Success Takes Hard Work and Patience

We have heard it at some point in our lives “patience is a virtue”.

What if the secret to success takes only two elements? As athletes, I think it is safe to say we have all experienced success.

We all have our own opinion of what it takes to be successful, but I strongly believe we can all agree success takes hard work and patience.

Hard Work

Everyone has the ability to work hard. The difference between someone mediocre and someone who has achieved greatness is the determination and drive they put into what they do. Through hard work even the mediocre can achieve success. There is never any short cuts to success, but hard work complimented with the desire to achieve, determination, and always being motivated to get after your goal, it makes success becomes bigger. Hard work only works as hard as you do, and the level of success reached will only be as high as an individuals work level.



Success is not an overnight type of deal. It takes months, years, and most of the time decades to become great at something. The biggest thing about becoming successful is that you have to be willing to put in the effort. You to have be willing to understand, there is no quick fix. It is a process to become successful. It is important to take time in researching, reading, and simply learning. And don’t ever stop researching, reading, or learning. There is never a point to which you are too successful or know too much. There is always more to learn and become great at. The 10,000 hour rule, says it takes about 10,000 hours to master a skill and become successful at something. It is going to take a lot of time to become successful, so fall in love with the process. Wake up with the drive every day to want to become successful, knowing you are getting just a little bit closer to becoming successful.

The definition of success and the path to success is different and may be defined by everyone differently. But if there is one thing that can be agreed from those individuals whom are already successful, and people trying to reach success is that the two most important qualities is to work hard, and be patient.

Everyone has the ability for success but only those individuals whom are willing and determined to reach it actually achieve it.

Anyone can be successful, so why not you?
