Success Through The Power Of Daily Action


Daily actions to achieve your goals means daily progress and daily excitement as you start to feel your dreams are actually coming true.

As you take action daily, you cannot fail to realize that you are moving steadily towards your goal and this can only fill you with growing enthusiasm and the belief that, at long last, you will achieve your goal whatever it is.

If you don't take daily action, you leave a vacuum for doubts to creep in. They will puncture the tyres of your band wagon before you have realised it.

You also leave an empty space in your life which will soon be filled by other priorities.

Five years ago, I nearly finished a book on how to make Religious Education fun. I made the mistake of not working on it daily and before I realized it, other activities like attempts at network marketing had taken over and I lost the excitement of completing a great project based on years of teaching Religious Education in London comprehensive schools.

I had wasted a life time's effort and knowledge.

However, recently I restarted this project on a daily basis and am completing what I had begun five years ago. I am working daily on the book which has now turned into a series of books.

The first one, called "Hit The Target", has already been completed. The second one is nearly completed. The excitement and enthusiasm are back.

I also know now that if I again start leaving gaps in my daily activity on the book, I will lose momentum and could even end up not finishing the project again.

Once you feel the momentum of progress, don't stop and relax. Keep going and strike, in the time honoured phrase, while the iron is hot. Momentum is precious. Daily activity will maintain it. Leaving gaps in your daily activity will not.

To make sure that I keep up daily activity, I make writing the book or series of books a major priority which I begin as early as possible in the day.

Daily activity keeps your project, whatever it is, clearly in your mind. Your brain is buzzing with ideas. If you start leaving gaps, the ideas and the images can soon become vague little clouds on the far horizon.

The same thing happens with physical activity or learning any skill involving physical movement. Daily practice or exercise will allow you to see and feel the progress you are making. Start leaving gaps and you will start forgetting to practise or exercise.

I teach a great modern martial art called Choikwangdo to my students twice a week. I praise them for turning up twice a week in all kinds of weather but I also urge them to practise daily at home as well.

For one thing they have to learn many forms or patterns of movement. If they don't practise daily they will start forgetting these forms and fail to perform them with power and conviction. They will relive the nightmare of the actor who has failed to practise his lines on a daily basis.

Those who practise daily stand out from the rest like an eagle among chickens. They also enjoy what they are doing far more and they start to feel the excitement of turning into a powerful and awesome blackbelt.

I have achieved a little skill with the nunchaku after practising daily for one or two demonstrations but once I dropped the daily practice, my skill and enthusiasm diminished rapidly.

Obviously, you can't do everything every day. But try to make the activities that are important to you daily ones. Failing that, perform them every other day or even weekly or, as a last resort, monthly.

If you do something on a consistent basis even if it is not daily, you can still make visible progress.

But if you want to take the route of powerful, accelerated and exciting progress, practise daily! You may have the occasional lapse of focus and leave gaps at times. If you do, read this article again and get back on track! Good luck!
