Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 1.21


The goal is near for those who are supremely vigorous and intense in practice.

Success in yoga comes quickly to those who are intensely energetic

Those who pursue their practices with intensity of feeling, vigor, and firm conviction achieve concentration and the fruits thereof more quickly, compared to those of medium or lesser intensity.

This sutra does what it says on the tin – if you have strong conviction and time for practice, you will go far and more quickly than someone who has less conviction and less time for practice.
