The Approach

A lot of people go through life by taking short-cuts however if you are to achieve success in whatever you endeavour to achieve there are no short cuts. You might have gone through school by cramming for exams and probably got away with it; but with this recipe to success you cannot cram in order to achieve the desired results. You cannot skip the unpleasant parts and just cherry pick what you want and then expect to have the desired results. Just like I explained in my previous posting the path to success is like baking you are following a recipe there are different ingredients, you cannot leave some out and just make do with those you like.

As a matter of fact this recipe to success which we will reveal in subsequent posts shares the same natural cycle that governs farming. I do not know if you are familiar with farming, my parents were subsistent farmers and there was a natural cycle that we followed I cannot imagine it being done any other way. In Zimbabwe where I was born the farming season started just on the on-set of the rainy season which came around October/November which is also the start of a very long African summer. The preparation of the land was first, tilling and weeding then you would plant the seeds on instinct of that it would not be two or three days before the first rains fell, and naturally we would wait for the planted seeds to germinate. As the plants shoot from the ground and start their growth, we had to pay attention we had to taking out weeds that would choke the growth of our plants and take the nutrients intended for our plants. We had to wait right when the plants have matured to harvest them for corn which is commonly farmed by subsistence farmers such as my parents. As I have illustrated above farming follows a natural process which however impatient you are you will have to follow. Suppose you decide you do want to till the land and will just go ahead and plant the seeds, the rain might not permeate the top soil in order to germinate the seeds. Say you decide to skip the planting of the seeds and will just wait the harvest; well I do not have to tell you what you will find come harvest time.
Before we delve in there is an essential fact that we need to address; the issue of scepticism or doubt which is essentially lack of faith. One important aspect is to acknowledge that you have probably failed that is why you are reading this and that the path that we will reveal has worked for countless people who have found success both in their chosen vocations and as well as their personal life. You cannot go into this half-hearted it is not about trying and then seeing what will happen. It will produce half hearted results, with the path it is black and white, there is no middle ground here, it is either that you are in or you are out, you cannot sit on the fence, you have to give this your all if you want the desired results. Remember that what you sow is what you reap; you can expect a different result to that that you put in. As Johann Wolf van Goethe said;

“Nature understands no jesting. She is always true, always serious, always severe. She is always right, and the errors and faults are always those of man”.

In my next post we will look at defining success and the importance of knowing what you want.
