Genius Resides in Execution

The person you want to be, that business you want to start, your dream job, and even the lifestyle you always wanted to live is your reality waiting to happen.

The best things in life aren’t free.  Sometimes, even your most well-orchestrated thoughts and plans won’t go your way and will take time and effort to come to fruition. More commonly, the positive things in your life don’t happen the way you had initially envisioned it and your vision won’t come to life at the exact time you had originally anticipated.

The person you want to be, that business you want to start, your dream job, and even the lifestyle you always wanted to live is your reality waiting to happen.  Many people have been fooled to believe that success happens overnight. The most common mistake people make is throwing in the towel way too early.  

“Success requires first expanding ten units of effort to produce one unit of results. Your momentum will then produce ten units of results with each unit of effort. ”

-Charles J. Givens

Discipline creates habits, and habits create routine. If you want something bad enough, you must put in the effort and allow your routine to carry you during those times when you’re not motivated or feel discouraged. Always remember that ideas are cheap; genius resides in the execution.  Getting the momentum going is key, and the rest lies in patience.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
