The Only Way to Fast Forward your Progress


Some may say success is having Million Dollars in the bank account, while others may say 20 Billion;

some may say success is a peaceful and anonymous life, while others may say it is one filled with fame and power;

some may say success is good health late into 70s and 80s, while others may say it is YOLO-maxing it in your teens and 20s and not giving a damn about health or longevity;

Some may say it is about having a cabin in the jungle and living a natural life, while others may say it is living life in the city, owning a fast car and a big house;

Some may say it is having a loving wife/husband, while others may say it is about being a bachelor and experiencing variety,

This goes to show that there is no single metric to measure success.

While there may be various different versions of success, the way to achieve it is only one.

What is it you may ask.

Well, the only way to achieve success in whatever it is you want to achieve is having one pointed focus towards that particular goal for a prolonged period of time.

Yes, you heard that right.

The only way to get successful at what you want to is to have it as a focal point for a point of time until it becomes a reality.


Most of us delay our own success because we are focused on multiple things at a time- we want to watch that new movie that just came out, we want to play that video game, we want to hang out with our friends, we want to spend time with our family, we want to try out that new restaurant, we want to travel to that place, we want to do it all.

And then we wonder why we aren't successful yet.

Truly successful people aren't focused on doing any of these activities that an average human being is focused on.

They are hyperfocused on achieving their objectives (think Elon Musk)

They spend all their waking hours on doing only the things that moves them one step (or several steps) closer their goals.

They know the true meaning of sacrifice because they have been practicing it every single day in their lives.

Most people are focused on so many distractions that they don't even realize their attention is being spent in all the directions and getting dissipated.

Your attention and time are your real currency. How you spend it will determine whether you are successful in what you aspire to achieve in your life.

So if there's some take away you can take from this post, it should be this-

  1. Eliminate all distractions from your life

  2. Focus on one thing at a time until it is achieved

  3. Work towards it every waking hour of your life

This way you will fast forward your success and achieve what you want in half the time.

Remember: Just like how focused sunlight through a magnifying glass can burn the paper, in the same way one pointed focus can help you tear through all the obstacles and help you get closer to your goals in the fast lane.


I'd say everyone has their own definition of success in the long run it just depends on how were brought up and our goals in life
