“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” – Colin Powell
Everybody wants, everything. Everybody wants everything NOW! The problem is people are not ready to work for it. In the age of reality TV shows and instant stars, why would you wait? It’s hard to believe that hard work pays off, but it does. While there will always be examples of people reaching perceived success without much work its rare, and dare I say luck?
The reason I say dare I say luck is simple. As a personal motto I DO NOT BELIEVE IN LUCK, I think it’s a made up notion to explain what may be unexplainable. But in all actuality people create circumstance rather consciously or subconsciously that lead to what is perceived as luck. Therefore luck to me is fake…but we all need something to believe in so if for you its luck so be it, but I prefer to believe in myself.
The point of today’s blog is to better understand the importance of hard work. What you want in life is not going to fall into your lap, it’s not going to knock on your door and present itself. So you have to work for it, fail on the road to it, get back up, fail again, and if you are “lucky” or as I view it have executed your plan well enough, and have the talent to reach the goal only then will you achieve it.
So what are you waiting for? Write down your goals, write down your plans, and get to work, HARD WORK…it may take a day, may take two weeks, and may take 5 years. But if you want it you can achieve it, and if you can’t achieve it it’s not the end of the world…its only the beginning of a new opportunity perhaps…no fall or failure is final…make the best of the ups and downs on the road to your goals. If you don’t who will?
Be GREAT at what you do today!
