You know the longer I am in business and in life, I find that this is more true.
- The second mile, the third mile, and fourth miles are really not that crowded. The crowd thins out the longer you run.
- During the week at the office. The one hour or the two hours before everyone is supposed to start work is really not the crowded either.
- Saturday mornings at the office you don’t have to worry about the coffee pot getting emptied very quickly.
- By February of a new year, you can usually get back to your favorite machine during the time you go to the gym.
- There are usually not traffic jams past 6:30 pm during the workweek. Probably closer to six depending on where you live.
- Most volunteer organizations struggle with attendance at events they hold.
- Most diets fail within the first seven days.
I could probably create a more exhaustive list than this, but you get the point. Most people aren’t willing to pay the price for success. The natural gravitation pull is down. I think we can all agree that down is usually associated with easier and less challenging. If that is true, then we have to find ways to rise up and push up so we can realize the benefits of success. Success has a price tag. Are you willing to pay the price for success.
Remember life is full of seasons. Seasons don’t last forever. Summer is not 8 months out of the year. Winter is only a few months. So investing the time and resources for a season has the potential to pay off big time. What season are you in?
What are you willing to do this week to pay the price for success?
