What separates the winners from the rest is the fact that winners show up.
They show up even if they don’t feel like it.
They do the 4-mile run every day for months, even if they don’t feel like it, even if their sole hurts, just to have a shot at winning the half marathon.
They show up at the basketball court, train hard, and continue improving their skills even after others have left for Joe’s party.
They practice when they know they should, even if they may not feel like it.
They show up when they know they should, even if they may not feel like it.
Success is much like a wall – a wall of greatness. You build it brick by brick. Each day of work that you put in, you put another brick to your wall. Yes, it may take some time to build, but it is all worth it.
Winners are not made easy.
They are thoroughly tested.
They are tested on Committment. Patience. Endurance.
They are tested on Perseverance. Balance. And Courage, among others.
Yet whatever they are made to go through, they still show up.
Often with a smile on their face. That’s what makes them winners.
And fate cannot help but turn in their favor. Cause they just keep coming back – amidst a thousand discouragements.
Just show up.
Each day of work that you put in, you put another brick to your wall.
It is upto you to decide. The wall of greatness awaits you.
Choose to be a winner for the rewards are plenty.
But more than fame, money, or recognition, ultimately it is who you become in the process which turns out to be your greatest reward.
Show up even if you don’t feel like it.
