To get things in the right perspectives, it will be best to start with the fundamentals.
How do you speak, write and convey information in English without first the ability to reside from A – Z.
As is with the alphabets, and English, so it is in every other area of life, business, and successful living.
Let me share with you a few lines I learnt from my Mentor Mr Jim Rohn on this subject of fundamental from his book 7 Strategies to Wealth and Happiness.
He defined fundamentals as those basic principles on which all accomplishment is built.
Fundamentals form the beginning, the basis and the reality from which everything else flows.
Fundamental principles belong to the ages. They have been the same from
Biblical times and will continue to remain so until the end of time.
Fundamentals in Application:
Let’s use the word “fundamentals” and apply it to the concept of success. If you are looking for fundamental success, the kind of success that lasts, that is built on a solid foundation, then you should avoid exotic answers. And believe me, there are lots of exotic answers being offered these days, especially around where you live. So in spite of rumours to the contrary, success is a simple process. It doesn’t fall out of the sky. It is neither magical nor mysterious.
SUCCESS IS NO MORE THAN THE NATURAL CONSEQUENCE OF CONSISTENTLY APPLYING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF SUCCESS TO LIFE.
The same is true of happiness and wealth. They, too, are no more than the natural consequence of consistently applying the fundamentals of happiness and wealth to life.
The key is to stick to the fundamentals.
According to Jim: “there are always a half-dozen things that make eighty percent of the difference.” A half-dozen things . . . what a key thought.
Whether we are working to improve our health, wealth, personal achievement, or professional enterprise, the difference between triumphant successes or bitter failure lies in the degree of our commitment to seek out, study, and apply those half-dozen things (fundamentals).
For example, for a farmer to reap a plentiful harvest in the fall, the half-dozen basics he must concentrate on are fairly obvious: soil, seed, water, sunshine, nourishment, and care.
Each component is of equal importance because only together do they bring to fruition a successful harvest.
Thus, a good question to ask before undertaking any new project or setting new objectives is this: WHAT ARE THE HALF-DOZEN THINGS THAT WILL MAKE THE MOST
DIFFERENCE TO THE OUTCOME? Whether the enterprise is in the fine arts or in music, mathematics or physics, sports or business, it’s those half-dozen fundamentals that count.
The understanding and application of this simple principle is the first intelligent step toward accomplishing your dreams and objectives.
