Never underestimate the value of hard work as a critical component in the success of your organization. Having great ideas and being efficient is also important, but hard work is often the determining factor between success and failure.
If something isn’t going your way… work harder.
Working harder means putting in more hours, watching less television, eating quicker meals, having fewer meeting, putting work ahead of leisure, and much more. Working harder is as much a state of mind as it is a physical act. You have to decide for yourself that you are going to make the sacrifices necessary to overcome your obstacles.
Here’s the key… once you’ve put in the hard work and you’ve successfully overcome your obstacles you should continue the hard work. Don’t let up! Hard work is a habit, so you shouldn’t be so quick to let it go once it’s not absolutely essential to your survival. Use your hard work habit to become even more successful.
I saw this video on Dan Martell’s blog a while back and it inspired me to the point that I’ve watched everything I can find from Eric Thomas. If you can watch this video and not be inspired to work as hard as you possibly can then there’s nothing that I or anyone else can do to help you.
