I'm not the smartest man in the world, but that has not kept me from studying and learning from some of the most successful people in this world.
That has not kept me from reading some of the best books out there to help me become successful in both life and business.
Once you study and read from these people who are very successful, you start to realize they are all giving us the playbook to life and business. They are literally giving us the same advice but in just different ways.
It comes down to these (5) things: your habits, your inner-circle, your attitude, your effort and your consistency in all of these.
Yup, that simple. And yup, it's not easy.
But just because it's not easy does not mean it's not doable. It is very doable! All the people we aspire to become or the people that "wow" us have done it. There is nothing special about them compared to us. They did not get a "lucky" break and we keep getting "unlucky".
They were just consistent with their habits, they were consistent with looking at their inner-circle, they were consistent with their effort and they were consistent with their attitude. And the hard truth is that we weren't consistent.
That doesn't mean that we currently aren't or that we can't start today. But we have to remain consistent with all of them. Even if we are not seeing the immediate return, we have to remain consistent.
Let's take a hard look inwards and ask ourselves, "Do I really want to be successful in life?". If the answer is yes, now we know what to do.
