To become the very best in your domain requires you to be better today than you were yesterday, to be better tomorrow than you are today….. and to rinse and repeat daily….. for weeks, months and even years. Few can. It takes guts. It takes monomaniacal focus. You’ll be hit to the ground often. The elite performers get back up, They try again and again until they succeed…. and then move on to the next step. And then the next step.
It never ends. The best always strive to be even better. It’s unrelenting. Their grit, passion and desire never ever fade. They take risks. It means constantly pushing yourself to the edge of your comfort zone. It’s the only way to get better…. in anything.
The performance of the very best exhibit some extra-ordinary traits – grit, obsession, deliberate practice, passion, clarity of purpose, and unwavering discipline – and leave ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to chance – mind, body, environment, and network are all rigorously tested and optimised in pursuit of their impossible goal.
