One of the One

Why do some people succeed at work and some fail? Over time, I’ll explore many theories, with the goal of unraveling the mystery. 

The speaker of the first seminar I attended as an aspiring writer quoted this statistic, “Only 1% of writers are successful.”  In that moment, temptation threatened to make me quit. But instead, I resolved to put one step in front of the other until I finished what I’m meant to do. I imagine the percentage is similar in other fields. Many give up before they even start.

Instead of letting a number overwhelm me, I decided to use it as a number to attain. My goal is to complete the race set before me, and run with endurance, until I bust through the tape at the finish, and make it across the line. I will be one of the one percent who succeeds.

I know from research, that the main reason the other 99% don’t make it, is because they simply quit trying. Studies show that those who keep on keeping on eventually achieve their goals. So with the help of God and other people, I plan to put one foot in front of the other, until I stand in the winner’s circle. It’s never too late for a fresh start with fresh faith.

I will be one of the one. Will you? Get ready, set, and we’re off….
