Effort (A second step towards yourself) lesson2: Last week we’ve learned to have faith in ourselves, to have faith in the process but now it’s time to take our second step to put some effort on it. There is one article that says” We all know that some people have faith but they don’t put any effort, while some people put the effort but they don’t have the proper faith”.
But do we really know the real meaning of effort? What is effort? Why it is important in our life?
I Googled it and it says “Making hard physical or mental work” and it is important because it “keeps us focused on success”. It teaches us that we can do more better than we thought. We know everything but are we really putting those efforts in our life? Are we really giving our best at the moment? And the answer is No. BTS member Jungkook once said “Effort makes you, how you really are, you will regret someday if you don’t do your best now”. And yes, it’s true.
We as humans always need motivation to make a single effort towards ourselves. I know it’s a harsh reality but it’s true. But what if I tell you that we don’t get over everything all at once. Life doesn’t become better in a day; Discipline is more important than motivation because there’s no rule book for making efforts for yourself for your life, there’s no ten steps program, there’s no timeline. Definition of effort is different for everyone and is an experience that’s unique for each of us. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to stay afloat, there always will be a time when your legs give up and you sink deep into the heaviness of your heart. But all I want from you is keep going, it may take time, but there’s nothing that gets worse due to practising.
All I want from you is to make an effort towards building a habit, toward building a discipline. Don’t think it’s too late but keep working on it. Because in reality it’s never too late to change your life, it’s never too late to become the person you have always hoped you could be, it’s never too late to love yourself the way you have always wanted to love. We often forget that we are not bounded by our past, we don’t have to make the same mistakes again and again, we have to believe that we are never too old, never too jaded, never too broken to take our first step towards a small effort that can make a big difference in our life. And trust me –it’s never too late to take the advantage of “it’s never too late” it’s never too late to make that one effort for yourself. Today’s reminder for you is: “a little effort each day adds up a big result and can make a big difference in our life”.
