How To Use The Law Of Natural Selection To Attain Success

By Mohammad Shafi'e

Here’s another simple, unjustly discarded but effective tip for success – keep doing something new every day! Notice that I said, “keep doing something new every day,” instead of just “keep doing something every day.” It doesn’t matter at first if you think you’re doing things which do not seem to move you forward in achieving your goals. If you keep doing something new which you’d never done before or had not done yesterday, you are sure to stumble upon a breakthrough that is going to propel you towards your success faster than you had ever anticipated.

When you do this, that is, when you keep doing something new every day in your attempts to hit your target, you are copying nature, you are actually putting the law of genetic natural selection to practical use in your life. Now I won’t go into the details of natural selection, let the geneticists and the expert biologists handle that, but the basic concept you can learn from the law of natural selection is that even the tiniest changes in the genetic make-up of a species from generation to generation will eventually yield the grandest and most profound results.

There’s an old saying that goes, “If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got”.

This is true, unless, you keep on doing something new every day in your endeavor to achieve your goals. It can be something slightly new or something radically different from what you had been initially doing.

Become a scientist. Every day, take note of what you did and the results you have actually attained. Collect all the tips and advice you have acquired to attain success in your chosen field and list them all down in the simplest of terms on a piece of paper as some form of a checklist.

Let’s label these tips and advice collectively as tactics. Pick one tactic or find a way to bunch a few tactics together to form one super-tactic and commit yourself to test out that tactic every day. Observe your success with that tactic or super-tactic and log it in.

Over a course of time, review your success log and see which of the tactics seemed to have yielded the best results for you. Marry the most successful tactics together and see how you can create your very own step-by-step action plan.

Take a fresh piece of paper and forge your solid action plan for success and commit yourself to it. Define precisely what you need to do each and every day, the routine tasks that must be done to ensure progress towards achieving your goals. Break up your goal or goals into bite-sized easily attainable targets that you must meet every day.

Now as you commit yourself to this new action plan for success of yours, do not entirely abandon the principle of observing and logging your daily successes and failures (feedback) and continue to do so, modifying and adapting and evolving your action plan as you go along.

In time, you will forge out a clear path to success for yourself. This path belongs entirely to you and you alone. It is a unique algorithm that only you could have created and only you can make a success out of.
