Do you have a dream? Are you achieving your dream? Have you achieved your dream? ….your strategy to achieving your dream and the strategy to maintaining your dream takes the same stuff
Hard work + More hard work + Commitment + Passion = Success
Today I was in the gym watching others around me train. The gym I train in is no ordinary “general public” gym. I train in a gym with elite athletes. Athletes who are the best of the best in their sport, not just in Australia but in the world….If the athletes are not already Olympians or World Champions, they are aspiring Olympians who are the “cream of the crop” in their chosen sport.
What struck me today was the amount of effort they were putting into their training. Not only were they sweating, but they were hurting…really bad. Some looked like they wanted to vomit, others almost crying in pain.
Despite being the best in the world…they were still sweating, still hurting, still investing enormous amounts of energy and time to do what they do.
Sometimes we can look at people who are successful, we can see the fame, see the title and see the perks of what their success has brought. What most people don’t see is the sweat, tears and hours spent training, investing into their dream….and then…..even when their dream is achieved, they continue to invest, put in effort and time to stay at the top. They don’t give up, they don’t half their effort and they don’t allow themselves to become complacent.
Don’t ever allow yourself to think you have “arrived” . Celebrate your success but never get complacent in your success that you stop working hard, reduce your commitment and lose your passion.
