'When we are good, we are sooo good though.'
You know who else is good when they are good? Everyone.
Are you a great employee, but only when it's busy?
Only go to the gym on days that you feel great about it?
Do your relationships never grow outside of your comfort zone?
Momentum solves problems. When you first jump in, you're moving so fast you barely notice the speed bumps. New job? So much to learn, you can barely keep up. New relationship? it's easier to focus on the new things that excite you, instead of building a foundation that will last. However, momentum takes work, you have to stay focused to keep it going, even when the stars aren't aligned.
Champions are built in practice. Great love is built through deep experience and tempered through hard conversations. Great employees show up(mentally and physically ready), every day, and get consistent results because of it. Consistency is the key to longevity.
Adversity sucks, but it's inevitable. Are you putting in the proper groundwork to make your job, your dreams, and your relationships, something great? Or, are you just a bandwagon fan of your own future, only showing up when it's easy?
