When you look up the word determination you’ll find synonyms like purpose, strength of character, backbone, spirit, and courage. These are all traits already inside every one of us. But only you can find them and activate the potential energy.
To me, determination is found deep inside your soul. It’s the drive that wakes you up before everyone else and won’t let you stop until you reach the top of your own mountain, whatever that may be for you.
Everyone must find this inside themselves, we can’t wait for others to do it for us. So many sit patiently for that BIG break and blame luck for not being successful. But in the real world you can look at 99% of successful people and its determination that got them there. They made it on their own.
I ask you today to stop accepting mediocrity and if you are already successful keep reaching for something more!
To reach new levels of success, you have to ask yourself three important questions:
1.) Am I happy with who I am today and where I rank amongst my peers
2.) Can I be doing more to be the best me possible
3.) What am I willing to do to change in order to become who I want to be.
Mario Andretti says it best, “Desire is the key to motivation but its determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal- a commitment to excellence- that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”
You have to want success yourself and want it so bad that you won’t stop until you get it.
Ask yourself “When I look back on my life 10 years from now, did I give it the maximum effort that I could, or should I have done more?”
These are the years that create the rest of your life. You have no excuse not to be the best YOU that you can be.
As an organization, we are starting leadership groups and mentorships to help you reach your goals and maximize potential. I hope to see you there.
Let’s reach the peak together.
