There are many reasons as to why my success is unavoidable.
It’s already here, for one.
What I mean is, my life as it is now, compared to what it was before I started all this is immensely better.
What remains is simply a matter of scale. Bigger, more effective, wider, more profitable, deeper, more useful, etc.
And it’s my attitude that ensures I’ll achieve my goals.
I refuse to believe I won’t get where I aim to be
This type of thinking tends to be infectious. Those who work closely with me start to pick up on it and get more done for themselves.
That increase in group energy then pushes me on to greater heights as well.
I feel a deep responsibility to those who’ve hired me or partnered with me, to do my best and a little bit more. I don’t know how else to act.
And my family and friends are counting on this to remain true at all times.
I feel the same level of responsibility to do my best for them. And combined with my love for them, this makes me willing to press on long after the point when I’d have liked to have stopped for the day.
But this can lead to burn out.
What is the absolute minimum I need to do to achieve my goals and what is the shortest path to reach them?
Working hard is noble but can stray into stupidity.
Have to work smart. I am always on the lookout for ways to improve this area of my knowledge base.
However, sometimes mindlessly brutal hard work can not be gotten around and that’s when the Marine in me comes to bear.
I can be too stupid to quit, in a sense
Marines are taught to never fail and to alter our methods if the current ones aren’t leading to a clear victory. Then we overcome.
Improvise, adapt, and overcome.
That’s us. That’s me.
I overcame a slew of negatives, to include even Death. Twice on that one!
If I can sidestep Death, I should be able to make a few other things take place the way I’d like.
I’m just sayin’.
What would it mean to you to have someone who thinks and feels this way about himself to be working with you?
