Don’t Neglect what makes your Success easy
Things to become successful are not that difficult.
Sometimes they’re so easy that people neglect doing them.
It’s easy to set the goals that could change people’s life. They found it easy not to do. It’s easy to read the books that could affect people’s thinking and their ideas. They found that easy not to do. It’s easy to attend the classes and the seminars, and to get around other successful people. They said it probably really wouldn’t matter. Sum it up, and you would say what you found to be easy to do, they found to be easy not to do. Some years later, some are a millionaire and other are all still blaming the economy, the government, and company policies, yet they neglected to do the basic, easy things.
In fact, the primary reason most people are not doing as well as they could and should, can be summed up in a single word: neglect.
It is not the lack of money—banks are full of money. Nore the lack of opportunity—much of the Free World, continues to offer the most unprecedented and abundant opportunities in the last six thousand years of recorded history. Even not the lack of books—libraries are full of books and they are free! It is not the schools—the classrooms are full of good teachers. We have plenty of ministers, leaders, counselors and advisors.
Everything we would ever need to become rich and powerful and sophisticated is within our reach. The major reason that so few take advantage of all that we have is simply neglect.
Neglect is like an infection.
Left unchecked it will spread throughout our entire system of disciplines and eventually lead to a complete breakdown of a potentially joy-filled and prosperous human life.
Not doing the things we know we should do causes us to feel guilty and guilt leads to an erosion of self-confidence. As our self-confidence diminishes, so does the level of our activity. As our activity diminishes, our results inevitably decline. And as our results suffer, our attitude begins to weaken. And as our attitude begins the slow shift from positive to negative, our self-confidence diminishes even more… and on and on it goes.
So, when giving the choice of “easy to” and “easy not to”, do not neglect to do the simple, basic, “easy,” but potentially life-changing activities and disciplines.
