Do you know what is the main difference between people who are doing great and ordinary people? The difference is that extraordinary people put in the extra effort, extra time, take extra action, go extra mile and put in extra focus in the area that they want to excel.
On the other hand, ordinary people will never go the extra mile, they will never work extra harder, or put in extra effort. And most importantly, ordinary people will never focus in the area where they want to become excellence in.
“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.” – Tony Robbins
Now, put some thought and think about your life right now, what are you good at?
Great people are able to produce outstanding results because they are great in what they did in that particular field. Take Michael Jordan for example, he is good in basketball because he puts his focus in playing basketball all the time. He trained hard, put in extra time, effort, and thought into the sport, consistently striving to improve his skills and try his best to become better and better at basketball each day. This is what makes him an extraordinary basketball player.
You can do the same in your field. Which area do you wish to improve and become great at?
If you are in sales and you would like to become the top sales person next year, do what Michael Jordan did to his basketball career. Train your skills, improve your presentation skills, work harder, put in extra effort, go the extra mile, and spend more hours into meeting with clients. This is how you can focus your energy into a single area and truly excel in it.
Have you heard about the story of the fox and porcupine? The fox has many ideas how to catch the porcupine, but never really master any one of it. On the other hand, the porcupine has only one way to defend himself, which is by using his quills. You need to use this principle to create amazing success in your life as well.
Focus in doing just one thing until you truly mastered it and are able to create great success from it.
