Future

The future’s not set in stone.How your goals can be? Your ambition needs to be flexible,not replaceable,to adapt to the future.You replace,you start from the scratch.But when you flex – you grow,you change,you modify,you become better.

Solution

Some problems are unsolvable,or at the very least,they do not have one definite solution.But in the pursuit of solving such issues,we sometimes end up solving some unanswered questions we did not intend to solve.I guess there is always a bright side no matter the scale.

Willpower

Key to self-control is not abstinence.It is reinforcement.

Abstinence will just make you more hungry.Reinforcement will keep the hunger at bay.

Abstinence equals to eternal monotony.Reinforcement equals to reward you earn for your hard work.

People work (whether they like to or not) for the rewards.May it be tangible or intangible.Nobody works for work itself.People use work as means to reach to an end.

Notice

Distraction is the key to developing focus.You can only travel towards focus,when you are aware that you have drifted towards distraction.

You need direction.If you don’t know which way to go,you can follow the path other than where you have no need to go.

Building a tolerance begins with enduring the unwanted.It provides a clear goal: ‘I want this’ and ‘I do not wish that’.

Not only one should be aware about what they aspire to be,but also of what they don’t want to be.Knowing that,you can make better,more refined choices in life.

What other ways can you develop focus?

Cycle

Don’t aim to become smart.or strong.or kind.These qualities have no particular definition,standard,metric or limit.

Aim to become smarter.stronger.kinder.Strive to become better even by the tiniest fraction every moment.

In the end,it is the small steps that cover long milestones.You cannot achieve everything in one go.Live this moment.Cherish it.Improve.Take a step up.And repeat.

Drive

Motivation can be a consequence of good planning rather than intense emotion.It is the difference between ‘work smart’ and ‘work hard’ respectively.

When your motivation is dependent on your emotion,and as we know our emotions are never constant,sometimes we get either a fleeting moment or short-term motivation boost,or else a severe blow due to negative or overwhelming emotion.

When you plan out your agenda,you have with you a long-term,step-by-step procedure to follow.With every step you take,you reinforce a positive feedback loop of motivation – you undertake a simple task,you attain some success and that motivates you to move onto the next step.

Emotions and feelings are exhaustible resource.Even the right feeling is hard to come by when you are about to start working on a new goal.They are good enough to help you out in short-run,but in the long-run,planning plays a better role.

Planning is a mix of various objective tasks.It allows you to experience a mental reward every-time you complete a step.It is like leveling-up in a game when you complete a certain number of quests.

Being completely objective can result in lack of commitment,and being completely subjective can result in lack of consistency.You need both in moderation together to overcome the odds and obstacles hindering your progress.
