That little beginning is your success story in the future if you do not despise it. Basic reason for failure in life is refusal to do daily the small basic things that you know are good.
Mustard seeds are the small round seeds. The seeds are usually about 1 to 2 millimeters (0.039 to 0.079 in) in diameter. Mustard seed is very tiny seed, very insignificant when you hold it. But if the seed is planted and nurtured well, the same very insignificant seed will become a giant tree with great branches, where birds of the sky make their nests. The same tree will become a covering for man’s head from sunlight.
The story of a mustard seed becoming a giant tree is very inspiring. It makes us to know that no one should despise the little beginning. If you are committed to your call, no matter how the beginning looks like, the end will be great.
When Jim Rohn, the great American philosopher, was asked how he became successful while many of his friends did not, he simply said: “The answer is simple! The things I found to be easy to do, they found to be easy not to do. I found it easy to set the goals that could change my life. I found it easy to read the books that could affect my thinking or my ideas. They found that easy not to do. I found it easy to attend the classes and seminars, get around other successful people. They said it probably it wouldn’t matter. If I had to sum it up, I would say, what I found to be easy to do, they found it not to be easy to do. Six years later, I am a millionaire and they are still blaming the economy, the government, policies, yet they neglected to do the basic easy things.”
Every little things we do not pay attention to in life can either make or mar us. Do not despise the little beginning. That little beginning is your success story in the future if you do not despise it. Basic reason for failure in life is refusal to do daily the small basic things that you know are good. Do not allow the thought of I CAN’T to fill your heart. We all have what it takes to get to the top. The keys to your breakthrough are around you. In your shortcomings lie the potentials to attain the higher height you desire in life. To achieve your goals, do the simple things you know daily. Read great books that will ignite the fire in you; avoid negative thoughts, avoid wrong company; be good in all things and at all times, be diligent in whatever you are doing, never allow discouragement and frustration to enslave your mind, be sensitive to things around you, because opportunity to limelight will appear to you in disguise.
When a blacksmith is hitting an iron on the same spot, overtime the iron will give up to what the blacksmith desires to see. Likewise, if you can stand firm to pursue your dream, you will definitely get to your destination. Reject slothfulness and procrastination. One indiscipline and procrastination always lead to another, thereby making you to derail from your dreams. Focus is a bridge between goals and accomplishments. So, pay attention to the little things you do today and daily.
