We all know at least one person who seems to win at everything they do.

You may even be that person...

But even if you're not...

You still know what I'm talking about.

Believe it or not...

These people weren't just born with a natural talent of winning.

You can say whatever you want about these people...

But the reason they consistently win has nothing to do with talent or chance...

They didn't win the "success lottery."

They simply got out of their own way...

...and made the decision to go all-in.

These people have learned the power behind hard work and dedication.

NOTHING GOOD COMES EASY

You can never get more out of something than you put into it.

...and your success in life is no different.

Hard work is the price you pay.

But you wouldn't want the reward without the hard work anyway...

Because the hard work makes the reward much more enjoyable...

...and the skills you learn and the experiences you have from hard work and dedication cannot be replicated by anything else.

Whether you’re talking about business, relationships, hobbies, or anything else, the more we put into achieving success, the more satisfying that success becomes.

Nothing good comes easy, and nothing that’s easy is all that good.

The true fruits of life come from hard work and dedication.

QUIT FEARING THE WORK

If your goals are worth reaching, then why are you so scared to go?

What is it about doing the hard work that you are so paralyzed by?

Yes, it's going to be hard...

Yes, it's going to take a long time...

Yes, it's going to require your full, dedicated effort...

But what else are you going to do?

Nothing.

Even though you have to shed blood, sweat, and tears now...

The reward later is well worth it.

So, why is it so difficult to trade the comfort today for the comfort tomorrow?

It's not.

You just tell yourself it is.

Get out of this poisonous mindset...

All it does is tell you to wait and watch...

Hoping that better opportunities come along.

...and when they never come, you look back and see that your whole life was spent avoiding the very best things life has to offer.

HARD WORK IS THE ONLY WAY, AND THE GOAL

Here's the good news...

Once you recognize that you’re standing in the way of your own success, you can do something about it.

Change your perspective.

Stop running from difficulty, and start running toward it.

Start focusing on winning the day.

You want to stay comfortable?

Then you better get comfortable living a life of mediocrity.

You need to realize this...

Hard work and dedication are a requirement for success and happiness in life.

Once you understand this and start implementing it into your daily life...

You won't ever want to go back.

DEDICATE YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE TO GREATNESS

If you're going to become successful...

You have to be all in with 0 exceptions.

You have to be dedicated to true greatness.

That means establishing and holding a high standard...

Constantly raising that standard...

...and never compromising on that standard.

Winners don't cut corners...

They don't take plays off...

They don't let things slide...

...and they never accept a lower standard.

They are 100% invested in improving themseleves and purusing their goals.

That's true dedication, and it's what you must develop within yourself if your goals are actually your goals.

CHOOSE THE PATH OF MOST RESISTANCE

It doesn't matter if you're a talented person...

It doesn't matter what environment you were raised in...

It doesn't matter what you've done up to this point...

Hard work and dedication can get you anywhere you want to go in life.

It's the only reliable path...

...and the only thing standing in your way ... is you.

Make the choice...

Choose the path of most resistance...

...and see for yourself what it’s like to overcome the obstacles that stand between you and your dreams.
