Great success does not happen because you decided to try one day.
It does not happen because you really hoped it would.
It does not happen because you had a burst of enthusiasm and a moment of massive action – then spat the dummy and walked away when the results didn’t show up right away.
Great success comes when you lean in when everyone else is stepping out.
It comes with you keep showing up with the same passion, determination and grit – even when the results haven’t shown up yet.
It’s the sum of small decisions, consistent actions repeated every single day that move you in the direction of your dreams.
Most people need to see evidence of their effort being rewarded before they’ll continue making the effort.
They look to the external and start worrying about what they don’t have instead of staying clear on what they want.
They bring it for a day or two then drop their standards because nobody is looking and nobody else is bringing it so why should they?
The only secret to success is to show up longer than the things trying to defeat you.
Successful people know that the darkest moments are simply the test to ensure they’re really ready to handle the incredible rewards that are just about to follow.
The rest is just the scenery.
