People who succeed in any situation have a
pattern in what they do. The fundamentals of success are very basic. First, you have to know what you want. Just like a destination on a map. If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re
not going to know what route to take to get there. Secondly, you’ve got to know why you want
it. If you know why, that meaningful purpose will
drive you to keep working until you get where you want. But you’ve got to know why. And third, you’ve got to go get it. You have to have the self discipline to put
in the work. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from
going after what you want. There is no replacement for hard work.
