Attaining your greatest dreams can be a lengthy process, and your most meaningful goals will likely require months, or even years, of consistent effort, persistence, and good habits to achieve. Too often, people are discouraged by the long-term commitment their dreams require and give up when they are not within immediate reach.

The Self-Made Billionaire Effect refers to the discipline necessary to remain committed to your most ambitious goals over time as Patient Urgency. This is patience for the time it takes to see meaningful achievement and success, while simultaneously having urgency and dedication to working toward your goals each and every day. It’s important to accept that your dreams won’t happen right away, and you will face ups, downs, and plateaus in the process. But by having Patient Urgency and staying devoted to taking purposeful, incremental steps toward your goals every day, you’ll build long-term success.

Putting your goals down on paper can help you to intentionally think about these next steps and break them down into smaller, more digestible achievements and habits. By understanding exactly the effort that your goals require on a daily basis, you can cultivate Patient Urgency and hold yourself accountable to making progress.
