There are a few things that I have thought about this weekend that I feel are important to put on paper.
The importance of working hard to become successful. There are so many quotes that I want to rattle off that personify the journey that is involved to get there. I will post some at the bottom. I just read an article called 10 Essential Tips for Being the Best at Whatever You Do – by Nicolas Cole. In this articles it basically chronically this guys road to becoming the top 1% players of World of Warcraft. Though you are immediately thinking to yourself, what does playing video games have to do with what I want to achieve in business or in my personal life, you will be amazed of the similarities. Bottom line, great article that will get you thinking about what you need to be working on to make yourself a better [insert personal interest here].
Other quick motivational quotes that help me get through rough spots are:
“When you want to be successful as bad as you want to breath, then you will be successful”.
“Most of you say you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it… Most of you don’t want success as much as you want to sleep…If you are going to be successful, you area going to have to give up sleep”.
Both of these quotes come from a powerful YouTube video called “How Bad Do You Want It”.
Or another favorite from Mark Cuban – “Work Like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it all away from you”.
These are the quotes that remind me why I am writing blog posts at 10pm on a Saturday after just getting my son to fall asleep and why I will be waking up at 5:30 am tomorrow on Sunday to get some Universal Bookkeeper work done before the kids wake up for the day!
