Progress Article Michalis Poullis


Progress… Progress is something that we are all striving towards. We have the need to progress, to get better, to feel like evolving. Growth is one of our six basic human needs.

Over the years I have found myself in one of the two situations. I was either stuck somewhere working my @ss off to get where I want to or at a place where I have already started achieving a lot of things but I have not even realised that I have come a long way.

As I am writing this I am not sure what is the secret behind it. Is it to be focused on what you want to achieve and start working towards it, or simply make your action plan, start working on it, without distracting yourself with details and then everything will fall into place?

In both cases, the secret is hard work… In one of my favourite motivational speeches, the speaker talks about hard work and it’s asking it why does it sound so scary and people are afraid of it. On the other hand, when people get to know it, they know that they can trust it.

Hard work is what gets you from point A to point B. Positive thinking is what drives you to keep on going, even when things are hard.
