A common obstacle to success is the desire to cut corners and take the short road to success.  But shortcuts never pay off in the long run.  As Napolean said, victory belongs to the most perserving.

Most people tend to underestimate the time it takes to achieve something of value, but to be successful, you have to be willing to pay your dues.  James Watt spent twenty years laboring to perfect his steam engine.  William Harvey labored night and day for eight years to prove how blood circulated in the human body.  And it took another twenty-five years for the medical profession to acknowledge he was right.

Cutting corners is a sign of impatience and poor self-discipline.  But if you are willing to follow through, you can achieve a breakthrough.  That’s why Albert Gray says, “The common denominator of success lies in forming the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do.”

If you continually give in to your moods or impulses, then you need to change your approach to doing things.  The best method is to set standards for yourself that require accountability.  Suffering a consequence for not following through helps you stay on track.  Once you have your new standards in place, work according to them, not your moods.  That will get you going in the right direction.

Self-discipline is a quality that is won through practice.  Psychologist Joseph Mancusi noted, “Truly successful people have learned to do what does not come naturally.  Real success lies in experiencing fear or aversion and acting in spite of it.”
