The post Next Time! talks of the power of those two little words and how remembering them and speaking them to yourself can be very empowering. After an action or an event, thinking about how it can be different or better Next Time, immediately instructs the brain to be creative, to think positively.
Related to this is another little word and idea I like and that is Until! “I will keep going until”. This can also be an empowering little word to remember because it acts as a reminder not to give up too early..
“I will keep the lessons up until I pass my driving test”
“I’m going to practice my serve until I am the best at the club”
“I will practice until I can play that piece perfectly”
“I will up my marketing efforts until I have reached that target number of customers”
The late Jim Rohn said “How long do you give your average baby to learn to walk?” You give as long as it takes of course! Until!
When in our development as humans, do we learn to give up so easily? We perceive work as hard, as pain and we give up too early. Maybe just before a breakthrough that we’ll never know was possible.
Sometimes it is appropriate to stop flogging a dead horse. Of course it is important to learn if something is futile. If there is real hope and purpose to a cause though, keeping going until you get there is a mindset and discipline that can reap massive rewards.
