I read this piece of work last week and really wanted to share this with you.
Its all about a gentleman preparing for a Big Speech he has to deliver.
As you prepare for 2016, what are you going to do differently?
What did you do this year at the start of the year which then slipped back into old habits but the middle of the year?
There is way too much "looking for a Quck Fix" these days when sheers guts, patience, determination and consistency will win every time
Some tough words here but oh so true, take a read:
YOU CAN GET GOOD RESULTS BUT BE PREPARED TO PAY THE PRICE TO GET THERE!
"Everyone wants to be a success. Few are PREPARED to pay the price that success requires. I don’t measure the price of success in money. I often measure it in agony. A long time ago I learned being a success often has nothing to do with talent. Much of it has to do with your pain tolerance and how you respond to that pain. Years of training and hundreds of free speeches and articles taught me success is nothing but a combination of PREPARATION and agonizing hard work.
When I delivered on Saturday, no one saw the months of work that went into that hour talk on coaching. I am also sure no one would have said I looked scared. You see, all my PREPARATION had removed most of my fear! The fear of delivering a bad speech had me fearfully PREPARING every day for the last 12 weeks. In order to be ready, I read books on the topic, spoke to knowledgeable people in the field and defined exactly what I wanted to present. Each night I would chip away at the powerpoint until I liked the finished product and then I presented the speech weekly for anyone who would listen. When the speech ended on Saturday, a number of people told me it was my best yet. Accident? No, it all came down to PREPARATION.
When you think of PREPARATION, I’m sure you have heard (and can even recite) this little nugget:
“Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance”
The problem with this PREPARATION statement is it has no value unless you know how to use it! Perhaps you think PREPARATION requires good luck. Success doesn’t involve luck. It follows a PREPARATION formula that has never let me down in 20 years. Regardless of your career, you can use the following 5-Step formula on any project to create your next great performance:
THE REAL 5 P’s OF PREPARATION
1. Prematurely Plan
Cramming never produces high-end results. If you want to succeed, you have to plan far enough ahead to make sure you have the time you need to produce your next masterpiece. Failing to plan is not only planning to fail, but a great way to stress yourself out.
2. Precisely Portray
World class performances never happen by accident. Until you clearly have defined what it is you want and the behaviours required to make it happen, your greatest successes stay nothing but your cherished collection of hopes and dreams.
3. Proactively Plow
Nothing will work until you do. Once the planning and defining of your project is done, it is time to put your head down and plow ahead. Don’t let the start stop you. Start digging your well before you get thirsty.
4. Patiently Persevere
Marinate in your work because success takes time. Rushing or forcing a result often leads to less than your best. If mistakes occur, welcome, learn from them and keep moving forward. Patience isn’t just a virtue, it is what you need to produce your next standing ovation.
5. Perfectly Practice
If you are going to do something, do it well. Practice until what it is you desire is automatic. When something is automatic, fear has no chance to enter the picture.
