01-21-15 – Wednesday – Success Is the Sum of Small Efforts Repeated Day In, And Day Out

sum-of-success
You know, life is just about as simple as you want it to be. I am really starting to realize the effects of my slow and steady progress that I have made over the last several years. First in the area of minimalism, and then in all other area’s of life like work, play and health. It seems that the key to just about everything important is simply slowing down. Making small strong efforts on a consistent basis and realizing that over time these efforts add up to big pay offs.

By simply adding a small amount of extra funds to debt each month, and doing this on a consistent basis the debt will be paid off. By reducing clutter in your home each day for just 10 minutes will lead to a minimalist, no stress living that is wonderful to come home to at the end of the day. By changing your diet just slightly each day until you reach a point where you realize that you are eating just healthy, whole foods will lead to better health. And by simply doing a small workout each day and repeating this day in and day out, will get you to a point where you feel really good.

It sounds pretty simple, but in practice it is very difficult. We are geared towards the attitude of “Get it Done”. Once we start a project, it seems just natural to push and strive to get that project done. Sometimes this attitude is appropriate, but it does not apply to all aspect of our lives. Does the seed when planted grow into a beautiful, delicious vegetable in just 3 days? No, it follows the natural pattern of nature and nurtures the sun and water each day and builds and incredible, great tasting fruit that only through the principles of time could it flourish. Our lives too are built around this slow and steady pattern of nature. When we try to work against this balance, it is then we quickly learn much failure.

So, slow down in your efforts and embrace each day for what each day brings into our lives. You just might find great joy.
