Play the game and be the bestHere we are at part 10 of 10 in the series of articles covering the principles of the great Albert Einstein.

I will be talking about learning about your niche and then going out and crushing it!

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Einstein

This statement can be based on so many things in life, ranging from sport to business. The best teams mostly win the most prizes, but this doesn’t mean that the team is full of the very best players. There is more to a team than just being the best individual. This, of course, doesn’t mean that the best teams cannot contain the best player of all. That could be YOU in your chosen field as long as you are willing to learn the skills and do the work to make it so.

Being The Best Requires Dedication.

Dedication and the desire to achieve your goals. Great assets to have and work on. When you dedicate yourself to learn the skills, you’re learning the game. When you learn the game, you need the desire to keep going forward so you can develop into the best you can be.

Most of us have heard of Lionel Messi or Christiano Ronaldo. The two top players in the world of football (soccer). I remember when Ronaldo went to Manchester United as a teenager, he stated he was going to be the best and never stopped working. He would always be practicing to improve his game and skills. The top players are at the pinnacle of their game for a reason. That reason is that they do not give up UNTIL they get to where they want to be.

This is also true in the business world. People like Richard Branson, who is dyslexic, never let this get in the way of his progress. His determination and desire to succeed was obvious to all around him. This is the case with many other top business and career people. Others who suffer from dyslexia and have overcome it to be very successful are:

  • Whoopie Goldberg
  • Daniel Radcliffe
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Keira Knightly

Who would think that people who RELY on reading in their career could be so successful and yet suffer from this. It’s down to determination and desire as well as a good deal of talent that they achieve and become successful.

There Are No Excuses If You Want To Be The Best.

Of course, we all have bad days as well as good ones. The thing to always remember is what your “why” is. What is the reason for wanting to be successful?

Use this to fuel your dedication and desire and learn. Be like a “sponge” and learn everything you can from the best people you can find who can help you. THEN TAKE ACTION! Nothing comes without ACTION!

Your actions will define the level of your success. The value you bring to the marketplace will build your fortune. You must be prepared to GIVE as well as take. Those who give, receive back. Whatever you learn, be the person who gives back so that you can help others to emulate your success. You will be remembered because of this and be acclaimed as one of the best in your industry.

Don’t expect things to happen overnight. Learn what is necessary and develop your new skills to become the “go to” person in your niche. Lead your team by example and grow. It all starts from the lowest point. Remember that an overnight success is achieved over several years, but it appears that you just came to the fore very quickly. Nobody knows the groundwork you did to build the sure foundation leading that success.

Strive to be the best you can be. It doesn’t matter what your field of expertise. The best are the best because they didn’t stop trying to improve and, even at the lowest point on the way, they didn’t give up. Success is full of failure. The main thing to remember is that failure is feedback.

If you truly want to be the best, learn what you need to learn and take massive action. You WILL crush it.

To the future,
