Tuesday BOLD LAW..” Success is simple, not easy “…
Yesterday , I was reading a little motivational book entitled ” The Slight Edge ” for a few minutes and ran into the following description about success.
They quoted Earl Nightingale’s definition of success that ” Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal “…” Success is a process, not a destination. It’s something you experience gradually, over time. And here’s how real success is built. By the time you get the feedback, the real work’s already done.”
“When you get to the point where everyone else can see your results, tell you what good choices you’ve made, notice your good fortune, slap you on the back and tell you how lucky you are, the critical slight edges you made are ancient history.”
“And chances are, at the time you actually made those choices, nobody noticed but you “. It’s the little repetitive choices and habits that we consistently put into our work day that make for success over the long haul. Few people wish to copy that because it’s hard work to be disciplined day after day….It’s simple, just not easy.
Simple pays huge dividends over time….easy doesn’t…and that is simple to understand….
