It’s funny how experts always try to figure out who will be successful… and who may not.
Financial Analyst crunch numbers to forecast which industries will be successful. Sport’s Analyst compare physical attributes to rank which prospects will have the best career. Colleges estimate test scores and G.P.A.’s (Grade Point Averages) to determine which seniors will be accepted into their institutions.
Now all those factors are great predictors, however, all of these ‘experts’ are merely making ‘educated guesses’ off of a work called Potential!
The truth is… a company can boast great numbers, an athlete can put-up great numbers, and a student can earn great numbers, but it won’t amount to anything without work.
Anyone can come out the gate with great numbers, but it’s never going to work out in the long run… without a lasting work ethic!
This same principle applies to our lives.
How many times have we seen a person with intelligence, not live up to their potential?
How many times have we seen an athlete blessed with amazing gifts, not live up to their potential?
How many times have we seen a smart kid in school, fail to live up to everyone’s expectations.
THE SMARTEST, THE MOST TALENTED, AND THE MOST GIFTED…
WILL ALL END UP WORKING FOR THE HARDEST WORKER!
A good work ethic will bring your intelligence, your talents, and your gifts to the light for all to remember. Without work… people will have to remember when you last showed potential.
SO IF YOU WANT YOUR TALENTS TO WORK FOR YOU…
IT’S NEVER GOING TO WORK OUT… WITHOUT WORK!
