en-es  Success
Success is a very, very lonely road. Very few people are willing to endure the pain, the sacrifice, and the diligence required to be successful. It’s an uphill battle. And along that road you’re not going to see too many friends.
You’re going to see your shadow most often. You’ve got to trust in your heart of hearts, and you’ve got to trust that what you’re doing, what you believe in, is a worthy cause, a winnable fight. See, the thing is, for many people, they’ve tried the same path you’re on and they failed. As you walk this journey, you’re going to see carcasses all over the place of people that didn’t quite have it. That alone should inspire you because you got further than that one person and that other guy. But you’re not looking to just get further than them, you’re looking to finish. How do you know you’re on the right path? Where do you go to ensure that? Do you talk to your neighbor?
No, you don’t talk to him. I’ll tell you about the neighbor. That neighbor is going to come in, and if you’re a little chubby, a little overweight, you’ll be like, “Hey, I’m thinking about doing a routine. I want to get in a training program. I want to lose some weight.” He’s going to encourage you at first. “Yeah, you should! You should!” Basically insulting you. “Oh, you should lose weight”. It’s never support. It’s negative stuff. So you take his advice and you start training. You start doing something. You start to get in shape a little bit, maybe reaching his level now. Then, all of a sudden, he’s going to start asking questions. His tone is going to shift, especially as you get in better shape than him. He’s going to start belittling you; because what happens now is that your success is like a spotlight, shining down on their missed opportunities. Success - many will love you for it. The majority will hate you. Because your success makes them feel insufficient in their current endeavor. It reminds them of how they could have done it, but they came up short, and how they didn’t revisit it, how they went at it and failed, and failure is what stood. They never revisited it again. What is the difference between a winner and a loser? The failure is there every single time, it is just the winner gets back up and does it again, and does it again until it goes his way.
So, now you’re down that path and you are all alone. How do you know you’re on the right path? How do you know what you’re doing is in the right direction? If you’re wondering if you are on the right path, look at the small things in life. How do you do them? For example, washing your car: Say you spend an hour washing your car. When you finish washing it, you put the CIMV | Success © 2017 | Curso de Inglês Mairo Vergara Página 2 hoses, the brushes, and everything else away, and you come back outside to look at the job you did but you notice a spot is missing. What do you do?
Do you re-grab the hose and pull everything out again to finish the job properly, or do you say “You know, that’s good enough. That’s good enough.”? The thing about good enough is we don’t know if it’s enough.
Until the nth hour, the final hour when everything is on the line! That’s when we find out if it is enough. And if we come up short, doesn’t that suck? I promise you, if today you never say “good enough”, tomorrow, you will always have enough. It’s the character of who you are. It’s not the title that makes you. It’s not the success that makes you. The character defines the success, defines the fame and it starts right there.
Championships aren’t won in the theater of the arena. They’re won in the thousands of hours in the training room, the laps, and the 5:00 AM runs when it’s raining and everyone else is sleeping. That’s when it’s won. The heart of a champion is a light switch that’s always on. It doesn’t go on and off when someone is watching. It’s constant. It’s how you look at something.
If your name is attached to it, that you do it right, to the best of your ability, every single time. If you’re dusting your countertops, do you dust around the picture frame, or do you pick it up and dust the entire thing? Do the job right or don’t do it at all. That’s the same person who has his hand raised on the podium one day. The exact same person! How you hold yourself in the small things of life build the character winning blocks of the things that we’re remembered for. I see them as one and the same. Do you hold yourself to the highest standards, even right now when no one else is looking? What do you do when no one is watching says a lot about what you do when they are. If you do it then, I guarantee you, you will be doing it when everyone is watching.
