2024: The Three Keys To Success

As I have mentioned these past several weeks, success in whatever you do or want to do means you have got to put in the work.

Put in the work to become better, to achieve your goals, and to achieve that level of success you have always want to achieve.

All of that will take three things that are key to your success: perseverance, persistence, and passion.

Perseverance is defined as “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition”

Persistence is defined as “the quality that allows someone to continue doing something or trying to do something even though it is difficult or opposed by other people”

Passion is defined as “a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something”

Just by the definitions alone there is a connection that all three have and that is “DOING SOMETHING”

Thus, it can be said that SUCCESS comes from doing something.

Doing that something with persistence, perseverance, and passion.

Think about this, that yes anyone can do something daily but not everyone will achieve a higher level of success without persistence, perseverance, and passion.

Those without those three keys to success are doing the job for the pay check or a margarita Friday night, all the while hoping and wishing for a better thing to come along.

Folks, things will not get better until you get better.

Until you realize that the success you want does not come from the bottom of your daily empty cup of cinnamon dolce latte.

Nor does success come from your misunderstood perception of your place in the family tree or organizational ladder.

There are certainties, there are harsh certainties in life and yes, they do revolve around the three keys to success.

If you find yourself lacking the passion, perseverance, and persistence in anything you do or want to do, why are you bothering?

Do you bother because you truly believe you deserve something even though you are going through the motions and not actually caring about anything but yourself?

That is most certainly not going to get you anywhere.

However, to get to where you want to be is to do all that you with persistence, perseverance, and passion.

Do not worry about whether others like what you are doing or not.

Let them live their own mediocre lives, you have bigger and better things to achieve.

Your Future Awaits!
