In one of my last blogs, I discussed the critical action of persistence. You must persist until you are successful. I want to go further into that concept.
Half measures achieve you nothing except average. In the world of success and achievements, half measures achieve nothing in terms of results – except for tiring out the person engaging in the half measures.
This is why most people refer to work as though it were an illness. Only those who Go All the Way and see things through until they’re done experience the rewards that their work has to offer. Until an action is turned into a success, it is not done. Until you make the potential client a client or the potential investor an investor, you have not gone all the way. This might seem harsh, but if you called a client 50 times and didn’t close the deal, then you might as well have not called that person at all. This is the point at which people become reasonable and therefore don’t make it.
Commit to being completely unreasonable and don’t accept any excuses! Go all the way!
