Success takes hard work...


We’ve all wished that something would happen, work out, or be perfect: but wishes alone don’t make it so. Achievements of any kind – whether World Cup soccer championships or completing projects at work, take shared purpose, hard work, dedication and teamwork to be successful. We’ve all seen professional sport’s teams plan extensively to draft a ‘franchise’ player who can ensure a championship: sometimes those selections work out, and sometimes they don’t. On paper they seem to make sense, but there’s so much more that goes into winning, completing, or succeeding: unity and success can’t be willed by mere declarations. They take planning, the coaching, flawless execution, drive, practice, team chemistry, and a little bit of luck. Nothing this good comes without a lot of hard work – more than is ever planned for or thought possible. Don’t be surprised when the best laid plans don’t work out as expected: there are too many variables, too much competition, and too much you can’t plan for. Do what it takes to create the unity needed to help you be successful today
