We struggle to picture our dream with clarity.
We fail to set our goals to reach the dream.
We neglect the importance of developing a strategy.
We don't form an elaborate plan.
Hence, we fail by default.
Let's assume you've mastered all the above but still struggling to reach the desired destination. What could be the possible reason for this?
In my opinion, it's due to the lack of PREPARATION.
Your dreams live in your imagination. Your goals, strategies, and elaborate plans are captured on a piece of paper. And yes, sometimes on the note-taking app of your phone.
But what differentiates the person who delivers excellent results from the rest is the routine, consistency, and execution behind the scene.
In our society, we are obsessed with success stories. We somehow believe that if we take these success story pills a day, we will be well on our track to become successful ourselves. But the moment we explore deep into the work that went into achieving that height, we discover the true treasure.
It's just pure preparation and work. Every day. Every week. Every month, for years.
The following commercial advertisement from Under Armour featuring Michael Phelps summed up my point spot on. It gives me goosebumps still every time I watch it.
I hope this inspires you too.
