MESSAGE #674 PREPARATION…
“Talent alone won’t make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: ‘Are you ready?’ “
When you go into a tennis match, you need to be prepared.
You need to have your racquets strung, extra grips, a towel, plenty of water, energy bars, sunscreen, hat, motivational quotes, etc.
You also need to be physically and mentally prepared.
Do you learn CPR when someone is drowning?
No, you learn it first, so you can use it when you need it.
Sports are the same way.
If you have a presentation at school, it is in your best interest to prepare by doing research, writing an outline, and practicing.
If you have a job interview, you should do your research on the company, practice interviewing and get a good night’s sleep.
If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.
Positive thinking helps, but you also have to put in the work.
