To be successful, you don’t necessarily have to be the most intelligent or talented person in the room.
It’s your habits that will take you in the direction of either learning more or becoming stagnant, better skilled or lacking in skills, and more prepared or unprepared. Get my drift?
Today, I want to talk to you about what separates the men from the boys or the women from the girls.
It has to do with how you are spending your time day to day. No one becomes successful through sheer luck. Rich, maybe, from winning the lottery, but lasting success MUST come from the little habits that you create day to day and perform regularly.
Perseverance is a great word to describe this. Behind every great talent, is a massive commitment to enhancing their experience.
As Michael Jordan said:
“Everyone has talent, but ability takes hard work.”
Remember, Michael Jordan could have been just great if he had given up when he didn’t make his high school basketball team. But, because he worked relentlessly at improving his skill, he became a legend…not overnight, but little by little, and day by day.
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Where have you seen your greatest successes in the past?
- How can you improve in these areas?
- What are some of your weaknesses?
- How can you work harder to master those skills that need improving?
