Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 980 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Concentrate on Success – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our five days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 980 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Terry Bradshaw, and it is, “Being gifted intellectually is only a small part of the equation of success. Concentrate on the factors you have more control over: persistence, self-discipline, confidence. Far more failures are due to lack of will than lack of ability.”
Concentrate on Success
While natural abilities and talents have an impact on whether a person is successful in various areas of life, it is a much smaller impact than most of us realize. I have known far too many people who have the ability to succeed but lack the desire to succeed. All success requires persistence, self-discipline, and confidence. All three of these traits you have complete control over.
If you desire to succeed, then you must be willing to exchange the easy path of today for the rewarding path of the long term. No success can ever be achieved by talent alone, but by using your abilities, regardless of how limited they are, and coupling those abilities with the confidence that you can succeed.
In addition to that confidence, you need the self-discipline to work through the difficult times, and the persistence to keep moving forward, even when you are weak and tired and feel like giving up. Nothing is ever gained in our lives without an equal and offsetting amount of effort, that is except for our salvation through Christ.
Proverbs 13:4 – Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.
