Talent without hard work is useless.Talent without hard work can’t get you to your goals.Hard work without talent will get you to your goals.
Many people think you need to be talented before you can do certain things.
Adopting a growth mindset approach gets you closer to your goal than having a fixed mindset.
You don’t need to be talented before you try something. You just need to put in the work.
Sometimes, we use the word talent to cover up our fault when we can’t put in the work or time for a particular project we want to do.
Hard work is always the baseline of great achievements.The truth is that we all have our own advantage over the next person in whatever it is we want to do.
Many people get scared when they hear the word hard work. Hard work is only a word for consistency and nothing more.We only need to find our own advantage over others, and combine it with hard work to excel.
Getting organized is hard work. Setting goals, making plans to achieve them, and staying on track is hard work.
If you are willing to show up every day, you will make incremental progress.You want to do something or learn a new skill, you need to show up every day.
One of the mistakes we make in modern times is that we always want to do our work when inspired. You don’t do something when you are feeling inspired. You do it whether you are inspired or not. You need to show up.You have won half of the battle if you will commit in showing up every day.
Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.Showing up consistently is where the magic happens.
When you focus on consistency, you trust the process rather than the outcome. When you focus on consistency, you won’t dwell on statistics. Because if you dwell on statistics, you get short-sighted. But if you aim for consistency, the numbers will be there at the end.
However,always remain a student to keep learning and improving.It is one thing to show up and one another to be consistent, but if we aren’t learning new things am sorry we won’t go far.
When we practice, we learn. When we learn, we progress. And Progressive means success is a process and not a destination.
Value progress, no matter how small. By showing up and working consistently, we will make progress, every day.
Hard work is challenging, painful and uncomfortable. But it’s the only way to the top. In fact, a major key to success is to learn to enjoy challenging work and to enjoy working hard at it.
The punch line: Let us focus on the process of becoming great at what we do and everything else will fall into place.
