“You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it’s enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never quit.” ― Richelle E. Goodrich
“The world’s greatest achievers have been those who have always stayed focused on their goals and have been consistent in their efforts.” ― Roopleen
The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concept for people that are trying to excel, who have dreams that wanna do things. Talent, you have naturally. Skill, is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft. I’ve never really viewed myself as particularly talented, where I excel is ridiculous sickening work ethic. You know while the other guys are sleeping, I am working. While the other guys are eating, I am working. There is no easy way around it.
No matter how talented you are, your talent is gonna fail if you’re not skilled. You know – if you don’t study, if you don’t work really hard and dedicate yourself to be better every single day, you’ll not be able to communicate with the people or the way that you want. The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I am not afraid to die on a treadmill. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, but if we get on the treadmill together, these are two things – Either you are getting off first or I am gonna die.
There are those of you right now – your life is not where you want it to be. You’re messed up. Or you’re doing good, but you can’t find a way to get to great. But remember, JUST BECAUSE YOU FAIL, DOESN’T MAKE YOU A FAILURE! One of the things you have to understand is that you are supposed to fail. You are supposed to fucking fail. Because failure is the stepping stone to success. It’s not just a clique.
“Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is given out. The day you procrastinate, you lose that day’s success.” ― Israelmore Ayivor
I don’t care how good you are. I don’t care how talented you are. I don’t care how much you work on yourself. There are sometimes when things aren’t gonna go right. They just are not going to go right. There are times when anything that can happen, will happen. You gotta believe in yourself. You gotta believe in your abilities. You gotta believe in your service, your company, your ideas, unquestionably! You gotta have faith and that faith gives you patience. That’s not gonna happen as quickly as you want it to happen. It’s your dream, if you want it to happen, get your butt up and make it happen! If you want to have it – RISE and GRIND.
If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards. I dare you not to go back to sleep, I dare you to get up and I dare you to chase your dream. It’s possible you can live! Whatever comes to you, don’t run from it. Don’t try and duck it like most people do. Winners are not the people who never fail, but the people who never quit. Never quit. Run towards it. If you wanna make your dream come true, you have to stay focused. Some people love to get even and then get ahead. You gotta stay focused on where you want to go.
Think. Where are you going with your life?
