It’s neither clever work nor hard work that determines our success. It’s commitment and consistency that produces the result over time. Observe the successful people in any field; they don’t do anything exceptional except keep practicing till the work becomes their second nature.
When we commit to something with conviction and practice, it becomes our second nature, and there is no distinction between self-identity and work. We can go to any extent to protect our identity; because of this feature, we can take risks that others can’t dare.
It’s important to engage ourselves fully with the work. The more we get involved in becoming part of the work better is our fluency and the fewer the chances to commit a mistake. Further, we’re open to criticism and use it as feedback instead of getting frustrated, and the result is an improvement.
We keep on growing naturally and finally achieve the flow state, where we become an instrument of the infinite that performs the activity. Still, the inspiration and intelligence are of a higher power. We fall in love with the work and enjoy it freely.
For others, we become the center of focus, but we know that we did nothing except commit to consistently keeping going with the flow.
