Hard Work Pays Off

I Had a conversation with someone today in which we spoke about our goals and how to be successful..this person was adamant that hard work doesn’t ALWAYS  pay off in the end. They told me that some people work themselves to the bone for years and it just never seems to pay off..

Its simple you guys, I responded by telling them that the reason it didn’t pay off was because they had no purpose, they continued to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results & they never saw success because they were comfortable consistently being average.

There are people in this world that work for years within a company but they never progress and they stay at the same level.. I genuinely cannot comprehend why anyone would want to settle and accept average. It’s so important to continue to grow in whatever field that you’re in and be the best at what you do! I understand not everyone has the same mentality as I do but why go through the motions and be like everyone else in this world?

Know WHY you do what you do & exactly what you want to achieve.. Don’t get stuck in the same routine leading to no where.

Consistency Is Key.

Whether it is achieving your fitness goals, hitting your targets in work or being successful (whatever successful means to you) you need to be CONSISTENT.

Today was spent with my Uncle.. I admire and respect him more than he’ll ever know & I look up to him for the strength he has and for the incredible conversations we always share. Today we talked about goals, and achieving the things that we want in life and it really made me think about what’s important and what it really takes to be my best self.

Throughout my years of training & preparing for my first World Championship Gold Medal with Team Canada, the one thing I took away from that was consistency. I wanted to be my best self so I trained like it, everyday, rain or shine. Deep down in my mind I knew that if I took one day off, that one day could set me back a week, a month.. who knows maybe even an entire year and I was not willing to take that risk.

I have this same mentality today but now stronger than ever before. I know what I want to achieve in life and I will stop at nothing to make my vision and my goals a reality. I think its imperative to maintain a consistent growth mindset.. by always questioning what it is that I can do better?  What choices can I make that will get me closer to the end result? What can I read to increase my knowledge? What speaker can I listen to that will motivate me?  Where can I go to find inspiration to keep my creativity flowing?

At the end of the day I know that my vision & my purpose is what drives me and Its important to keep my head in the game.. I deeply believe that having the right MINDSET will take you wherever you want to go in life.  Yes, we’re human, we get tired, we lose focus sometimes but its important to RECOGNIZE that and do what we need to do to get back on track.

Believe in yourself & Be consistent.. Consistent with your mindset, with learning with your training.. Work hard NOW, don’t waste another minute.. one day it will all be worth it.
