The goal is near for those who are supremely vigorous and intense in practice.
Samadhi is within his bounds, who is honest and pure at heart, enthusiastic, intense and tremendously energetic. He quickly reaches the highest goal of yoga, assisted also by his residual compiled virtues. However, sometimes even an ardent aspirer may become mild or average, slow or moderate, in his practice.
In the Siva Samhita, chapter v. 16, aspirers are categorised as feeble (mrdu), moderate (madhyama), sharp in understanding and vigorous (adhimatra), and possessing massive energy and supreme enthusiasm (adhimatratama).
