Learn The Game, Then Be The Best Player.

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,

Barrie Evans

  • Hi Barrie,

    I am working on doing this – although my tendency is to spread myself too thinly, trying to learn too many things. My challenge and goal for 2016 is to focus better.

    Very inspirational post, thanks.

    It is a good idea to focus closely on one thing. I have had the tendency to try to “spread myself too thin” too, but not so much now.

  • Hi Barrie,

    Wonderful post. i especially like this part: “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.”

    Striving to be better than the day before is moving away from your comfort zone and you will start seeing changes.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • taking massive action is the key isn’t it? You can keep searching for knowledge, after you’ve already spent a lot of time learning. I’m guilty of this myself. there has to be a point when you put that knowledge to good effect. I have more or less stopped spreading myself too thin which was a big problem in the past.

    With all the info and “noise” aroung these days Sue, it is all TOO easy to do too much. Concentrating on one thing and becoming the expert and “go to” person is very important.

  • I had no idea that Sir Richard Branson was dyslexic.
    Oh my Steven Spielberg too? That is real determination!
    when you consider how hugely successful they are.
    My husband and to some extent my son deal with dyslexia.
    They have just developed their own way to deal with it.
    All these people have learned from failure as you say -it
    is feedback. Thanks, great post.

  • Barry,

    I have learned that I have to continue to strive to be the best, learn what I can from the people I admire, and then keep providing value for others. along the way I find opportunities and new ways to succeed.

    Warmly,

  • Hi Barrie,

    “don’t expect things to happen over night” is the best advice of all. When teaching others, this is the one thing that needs to be said over and over again. nothing happens overnight and I do believe that with this in our mindset, we will achieve the patience and persistence for whatever goal we set out to do.

  • Success is, as you say barrie, full of failure.

    That’s what really separates those who “make it” from those who don’t. whether you have dyslexia or not, there is always something that you can blame for your inability to deal with failure, or worse yet, the mere possibility of failure.

    the most successful people are those who failed fast, failed big and failed early on. they are the ones who allowed themselves to fail, and kept moving beyond that point without regard to the results of the effort they committed to.

  • Great article Barrie
    I liked “don”t expect things to change over night.” It’s like anything else in life, you try and your fail and you learn from it. all the successful people in the world have failed so much more than most.
    Never quit!

    I always say that success is built on failure. After all, you don’t get everything right, but success comes from learning and adjusting as we move along.
