You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile ~ Brian Tracy
According to Brian Tracy, there are nine disciplines you can develop that will improve every area of your life. We have learned that every exercise of self-discipline strengthens every other discipline at the same time, just as every weakness in self-discipline weakens you in other disciplines as well.
Today, my articles on self-discipline continue as we focus on the Discipline Of Hard Work, with a helping hand from Brian Tracy.
I have always had tremendous admiration for those that believe in working hard and NOT hardly working.
unfortunately, it’s a rare trait. I’ve seen and worked with far more individuals that do not give it everything they have than the other way around.
We live in a world where a growing number of people need and expect instant gratification and they will take any shortcut they can to get the job done, even if it means negative long term consequences. This philosophy applies to all facets of life…and these tactics, even if they yield positive results initially will usually lead to damaging long term results.
Even now, in Network marketing, we see all the opportunities promising overnight wealth and instant deposits into your bank account.
True monetary rewards are a result of hard work and perseverance every day over time and does not happen overnight. It requires a consistent and persistent effort and is a process.
The fact is, nothing replaces hard work, and there are no shortcuts in life.
In my career as a Manager, I have hired a number of employees and the most important trait I look for in those I hire in any capacity is their work ethic. I’ll take a hard worker who might need some training, over an “expert” who lacks a work ethic any day.
They will pay far more dividends in the long term every time.
Goal: Develop a reputation for being a hard, hard worker. “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” (Thomas Jefferson)
Now, let’s hear from Brian Tracy and how he describes this Discipline…
- The average work week in America is 32 hours.
- The average person wastes 50% of the workday in idle chit-chatting with co-workers, extended coffee breaks and luncheons, personal business, reading the newspaper and surfing the internet.
- Rule: Work all the time you work!
- Start one hour earlier, and immediately get to work.
- Work harder, through your lunch hour, all day long; don’t waste time.
- Work one hour later; be the last to leave. Use this time to wrap up all your work and plan your next day. Three extra hours of work will translate into 6-8 hours of productivity.
- Ask; what is the most valuable use of my time right now? Whatever your answer, work on that every hour of every day.
- If you get distracted, or interrupted, repeat over and over, “Back to work! Back to work! Back to work!”
