No One Can Do The Work For You.

Progress takes hustle. Momentum requires sweat. You can’t get from where you are now to where you want to be without massive amounts of hard work. That’s the truth.

Anything that you want to achieve is possible as long as you’re willing to work for it.

You have to work for it. No one can do it for you.

You can’t delegate being awesome. You can’t hire it out. Or reap the healthy consequences of someone else’s effort. It’s on you.

The harder you work the more experience you gain.

Sweat is a multiplier. Your effort and experience and talent become better the harder you work. Which is why no one can do your work for you.

Because you’re not just going through the motions. You’re not just following steps.

You’re rewiring your mind with new experiences and updated strategies for successfully negotiating the world around you.

Failure teaches you. Loss teaches you. Winning teaches you. Every step. Every thought. Every experience. They teach and mold you.

Which is why you have to do the work.

You have to be the person who cares. You have to be the one who obsesses about the details. The one who finds a way when there isn’t a way.

You’re the one who wants the results. So you’re the one who has to do the work.

Progress isn’t easy. Success isn’t free. Winning demands you pay a price.

Get back up. Dust yourself off. Get busy being awesome.
