We live in a fast fast world. It seems almost everything around is geared toward the quick and the immediate. We not only want results, we want them RIGHT NOW. And, when results don’t happen as quickly as we’d like, we get frustrated. And when we get frustrated, we tend to stop trying.
And when we stop trying, well, we pretty much guarantee we won’t get results.
But think, for a moment, about the things in life that last: architecture, monuments, societies, relationships…they aren’t built overnight. They take time to grow; to develop. They grow gradually, steadily. Personal goals and achievements are exactly the same way. They take time-most worthwhile things do. Sometimes it happens quickly and we are delighted, but most of the time, those worthwhile accomplishments require putting one foot in front of the other, day in and day out until, finally, we arrive at our goal. Sure, there are setbacks, but setbacks aren’t permanent-they are simply bumps in the road.
So although we live in a drive-thru-instant-overnight-microwave kind of world, just remember in all things: Slow and steady wins the race.
