You Can’t Have the Glitter Without the Grit


Tom Corley boats - crop

Many people want the glitter without the grit. They want wealth and success without the effort and the hassle. That’s why lotteries are so successful. Most would rather take the short cut in becoming rich. But the lottery short cut is also the poor bet.

The best odds for becoming rich requires daily, consistent effort. You must invest time in becoming exceptional in one thing. You have to improve and grow every day. Success requires that you continuously increase and perfect your knowledge and skills. You have to push yourself day after day. You must also force yourself outside of your comfort zone by doing things that are uncomfortable. That’s how you grow, through discomfort, learning, taking risks. It’s hard work and it’s frustrating. In the beginning of pursuing anything worthwhile, nothing seems to go your way. This is when most people quit. But a few don’t quit. A few fight through the pain and anguish and the discomfort of learning and improving because they understand one thing those who quit don’t: You Can’t Have the Glitter Without the Grit!
