The wolf on the hill is never as hungry, as the wolf who is climbing the hill. The underdog is usually taken for granted and dismissed. Internally he must become a mean dog that becomes driven by determination. Over time he develops a loud bark, (finds his voice) and yes he bites (does the work that others thought would never be done).
It’s not easy to walk along, but it’s the walk that will make you strong. Just be prepared to leave some folks behind. It’s takes a strong person to walk along in the right direction, than to follow the crowd, that’s all wrong. The hardest walks lead to the best destinations. The toughest climbs always lead to the best views. The struggle and the tears in the middle of the night will allow you to finish the fight. It won’t be easy but it will be all right.
You control your own destiny but you must do what is required. When you show people what you are made of, the right people will show up. Always be hungry to feed your mind. Look forward for the next feast of success. Just realize that success is not convenient, you must do what’s required. You can’t do everything so you must decide what is the most important.
You must decide how to spend your money and your time. Modern technology is really neat, but you can’t always answer every whistle and beep. Don’t be like everyone else, don’t become an extension of your phone. Discipline is the key. You must show up and do the work and avoid the distractions. That happens when you decide what you really want to do. Do you want to spend the money on some new shoes, or a new hand bag or do you want to spend the money on a new training program? To get good at something, takes a lot of work and sacrifice.
Your drive and passion will pull you through. If you want to live like the 1%, people live their life on their terms you must be willing to sacrifice. You must focus and do what you must. Win the mornings and you have a better chance of winning your day. If you start your day off with the morning news, most will be bad or sad. And if it’s not happening in your immediate area, they go to the next area or town. Bad news sells and garbage smells.
To stand out you must stand up and go in another direction: “Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason, mastery demands all of a person.” – Albert Einstein.
You must acquire the skills you need, to advance in whatever is your cause. Work within the gifts you have been given and the task becomes easier. Fall in love with what you do and you will want to do it more often. And the more you do it the better you become. The world will bend to your will, if you persist and never quit.
What does it take to reach a breakthrough? It depends on what you want to do. Everyone is in a rush and and nobody has any time to feed their mind. To become legendary you must be exceptional. Your action must exceed your words. Make today count because what you do today determines what happens tomorrow. Discipline will help you get to where you want to go.
