Preparation is the secret door to significance. Great achievers understand the importance of relentless preparation of their mind, body, emotions and key skills.
Exceptional athletes go through many years of painstaking preparation before turning up for the Olympics. Why? Because they are smart enough to know that the quality of their preparation will decide the quality of their performance. “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today,” rightly said by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
How Big Are Your Goals?
Do you have a big goal, dream or ambition? You will have to begin to prepare rigorously for it. In order for your invisible vision to become visible, you will have to put in place positive daily activities. You must initiate daily goals that will prepare you for the future that you desire. Your future will require continuous improvements in quality information, self-awareness, sufficient key skills and excellence.
Condition Your Mind For Success
If you desire an uncommon destiny, it then becomes imperative that you condition your mind daily for uncommon success – a deliberate act of programming yourself for accomplishment through focussed daily preparation. “Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure,” said Confucius.
A Proof of Belief
Preparation is one of the greatest proofs of belief. When you move from just talking about your desired future to actually training and developing yourself for it, you demonstrate confidence and belief that your future is a possibility.
Confidence is a potent energy for attraction. If you show confidence towards something, you will attract more of that same thing. On the other hand, whatever you show lack of confidence towards, you will repel.
In the same way, concerning preparation, the confidence that you demonstrate when you choose to start preparing for your desired future will begin to attract your desired future towards you. It is called the Law of Attraction.
“If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams, and endeavours to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours,” said Henry David Thoreau, the American philosopher. It is impossible to work into a great future that you’ve not qualified for through rigorous preparations.
Questions to Ponder Upon
