4 Ways You Can Beat the Lack of Talent with Ultimate Obsession

Have you ever heard someone say that talent is the key to success? I haven’t and even writing it right now sounds weird. Yes, talent is an advantage in many situations, but this world is flooded with broke talented people so let’s not sweat that too much. You can develop obsession which beats talent and squeezes you the best juice of your success.

Have you ever felt the need to get something or become someone? You were waking up thinking about it, while you ate; it was on your mind 24/7, and you felt obsessed. This driven force is the power we all need to break through and score like self-made champions. It is the state of mind which you can literally develop within yourself and use all the benefits without being discouraged by not having as much talent as others.

Since I know I am not the only one who has seen people with nothing, make it to the top with their obsession, I have listed 4 ways which can be essential to your success and substitute the lack of talent you are missing:

1. No space for complaining

The first place you want to start to work on is your mind and mindset. Remember that no one cares what you are complaining about and it is only limiting your potential. Since a positive mental attitude is a crucial step to make up for not being the most talented person in the room, think twice before you decide to slip again and draw in negativity.

Years ago, my mind was very dark and pessimistic. I kept thinking about the worst, which filled me up with anger and robbed me of any hope for a better life. My outcome was, as you can imagine, as dark as my mind because I designed it this way.

Having negative thoughts from time to time is part of being a human since we all get upset or frustrated. The important thing here is to realize it and change your thoughts instantly. If you catch yourself thinking negative, name 3 things which you are grateful for on the spot. What happens is that you will change your mental state and after a few attempts, it will become a habit. If you master your mind, you can practically learn anything.

“Be obsessed or be average” – Grant Cardone

2. No feelings. Pure focus

No. I am not trying to tell you to become a monster who doesn’t feel anything. What I mean by this is that many people put too much importance on their feelings which then, defines their results. Feeling of being tired, feeling of frustration, and feeling of not having enough time for fun. If you want to beat any obstacle on your journey, you have to accept the fact that no matter how you feel, you must go on.

You must push forward; you must do this one extra task, resolve one additional problem. You’ll discover that when you direct your focus more to what you need to do than the way you currently feel. Most of the time you forget about your lousy mental state and enjoy accomplishing and resolving things which matter.

3. Become the hardest worker you can be

Nothing beats the talent better than hard work and hustle. Build strong work moral, and you will be able to beat anyone and anything. Even if you currently work at the job you don’t like and plan to quit there, still give it 100%. Not because of the company, your colleagues or your egocentric boss but because of yourself. It will build up your reputation and your confidence. From this point on you’ll know that you did your best possible and eventually you will do the best in everything.

Adapt to an attitude of a hustler and a hard worker. It will help you keep moving forward when you are tired or exhausted. I bet you already know that nothing brings more satisfaction and results than work well done. Yes, the mindset is critical, yes belief is something you must have, but if you don’t put enough action in it and become persistent, you will hardly see any real results. Commitment and dedication to what you want are one of the most crucial keys to beating the talent you are lacking.

“Determination becomes obsession and then it becomes all that matters.” – Jeremy Irvine

4. Find your strengths and practice until you create a talent

Another key thing to do is to find your strengths and use them. People often focus on what they don’t know and what they suck at. When you build a business online or offline, you are not going to know everything. That’s why you hire people or ask for help from close ones, and you focus on things you are good at.

After you do that, practice. I can’t stress enough how committed practice and consistent training will improve your skill set and affect the overall result. Talent is nothing compared to dedication and perseverance one person can develop and master. Do you think that those great athletes and sports stars become who they are just because the runner was born with long legs and basketball player tall? NO! They have thousands of hours of practice behind them, and that made them the best.

    Hello, Anand. First of all, thank you for taking your time to leave a comment and share your story. You already impressed me with strong dedication because many people don’t have any and I know how hard is to stay dedicated and keep going no matter what. I understand your struggle with identifying goals since finding our purpose is a tough job. There is nothing wrong with that if you decide to take action and find your purpose. This is an inside job where only you know the best what you want. You know Anand, as corny as I am going to sound right now, I believe that everyone was put on this earth for a reason and you aren’t an exception. Stop focusing on the fact that you don’t have goals and start focusing on the solution how to find them and what questions can help you find the right answer. One of the most powerful ways I found was to asking questions starting with “Why” as many times as I need. If I say, let’s say, “I want more money,” I ask myself “Why do you want more money?” If my answer is because “I want to travel more,” I ask myself “Why do you want to travel more?” Do you see the pattern? try it out and let me know what you think.

