"For those who are willing to make an effort, great miracles and wonderful treasures are in store." Isaac Bashevis Singer
The world is a results oriented place. There are no brownie points for effort or second place finishes. Or for getting close or almost making it happen. Results are the only thing people care about.
Did you get it done? Did you make it happen? Did you get 'er done?
No one gives a hoot about how hard you tried. They couldn't care less about how close you came to getting it done. Almost doesn't cut it. The only thing that counts, the only thing that matters at all is whether or not you got it done.
In the big, bad, bottom line world, you either produce - or you don't. Results are the name of the game.
"Seeming to do is not doing." Thomas Alva Edison
A lot of folks are perfectly happy with almost getting there. They see something they want to do, something they would like to accomplish. So they give it a whirl. They give it a shot. Then, when things get tough; they pack it in and give up.
They never really gave it a real go, they never gave it all that they've got. And that's perfectly OK with them. Close enough is, well... close enough.
Is getting close good enough for you? Is almost getting it done close enough? Are you happy knowing you gave it a shot, that you gave it a try?
Or do you want something more?
"The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply." Denis Waitley
Do any of the following statements make you all warm and fuzzy?
I almost got the job.
I almost closed the deal.
I almost got a raise.
I almost made the sale.
I almost got the date.
I didn't think so.
You want the job. You want to close the deal. You want to get the raise, make the sale and get the date.
You want to live your dreams. You want to accomplish your goals. You want results. You want to savor all of the wonderful things life has in store for you. It's not enough to get close. You want to get there.
You want what you want. And you want it now.
But wanting is not enough. It takes effort, determination, tenacity and toughness to make it happen.
"It's not what you do; it's what you get done." Larry Winget
The only way to get things done is to do them. That means getting started and staying with it until it is finished. It's that simple.
And that hard as well.
It's not easy to go the extra mile when things get rough. It's not easy to give more when theres nothing left in your tank. It's not easy to actually finish, especially when problems and difficulties arise. No, it's not easy. It's not easy at all. But boy is it worth it.
Learn to finish what you start and you'll start living.
If you will keep going when others have given up, if you will keep giving when others have tossed in the towel, if you will just keep moving forward when others have gone home, you will definitely get it done. And bask in the glory of a job well done.
The Bottom Line: Success = doing what needs to be done, when it needs doing, until it's done.
