Everyone fails at something
Today I am going to share with you a very easy to learn principle ‘Just matter of 1’ which will help you in putting efforts and will ease you mentally to keep going.
Have you ever gone through any situation where you have worked very hard to achieve something, and your every attempt has failed?
You put forth all your energy and work hard, but after a certain moment, you reach a point where you simply stop putting the effort and quit. Is it?
Yes ! it happens with everyone.
But today I am going to share with you a story( told by my college principal), which may help you in your life; when you will be at that quitting point at something. It really works. I have experienced it.
Just a matter of 1
We all know that the water has 3 states, solid, liquid, and gas.
Now if you raise the temperature of the water, it will raise from the normal temperature to 30, 40, 50 or 60…80 degrees…then 85degrees…and so on.
Even if it reaches 99 degrees, it’s only our usual ‘water’ or we can say ‘hot water’.
Only with 100 degrees water boils. And with boiling water comes steam. Oh …it’s the same water but now with a power, now it can move a target with a force.
You read it right …the same water which has traveled all the way from room temperature to 100 degrees and more, is now capable enough to power locomotive ,engine , or to cook potatoes/eggs and what not.
Isn’t that marvelous! Just one degree….
It really matters.
So can you imagine? That one extra degree makes all the difference.
We all have experienced that whenever Sachin is at his 99, we cross our fingers.
Why? 99 is not a bad score, right? But what matters is that single run, which is required to make the record.
Just a single run. Which matters.
In our real life also, ‘one extra’ degree separates good from great. And most of the time, it’s that point where we normally quit. Isn’t that true? Now what to do at such moment?
You just need to train your mind, whenever it tries to enter in the negative mode to think “now it’s enough, it’s not possible hereafter”.
You have to think carefully that only 1 more is required …we are at 99.
That’s it. And then see the magic. You will turn the water to steam.
Let there be many challenges in life, we should not give up. In fact we need to to turn the challenges to opportunities. Right ?
It’s important to be positive while putting in the effort even when the task seems tough. Keep putting in the time and energy into the goals that you want to accomplish.
Continue your hustle day after day and your efforts will pay off.
Remember…. It’s just a matter of 1.
Effort never dies ….
