Confucius once said “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence”
Well, A lot of people have the idea having a BIG DREAM and stay OPTIMIST are key to achieve their life goal, thinking all they had to do was sit around and think about what they wanted. After a while, it would magically appear.
I fully agree while thinking is important, especially critical thinking and planning, ACTION… doing the things to make what you want to happen real is much more important. Nothing happens unless you practice before you put the ball in play.
The will to win pushes you past weaknesses, talent gaps and the chatter from those around you. The will to win comes from your gut. It’s an inner knowing that pushes you past obstacles and gives you the energy to keep moving even when you’ve just been dealt your biggest set-back.
“Most people have the will to win, few have the will to prepare to win.”
Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you’re ready or not, to put this plan into action.”
It’s a lot like learning how to swim, ride a bike, or prepare to take your first Marathon. You make mistakes. You learn what to do and not to do. You use Just in Time Learning to discover what you need to achieve the next level. You make lots of mistakes. But soon you can actually swim, ride your bike, or hit finish line.
This is how it’s done in any field. Think – Practice – Persevere.
