Success is 1% Inspiration and 99% Perspiration
Many people think that success is just inspiration.
They go about seeking motivation and inspiration,
thinking that if only they are motivated and inspired,
will they be successful. Yes, motivation creates its inner spark,
which in turn creates energy.
Both motivation and inspiration are very important for success.
However, over the years,
I have learned a secret that success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
The "99% perspiration" part implies that success is hard work,
and you must be willing to be inspired to create
that spark, but it's not just inspiration.
There are so many people who just believe in big talk.
They talk big and achieve small.
The big achievers are inspired and
they really slog hard like there is no tomorrow.
So if you want to succeed, remind yourself of this success secret:
"Success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration."
