“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle.
Look inside and really think about what turns on your waterworks or what makes you hot under the collar. Once you had found it stick to it, believe in yourself and don’t listen to what others have to say about your dreams and wanting to succeed. Most of our biggest obstacles in our lives often involve not having the courage to go after what you want and also the “haters” as some call them, to me I call them “Motivators” when they say I can’t do something it makes me work harder so I can prove them wrong, and I sure have done over again. Walt Disney said, “When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.” So learn to believe in yourself and in your ability to accomplish whatever you set your mind to. Believe this with every fibre in your body.
Once you master a positive belief system, you can focus on staying connected to your vision – your purpose for founding your business/dream in the first place. What I mean by this is the drive and the passion that inspired you to take the huge step of striking out on your own. Make a legacy for yourself; a Champion knows that long after his days are done, his legacy will live on. Resolved to that fact, the Champion decides early, and recalculates often, the path he chooses to take and the contributions he wants to make in the lives of others. By seeking a path dedicated to applying his education, the Champion will find opportunities to put forth ripples of change that may cause some major waves. Be thankful for the positive people in your life and be out with the ones that aren’t. Always be open to learning I’ve been in this game for quite some time yet I’m still learning, even Michael Jordan had a coach, one of the keys to success is finding peers to push you and mentors to show you guidance. Despite all your talents you cannot do it alone, still lend an ear to the suggestions of others, however, must choose these “others” wisely, taking great strides to ensure they have your best interest at heart. I urge you to hold onto your goals and dreams, have faith in your abilities, and start running through those doors that represent each area of your life.
Fling back the door, feel the adrenalin pumping through your veins, and excel in the fact that you took action to make your goals and dreams a reality, hustle hard All Day Every Day.
