It’s like anything else – you just need to be given a chance…
With exercise – when you reach a certain milestone or work-out goal, you’re motivated and confident you can reach the next target.
In business – with each achievement comes a hunger for more, a starvation you feed by cross-checking the notes of success with the wealth of knowledge gained from failure.
Relationships with others become stale and predictable without achievements together…from the high of accomplishing a shared goal to overcoming some long-term disagreement.
Achievement is a crave…because achievement is admired. It’s a magnet that pulls others toward you; everyone loves a winner!
But achievement…never…magically occurs. You gotta show up…you gotta be there…you have to be motivated…tenacious…curious…relentless; and willing to fail.
Achievement starts with a “try” – not a “willingness” to try, but an actual attempt.
In fact, achievement’s really nothing more than two key ingredients:
Timing…and whole lot of trying…
When you’re struggling, motivation zapped – remember those two important ingredients…and exploit the one you can actually control.
‘Cause without “the try” – the recipe for achievement is incomplete when timing finally finds you.
