So many books on how to be successful....so few on how to stay there.
Why is that?
Because in order to stay successful, it's more work than most are willing to put in. That's why there are so many flash in the pans...so many comets....so many...failures. Some of my greatest success have come from failure. It's a learning opportunity, if you seize it that way. But how to you grow year after year...how do you stay on top once you've reached the summit?
It's a daily grind. A battle. A fight. One you can't be willing to lose. That's why only a select group rise to the top. Because they are relentless in their planning, but even more tenacious in their execution. The best of the best never shut it off. Their passion exceeds others beliefs. Instead of "I can't, I'm not, and I won't...." it's filled with "I can, I am, and I will". When they fail, they look at it as an opportunity to be better. When they are told no, they understand what it takes to get a yes next time. Obstacles are nothing more than challenges to overcome, and at the end of the day, they're already planning on how to be better tomorrow.
