There really is no secret to success. It’s quite simple when you think about it. Show up. Work hard. Measure your progress. Adjust as necessary. Repeat.
When you look at it on paper, it looks simple. But is it? Not really!
I hear a popular term around a lot. People complain about the “daily grind”. They have to get up, go to work, deal with a bunch of crap, listen to an annoying boss (hopefully our instructors at Elite Force don’t say that :), go to the gym, make dinner, and go to bed. Then they have to do it again and again and again.
Sounds exciting and fulfilling, right?
I think of the “daily grind” as something a bit different. GRIND stands for: Get Ready…It’s a New Day!
Mark Cuban said in an interview with YAHOO, “Success is not a straight line, you have to grind it out.” When I heard that, something in my thick skull clicked.
Do you think of your days and weeks as mundane and boring? Are your goals exciting and igniting that fire in your belly?
Tony Robbins says, “People aren’t lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.”
When you have inspiring goals, you WANT to get up early. You WANT to bust your ass every day. You WANT to stay up late and burn the midnight oil.
I see students at Elite Force get that martial arts bug. They went from saying they don’t have time to train two times per week to finding time to attend 4-5 times per week. What happened? Did they find the magic formula to add more hours in the day and days in the week?
No. The found a goal, like Black Belt, that inspires them to find the time to get to class so they can make progress. Progress is the magic pill for happiness. We are all happiest when we are seeing progress in our goals. When we move forward with our fitness, health, finances, business goals, and family goals, we are excited to show up the next day and move the ball forward again.
That is the GRIND mindset. Get Ready…it’s a New Day!
Get on your GRIND today!
