The Magnetic Force of the Worlds Greatest People

magnetic force

The magnetic force of the worlds greatest people.

There is one single trait that I look for in determining the people I respect…

One characteristic I consider in people I choose to work with…

One request I have of every friend in my life…

And one requirement I always have of myself…

You do what you say you’re going to do.

That’s it.

You do what you say you’re going to do.

If some commitment comes out of your mouth, then you treat it as iron clad, rock solid, as good as gold, and as good as done.

That characteristic has become one of the single most important elements I look to develop in myself and that I look for in people I spend time with.

Why?

Because it is incredibly rare.

It is unfortunately unique.

And it is commonly compromised.

But a person who has it is a person who can be trusted.

It’s a person with whom you can develop a relationship with.

It’s a person with whom you can build a dream with.

Because a person who does what they say they’re going to do is someone you can count on.

So if you find one of those people, do everything you can to hold onto them.

And while you’re looking for them, do everything you can to become one yourself, so that good people try to hang on to you.

Do what you say you’re going to do.

It’s the most powerfully magnetic force of the worlds greatest people.

The Power of Will and The Hunger For Success

Success

Success often just comes to the people who want it the most.

Skills are a dime a dozen. You can find people with skills all over.

What’s hard to find though is people with “will.”

What’s hard to find is people who are hungry.

What’s rare, is to come across someone who wants success so badly that they’re willing to do any amount of work to get it.

You will know you’ve found that person because when you look into their eyes you will be able to see a quiet determination that simply communicates:

I will not be stopped.

I will not be denied.

I will not fail.

I will do whatever it takes on this day and every other to accomplish the mission that I’m on.

That person is precious.

That person is powerful.

We need more people like that around so we can follow them.

So what is your goal? And how bad do you want it?
