Everyone has potential but it is no secret of life that not everyone reaches it. Now more than ever, society is obsessed with succeeding and making the appropriate steps for doing so.

But yet, when we look at the grand spectrum of those that we call successful, those that we would have least expected are the ones that hold the reigns. Its neither coincidence nor sheer luck. All these individuals have three basic ideals that have paved their way into reaching their potential.

Work Ethic

Those that actually make it do so because they simply work for it. Every single day. They acknowledge that their rewards & results solely depend on the work that they put in. Their goals transcend mere ideas that they ponder about. Their dreams become a part of the self & they grind to make them a reality.

Generation Y is always on the move. But when you really look at what’s going on, very few people are actually making progressive steps. Everyone just makes noise and runs around in circles pretending to actually be going somewhere. 24 hours a day is enough if used correctly & wisely. Work effectively & efficiently.

Successful people properly assess each step to ensure a reward. While with MicroSolutions, Mark Cuban spent 7 years working 20-hour workdays without taking a vacation. He knew the steps he had to take and then took them, something I’m sure many of our peers lack in doing.

“Everyone has ideas. The hard part is doing the homework to know if the idea could work in an industry, then doing the preparation to be able to execute on the idea. Otherwise, someone who knows more and works harder will kick your ass.”

Betterment of Self

People who reach their potential don’t have materialistic possessions or elite status set as their goals. They strive & sacrifice for the absolute betterment of the self. Great athletes are always proclaiming that they’re just trying to be the best that can be, and as cliché as that sounds, it’s true.

Potential

Great individuals realize that advancement is recompensed only by the satisfaction they feel. All else will follow. Work hard not because you have to, but because you will be doing yourself a disservice if you choose otherwise. 

 

 Never Giving Up

Individuals that reach their fullest potential & most likely a prominent level of success willingly go against the odds set against them. It’s not that they didn’t properly asses the situation, it’s that they don’t care.

Never Give Up

The numbers don’t dictate what they themselves are capable of. It’s only with this type of attitude that individuals transcend overall expectations. To them, not trying is worse than failing for there isn’t a lesson to be learned.

Recently, my social media outlets have been blowing up with memes about how “the best friends are the ones who have known you the longest.” Or, “your best friends are the ones from childhood.” Blah, blah, blah.

It is a concept (and absolutely wonderful advice) that stands as a lesser-represented idiomatic phrase from our childhoods.
