Only when we improve our self-discipline and the consistency with which we do things, do we start to realise our true potential.
Dedication and self-discipline go hand in hand and it this combination that drives us to achieve new heights.
When you start to play the long game, you will raise your standards to higher levels.
I was never gifted academically; I was just driven in life with a will to never give up. Hard work with consistency will beat genetics every day.
You must also have endless belief in yourself. One of the biggest lessons I have learnt is that not being academically brilliant at school did not define me. I had to find my place in the world. I needed to find my purpose, understand what I stood for and what my strengths were.
Once I discovered this my whole life changed. Do not ever feel you cannot achieve the things you dream of. You can, but you must keep searching to find your purpose and to never, ever quit!
