FOOD IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT that provides nourishment to the body, and allows specific functions to work at optimum levels. Without it, you’ve got 3 weeks.
Water is a basic necessity, needed to maintain a healthy body, a clear mind, and a good balance. You can survive 3 days with its absence.
Oxygen is one of the most important elements required to sustain life. Deprived of oxygen, you’ll be finished in 3 minutes.
Food, water and oxygen…these are the vital, indispensable ingredients needed to maintain life, and in this message you’ll learn why becoming brilliant on the basics is an indispensable, mission critical asset for sustaining a long, prosperous life and career…so let’s get after it.
Success in all its forms consists of simple, fundamentals.
- Professionals respect while amateurs loathe them.
- Professionals master while amateurs neglect them.
- Professionals practice while amateurs undermine them.
Whether you refer to them as the ABC’s, 123’s, rudimentary skills, basics, foundational principles, universal truths, elementary steps, or simply as square one, the fundamentals are the foundational building blocks upon which all success stands.
When successful, the fundamentals you implement escape notice, as they are quietly doing their thing below grade. But when you experience failure, their weakness is quickly exposed along with the fingerprints of mediocrity and incompetence.
There is nothing more fundamental than a firm foundation built on the fundamentals, as anything of quality and durability is constructed carefully, patiently and lovingly to ensure a proper end result.
While focusing on the fundamentals is not necessarily a sexy subject, their mastery leads to sexy results in the way of a fit body, healthy portfolio, strong marriage, and well-adjusted kids to name just a few.
Success in any sport, career, or hobby is built on a foundation of timeless, universal, and pragmatic principles. From accounting to astrophysics, education to engineering, fly-fishing to firefighting, computer programming to construction, rock climbing to rocket science, and from raising kids to raising capital, all consist of fundamental principles and each fundamental counts.
Not one of us is above the law and not one of us is above the necessity of becoming brilliant on the basics. They are just as important to your success as food, water and oxygen are to your body.
If you want to learn how to get more done in 100 days than most people do over the course of 10 years by mastering the fundamentals of goal achievement, then check out this extraordinary program…and be sure to mark September 22nd on your calendar.
