A very successful friend of mine once told me:
“… remember this- the most significant difference between a person who has something and someone who doesn’t, is that the one who doesn’t, did not want it bad enough…”
As the old saying goes-
“Where there is a will... There is a way”
This is what you need in order to achieve any goal:
You can’t achieve anything that you really, truly don’t want to achieve.
Some people just “wish” to achieve something, but they lack the desire, determination and passion to actually take action.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement.
You can’t achieve anything without having the courage to step out of your comfort zone to pursue your goal.
You will be challenged by the people and the culture that surrounds you.
“What are you doing? You will never achieve this! Be real”
Determination to make things happen is a key ingredient to achieve anything in life.
Be in control!
You must step away from motivation and emotions. Train yourself to do whatever it takes in a controlled and habitual way.
Discipline is doing whatever it takes, even if you don’t want to.
Motivation is an emotion, it comes and goes. Discipline is a decision followed by a series of actions.
You must love what you do. Enthusiasm for your goal is a driver to keep going.
Discipline says, “I need to.”
Duty says, “I have to.”
Devotion says, “I want to.”
Your level of commitment to achieve your goal.
Dedication doesn’t have days off.
This is where willpower, perseverance, persistence and tenacity come into play.
Lack of dedication is an insult for your goal.
Obsession is what lazy people call dedication.
Dedication is execution.
Destiny: We determine our destiny by the actions we take today.
I’m the architect of my own destiny.
The only person you are destined to become, is the person you decide to be.
It’s just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen— Make them happen!
Dedication is just an ingredient in your road to success.
