There are three common traits of successful people; talent, failure and hard work. Google any successful sports star, musician, writer or entrepreneur and you will find a story about how they have failed only to get back up again, dust themselves of and try again. Yes they are of course talented in their fields, exceptional even, but talent only gets you so far. A quote I found whilst researching this blog post sums it up perfectly. “Good things don’t come to those who wait, good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up.”
It’s that time of year when we start saying things like ‘I can’t believe how fast this year has gone!’ and ‘Christmas will be here before we know it’ . I am no different. This year has definitely flown by in the blink of an eye, and looking back I can’t believe how much I have actually achieved.
