And from desire springs dedication.
Dedication is not to be confused with temporary devotion or hard work. True dedication means that you will not stop until the task you have set out to accomplish is complete.
So if you’re aiming to create a fulfilled life (and you should)… you should never stop pushing your self given boundaries.
The successful view this mindset not as a unique ability but an intrinsic component of success.
Lord Sebastian Coe (for those that don’t know, held the 800m world record for 16 years) put it this way, “Great athletes in middle or long distance events (really doesn’t matter the event) all carry at least one familiar trait and that is not enhanced by genetics, but an obsession with consistency.”
Vince Lombardi put it this way: “Winning [ or however you define success] is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning therfore is a habit.” and I’ll add, winning is a habit anyone can form.
See, we all know that habits are learned. When you’re truly dedicated, you understand that your dedication has no limits. Your dedication is nothing less than a concerted effort to follow best practice proceedures that will maximise your results in your chosen field or endeavour. Dedication is the force that brings you to streamline your life ever more in pursuit of your goal until you know nothing else and wouldn’t have it any other way.
