Full Article: Catamaran Racing, News & Design – 2016 ‘Great Texas 300’ for Galway & Atwood,
Now days it’s a world of speed. The movies like fast and furious, going to the moon, acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph in 5 seconds, searching online to find an answer in a split second, all these makes us think that we have to achieve results faster than ever.
As a result, we overestimate what we can achieve in one month, or one year. And when we do not achieve it, we blame 97% to our surroundings and convince ourselves that this was not for me. We get shifted to our old routine again.
Have you ever done so? Only if you knew how close you were towards your goal when you gave up!
While trying to overestimate in one year, we hugely underestimate what we could have achieved in five years. Money accumulation does not grow in a straight line.
Slow and Steady Wins The Race.
The truth is, money accumulates exponentially. You have to use the effects of compounding to get the cards stacked at your favour. If only you could replace the make money fast = 5 years rather than 5 days or 5 weeks, you have won the battle by 80%.
Have you seen people winning big amounts of cash money in lotteries? See their face with all their teeth exposed in the newspaper? Did you see the other side of the coin? Most of them died broke, 95% of the people who win big money in lottery loose this money within the first three months. If I start naming some examples, the whole page will have to be dedicated on that subject.
Become slow and steady. Go back and read the Aesop’s fable – the story of the hare and the tortoise. It is the tortoise who wins the race. And you will have to keep your cool. The moment you stop thinking using your own brain, you loose. You will have to have the vision: When Helen Keller was asked is there anything worse than being blind? Her reply was a quick one. Yes, there is. It is worse to live without vision than to live a life blind.
