Persistent Effort: The subject of Today’s Success Quote from Robert Collier
Today’s Success Quote
From American author of self-help and New Thought metaphysical books, Robert Collier
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. – Robert Collier
Success takes effort, persistent effort. Sometimes attained by luck or chance, but mostly by effort and work. Yesterday I wrote about how in order to be successful, one must first take action. And it is important to take that first actionable step. But it is equally if not more important to continue taking action. It is necessary to keep yourself active doing the things that will bring you closer to achieving your objective(s).
I chose the image of the clock above to help illustrate how over time (no pun intended here), what can happen with consistent effort. Imagine if time was tangible matter and the clock was the maker of time. The seconds, minutes, days, weeks, months and even years that pass by would become a physical creation. A clock has many working parts, but all a clock does is move one part consistently (in some cases with momentum) and that effort then makes the other parts move and so on. Some clocks work nonstop and much time passes. There are some clocks that have consistent motion, creating persistent effort for decades. Imagine if the sum of those small efforts repeated day in and day out would be the result of tangible time!
Be Persistent in Your Effort
As you strive towards your own success (whatever that may mean to you), think about your effort as a mechanical clock, and the success you are creating is a “year”. Imagine that you will ticktock one second at a time, consistently day in and day out, until you have created 31,536,000 seconds. That would require some focus, dedication and persistence! Now take that focus, dedication and persistence and apply it to your real situation. Much like how a brick layer will lay bricks until the edifice is built, you can do much the same with your life. The sum of your repeated efforts will culminate into your success.
