The Success Factor

It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through. – Zig Ziglar

What do you think would be the factor to success?

Is it grand idea? Loads of motivation? Bottomless cash?

How many people do you know with grand idea? How many of them fail?

How many people do you know who is always rah rah? How many of them fail?

How many rich people do you know? How many of them fail?

Those are good to have. But they are not the X factor for success.

Success comes from one single point. Ability to follow through.

In another word, persistence. Having the grit to continue.

Grind day in, and day out.

Never falls back. Never back down.

When obstacles knock you down, or hit you sideway, you will still stand up and march forward.

Have the courage to stand tall. And to smile.

In spite of sweat, tear and blood.

What is your follow through? How can you do it?
