There’s two types of people:
1) The average worker
2) The vigorous worker
The average worker works until he’s tired.
Until his friends call him to go out.
…or until he’s bored.
The vigorous worker doesn’t stop.
Nothing can distract him.
If he’s tired, he keeps going.
If his friends call him, he responds “some other time”.
If he’s bored, he thinks about the final outcome, smiles, and keeps going.
The average worker takes FOREVER to make progress.
…if he even makes progress.
The vigorous worker makes progress often.
The average worker lets mistakes and errors bother him.
The vigorous worker loves mistakes because he learns vital lessons from them.
In order to be a vigorous worker, you need to develop the habit of sacrifice.
Being a vigorous worker doesn’t mean you don’t have a life.
It means you work until you’re finished and then reward yourself.
Mastering your craft requires time away from friends, family, and hobbies.
It’s the price you must pay to get what you want.
If you’re complacent and don’t care to achieve more, then sacrifice isn’t something you need to worry about.
But if you have that fire…
That need to achieve more…
To be great…
Becoming a vigorous worker isn’t an option, it’s a necessity.
Sacrifice. Achieve. Be Great.
