I believe in my heart of hearts that successful people share a number of similarities. Work ethic, determination, focus, selflessness are just a few that come to mind. Above all else (and humor me with this one) I feel that all successful individuals are QUIRKY in one way or another.
Quirkiness is manifested in the willingness to do the things that most of the world will not do. It is not for lack of knowledge that everyone in the world is not as wildly successful as they dream of being. Knowledge does not translate to success, but rather the action behind the know-how that serves as the bridge.
The secret to overnight success…”20 YEARS OF HARD WORK!” There is tremendous truth in this painful yet accurate statement. Hard work is the foundation, but smart work is the quirky nature that separates the true success stories from those who fall short.
Today, I want you to think about your own life and the potential areas of quirkiness. Remember, when you think of quirkiness, think about the things that you do without even thinking twice, but that might be perceived as challenging by those around you.
I can assure you that if you consider yourself as success, YOU ARE UNIQUE IN YOUR OWN WAY and kudos to do for daring to be different. DON’T EVER STOP!
