Quote of the Day:
“The dictionary is the place where success comes before work.” Vince Lombardi
Meaning of the Quote:
Because words in a dictionary are arranged in alphabetical order, words beginning with ‘S’ come before words beginning with ‘W’. Therefore, it is the only place where success comes before work. In real life, work has to precede success.
Discussion of the Quote:
Success requires work. It can not be attained without daily, consistent action. The question is: What is success! “The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.” Yes, how do you accomplish anything? By taking action, action equals work. What is work? “Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result. Consequently, if you want to succeed, work is a must.
Moreover, there are many who desire success but fail to work and wonder why they are not achieving success. Success requires consistent daily work over and over again. So if you want success, work is a necessary and required part of that process.
We all want our businesses to be successful. Therefore, we must know what the required actions are and perform them day in day out until we succeed and then we still have to carry on with these daily required actions.
Also, being focused, determined and consistent are required qualities to achieve and maintain success. So we need to develop them because no one is born with them. Therefore, we need to do daily tasks that will help us to practice these qualities until they become second nature to us. Additionally, time is important to allow success to happen, but most importantly, we must first have an aim, purpose or goal. Write our goals down and take action and we just might be surprised what will show up in our lives.
