Swing right and the Homerun will come
Success a lot say is a result of huge dreams. Oftentimes though, we fail to understand that the true measure of success is not what have been acheived, but lies in the journey to achieve them.
If we study the lives of really sucessful individuals, though their goals are clear to them, their focus always lie on the steps made. The process that they had to go through. The moments they had to string up to enable them to move toward that goal.
Nothing is truly crystal clear to anybody. Even if they think their goal is as clear as a position they want to have, a house they want to buy, an award they want to get, the way to achieve these goals is never ever quite as visible. Those who are truly succcessful have worked their way through these obstacles by staying, focusing and working through each moment.
The irony as most successful people share is that keeping focus on the goal often prevents them from making the most of their moments…instances that are integral to getting to their goal. Some even say that their initial failures were caused by how they wanted people to see them as rather than just simply being themselves.
Take the case of athletes. Almost all the great athletes started learning their sport of choice at a very early age. Tiger of golf, Arod or baseball, Lebron of basketball and Mayweather of boxing. All these individuals had to go through hours and hours of skills training broken down per section, per muscle, per movement. Everyone had to go through the basics with their coaches telling them to focus on one movement at a time. To isolate and train that muscle to do exactly what it needs to do.
