Staying Persistent Removes Friction

A professional Olympic swimmer does not fear the water. But that does not mean he was born like that.

Through persistent, he had achieved the mastery in his craft, and when he performs, the whole world watches him.

He has successfully removed the Friction from his craft. He does not hesitate to go to water and swim.

Is he naturally born talented? No. A big NO! He too has felt that drag of waking up early morning, going to swim every single day.

He swims a minimum 80,000 meters in just a week, which is nearly 50 miles or 81 kilometres.

I am talking about Michael Phelps, the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 28 medals.

And to be more effective, persistent with experimentation is a great combination.

Start what you always wanted to. It can be reading, writing, singing, making music etcetera.

After you have started, feel the drag of stop doing and go to the old mediocre lifestyle.

This drag can continue until one month.

If your drag is too much. Remember: To have results that others are not getting you to have to be willing to do what is not popular, trendy, and what others are doing.

Thank you for reading. It means a lot to me.
