We live in an environment where we expect instant success, a microwavable life, in which we position our thoughts, dreams, and expectation onto a dish, close the door and within four minutes, it’s prepared, cooked and ready for our enjoyment. However , there is some bad news, this life doesn’t exist. It’s a figment of our imagination that stems from watching and observing successful individuals at the prime time of their lives. Interview any successful figure, and they will tell you that it did not happen over night, it was a constant grind, but with small steps, and passion, they fought it out. It takes many years to become the person we are destined to become, but it starts with small steps.
1) Be tenacious. Without tenacity the dream we have today will be gone tomorrow. We must be willing to plow through the difficult times, sticking firmly to our passion.
2) Have obedience. Respect yourself and others around you. Never do something out of desperation, and always maintain a positive image. After all, our repetition proceeds us.
3) Never stop dreaming. All we have is our dreams. Dream big, dream long, but most importantly never stop.
4) Just do it – The 1988 NIKE Big Idea Campaign “Just do it”, can be correctly applied to our desires and wants. Picture yourself in the place you want to be and just do it. Study, work hard, learn the in ends and outs of the business and just do it. Whenever someone or something throws you off your path, go around it, under it, or over it, and just do it.
The road may not be an easy one, but by taking small steps and following your passion the destination will be great!
