I just finished a light run in my neighborhood.
And as the endorphins and the creative juices started flowing
I had one of those moments. It hit me like a light bulb idea.
But it is a real simple thought, concept, and/or principle.
I'm not psychic. But I realized that the answer to all of our
problems is hard work. Now this is basic but sometimes the
obvious slips away from us as we go through our daily grind
HARD WORK: It is that simple. If you are having relationship problems
whether it is with a significant other, a friend, or family member then
you just have to WORK it out.
If you are facing a professional obstacle you have to KEEP WORKING!
If you feel that you are out of shape then WORK OUT!
If you have a plan that is sitting in your mind asking you to do something...
then simply WORK IT! WORK THAT PLAN!
If you have been defeated then you gotta WORK on a comeback!
If you have gained a victory then get back to WORK so you can do it again!
I am a big fan of Will Smith. When asked about his success and mindset...
he stated this:
"I will NOT be outworked. Period... You might have more talent than me, you might
be smarter than me, you might be ***ier than me, you might be all of those things.
You got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there's
two things: Either you're getting off first, or I'm gonna die. It's really that simple."
I just finished reading "Think Big" for the second time. It is a FANTASTIC
book in my opinion. Donald Trump talks a lot about HARD WORK and how that
it is the only real shortcut to success.
Donald Trump went through a rough period in which he owed
millions and millions of dollars to numerous banks. During this time frame,
he was invited to a banker's convention. His receptionist or secretary
gave him a reminder about the time and place. Mr. Trump did not
want to go. Banker's were after him. He was a prime target. BUT
he knew he had to go. He got himself together, postured up,
gathered poise and attended the event. Although the evening was not
all ice cream and cupcakes...Mr. Trump found a way to turn that awkward
and humiliating situation into a positive and profitable decision.
Hard work is vital. Agonizing focus with hard work will take you very
very far. BUT you have to accommodate that hard work with PASSION and LOVE.
Your hard work will seem easy because you love what you are doing. Do what you love
and work hard at it. I heard a pastor say, "Work at your play and play at your work!"
I'll leave you this my fellow passion lover...Get Back To Work!
