I do this by daily habits (7 days a week) of working-out , meditating, posting 5 videos on YouTube (35 per week), posting on Instagram, reading 2 hours, socializing every day and more!
The focus is almost entirely on the effort part, I don't ask myself "when are the results coming?", simply because I do the actions that I know for sure produce results.
And so as the days pass, my body gets stronger and leaner, my business is growing, I'm getting many more followers and subscribers, as-well as clients. I'm becoming more and more even-keeled and mindful, learning more every day and getting new ideas, and creating new social connections all the time.
I am a living realization of the famous quote, "Success requires both urgency and patience. Be urgent about making the effort, and patient about seeing the results." by Ralph Marston
Urgency is put every day on accomplishing my goals, as evident by you reading a new article by me every day. The growth takes care of itself since I'm focusing on primary actions that create growth.
And by the way, what's cool about growth is that many times it's the exponential type, meaning the more you grow the faster you grow. Invest your time in daily habits that promote growth, through good times and bad times, you'll waste all the time you didn't - since you could have been super fit, very mindful, much smarter, or have had a massive following already, if you had just started 12 months ago.
Think about it.
Or even better,
Commit to daily growth.
