It takes interest, practice and tenacity to get good at something
I’ve just been sitting here looking at and listening to The Voice, and I’m amazed at how good they are, just think of all the hours and hours of practice behind their talent.
It made me think about the parallels to life in general. To become good at something you have to have interest and determination. Some are natural gifted and some have to work hard at it, but we all have to some extent put in the work.
You know, anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination. Just like being a great singer requires a real gift, even the most gifted singer won’t make it without the tenacity required to make the long, hard journey until they reach their goal.
I believe this practice is something we all could benefit from implementing. Just like with everything else in life, if we want to get good at it, we need to put in the work. Sometimes, hours and hours of work and effort.
So how do we get there, to the point where what we wish to achieve it’s a natural extension of who we are? Well, we start doing something. We start chipping away at the “clutter”. We make an effort to be more conscious about what we bring into our life, of both physical and mental “stuff”. And we practice, and practice, over and over again until we are there.
This is at least what I will be doing, during the journey that I’m now embarking on. Hoping that with practice I will eventually get to that state, where making the right decisions on what to bring into my life becomes an integral part of me.
It doesn’t matter what you want to archive in life. Becoming a minimalist, a writer, singer, an architect or whatever that makes your heart sing, just please start somewhere, put some effort into it and I’m sure you eventually will get there.What about starting together with me…. 🙂
