“Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.”-Robert H Schuller
Being prepared or getting ready to achieve something is really the unsung hero. It seems we all want the result that preparation brings, but preparation is work…necessary work that we may not want to do.
I don’t know of much that occurs without taking steps to learn, improve oneself, or to take action before one can achieve. Whether you want to win a spelling bee, bake an apple pie, put together a dinner party, start a business, or prepare for emergencies, etc., the steps you take towards that end are not as glamorous as the end itself i.e., winning the bee; receiving accolades for a great pie; being known as a good host/hostess or businessman; having a plan and resources in place that allows your family to survive an emergency situation and etc.
If you truly want the glamour…if you truly want to be the hero…if you truly want to achieve some end,
discover the steps involved and do the unglamorous work. You know it will be worth it.
