Success in anything is a marathon, not a sprint. If you want to be successful, you must prepare yourself to stay in the game until you reach your finish line. Success is not a sprint. Success is a marathon.
Are you ready for a marathon or a sprint? It is up to you.
Billie Jean King said, “Champions keep playing until they get it right.” That is right! If you want to succeed in life, you MUST prepare to stay in the game until you finish.
Whatever you are doing right now, you must be patient. Success does not happen overnight. You will succeed if you prepare to finish what you start.
Bernard Berenson said, “Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago.” That is true. Because champions are learners. They don’t see themselves as experts.
If you want to be a champion, you must think like a champion. You must work like a champion. You must live like a champion. You must learn like a champion. Champions don’t quit.
Even when the going gets really though, champions love it. They love to challenge themselves. If you want to be a champion, embrace failures, embrace challenges. Don’t quit!
Champions never quit. No matter how tough and hard, don’t quit. If you quit, you are not a winner, and you never will be. But if you hang in there, you are a winner, and you always will be a winner.
