Table Salt

“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.” 

Stephen King

What a fantastic quote!!  Dave Ramsey spoke about this quote yesterday on his radio show and talked about how important hard work is.  Why do we even have to say it.  I’ll tell you why you have to say it, because it isn’t taught in today’s Western culture.  Dillegence is discipline with excellence over an extended period of time.  If you just work really hard you’ll beat 80% of the people out there.  So here are three things to keep in mind if you want to win:

1.  Focus on the Now.  What am I doing now… and now… and now?  How am I adding value to my work?  
2.  Do your best!  Not be the best, just do your best.  No one can trump you if you simply do your best.  If you continue to improve your best – you’ll become the best.
3.  Practice fundamentals everyday and constantly improve on those fundamentals.  If you sell for a living, pick up the phone, call your customers and new clients everyday.  

Oh yeah!  Here is a forth suggestion just for kicks.

4.  Find the Why.  The why is very important.  Find out what you want out of whatever your doing.  That will help.
