“There are no shortcuts or hacks. Put in the work and you’ll get there.”
–Jocko Willink

You don’t need to learn more. You don’t need to study more. You know everything you need to do it.

Now just go and do it!

That is the only way that you will succeed in life: It is the day-in-day-out grind of disciplining yourself to do the right thing in the right way at the right time, every time. That’s really what discipline is. Discipline is doing what is right even though you don’t feel like it. And doing it every day.

Get rid of the excuses. We all have the same amount of time in the day. You have enough time to do everything that you want to do! All the great innovators and CEOs of our country have the same amount of time as us. The guy who runs Amazon has the same amount of time. Elon Musk; same amount of time. 

You have enough time to do everything you want to do. You just don’t want it bad enough. But even just merely wanting it bad enough isn’t going to get you there. Because they are going to be many days when you don’t want it. When you just don’t have the motivation. You don’t need motivation. You need discipline. Remember: discipline is the daily grind of doing the right thing even when you don’t feel like it.

You have to be willing to put in the work every day. So are you?
