A Truth bomb by Aristotle

We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence,

therefore,

is not an act but a habit.

In our world of extreme displays of success, it’s easy to forget that true success isn’t bore overnight.

More importantly, it is not something we will feel everyday, in the thicket of the grit and the hustle to achieve it.

Much less sexy than the overnight celebrity is the true artist or the entrepreneur that spends 18 hour days in the grind, with little to show in their first, second, or even third year. But the true heart of success lies in the habits we make for our lives, be they physical or the internal monologue we tell ourselves.

Some days, it’s hard AF to stay on the course. But everyday is another chance to reinforce a habit, the means to the end.

Enjoy the struggle.
