Every four years there is a gathering of the world's best athletes competing for medals the very best takes the more revered Gold medal. The best students gets the best results overall at the end of an examination or school year. The best candidate gets the opportunity in an interview. Usually the most successful business are those that have with stood the test of time, put in the best resources. Recently at the Oscars different awards were given to the best actors and actresses.
Nobel prices goes to one of the finest,best scientist and academicians in the world. The best start-ups gets the most funds from angel investors or crowd-funds. Best painters are those the world usually celebrates.
Everyone one of these achievements have not come easily they worked for it, Olympiads starts preparations four years prior to the Olympic event, the best are those while their counterparts slept they studied upwards into the night, they are the once who make the most research and pay most attention in class. The best businesses work efficiently and maintain overall good standards. Best actresses and actors don't just get the roles they proved it and rehearse so many times to perfect their skills.
I have done researches about Nobel prize winners in sciences, as a student I even studied some of them,they were men that devoted most of their life in their chosen fields,they worked so hard. In this era we celebrate men that brought innovations and ideas that changed the world,and their stories were much of dedication and hard work.
There is a quote I loved as a kid,which read "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration- Thomas Edison " this is a man that have lots of inventions to his name,he was simply considered a genius but in those words he explained to us what makes any man a genius. He put so many hard work into his career one of the best and noted was trying over a thousand experiments before he discovered the electric bulb.
Having said this it means any-man could achieve extraordinary things if he can devote his life to one thing that makes all the difference, another man we celebrate as a Genius today not may of us knew Einstein was a laconic youth and didn't started to speak early as a child, infact it was once said by a teacher in his elementary class that the boy who never be of any use in life,but is spontaneous inspiration and hard-work paid off. We can all achieve remarkable things if we realize no pain no gain,consider the following things.
1.You must learn to make sacrifice to achieve great things, no good or great thing comes easy, so you have to put a great amount of determination and dedication to anything if you want to be the best. I put in extra hours on wards into the night to learn so much in other to excel at my work,those paid of in the expertise I can boast of now and yet there is still so much work to be done.
2.If you want to achieve great results you must decide to change the ways you do things, you can be very industrious and hardworking but if it doesn't produce the required results, you may never be reckoned with, check the way you do things,it may even require you to do a rethink and change your approach.
3.You choose to be different, in your practice of efficiency, you would often require to work more to achieve some results but be wise, check the things that makes you work best and unique,invest so much in your strength and separate your self from the pack.
