Grind or get left behind. There will always be problem people and situations. Unlike the way it was in school, however, you will NOT always have the solutions. If you're on the cutting edge, you will find it difficult to find others who can provide useful answers. Somehow, you must still make progress in spite of that reality.
To be very clear, I'm not talking about surviving the battle, maintaining your position or proving your point. I'm talking about measurable advancement, whereby you actually INCREASE your holdings.
One mark of greatness is the ability to excel in the face of adversity. In a chaotic circumstance, it is natural for people to seek stability. Here's the problem: When real stability cannot be achieved, most people will settle for hiding out in familiar places.
TEST yourself: When things get unpredictable, do you find yourself spending more and more time in your emotional, social and behavioral default zone? This can be a dangerous habit because it inhibits your ability to GRIND.
When I say grind or get left behind, I mean that you need to be proactive about pursuing your vision. If you have to get up early and stay up late in order to gain the competitive advantage, then that's what you do.
Stop complaining. Make no excuses. Find out what needs to be done and start doing it with what you have, where you are, right this moment. Others may stop when they get tired, when they get angry or when their feelings are hurt. If you intend to attain LEGENDARY STATUS, your exhaustion, anger and pain only add fuel to the fire!
Like Les Brown said, it's not over until I win! GRIND!!! GRIND!!! GRIND!!!
