Putting more hours in;
Doing smarter research;
Visualizing it happening and then doing more work; or
Thinking about it differently and accepting it for what it is. This last possibility escapes most people. They don’t believe they can think or feel differently about something. And they don’t feel they can accept reality. But they can!
If you want something different, do something different.
Take baby steps if you need to, but do it.
By the way, you’ll have to make a sacrifice or two. You’ll probably be a little uncomfortable. This is why most people don’t reach their goals: They don’t want discomfort and they don’t want to give anything up.
Will you stand out?
…it’s not working,
…or you’re just not happy,
then stop complaining/excusing/blaming –
stop what you’re doing –
and do something different.
Transformation is an inside job.
