WD-40, you’ve seen it, you’ve probably got some in your garage right now.
It’s a handy tool!
“But SJ, what does this have to do with your fitness blog and what significant does it play?”
Glad you asked!
WD-40 actually stands for ‘Water Displacement – 40th Attempt’
WD-40 cleared over $300 million dollars in sales last year
Well worth the 39 failed attempts to create the product don’t you think?
Success does not, and will not come overnight.
Success is a process, not an event
It takes time
Winning the lottery is an event - a game played by people who are not willing to put in the hard work to better their position in life and instead opt to waste their money on a piece of paper that gives them a 1 in 3 billion chance of striking it big...
Because success is a process, once you have mastered and performed the process it can be repeated.
An event such as winning the lottery only happens once, so you better hold onto every single penny because you don’t know how to get it again.
Every successful person and organization in the world today kept moving when they made mistakes and reached failure. In the beginning there was a belief – that they would succeed no matter what adversity crossed their paths.
We always see the end product; whether that be an in-shape body or a successful start-up company – yet we don’t always see the work that occurred day-in day-out to achieve the echelon of success.
I always get told I have 'good genetics' or I'm 'lucky' to be in shape. These people don't know I worked my ass off.
