Do the Work!

It has been said, and I believe it is true, that "many can say do as I say, but few can say, do as I do." Everyone knows hard work is needed to be good at something, but what does that mean to work? The fact is, there are a lot of people out there who want to be great, and they understand it takes work, but few actually DO THE WORK necessary to be the best. They do some of the work. When it's convenient. They try to serve their desire to be great without offending their want to be comfortable. They dislike losing, they don't hate it. It is the hate of losing that makes the best of the best do more than the others...they understand what it takes to really DO THE WORK.

If staying after the others leave, going to bed early, waking up early, eating right, lifting, running, going to class, getting good grades, making time to be a contributor to society be it volunteering or service to others, respecting authority in all areas of life, listening, welcoming criticism and help, getting up when you've been beat down, speaking positive of others, saying yes sir, yes ma'am, and yes coach, pointing the finger at yourself when things go bad, looking people in the eyes, keeping your promises, and doing all you can to make sure you don't get caught in the trap of mediocrity is too much for you, then you need to look closely at yourself, decide if you really want to be the best, make your course correction, and then re-commit to truly DO THE WORK! Think of the best in any field. What makes them special? They understand the real meaning of DOING THE WORK and they DO IT.