5 Things You Can Learn From The 5am Club by Robin Sharma

Avatar

Published

It has been said by Robin Sharma, “5 AM is the time of least distraction, highest human glory, and greatest peace.” This also happens to be the central idea or the core value he has discussed in his book, ‘The 5 Am Club.’ Speaking of early mornings, at what time do you wake up? Are you annoyed by the fact that you wake up on the edge of time and then rush to work in haste? 

The life lessons put forth by The 5 AM Club are exactly the learning and motivation you need to challenge your complacency. In your race against time, you may not have the time to read this fabulous book. So, we have summed up the key book’s takeaways for your convenience.

1. The vigor of waking up early

This is what the book’s most fundamental advice to everyone is. Waking up at 5 am every day can work wonders to avert failures and make success a natural habit. When we wake up at 5 am, we have more time on our hands than others. Besides, this is when we have minimum interruptions and maximum powerfulness of the mind. 

To add, the early morning peace is priceless! You can schedule your most important tasks of the day between 5am, and 8am. This book teaches us in the simplest way, how we can train our mind and strengthen it to deliver the highest productivity by waking up early. This energy that you have when you wake up in the morning and the few additional hours in your day are what serve as perfect ingredients for success.

“The secret to productivity is simplicity.” – Robin Sharma

2. The power of finding the right balance in life

The book talks about a precious lesson of finding the right balance within. We often talk about the need for mindfulness and achieving the right mindset to perceive things. But this book goes a few steps ahead of our usual approach to life. It highlights the vitality of mindset and introduces the concepts of heartset, healthset, and soulset.

These terms may seem new, but they are self-explanatory. The idea of heartset endorses the essentialness of emotional stability and well-being. Next, the perspective of healthset indicates the need to look after physical health. At last, soulset is an attribute of spirituality. As explained in this book, success prospects can be enhanced big time by achieving the right balance between these internal virtues.

3. The iconic 20/20/20 modus operandi

What is the first thing you will do if you start waking up at 5 am every day? Did you ever spare a thought about it? This book has the answer to this question, and you will be convinced that it is a great way to begin your day!. The author suggests that you should split the first hour of the day into three equal parts of 20 minutes each.

In the first 20 minutes of the day, you should prioritize your physical fitness and exercise. In the next 20 minutes, you should energize your soul and spirit via self-reflection and soulful meditation. This will prepare you for the rest of the day and will enable you to bolster your commitment and focus. In the last 20 minutes of the first hour, you should read and learn. But what are you going to read about in those 20 minutes? Read about successful people and their inspiring journeys to the pinnacle of success.

4. The significance of a proper sleep schedule

In this book, there is a mention of ‘a ferocious global sleep recession’, which is intriguing and enlightening. It hints at the state of sleep deprivation that this world is sinking into gradually. We often associate success and hard work with the notion of staying up all night and testing our endurance beyond limits. But that is not the right approach to accomplishing success, or rather, it is a flawed methodology.

Sometimes even if we do not have any critical work, we keep whiling our night time on social media or television. What are we gaining from it is the real question, and I am afraid the answer is nothing! We learn from this book that it is critical to look after your sleep cycle and start your day at 5 am afresh. Sleep and rest are indispensable for mental and physical well-being, or your productivity will decline.

“If you want to have the results only 5% have, you must be willing to do and think like only 5% do and think.” – Robin Sharma

5. The art of evolving

The book sheds light on the need to be spiritual and master self-reflection. However, do you realize the purpose that the routine of reflection each morning serves? The idea is to keep learning, keep reflecting on the mistakes and keep evolution an ongoing process. You should evolve every day and strive to be a better version of yourself every day. So, one of your primary goals after waking up should be to reflect on your actions and missed opportunities of the previous day.

To recapitulate, The 5 AM Club is a must-read book if you are a passionate reader. It has the prowess and charm to refurbish your perception of life altogether. Even if you cannot read the book for some reason, make sure you incorporate the above key takeaways into your life. By starting your day at 5 am, you can rediscover your lost soul and enthusiasm, and you would not have complaints to make about the lack of time. If you can own your mornings, you can go places on the ladder of success, for excuses are only for those who are not committed to their goals.
