The longer the advance time you can invest in your success, the greater the payoff will be. All the extra energy and effort will pay off down the line, if for no other reason than that there is much less competition.
Most people are oriented to an immediate payoff. They can’t financially afford to wait, or they aren’t emotionally capable of being patient. It’s estimated that only one person in ten will put effort into anything unless the payoff is within a year’s time. It follows, then, that only one of the ten is emotionally capable of investing time, energy, money, or sacrifice into something that won’t be profitable for five years of longer.
Meditate upon your willingness to invest the effort and energy for a future payoff. Consider writing this simple reminder and putting it in places where you’ll see it regularly: “I spend each moment doing the most productive thing I can.” Let this statement from you to yourself become your affirmation for success.
Peace and Light,
