You are watching: Success isn t owned

J. J. Watt is widely concerned as the ideal protective player in the National Football Organization. It’s been a difficult stretch for the NFL. I’ve talked about why I think you’ll inevitably abandon the NFL, however I’ve got to tell you there’s still the majority of good men in that league, and also among them is J. J. Watt. Talk about somebody that is a motivation, not just to various other athletes and also children that want to play football, yet to people favor me.

This is J. J’s quote, not mine: “Success isn’t owned. It’s leased, and also rent is due every day.” In this interwatch, J. J. goes on to say: “Eexceptionally single day someone’s coming for your project, someone’s coming for your greatness. If you’re the best, someone else desires to be the biggest. So if you’re not constantly enhancing your game, somebody else is.”

What’s even even more remarkable around this is the fact that this quote is originally from my good friend and also mentor, Rory Vaden (author of the NY Times best-selling book Take the Stairs, and also the forthcoming brand-new book Procrastinate on Purpose). It’s a shame J.J. didn’t crmodify Rory for the quote, however it make me happy that J.J. is motivated by Rory’s work-related (as I am).

The concept of paying rent everyday is so incredibly essential, and also it has actually most resonance with me. People have asked me freshly, “Hey, Jay, isn’t good that most world recognize your blog now and they know your name and also they check out your publications and things choose that?” I’ve gained to tell you folks, it absolutely is good. It’s a #FirstWorldProblem.

But do you understand just how many type of other bloggers tbelow are out there? Do you recognize exactly how many kind of other public speakers there are out there? Do you recognize exactly how many type of other authors there are out tbelow and podcasters and also video podcasters and every little thing else I’m doing?

Why am I recording a video clip ideal now in a hotel bathroom in Orlanperform when there’s the majority of various other things I can be doing? Due to the fact that every day rent is due. Eextremely day someone is trying to take away whatever it is that you’ve built for yourself, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re a ptimber or a consultant or a house painter or an insurance agent or a realtor or a flower arranger or a wedding photographer or any kind of other organization that you’re in. Whatever before you have actually, somebody else is coming for it, and rent is due every single day.

You’ve obtained to wake up eextremely morning and say, “What can I execute today to climb that mountain and stay on height of the mountain?” Tbelow are no days off. That’s not the means modern-day service functions. There’s constantly somebody coming up from the bottom trying to press you off the pedestal. It doesn’t make life simple. It doesn’t make life quiet, but that’s the reality.
