In every challenge there lies an antithetical reward – a large, often unintended, opportunity.
Why? One reason is because the majority opts to avoid confrontation. Thus the obvious consequence is that fewer people follow through. The not so obvious consequence is the disproportionate reward for the few who do.
The reason is simple: Most people simply don’t stay in the game long enough to win it. Instead, they run out of steam or choose to settle. Therefore, the abundance that exists is distributed generously to those who do what the majority is simply unwilling to do.
I am reminded of a quote from my days in self-help: “Successful people are successful because they are willing to do what unsuccessful people are unwilling to do.” So simple. So true.
Life is not a zero sum game, but stagnation and lazy habits certainly create vivid impressions of lack and deprivation that people mistake for absolute universal laws. But fortunately, there is enough [enter your definition of success] to go around. Just do what most don’t: Follow through.
Be a Maverick,
