In the busyness of life, we tend to think everything happens quickly. We believe in overnight successes and fast track passes. But in actuality, very few things happen fast. They are the result of consistent steps of progress. And discipline is the key to consistency.
Discipline takes determination to continue to move forward even when it looks or feels like we’re not progressing. Rewards are inevitable with hard work. Next time you’re tempted to take the fast track method or look for shortcuts remember that long-term success takes time. Build something that will last. Slow and steady wins the race.
