“It is your ability to push yourself one step further that will set you apart.” — Colum McCann, Letters to a Young Writer.

Success in life is difficult. That’s why people give up every day. Many start the journey, but only a few people finish. Very few.

Your aim when you started was to finish. Same as others. But an aim is not strong enough to sustain you when the going gets tough. You need a better plan.

Here’s a better version of Colum McCann’s :

It is our ability to to push ourselves today that will set us apart and finish stronger.

Dear friend, success is daily. Every day you make a good decision and act on it, life advances you towards the finish line. Towards being a finisher rather than a quitter. And that’s a great asset to your success because every progress comes with the motivation to do it again the next day.

That’s what sets people apart. That’s how champions are made. From the discipline to accomplish the task for the day.

Final thought

Success is not a one-time future reality. Surprisingly, success comes with every right decision you make today.

What is your task today? And how do you plan to accomplish it? Today.

Go do it. That’s where your setting apart is.

Go do it. Now!
