Whether in sport or business, we often refer to high
performers as “The One Percent.” People generally associate
this seemingly mythical term with an inborn gift that is either
physical, such as genetic fiber type, or related to cognitive
ability, such as IQ. However, in reality, the concept of the one
percent is truly a mindset 먹튀검증.
Over the course of my coaching career, I have seen
some of the most gifted athletes fail to make the team or
advance their career. They’ve possessed the physical traits, but
have lacked something bigger: an ability to maintain both
vision and the consistent work ethic needed to produce further
growth. I often tell my athletes, “Never sacrifice what you want
most for what you want at the moment.” This is the rule of
discipline, and it is violated often as a result of human nature.
A lack of discipline means choosing enjoyment in the short
term over what truly needs to be done to achieve one’s goal.
This short-lived happiness ironically takes us away from our
main goal, and ultimately results in self-sabotage.
I have observed countless such cases of self-sabotage. It
shows in the athlete who wants to make the team, but stays up
all night playing video games; the athlete who wants to earn a
scholarship to play college football, but cuts class in high
school. It shows in the general population client who wants to
look better in a bathing suit, but goes to happy hour every
These examples are everywhere in our surroundings,
yet most people do not recognize that they are sabotaging
themselves. It is easier to blame others and assume that
someone else is luckier or more naturally gifted than we have
been, that their success owes to uncontrollable factors. But the
truth of the matter is that it merely requires consistency of
vision, effort, and values. Approaching life with the knowledge
that one can be successful with this type of consistent
discipline is a mindset that can make everyone a “one
percenter.” It is not a genetic gift, and it is not luck. It is a
conscious daily decision that influences our thoughts and
behaviors, a choice that we all have to make.
Have you ever noticed yourself engaging in self-sabotage?
Have you ever felt that others have success or
opportunities based on luck?
What steps can you take today to avoid “sacrificing
what you want most for what you want at the moment?
