Renowned coaches are often asked what the difference is between the best athletes and everyone else. In other words, “What do really successful people do that most people don’t?” Of course, there are the typical responses of genetics, luck, and talent.
But there’s an added element most don’t think of…It is the will to be relentless and resilient in the Grind. It’s the ability to handle the boredom of training every day and doing the same lifts, drills and film review over and over again that separates the professionals from the amateurs.
Think about it this way – it’s not that the best athletes have some insane, boundless passion or willpower others don’t; it can even be the exact opposite. They can feel the same boredom and lack of motivation everyone else experiences and aren’t immune to the sometimes tedious heft of the daily grind.
What sets them apart is their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, with the repetition, and
Good reasons to hate the holidays
Who doesn’t love the holidays? Oh, plenty of people. Maybe you have a tense relationship with your family. Or you like your family, but they live far away, and you’ll be spending the holidays solo. Perhaps you’ve suffered a loss, and the season is stirring up painful memories.
Some people loathe the consumerism and gift-grabbing excess. Even those who like celebrating can get stressed out about blowing their budget or living up to others’ expectations of jolliness. And if you’re an introvert, holiday gatherings and work parties can feel like torture.
“There are all sorts of ways to feel bad this time of year,” says Dr. Bea. “And if you’re not feeling merry, all the forced merriment around you can make you feel even worse by comparison.”
Try to remember that there are others in your shoes. “We’re all in a battle with our own brains and trying to do the best we can,” Dr. Bea says.

What does it mean to connect the dots, and how do you even detect the dots you want to connect?
Connect the dots originated from a picture game linking numbered dots in order, without lifting your writing instrument, to form a drawing. Today, it has evolved into a colloquialism about discovering a pattern and linking different ideas and experiences. These connections exist in the choices you make to solve problems, address day-to-day challenges, and find solutions for yourself and your teams.
In life and work, detecting the essential dots requires the ability to zoom in on and pan out from the things that define an issue. This means you need to be able to see both the minute details and the big picture.
Just like in the original game, you need to be able to stay in touch with moving to the next dot by zooming in on the task at hand and, at the same time, keep a clear, concise picture of the other issues, risks and resources related to the task, ensuring you don’t stray. Specifical

Talent in today’s business environment is the catalyst of success. This is proven time and again by those companies that rank recruiting and talent as their number one priority, year in and year out. Companies like Apple, Disney, Nike and Google all rank a commitment to hiring top talent as their number 1 priority. These organizations are also all on Fortune’s list of Most Admired Companies.

Think of the most successful employees you’ve ever worked with, or the individuals you’ve mentored who excelled, or the leaders you’ve studied who seem to achieve every goal they set for themselves. Undoubtedly, a few common threads woven into their lives are the strength to discover why they failed, the skill to use that learning in the future to succeed, and the sheer will to get back on the horse and try again.
But exactly what is it that leads one person to try again when others just give up?
Industrial and organizational psychologists have spent decades researching this very subject. Angela Duckworth, assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and her research focuses on a personality trait she calls “grit.” She defines grit as “sticking with things over the very long term until you master them.” She writes that “the gritty individual approaches achievement as a marathon; his or her advantage is stamina.”

We cannot treat our way out of the rising cancer caseload. The only solution is a full-scale defense, so that nobody suffers the disease in the first place.
By Madeline Drexler
In the next few years, cancer will become the leading cause of death in the United States. Later in this century, it is likely to be the top cause of death worldwide. The shift marks a dramatic epidemiological transition: the first time in history that cancer will reign as humankind’s number-one killer.
It’s a good news/bad news story. Cancer is primarily a disease of aging, and the dubiously good news is that we are living long enough to experience its ravages. Cancer’s new ranking also reflects public health’s impressive gains against infectious disease, which held the top spot until the last century, and against heart disease, the current number one.
The bad news is that cancer continues to bring pain and sorrow wherever it strikes. Siddhartha Mukherjee titled his magisterial biography of cancer T

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has”
Charles Darwin is often quoted AND is more often misquoted. The most frequent transgression is, “Only the strong survive.” Fact is, there is no accurate record of him ever saying or writing it.
Here is what Darwin likely said about strength and survival, but even this might be most accurately attributed to a Louisiana State University business professor named Leon C. Megginson and his interpretations of Darwin’s work:
It is not the strongest of the species that survives,
nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

Those who know the story of David versus Goliath understand it is about an underdog – a much smaller, weaker opponent – who takes on a champion of greater strength and size and wins. It is not in the winning we find a moral, but in the HOW. Just how could David slay a giant bully named Goliath?
David was incapable of meeting Goliath’s strength and power, but he was capable of adjusting to
