One of the greatest threats to success is not failure but boredom.
You have to learn to fall in love with boredom. Never in the sense of mindlessly cultivating self-harming habits. But rather in the sense of embracing the daily grind and lack of motivation which you will inevitably feel if you work long and hard enough for your dreams.
Stepping up when it’s annoying, painful or draining to do so. That’s what makes the difference between a professional and an amateur.
Anyone can work hard when they feel motivated. It’s the ability to keep going when work isn’t exciting that will ultimately tell the story of success.
Professionals stick to the schedule. Amateurs let life get in the way.
Love the good kind of boredom.
