Why do people succeed more than others? It's an interesting question. We all know someone who just seems to have "it" or maybe we describe them as "lucky." These people seem to find a way to success over and over again.
What is it that they have that others don't? Besides working hard and smart, and doing the things that everyone knows that are needed to succeed, the majority of the time, these people have a specific trait that cannot be coached. They have a burning desire and drive to see things through. No matter what is thrown at them, they keep going. They are like a hungry lion stalking it's prey. The lion doesn't stop until it reaches the goal and gets its meal. It's driven to succeed.
Consistently successful people have this same trait. They are driven by the thrill of the hunt, to pursue to end goal relentlessly until it becomes reality. They keep going in spite of the obstacles, the challenges, the self-doubt, the worry, and all the other things that derail most people. They dig down deep in the hardest and bleakest of times and keep going, because they know if they keep going, the percentages of success will finally turn in their favor. Just like the lion who hasn't eaten in days, but keeps stalking and attempting kills. At some point, they will win and eat.
This trait cannot be coached as it must be developed by each individual in the way that works for them, but it can be developed. The best way to develop it is to find the strenght and conviction to keep going when you want to quit. You have to break through over and over again. And when you do, you will develop this trait for yourself and you will succeed at higher and higher levels.
Unleash your inner lion.
