What does it take to win? To be successful in life? Is it being born into the right family? Having money? Having tons of talent?
What makes some successful and others average? Why do some win nobel peace prizes, and others are doing good to get employee of the week.
It all boils down to your focus. If you focus on things that don’t matter, trivialities, and minor details you will struggle with getting ahead.
In our day and age there are probably more distractions than there have ever been since the beginning of time. If our phone’s not buzzing, our tablet is chirping, or our laptop is blasting something, or our TV is desensitizing us. Social media keeps us in a constant frenzy of having to “stay in the loop” which in reality keeps us more out of it than anything.
So what does it take to be successful? It takes focus. It takes hard work, every single day to fight distractions, fight things that are unnecessary for you to obtain your goal. It takes being hard core when it comes to saying no to trivial things.
Focus on the goal, and don’t stray. That is how success becomes obtainable. Go for it.
