Being jealous of what everyone else is doing isn’t a good way to live your life. Being regretful about lost opportunities isn’t healthful either. Neither is settling for the status quo because “you’ve already missed your big chance.” How do you know that for a certainty? Whatever happened in the past is gone. Your time to shine is NOW!
Interestingly, a study published in Nature reveals that people often experience a hot streak at some point in their lives – like the man at the roulette wheel who keeps piling up his winnings, as his number keeps hitting. Or the basketball player who can do no wrong as he dunks ball, after ball, after ball. Or think about the recording artist who makes the big times, with one hit after another.
During our lives and careers, we all have slumps and we have hot streaks. You don’t have to be young to hit a hot streak. A hot streak is not necessarily about being massively productive. It’s more about the quality of your work.
I believe that the keys to success are
1. to follow your dreams,
2. to believe in them and
3. to be persistent even when others don’t support you.
As long as you keep trying, your best work may still be in your future. Never feel like you have nothing left to give.
