John C. Maxwell once said that “A person who is successful has simply formed the habit of doing things that unsuccessful people will not do.”
Whatever business field you may have chosen, success will follow you, if you will consistently do the things, and provide the services, that others refuse to do and fail to provide. This makes for outstanding leadership and creates a demand for you, and what you do.
Unsuccessful people are always comfortable with following the trend and fitting in. Indeed, unsuccessful people are ordinary. As Elbert Hubbard said “one machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.” If you want to be successful, you need to be extraordinary, leave a mark wherever you go and make sure your departure will create a vast vacuum.
