Have you ever wanted something so badly that you could almost taste it? Maybe it’s a new bike, a big house, or even becoming a famous singer. Whatever it is, it can be easy to get caught up in the excitement and want it right now. May be you can’t afford it right away but the thought of not being able to achieve that will hurt you.
That’s the thing that we are never taught to cope with.
But, what if I told you that there’s a better way to achieve your biggest dreams? It’s called playing the long game.
Playing the long game means setting long-term goals and working towards them over time. It’s like planting a seed in the ground and waiting for it to grow into a beautiful flower. Just like how a seed takes time to grow, your dreams also take time to come true.
Let’s say you want to become a famous singer. It’s easy to get discouraged when you’re not famous yet, but if you play the long game, you’ll keep singing, writing songs, and performing. You’ll keep working hard and learning new things, even when it’s tough because you know that becoming a famous singer will take time and hard work.
The worst part even if you don’t become a famous Bollywood singer, you can have a youtube channel with millions of followers (and earn a good cheque!)
Another example is saving money for a big purchase. It’s easy to spend all your money on things you want right now, but if you play the long game, you’ll save your money over time and eventually, you’ll have enough to buy what you want.
I have developed a mindset for myself – if I can buy anything twice right away by paying the full amount (no EMI or credit card payment), then I buy that thing. Otherwise, I wait and earn that, then buy.
I was inspired with this concept from my friend Deepakness. He has created multiple content sites 4-5 years back, writing 2-3 articles passively per month for each without monetizing or rushing for anything else except creating meaningful content. And after few years all the sites are getting 1000’s of visitors organically (few of the sites he have not touched or created content for months, but they are generating tons of traffic aswell as $$$)
You can apply playing the long game to any goal you set for yourself. It’s like a secret weapon that helps you achieve your biggest dreams. But remember, achieving your goals is not easy and it will take time and hard work. But by playing the long game, you can do it!
Playing the long game is the secret weapon for achieving your biggest dreams. It’s like a secret weapon that helps you overcome obstacles and never give up on your dreams. So the next time you set a goal for yourself, remember to play the long game and you’ll be able to achieve anything you set your mind to.
