Hard work beats talent.



Whether you believe that or not is up to you but I believe it does and I'll tell you why.



I am an example that it works. I couldn't even break 5.30 for the mile when I first started running. Does an athlete who runs a 5.30 mile show potential to hold 5.19 pace for 26.2 miles?



Not likely to someone who thinks short-term but to those who are on the edge, the ones who have no concept of giving up, it is very much a possibility.



The same goes for you. Regardless what it is. You have to see that impossibility as a reality that can occur in your life.



If I had a dollar for every talented athlete that either got bored with the sport we compete in, got preoccupied with other goals in life or simply quit, I would be rich man by now.



An individual cannot rely on his or her talent to get by.



Someone hungrier and more driven will take the path you are unwilling to take.



Regardless of the chosen field.



People like safety and security. Anything that rocks the boat, out of the ordinary or what feels uncomfortable is not what most people seek.



You have to be willing and you have to be open to advice or else you'll continue to follow the way you have always lived.



We're only here once. Why do anything ordinary, mundane, status quo?



Who told you, you have have to live like that?



No one!



So don't. Take action.



High School Days



I remember competing against a guy that went to Bellaire High School in Bellaire, Ohio.



His name was Michael Budenberg.



This gentleman had ridiculous amounts of talent. I still have an old picture competing against him at the Bellaire Relays. I will try to track it down and post here on RDA.



My coach took a finish shot of us all about 20 meters from the finish line in the mile. Michael won in 4:32 with a huge grin on his face. He wasn't even trying.



The look on mine was drastically different.



I finished in 4.38 for 3rd place and I was giving it everything I had. It was my sophomore year in high school, my fastest time of the year and I was in agony as I crossed the finish line.



Mike went on to run 9.21 for the 2-mile and 4.19 for the mile while a junior in high school and quit shortly thereafter.



He had immense talent but the longevity simply wasn't there.



He was a great athlete with enormous talent but the longing for long-term running success just wasn't in his heart.



Everyone has different goals in life.



Delayed Gratification



I have tried to set the example for the hard work beats talent idea for as long as I can remember.



If you are not a believer in delayed gratification you need to move on to something bigger and better for your life.



Everyone has strengths and we all have weaknesses but far too often we let our weaknesses dictate how far we can truly go.



It doesn't matter what avenue it is.



You could have setting a new personal best as your goal, starting a business or doing something that scares you.



You have to be tenacious in what you want and you must be willing to think long-term for true success.



Far too many people want to do things yet aren't willing to endure and take the steps needed in order to get out of their current lifestyle.



I just recently wrote about this at length in People Before Profit.



Max International is a great company with an even bigger mission to raise awareness to not only athletes but non-atheletes about glutathione.



This is serious.



There are over 70 major diseases that can be fought more effectively if only more people knew about glutathione.



What astounds me is this is an antioxidant our body already produces but is crucial to cell growth. This is a super powerful component of the body hardly anyone knows about.



Athletes want to run fast.



They put in the physical work.



These are committed professionals regardless of ability level at what they do.



What they are not doing is training the other areas in their preparation. Nutrition is just as, if not more important then the training itself.



Hard work beats talent but hard work had better do more then just the heavy lifting of preparation.



You can't expect to outrun, outsmart and out maneuver an army coming at all angles.



There must be a executed plan for success.



I'll also add that hard work that has a long range outlook will almost certainly never fail against talent that isn't zealous.



The Status Quo



I have been at odds with the status quo all my life.



It stems from people telling me over the years the way I ought to live and it continues to this day.



The status quo wants you to believe that the talented athlete, businessmen, speaker etc simply was born that way but you can't measure heart!



We may be able to measure an athletes VO2max of lactate threshold but no test can measure the drive and focus of the individual who simply won't take no for an answer.



No one has control over what you are capable of doing but you.



I've been told to quit when I wasn't measuring up on the roads and know how it feels.



I remember reminding myself that I was a sub 2.22.00 marathoner while I still had a PR of 2.43.36.



