If you are confident that you have identified the proper processes required for accomplishment of your dreams, but failing to get the results, you might not be working hard enough. The other possibility being that you are doing everything right and only need to exercise patience with the process. You can find out what the case is by talking to your peers and mentors. However, most of the time, the challenge is with your work ethic. You are underestimating how much work is required for good success. Are you working hard enough for the results you want?
Back in 1997, Jeff Bezos (Founder, Amazon) told shareholders that employees at other companies “can work long, hard, or smart, but at Amazon, you can’t choose two out of three.” You want to work hard as smart as you can for as long as you can. If you are really a watchman trying to steer us towards a better future, you do not get to choose one or two, out of three. If working smart helps you to get done in six hours what others can only get done in ten hours, think about all the good you can do if you keep going for another four hours.
Working long, smart and hard is not meant for only stupid people or cursed people. Apostle Paul made it very clear that he enjoyed the grace of God. And that he considered himself to have worked harder than any other Apostle (1 Corinthians 15:10). You must get clear on the exact result you want and the principles and processes that govern them. Then do the work. Extraordinary things happen when blessed and graced people put in the work required for the change we pray to see in our lifetimes. This is not the season for polished diction, but for thoughtful action.
