success is what happens when you strive to be better every single day
Success is a process
If there’s something that I could set your direction on, if there’s something that I could remind you of every single day, it would be that success is how you practice. Success is how you play successes, how you give your all in any single moment. And there is no finish line. And I remember I fell in the finish line trap for so many years, and then I would hit these imaginary finish lines that got put into place. And that would have this real depression and real anxiety because my imaginary finish line didn’t feel like I thought it should feel. So then I would set another imaginary finish line. And then I would start again and start again.
There was this cyclical process where I never felt enough that I always had to work more. I couldn’t take a day off because there was no measure. I was lacking clarity as our good dear friend, Jeff Spencer talks about who will be on the podcast soon. When we spin our wheels as champions it’s normally because we’re lacking clarity. And so I think one of the most important things to understand in this conversation about success is that all we need to know is where we want to go. We can’t. Live on hopes and dreams and prayers and put intention on good faith and get there because there’s no direction to it. There’s no measure. There’s no way to know if we’re even heading in the right direction. And so success being a process still requires us to have clarity of where we want to go. So we want to do is we want to have clarity on where you want to go.
Having clarity on what it’s going to take for us to give input to allow us to create that win down the road whatever that clear goal is that we have. Success is what happens when you strive to be better every single day that’s really what it looks down to. There are three traits that I’ve researched. That really helps keep that in focus. And they’re really simple. Its humility, effort, and opportunity. I learn every day that I have so much room for improvement and I’m actually falling in love with that. Then I know that every day there’s always room for me to give more, to grow more, to push harder. Never forget that luck happens when preparation meets opportunity.
