Good Morning Successepreneurs,
Sorry for not getting K&E’s out yesterday – NO EXCUSES!!
Thinking about how AWESOME you guys/gals are yesterday led me to think about success. But not just a definition of success, instead, what is it about you guys/gals that make this level of success possible. What OUTSTANDING characteristics and features is it about ya’ll that make you so totally great at what we’re doing? Here is what I was able to come up with.
Success is predicated on a mental process that I have broken down into five stages:
First is obviously imagination, seeing the success, through the failures, in our minds. Like Alfred (J) Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Second is ambition, the desire, that burning desire to make that dream a reality. Like Nicole’s motivational video said the other day, “When we want success more than our next breath.”
Third is skill, having or acquiring the physical and/or mental tools we need to make it happen. And even though there is always room to improve and get smarter, we definitely have skill in spades.
Fourth is work ethic, being willing to put in hours and hours and hours and weeks and days and years affects our work and success more than other people who just quit or lay around on the couch collecting welfare and eating bon-bons while watching Days of Our Lives on TV.
Fifth is perseverance, that indispensable quality of getting up when we're knocked down and even more importantly of continuing the sometimes boring, grinding details that have to be finished long after the initial excitement has worn off. The follow through that ensures our projects go as smooth and seamlessly (carpet joke) as possible.
That, in my humble opinion, is what makes YOU so amazing. That, is the encouragement I get every day when I read and put together everybody’s numbers for the day. That, is what motivates me to go out again and again and be the absolute best I can. Thank you, each and every one of you for who you are and what you do!!
