Today I wanted to share with you the number #1 secret of successful productive people and it’s one lesson that I truly want you to internalise and apply in your life.
you ready? Here it is:
secret of successful productive people
is this: their success is not dependent on the amount of work or effort they put
in but it’s related to their consistency. Let me say that
differently; success in life is never about the astronomical workload or the
end goal you achieve, but it’s about creating a habit that’s easily followed
throughout ones life.
give you few examples:
- If you
want to memorise the Quran, don’t worry about the humongous task you
and have the 600+ pages you need to memorize, instead, focus on memorising
half a page or a few lines each day.
- If you have stacks and stacks of
personal development book you know you should read, but dread having to go
through them, don’t be anxious about reading them all at once, instead, focus
on reading a few pages of a book each day.
- If you look yourself in the
mirror and not happy with being overweight and an unhealthy lifestyle, don’t
stress about losing all weight your weight at once or following an impossible
diet, instead, focus on creating healthier habits that stays with you for
moves quickly and when you stay consistent on a successful habit, no matter how
small, you’ll be surprised after one year or two that not only did you achieved
your goal but you’ve surpassed it many times!
give you a practical example: Imagine you dedicate one hour to do the following
every single day:
- 15 minutes to memorise few verses of Quran.
- 30 minutes to walk briskly
around your block.
- 15 minutes to read a personal
few years, of being consistent with the above habits, what do you
expect the results to be?
the above by just spending one hour per day!
is all about creating successful habits; nothing more, nothing less. If I
were to summarise all the above, I’ll summarise it in the hadeeth of prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) who said: “The most beloved of deeds to
Allah are those that are most consistent, even if it is small.” [Collected
