Below is a short video that has been making its way around the web. It is a motivational clip that uses the background voice from this video.
As for the actual message, it is really quite simple. Don’t tell me how bad you want to succeed. Get up each day and show me. No one will remember you for what you planned to accomplish in life. You will only be remembered for what you actually did.
Hard work may not guarantee anything, but it certainly beats the alternative. Working harder than everyone around you is a surefire way to improve your likelihood for success. You may not be blessed with the natural ability of others, but it is within you to outwork your competitors.
How hard you work and how much you sacrifice is a personal decision. Not everyone is willing to give up as much. The choice is up to you and it is a decision that must be made each day. Deciding today doesn’t guarantee anything tomorrow. You’ve got to be willing to wake up again and repeat the process.
“When I was young, I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. So I did ten times more work.” – George Bernard Shaw
