Formula for success: Rise early, work hard, strike oil.
— J. P. Getty
This quote has always been in my pocket of great motivational quotes. It really summarizes how to be successful. If you want something done, you have to believe in yourself and then go out and do it. If you never believe that you will get to where you want, you have pretty much ensured that you will be right. Don’t neglect that sometimes you have to work hard, things are not always handed to us on a silver platter. If it is something that you really want, that you truly desire, all the hard work is generally way more than worth it.
Wake up, go out and work hard for what you want, then reap the benefits of your hard work and dedication. To me, that’s what this quote translates to. There is no luck or accidentally stumbling into success or greatness.
