Success or Failure?

What makes some successful and others not? Is it that these successful folks are just more talented that the rest of us? I've seen people who've faced inconceivable challenges and come through with flying colors, stronger than they were before. Yet some encounter seemingly small obstacles, seat on their hind legs and appear content to watch the world go by.

I often hear statements like "I'm too old. It's too late for me. I'm too set in my ways to change...I am retired now". I am perplexed at acquaintances who tell me year after year that they would really like to lose weight at the start of a New Year but surprisingly, they weigh more today than they did four years ago.

Maybe the answer is really quite simple. Maybe the unsuccessful are just not as committed to their goals as successful people are. I tell my daughters all the time - there is no magic anywhere. You get what you put in. Perseverance, determination, commitment and hard work go a long way to getting us where we want to be. It's time to stop wishing, grow some back bone and get cracking. If you need to make 2018 different from 2017, start executing now. Time waits for no-one!
