Practice makes the master. By doing your best you become a master. Everything you have ever learned, you learned through repetition. You learned to write, to drive, and even to walk by repetition. You are a master of speaking your language because you practiced. Action is what makes the difference.
Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book)
Re-read the quote above.
It is hard to escape the brilliant truth of the 10,000 hour rule. You do not get better at much of anything without doing that thing, whatever that thing is, over and over and over and over again.
And – and this is encouraging, but also quite a warning – you will do what you repeatedly do.
If you are encouraging others over and over, you will (continue to) be encouraging others over and over.
If you are rude to others over and over, you will (continue to) be rude to others over and over.
Everything you have learned, you learned through repetition. Everything. Including the way you treat others.
This is a profound truth.
Think about it…
