7. NO ONE GETS TO BUILD MUSCLE WITHOUT BREAKING SWEAT
Have you ever come across a well built guy with six packs and asked him how he developed his muscles? I am quite certain the response you will get will be ‘Exercise! Exercise! Exercise!. How about a professional runner who has won several medals? He will tell you the secret is Practice! Practice! Practice!
Similar response is what you will get from any successful business man and woman – Hard work. This is one of the most important thing that will get you from dream land to reality. You cannot have a great idea that you want to see through to reality and still sleep like every other person, that idea should keep you awake when others are sleeping and should wake you up before every other person.
People often like to throw around the old accusation disguised as a back-handed compliment, ‘oh that person is just naturally gifted or lucky.’ I’ve had it! And it’s bloody annoying and incredibly dismissive, because those folks are not around when you are busting a gut to get what you want. Sometimes it just takes sheer hard work and your hard work behind the scenes is what makes it look easy out front. Want folk to read your books? Don’t wait for a publisher, work your socks off and build your audience reader by reader. Want your online business to take off? Prepare not to sleep a lot.
The truth is this, if you are not yet ready to do the sweat breaking work, you are sure as hell not yet ready to see your dream come to fulfilment. And by the way, hard work has not killed anyone, unfulfilled dreams does.
It is time to roll up your sleeves and get yourself working on that beautiful dream of you, you will get there.
I honour you.
