To realize your chief goal, you must change your daily activities
By Chinenye Nwaogu
“You can never change your life until you change what you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
Action expresses priority.
Daily action reflects your priorities.
What you give time to reflects your most important priorities.
When you have decided to change your life, you have to examine the things you do daily and alter them to reflect the change you wish to effect in your life. You cannot achieve change of outcome or result doing the same things you used to do for which you feel change is needed. You are familiar with the old saying that you cannot expect a different result doing things the old ways.
Only a fool does that and you are not one. The secret of your success lies in the things you do daily. Forget overnight success, if there is anything like that, everyday offers you opportunity to add a building block to create the kind of life you wish to build. It is the things you do daily, the habit and attitudes you put up daily that gradually add up to the life you dream.
Once you have a dream of the kind of life you wished to live, you set goals on achieving your targets you then ensure that your daily routine reflects the direction you are heading. You can guess the destination by examining your daily routine. That is why it is better to live intentionally.
Be intentional about life and the things you do. Never let life just drive you along without a sense of mission. Anyone without a destination in mind will end up anywhere, sometimes not where they intended to arrive.
Always have a destination in mind first, and make plans to arrange your life to arrive there. Granted it may not all play out exactly how you have planned it but what you want and work for in life is certainly what you get at the end of the day.
Let your daily routine reflect the quality of life and attributes you need to arrive at the destination you have in mind. If you intend to arrive at a point somewhere in the North and enter a vehicle heading south, it may just be that you will hit south instead of the intended north.
Certain things you do daily are generally aligned to bring you to a particular destination, check properly with yourself if those reflect the intended destination. Many wise people have prescribed daily meditation and daily motivation to help guide your thought process and improve your overall daily routine.
Life has provided a whole lot of guide and support system for anyone willing to follow the path. The key word is being willing.
Many people act as if they are willing but not ready to pay the price required, to effect the changes in their daily routine needed to improve their life. Every change that does not require sacrifice may not have the power to generate the expected result or outcome. Once you observe that your life is certainly not headed the direction you wish, the best thing to do is to take a critical look at your daily routine, therein lies the secret of your success.
What do you spend most of your time and resources doing? Take out time regularly to ask yourself this question. Make it a personal accountability session. Be bold to face the realities of this session. Be honest with the responses, because in this session you will be the accused, the jury and the judge at the same time.
Wise people have suggested daily meditation, try it. Take time regularly to meditate and reflect about your life, it helps your perspective better.
There are simple and basic attributes that once you decide on early will help you improve your daily routine to achieve better result and life.
What of making daily decision to be happy irrespective of what the day brings along. You can decide to live a forgiving life even before people offend you.
