Daily progress is more important than a week of flurried activity when it comes to developing personal skills. True growth is the slow and plodding progress toward success. Successful people are those who dedicate themselves to a cause and painstakingly move toward a higher goal.

Many people look for easy, quick success and give up before achieving lasting results. Those who are in the continual pursuit of the quick and easy road to success will find themselves repeatedly disappointed. Studies have shown that high expectations for academic achievements, career goals or athletic purposes can help people achieve more without causing burnout.
