Slight Edge Principle #6
Be Willing To Pay The Price
“Leaders aren’t born, they are made.
And they are made just like anything else,
through hard work. And that’s the price
we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal,
or any goal.” –Vince Lombardi
Leaders aren’t born, they are made….
We’ve grown up with the idea that leaders
are born that way…as leaders.
And, I used to believe that.
We hear things like….”He’s just a born leader.”
Well, that’s not the case.
Leaders have to learn how to lead…
They usually start as a good follower,
learn from their leader, maybe make
a few adjustments in style and ta-daaaa
a leader is created…(not born)
That’s the way it happens.
The topic today is “You Must Be Willing To
Pay The Price.”…
Football coach Vince Lombardi once said, “…you’ve got
to Pay The Price for anything that’s worthwhile…”
There is always a price to pay…
Sometimes it’s money…
Sometimes it’s just learning
But you will ALWAYS have to pay the price.
Do what’s demanded of you to accomplish
what you want to accomplish.
Leaders PAY the price of:
1. SHOWING UP,
2. BEING CONSISTENT
3. HAVING A GOOD ATTITUDE
4. BEING COMMITTED FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME
5. HAVING FAITH AND A BURNING DESIRE
6. BEING WILLING TO PAY THE PRICE
AND THERE IS A PRICE THAT YOU’RE
GOING TO HAVE TO PAY.
Think about this as you prepare to become
successful in whatever endeavor you attempt.
Think about what it’s going to take to WIN!
Then do it… consistently over a long period
Remember: Do the EASY THINGS and also do
the THINGS THAT ARE EASY TO NOT DO!
