If you went to a pro sports game or a “big name” concert this summer, you saw some of the world’s most talented and accomplished masters of their craft. How do you think they got there?
Exceptional Talent? Hard work? Good luck? Yes, yes, and yes. But there’s a lot of hard-working, talented, professional athletes and musicians who were at the right place at the right time.
So what do you think makes these “starters” and “headliners” so successful? How about Discipline?
Day after day, true professionals stay focused and grind it out. They obsess over the details and reject the idea of “good enough”. They don’t just do things to cross them off their list. They do them intentionally, always with a purpose.
True professionals ask, “What’s the specific, desired outcome for what we’re doing?” And most importantly, they do the work and possess the daily discipline to accomplish it.
Do you know, specifically, what you’re working toward? How disciplined are you to achieve it?
