Success Leaves Clues

Success leaves clues

Generally speaking I’m a pretty nice guy, but when I’m training, I’m not a nice guy.

Actually, that’s not true. I’m still nice, it just appears otherwise because I maintain a high level of focus and refuse to have it disrupted.

The natural order of things is disruption, distraction and chaos which most permit and some even welcome.

Find me someone who fiercely protects their time and attention and I’ll show you someone who has incredible results. It’s virtually impossible to defy.

Conversely, find me someone who’s passive about their time and attention, who would readily sacrifice it to ever buzz, and I’ll show you someone who struggles.

Michelangelo is quoted as saying, “If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.”

That’s instructive. Basically, work so hard that results don’t surprise you. Here’s a great example of that on a micro scale.

We recently got our Stairmaster up and running at Motivators and after climbing off, one client commented, “That’s brutal”.

In reply I said; “What do you think we bought it for?”

Success leaves clues and when you follow them, as Michelangelo said, “it wouldn’t seem so wonderful”

Here’s a simple method. Do things that turns heads. That could be level 20 on the stairmaster or it could be maintaining a level of focus where people mistake you for a jerk.

If it’s the latter, remember this sage piece of advice:

“You don’t have to go out of your way to be a prick, but you have to be okay with being thought of as one.”

Are you okay with that?

When you are, your results will show.
