It’s not one that most people make either.
Most people settle for what happens. They do just enough to get by. They stay just long enough to get a promotion for time served vs. value added. They’re content with the easy road.
Most people wonder why only a small group of people succeed.
They believe it’s all about talent or luck – the two things outside of our control. This helps them sleep at night because if it’s about what you’re born with, or the lucky break you fell into, then they don’t have to feel bad about their choice to settle.
Because “the cards were just stacked against them.”
That’s not accurate. You know it. I know it.
Success is a matter of consistently doing work to get better. It’s about showing up every day, regardless of how you feel, for as long as it takes.
Success is a choice that we make every single day.
We choose whether we’re going to make time to work on building our skills.
We choose if we are going to let our feelings in the moment or our long-term commitments determine our level of effort.
We choose if we’re going to show up and compete every single day.
Choosing success means you’re choosing to get better, every single day.
It can be 10 steps one day or just barely one on another – but no matter what, you choose to get better each day.
