Want success? Model it.

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments.
-Jim Rohn

Commitment is what separates the Best from the Rest.

The difference between people that are successful and those who strive and never arrive is discipline. Finish what you start.

As a martial arts teacher, I have always asked students to begin with the end in mind. Then, I go on to tell them that the odds are not in their favor. 1 in 1000white belts make it to black belt. This isn't to be negative or discouraging. In fact, quite the opposite. Each time, I said this, it was my hope to spark a great desire deep inside their soul.

It has been studied and published in several books including Outliers and Talent is Overrated that the single biggest variable separating successful business people and professional athletes from the rest is their dedicated practice and commitment to excellence.

Want to be the best? Model success. Practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes Perfect.
