Since the beginning of time, people have always been looking for short cuts on their pathway to success. This could be for anything from weight loss, to money, fame, and even emotional or physical healing. At this day and age, we are greatly influenced by social media and everything turns into a comparison game. We see friends, family members, and social celebrities getting to the places they want to be in what seems like short periods of time. “What a transformation” we believe? “Was it an overnight success?” “What is their secret?”

But that is the thing, there is no secret and everybody wants to sell you on the secret, the quick fix, the overnight solution. This is your friendly reminder that there is doesn’t exist, and long lasting success in any framework starts with these three principles.

Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

We’ve all done it. We compare our looks, our age, or status to other people. We feel we are disadvantaged about some aspect of our life and that stops us from visualizing the success we could have through our own journey.

Each path is unique, so don’t look at someone else in parallel to your own path. The only place you should be using comparison is with yourself. Are you improving over time?

Commitment & Consistency

Good things come to those who wait. With commitment and consistency, you must also be patient. The day you plant the seed is not the same day you harvest the fruit.

I don’t know about you, but this is one of the hardest parts for me. Sometimes, there is nothing MORE you must do other than wait (and be patient). Rest periods are required for growth and change. Get really at learning that sometimes less is more. There may be short term ways of cheating to success, but you can’t out run patience.

Just think about it, coffee is not a replacement for sleep. Temporarily coffee will make you feel more energized, but if your sleep hygiene is poor, you’re going to burn out sooner or later. Everything has a maintenance regime. Rest, recovery, and patience are all part of this process.
