Motivational Thoughts – The Secret To Overnight Success

Work. Really hard. For years. And when a door opens, run through it. When opportunity presents itself, don’t just grab it — knock it down, toss it on your back, and sprint until you’re ready to throw up. Suck in more air and run even harder. Ignore the pain and head for the light. Run as if darkness itself is chasing you and failed steps will take your soul.

There is no such thing as an overnight success. There is only the dream of the overnight success: the myth, the legend, the want that we all have.

Lasting success is the result of hard work. Period. Dot.

If you want something, go get it. But don’t think it will come overnight. It never does. Be prepared to work hard, for years.

Be prepared to serve. To let others come first. To set yourself on fire. To set your very soul on fire. To offer your heart plain and simple, live and beating, right there on the table, every day.

Expect to be attacked. Expect to be ridiculed. Expect to be ignored.

Breathe. Hurt. Suffer. Smile.

And maybe, one day, you’ll find yourself wondering how you got so lucky — and you’ll realize it wasn’t luck at all.

Now, get back to working on your dream.

Work When You Work – EFFICIENCY (from “Eat That Frog”)

Work When You Work

To keep your life in balance, you should resolve to work all the time you work.  When you go to work, put your head down and work the whole time.  Start a little earlier, stay a little later, and work a little harder (and smarter).  Don’t waste time.  The time that we waste at work often has to be taken away from the members of our families.  We have to either stay late or take work home and work in the evenings.  By not working efficiently and effectively during our workdays, we create unnecessary stress and deprive the members of our family of the very best person we can possibly be.  There is a story of a little girl who goes to her mother and asks, “Mommy, why does Daddy bring a briefcase full of work home each night and never spend time with the family?”  The mother replies sympathetically, “Well, honey, you have to understand – Daddy can’t get his work done at the office so he has to bring it home and get caught up here.”  The little girl then asks, “If that’s the case, why don’t they put him in a slower class?”

As Steven Pavlina says in his blog, “Think about it, if you oversleep just 30 minutes a day, that’s about 180+ hours a year.  And if
you’re at 60 minutes a day, that’s 365 hours a year, the equivalent of nine 40-hour weeks.  That’s a lot of time!”
