What is achievement?
Is it winning an Olympic Gold Medal or breaking a world record? Or could it just be that you get 10% higher in your next English exam?
It all depends on the way that you look at it.
When you think of the people who achieve great things, like the winners of a Nobel Peace Prize…does it mean that everyone else is a failure? Not at all.
Not everyone is destined for great success, but everyone can become an achiever in a very unique and meaningful way. You just need a change of attitude about the way you look at success, and a set of principles to guide this change.
There is a saying:
“You can’t hire someone else to do your push-ups for you"
- Jim Rohn (self-made millionaire, success coach and philosopher)
This means that if you want a change of attitude about what being an achiever is, you have to make the changes. No one else can do it for you.
