The #1 Unspoken Rule of Success

There is a number one unspoken rule of success. If you work hard, that does not guarantee anything. People who are successful do not attribute their success to hard work alone. There are other things that go into it. It is doing the things that other people just don’t want to do that makes you stand apart.

Key Takeaways:

  • Successful people don’t attribute their success to just “hard work” or extraordinary luck. Instead, it’s the habit of doing the things that other people simply don’t want to do
  • Unsuccessful people care more about the experience of doing the things they like than the results those things produce. They choose the comfort of mediocrity over the struggles of greatness.
  • Every one of us can change our behaviors and learn to do the things that failures don’t like to do. We can do a lot more than building a great body. We can build a great life.

“The hard things, the uncomfortable things, the complicated things, the unexciting things, the exhausting things. They did them all. Every day, week, month, and year. Without fail.”