You have to see the vision far before it becomes a reality and you have to believe that it will come true.



I know what it feels like to pour my heart out to people who I know are struggling as athletes and in their personal life yet still aren't willing to put in the work.



Success, regardless what endeavor you have in mind, demands consistent, endless focus.



I was up until 1am in the morning last night fixing over 120 broken links that were on RDA knowing I had to be up at 6am to go to work.



The long-term success of RDA demands I put in the work to make it exactly that and the love has to be there.



I couldn't go to bed until it was complete. No one has told me to create this site. It was over 2 years ago as it is today, a passion to impact lives.



There is no half-assed effort here. I'm not in this for the short-term, as an athlete or as a businessmen. Long-term committed partners and friends are what I am interested in.



People that are interested in breaking the status quo way of creating wealth and health.



The same commitment I continue to bring in my own training I will place into seeing others succeed.



That being said, people will not always follow through. They have to believe in themselves and we all need a mentor sometimes. I did to earn that Olympic Trials standard.



It took someone else to see an area of my life (running) that I need to adjust, re-direct my thought patterns and tweak a few things in order for massive change to occur in my life.



It also took enormous work and passion on my part. The longing to succeed must be there.



This goes far beyond running.



Long-Term Work + Belief = Results



The bottom line is this.



You have to be willing to endure and put in the work when others don't want to take action.



It doesn't make you any better then them. It simply means you've gotten to the edge and you look over and see your options.



You change course or you keep getting the same results.



I discuss an option here in Max because I see far too many people unhappy with the amount of free time they have and that hurts me because I feel it too.



I've given 25 of my 37 years on this earth to work that I truly wasn't passionate about.



It takes me away from writing, creating, motivating others and instead 8 hours of my day is spent around people complaining about meetings they must attend, hours they have to work



yet no one is doing anything about it.



My mother used to tell me a story when I was a kid.



She said, if you walked into a room and looked at the ceiling and it was filled with multi-colored lights and one light was burned out, which one would you notice first?



I told her, 'I would notice the one that was unlike the others'. Go and do that.



If everyone around you is doing the same thing expecting different results perhaps you need to change environments.



Imagine creating a way to throw a wrench into the equation that has had you stuck in that matrix?



Everyone has different goals in life. There are people in this world who are happy working in a factory. How can you blame them? It is all they have ever known.



I grew up in a very small mill town near Pittsburgh called Mingo Junction, Ohio. It is a small town with an enormous work ethic, yet Mingo continues to decline.



There is very little funding to build the town up.



Hard working men and women continue to work in the mills in the town trading their time for barely enough money to make ends meet.



It is my hometown and I love visiting because the work ethic inspires me but at the same time I see people who know no other way to earn a living.



There are others ways to do this but much like training and advice, you either are willing to put in the work and listen or continue to answer to someone else who handles your time for you.



Results Come Depending On How You Adjust Course



I believe this with all my heart.



Control and leverage of your time is the most powerful, precious and priceless gifts we have and we had all better start paying closer attention then we currently are.



We have to cherish and protect it just as we do in our training.



You don't go out and earn a Boston Marathon qualifying time by talking about.



Cast aside the longing for money. Seek knowledge and control of your own time, search for alternatives that the majority of the people around you are not looking at.



Forget trying to build a business on your own. People that think they achieve everything on their own without help are kidding themselves.



It takes a team, someone that has been where you are at, dreams as you dream and longs to live, not simply to exist.



If you keeping getting the same result, are you going to continue to do the same type of training?



I think it is safe to say you would begin to get fed up and either quit or try something new.



People don't start making massive change in their life until they finally make the decision to take action. I work around extremely driven and bright individuals, only one problem, they are all miserable, complain all day about why they hate their jobs.



Guess what.



I see no one taking action to change the environment they are in. They accept it, that this is what they are stuck with and the continue to trade their time for money.



Bills need to be payed, mouths needs to be fed.



5 days of work for 2 days of freedom is not a win-win situation folks.



Why do we accept it?
