If you have habits, you can reach a piece of your Greatness…today! Ask yourself, how hard am I going? What is your “drive to success” meter from 1 to 10 (1-nothing and 10-all out)? How would you measure yourself today? Take a hard look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Did I display the best version of myself today?” If not…start…today!
“Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others stay awake and do them.” -Anonymous
Work. Work. Work. Work that Work! You can have all the dreams in the world. They will stay dreams until you work that dream into existence. At some point you have to wake up from a dream and start working. This is what separates the ordinary from the extra-ordinary. Regardless of the dream, it needs to be fed consistently before the public can see it. Therefore since the dream needs to eat, you need to be starving! Not hungry, but starving. It takes tenacity to be great! Are you willing to choke on greatness or nibble on average?
This is your time! This is your moment. You will get nicked and bruised. It is all good. You could be the opposite, you got the ball rolling! However, you cannot get comfortable. You need to continue to push and see your goals through. You need to be willing to endure to the end. We wrote this article for the extra boost in G.R.I.T.! Reading the words of legends can inspire and give us a little “UMPH” at the right time. Read these quotes, get Gritty, and become everything you were suppose to be!
