The two extremes
My intuition and sources such as Gary Vee says there are two ends to the spectrum of winning. You have one end that is GO, GO, GO! All out hustle and grind. And the other end is Patience. Those who get both, win.
Consistent hustle, knowing your shit, and being patient will get you where you want to go. Don’t start hustling when you have no idea about what your saying and don’t expect results in a couple months. Why do so few people “make it”? Its because most people cant hustle and be patient at the same time.
Everyday should be a grind. You should wake up and you should get your routine in order and get to work. This grind needs to happen every single day for a very long time, so you might as well embrace it and love the process. You need to cherish the fact that this is going to take a very long time so it doesn’t make any sense to not enjoy the process. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you’re in it for the wrong reasons, YOU WILL LOOSE! Like I talked about in a previous article, be self-aware and grind on your strengths. There is no way your going to hate working on things your good at; you’ll eventually just become great
Don’t get discouraged by the time required. Nothing great happens overnight. Championship teams takes years to form and great companies are not built overnight. When things are not looking good don’t get down on yourself. You should always believe in yourself even when others don’t seem to recognize you or give you any attention. Be your biggest fan because if you don’t believe in yourself and what you’re doing, nobody else will.
Its really very simple, work hard everyday, know your stuff, believe in yourself, understand that its going to take a very long time, and you will win!
