Achieve Your Goal – One Step at a Time | Pujya Gurudevshri Rakeshbhai


Do you all want to
achieve your goal? Whether material or spiritual,
be it any goal. Do you want to achieve it?
(Yes) You need to steer your life
towards your goal. No magic is going to happen;
no miracle is going to happen. It will not happen with someone’s loving,
divine, or compassionate gaze, Nothing is going to happen and
nothing is going to be automatic also. You need to steer your life
towards your goal. So, when you have to steer your life
towards your goal, What do you need to do? To bring about a macro transformation,
you need to start with micro transformation. Everyone wants macro transformation; They want self-realisation,
they want a radical change; They want a transformation,
but refuse to start with baby steps; You want to start with giant steps! That’s possible, but it will
last only for 3 days, not the 4th… Because you are taking a giant step,
and that is not right. When dieting, do you immediately start
starving yourself? Do you resort to month-long fasting? You have to reduce little by little, And gradually, now your stomach
is not asking for more. But, had you started that
on the first day itself, You would have dieted
wonderfully for a day, And the next day you would have craved,
‘I only want to have cheesy things today!’ Spring effect. Your mind will start
throwing tantrums. A retreating syndrome will start. If you start meditating for
2 hours at a stretch, On the 4th day you will complain,
‘I am tired of meditating!’ Therefore, you have to start
with baby steps. If someone has the habit
of chewing tobacco, How much tobacco do you consume in a day?
This much. Now fill a box with that much
and tell your mind, ‘You will not get more than
this box today.’ You know what happened? He already started that, now he rations,
“I want to save.” “I cannot consume more than
what is in the box,” He was given a box this small, He could not consume
more tobacco than that. He said, “I used to postpone,” Every time I craved for it, I would ask,
“Do you really want it?” “Otherwise, prolong it,” “Because what will you do once
this gets over?” He said, “One half of the box
remains unused now!” Now this is a beautiful way
to progress. No tantrums, no retreating
syndromes – nothing. It is difficult to give up
any habit suddenly, May it be anger, or yelling –
those are also bad habits. Yelling also – only tobacco
is not a bad habit. So, pay in instalments,
but fix your instalments. Pay in instalments – I will get up
just 15 minutes earlier, I will start with just
20 minutes of meditation, I will commit to just
this much daily prayer, I do not wish to take up
2 hours of daily prayers, I want to take up just
15 minutes; Once its quality improves,
I will go to the next. Pay in instalments;
but decide your instalments. You do not decide
your instalments. That is why suddenly it is
6-7 hours of scriptural study, And suddenly 7 days without
any scriptural study. That is not acceptable. So, it can be a part of you,
if you decide today. Understand one thing:
Success is seen in one day; It is not achieved in one day. Thus, you have to be patient. Go slow – baby steps!
