Before5am | The Daily Agenda

There are no short cuts, you have to wake up every morning and commit yourself to mastering your craft.

There are no short cuts, no get rich schemes and no easy way out of it... You want to be great at something and that means mastering your craft.

Stop focusing on the money and fame and the luxury lifestyle - that's nice but it's an outcome of your work and the value you bring to the marketplace.

You want to know why you're not where you want to be in life?

It's simple.

You're not committed to a skill or craft or calling and you're not constantly developing and improving your craft to ever be considered world class and great in any industry or sector.

The problem is you aren't working to be great at anything, you want the lifestyle and the money and the fame but you're most probably neglecting the one thing that opens all doors... Being the best at what you do and doing it at a level that simply takes the breath away of those who watch you create your masterpiece.

You've got to get up early every single day and make a commitment to your craft and make a promise to yourself to work as hard as you have to work to become the very best that you can be and to master your craft.

I know it's cool to say things like "work smarter and not harder" and "it's who you know not what you know" and I'm here to tell you that you've got to get that rubbish out of your head... You’ve got to work as hard as you personally have to work to master your craft and you've got to become world class at what you do before anyone will give a damn about what you're doing!

Everyone you admire and aspire to be has mastered their craft and they perform at a level so high that you simply can't ignore them and that's where I want you to be and start working towards every single day!

How hard are you prepared to work to master your craft?

How many hours are you prepared to put in each day to develop your skills?

How committed are you to becoming the very best that you can be at what you do?

Work as hard as you have to work to master your craft and be the very best that you can be. Then and only then will you have the lifestyle, money and recognition you deserve.
