People that live instantly don’t take time to celebrate each step. They don’t take time to appreciate what they have accomplished. They are just looking for the next thing that they can get instantly.

You must be grateful for the time it takes to reach your goal and celebrate each step. Persistence will get you there if you really want to get there.

Know this…

Your NOW is only temporary, make sure your tomorrow brings more good things.
