Influencing Powerful People - #7

“The tremendous energy of powerful people is sustained by a deep-rooted drive to succeed, especially against the odds and in the face of real or perceived obstacles.”

Energy – what an essential ingredient for success!

A couple of years ago, I wrote:

Willpower consumes energy. Energy is scarce. Use willpower wisely.

Willpower must be one of the human body's most energy-intensive processes.

We must exercise willpower or it becomes weak.

We must rest willpower so it re-energizes.

Exercising it wisely and resting it: these are the keys to building willpower and growing success.

Now, as Dirk confirms, a deep-rooted drive to succeed somehow ignites and sustains people's energy. And, powerful people have a deep-rooted drive to succeed. Powerful people clearly understand their goals and the effort they must sustain in order to achieve those goals. With efforts and energy focused toward achieving goals, decisions become easier and exercising willpower can more-easily become a habit. 

 

Persistence is Self-Discipline in Thought then Action then Thought then Action then Thought then Action...

The Thinking Behind the Tweet

Brian Tracy said, "Persistence is self-discipline in action."

I believe desired Actions are always preceded by desired Thoughts.

In order to achieve Goals we must first discipline our Thoughts then those disciplined Thoughts will govern our Actions.

The habit of self-discipline is an essential ingredient of success.
