How to stay consistent for long-term goals by taking small steps

I learnt invaluable lesson staying at home during lockdown; consistency with long-term vision by taking small steps daily. Things I do daily are- reading an ebook on forex trading for 30 minutes, learning German on Duolingo app for 30 minutes, studying Fundamentals of Digital Marketing by Google for 1 hour, and reading new content to increase knowledge for blogging for 30 minutes. This was for improving my mental health.

For fitness, I walk daily for 1 hour and do a plank for 60 seconds. Yes, just for a minutes.

Can I speak German now? No. Am I became a good trader? No. In fact, trading certain currency pairs in India is illegal. Yet I read it. Maybe i’ll get an opportunity after few years to settle abroad, probably in Germany! Then I can trade currencies.

Similarly, doing plank for a minute is not going to make my core muscles strong in couple of days. However, after a month my core muscles will show the result.

But walking for 1 hour is a big step, isn’t it? But here’s the catch. I walk while talking on phone, I walk while reading the ebooks and studying digital marketing, and likewise while listeing songs. Everything is connected.

All small steps and actions will show compounded effect within 10 years. I dread instant results. Future is uncertain. We don’t know when we are going to die. Assuming I will be alive for next 10 years, I certainly know that i’ll be a wealthy, healthy, and independent persons, just because if the small steps or decisions I make daily to the long-term goal in my mind.

Remember that controlling your thoughts and feelings is a skill. Skills can be acquired. Dr. Kelly Shockley is a chiropractor with 14 years of experience. If you find difficult to change your mindset, then Dr. Kelly can guide you. I am fortunate to have helpful parents, who supported me during my bad days. I’m grateful to them. You can achieve anything if you have a long-term goal.

Hi there! I am a health-tech blogger, an average book reader, food and nutrition enthusiast, and sales professional. Copywriting is the think that drives me. I can make the print on 'Buy' button fade away. No matter whether you are seller, buyer, performer, affiliate marketer, Amazon seller or an astronaut, you need to advertise with persuasion to make money. Power in words and their structuring can do wonders to make your inventory empty. 'Show me your library, and I will tell you what kind of person you are' is damn true. Books give you direction to your final goal. I read atleast 3-4 books per year. I'm here only because of the books. What is the purpose of daily life without proper food and nutrition? Health is wealth. Steve Jobs said that 'What is the use to be the richest person in coffin?'. Nobody wants to spend earned money in hospital bills. I make valuable content to food habits. I'm a rockstar on Quora! I love the art of advertising. I am creating a personal brand, you can check my IG. I have 2 years of sales experience. I sold fruit syrups to retailers, fruit juice at kiosk, mobile applications and softwares to hospitals, medicines to doctors and pharmacies and, Point of Sales machine to merchants. Sales taught me customer mindset, objection handling and most important, facing rejection. I had seen bad days and good days. Those days were worth my struggle. I will share my genuine opinions on health-tech industry.
