Almost certainly, the main difference between the successful and those that fail in achieving their goals is this….
The propensity to do what is necessary whether it’s enjoyable OR NOT.
In order to achieve something, there are a number of stages to complete along the way. Or a number of requirements to meet. This is true of anything. And the same end goal has the same stages or requirements, regardless of the person pursuing it.
Physical and mental capabilities really only enter the equation when the goal is very extreme. Most of us are actually capable of, especially physically, very similar potential.
The overwhelming difference is that the successful would choose to do WHAT IS NECESSARY whether they LIKED IT OR NOT.
They knew it was necessary and did it. Choosing the end result over the immediate comfort of pleasure.
No excuses. NO putting it off until tomorrow.
