The Fight in the Dog

What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

—Dwight D. Eisenhower

A Lesson for Future Champions

Having more or being more does not entitle you to results.

You can be an incredibly talented pianist, yet refuse to put in the practice to improve. You may start ahead in the race, but you will be caught and left behind by the people that want it more than you.

In the last 10k of a marathon, the people who place in the top 1% are rarely the most talented, or the most well-trained. They're the people who're willing to dig deep and push themselves to a place most are unwilling to go.

Successful entrepreneurs share these characteristics too. They're willing to make incredible sacrifices for their dreams. They're willing to put in the work that no-one else will. That's how they get their results.

More often than not, it's the people who're willing to fight and to keep fighting that emerge victoriously.
