The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don’t like to do. They don’t like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose.

~E.M. Gray


All those things we know we need to do to achieve our purpose but have trouble doing:  Having the difficult but necessary conversation with your business partner.  One more mile on the treadmill.  Saying “no” when you must.  Saying “yes” to that challenging assignment.  Avoiding mindless TV/internet.  And so the list grows.

Be the success and not the failure. Do the hard work, the challenging activity, endure the pain and persevere.  The purpose is paramount.  Know it, embrace it, and let that purpose give you strength when you need it.
