“Those who wish to sing, always find a song.” Swedish Proverb
From all the books I’ve read in the last few years on self improvement, what I’ve learned is that if you want to live your life from good to Great, you must commit to one thing – constant and never ending improvement!
Anthony Robbins, one of my favorite success gurus, called it “CANI” – Constant And Never Ending-Improvement.
Yes, if you want to produce amazing results in your life, you must learn constantly. If you want to be the top in your industry or the field you’re in, you must have a desire to improve all the time.
This is how Japan became one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world. The Japanese constantly improve the quality of their cars because they commit to CANI, or in Japanese, they called it Kaizen.
And this is exactly what you need if you want to turn your life from good to Great.
Now let’s take a example of reading, if you commit to read a book in a month, you’ll have read 12 books in a year. And do you think these 12 books are going to change the way you look at life and help you to improve your life in a year?
Obviously, the answer is a BIG YES!
If a book will change your life by just a little bit, by the end of a year, you’ll totally become a new person who will live a great life. What if you read two books in a month? I guess you know the answer.
Anthony Robbins has read more than 700 books in the field of personal development, this is what makes him the top person in this area and he makes millions of dollars in this industry.
Leaders are readers. Constantly improving yourself little by little, you’re going to create big changes after a long time. The key is consistency. You’ve to consistently take small action each and every day to improve the quality of your life. Even if it is just a small action such as a phone call, writing down your goal or spend 30 minutes into reading.
What you do every day is going to determine what you’re going to get in the future.
See, “The best time to plan for the next 10 years is now, not 10 years from now”. Understand this statement and reread it if you don’t understand it.
Many people never do anything about their future. Let me tell you this, 10 years from now will surely come, the only question then will be, where will you be?
Will you still be in the same place doing the same thing and thinking the same thought? How are you going to use that 10 years? What do you want to accomplish in these years?
Find out the answer right now, write them all down and start to create plans and take massive action to achieve them. As I always say Do React Now!
It is now that is going to determine your future. What you do now is going to affect what you’re going to get in the future. And if you’re not doing anything, you’ll stay the same when the time will come.
Do you know that the first best time to plant a tree is when you were born into this world? And do you know when the second best time to plant is? The second best time is now!
So commit yourself to constant and never ending improvement from now on. If you have missed the chance of making it as a habit in the past, now will be the perfect time for you. And don’t wait for another 10 years to do this. You don’t have much time left to waste. Start today, in fact start right now, because here goes the second, here goes another, here’s another and all the power in the world can’t bring this time back.
This is how successful people are able to turn their life around. In the beginning, they may seem like doing something that is wasting their time and getting no results. However, after a long time, their effort will start to pay off. This is the real power of consistency.
And this is the power that you must learn and acquire right now. It will change your life forever.
I hope you will take action now and achieve your dreams. And don’t forget you don’t have much time to waste! Start Now!
