The more I listen to different successful people on YouTube, the more I wonder why not more of us get to similar levels of success. While writing these words I realized something: working hard is hard. Yes, it’s not a surprize or a revelation, but without a strong commitment, there is no way someone can go through the hell created sometimes by the hard work.
Passion and motivation are also required and they make things a little bit easier, but it’s still very hard. This morning I’ve noticed how hard it is. Maybe it’s because of accumulated tiredness or maybe it’s something else, but it took me 20 minutes to convince myself to get my ass out of bed so I can get through my routine, this post being part of it. I kept going front and back with this because I knew I had the option to sleep more and do my thing later. However, I somehow convinced myself there is no other option and now my ass is happy. Yeey, today I was stronger than my own self!
How hard are you willing to work so you can make your dreams come true? Whatever you think the answer is, I can guarantee you it takes more because you’ll encounter things to do that you haven’t considered in the first place. Those things also take time and you need to find a way to squeeze everything into your schedule and you probably need to sacrifice something (in my case, sleep).
This is why not more of us have that level of success. We’re not willing to go through those crazy schedules because it can be incredibly hard and we might not be strong enough yet. However, we can become stronger and we can deal with that as long as we find our motivation and commitment and we decide to do whatever it takes to create a better life for us and for our families.
How would this hard work look like for you in order to achieve your dreams?
