MOTIVATION: Greatness Comes with Practice
If you want to achieve greatness, you have to be willing to put in the time. There are no shortcuts or magic bullet to #success. I know that sounds like a bummer at first, but it’s not. In fact, this truth of life should inspire hope. If you put in the time, you will get results. Period. End of story.
The path to greatness starts with a strong and genuine desire to #achieve something, to make a difference, to contribute to something bigger than yourself.
Yes, you need to believe in yourself. But then, you need to follow up with the time and effort investment needed to make things happen for you and to live your best life. This means if you experience a hiccup, a slow-down, or even a step backwards from time to time, that you don’t give up. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, but use mistakes as an opportunity to learn and refine your approach. If you start to see mistakes as an opportunity, you won’t allow yourself to be ruled by the fear of #failure. Instead, you’ll use any stumbling blocks as opportunities to get even closer to your goal. Whatever your #goal is, whether it is in relationships, career, friendships, health, diet, exercise, or kicking a bad habit - believe that you CAN achieve greatness. All you need is a little humility - know that you don’t know everything and there is still a lot to learn, no matter who you are or where you are in life. With that in mind, keep working hard (because even smart, talented people have to work to get to #greatness), and don’t ever give up. Keep at it and you’ll be rewarded with amazing results. What’s one goal you have that you will promise to keep working at today?
