This is a saying that one of my mentors says repeatedly when he does trainings. Sometimes, it takes a while for things to click for me, and when it does, look out. There is truth when one says, “Success leaves clues.” Learn from and mimick what successful people do and you will yield the same results. When you are willing to be molded, you are open, you are coachable and you are willing to do the work, it’s amazing how the universe aligns so you can get what you seek.
It doesn’t matter what you want in life, be it a successful business, a rock-hard body whatever it may be. At the end of the day, it comes down to you doing the WORK. There is no avoiding this important piece. You can’t expect one without doing the other. You are NOT exempt. You are not special in the sense that you get to bypass all of the little steps, dirty work and trench-digging that others have gone through. You’ve got to follow the rules just like everyone else.
When you find someone who is on the same page as you, it makes all the difference. That individual gets it; are willing to do the work; understands that it’s not about the instant gratification. When you find someone who recognizes they are part of a marathon, not a 100-meter dash; they are in it for the LONG HAUL, it makes all the other disappointments worth it. As long as you keep your goals and why in the forefront, and realize that as long as you keep going, you will win.
Do the work, keep focused, don’t quit and embrace the work. Work truly does work.
