Some people jump up the ladder of success while others climb, slowly and sometimes painfully. Little by little, brick by brick, they get there.
I used to be a VERY slow learner in ALL things success related. I got used to taking bumps and bruises before achieving success so I thought this was the way it should ALWAYS be. I was wrong & things have changed. I have a much stronger mindset, a more positive mindset and much thicker skin, all of which allows me to use speed while achieving success.
If you are slow to climb the ladder of success, do NOT get used to taking the slow road too often. Sure, here and again, it will be a grind, but, my advice to you: Find ways to get there faster, and of course, do so ethically. I'll tell you how in just a minute.
If you're an athlete, an entrepreneur, or perhaps you are climbing the ladder of success within a company you work for, find a way to get the edge mentally and physically to move quickly up the ladder of success.
Here are some of the things I do to speed my success rate and you can use these just as well:
1) Have an UNDYING Belief in yourself. Kill the doubts and believe with all your mind, heart & soul that you WILL succeed.
2) Do the WORK related to improving your belief systems and self confidence. There is NO way you will fully believe that you can succeed and Dominate if you are taking short cuts, skipping critical work related steps and cheating yourself or others. There is NO way around gut busting, hard work.
3) Visualize your success. You want to be able to close your eyes and literally see a movie of yourself achieving the success you desire. This takes practice and at first seems odd and feels difficult. But, the harder your work, the greater your belief in yourself will be. The greater your belief, the easier it will be to close your eyes and play your movie envisioning your great success.
4) Consistently do action steps 1 - 3. What does "consistently" mean? EVERY DAY you must do something to bring yourself closer to your goals.
These steps are simple, but, NOT easy. Most things worth achieving aren't going to be easy. But, the better trained you become both physically and mentally, the easier it is to work hard & make the sacrifices others aren't willing to make.
When I look at my athletes from The Underground Strength Gym, the most successful athletes are the ones who LOVE their sport, every aspect about it, they love, even the parts that are stressful and brutally challenging. Their passion and love allows them to show up with excitement for each workout as well as a desire to train on their own.
Those who are NOT fully in love with their sport, the challenges it offers and all the work involved, these are the athletes who lack the excitement, passion & energy to train hard with AND without us.

I address success so often because I KNOW what it feels like to be at the bottom. I've met Coaches who don't care about those at the bottom but I relate MOST to those who struggle to succeed yet they have the desire and the work ethic.
I want to see everyone experience their own success, in their own right, in whatever endeavor they have passion for.
