How To Win In Life: Perseverance

October 31, 2018

"Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you."
- Unknown

Have you ever felt like you know your dreams are possible and you know that you are capable of achieving it, but it just seems so far away and to be honest you don't know where to start? Or what about you know where to start, but when you consider the big picture, the entire vision it all just feels overwhelming? I get it.

With only 61 days left of this year, I've been executing strategetic plans with my team and making adjustments as I go. I'll be honest with you, on days when we hit our goals and I see crystal clear results I feel energetic, excited and ready to tackle more assignments. However, when things slow down and results are barely dripping in I'm tempted to question whether all of my efforts are worth it. Through this journey, I've been reminded of the importance of one thing.


The truth is, the quality of your results depends on the intensity of your effort. If you want a successful marriage it only takes ONE spouse to practice the golden rule (treat others the way you want to be treated). When they extend respect, compassion, mercy, and unconditional love to the other spouse over time, with a little perseverance they will begin to see a return on their investment. The other spouse will naturally begin to do the same favors, offer the same support and give the same compliments. Together they will create a happy, peaceful, loving environment where both individuals feel appreciated, understood and accepted. 

The same is true in business. When you add value to your ideal clients, build relationships with them and help them know that you are on their side, without any hesitation, soon you will have a line up of people begging to work with you. This is proven science and continues to work for all of the worlds most successful businesses. However, these results don't come without perseverance.

"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did."
- Newt Gingrich

What Is Your Dream?

Close your eyes and envision yourself crushing your goal by December 31st. What are some of the steps you took to get there? Who helped you? Did you use a coach? How long did it take you to get there?

Now stop and think about how you will feel after you've attained your goal. Take a deep breath and celebrate! You did it! You crushed your goal! What kind of emotions are you feeling? Are you excited? Nervous? Anxious for the future? Alright now write down why crushing this goal is important to you and list 10 people that will benefit from it and how they will benefit from it. Put this note somewhere visible so you can use it as a reminder on the days when you aren't motivated to pursue your goals.

Trust me, I know perseverance is not easy. It doesn't feel good and it can get boring, but you have to believe in yourself and your goal(s) so much that no matter how long it takes, no matter how much work is required, and no matter how many times you fail you won't let your dream(s) die. Today choose perseverance.

I believe that your goals are worth it and every lesson you learn is developing your character to turn you into an unstoppable leader. So what are you waiting for?! Write the vision, make it plain and turn your dreams into your reality. The only real obstacle in your way is you. Let go of excuses and start creating your own lane. Until next time, xoxo!
