Logic Of The Day: 15.02.2019.
There are so many people in the world that are so much more talented than you. They’re sexier. Smarter. Richer. More creative. More likable, more charming, better-connected, and better-looking.
But there is one, singular thing you can do better than them: You can outwork them.
This sheer commitment to keep-going-no-matter-what beats your stronger opponent, every time.
Prolific actor Will Smith was once asked how he got to be so successful in his career: “The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die.”
Anybody can cultivate this discipline. Anybody.
It’s the single most effective strategy to outperform the toughest competitors you’ll ever face. You just need to be consistent. See, it doesn’t matter if your competition is better-connected, richer, smarter, or more influential than you.
You can outwork and out-learn them by relying on your greatest superpower: Your work ethic.
