Get on the Treadmill With Me and You’re Getting Off First

This is a wonderful video by Will Smith. About two minutes and fifty seconds (2:50) into the clip he says: “you might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, but if we get on the treadmill together, there are two things, you’re getting off first or I’m going to die.”

This is the kind of attitude that I have adapted in relation to my online ventures. I believe that this is how we must be if we are going to really succeed on the Internet. I’ve said it before, we must run faster, harder and longer than our competition.

Take note though, when Mike Tyson bit off a chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear, the whole world thought it was worse than a low blow.

Don’t ever compromise good professional business practices or your integrity because of your anger. Play by the rules by following good business etiquette. Most behavior that is perceived as disrespectful, discourteous or abrasive is unintentional, and could have been avoided by practicing good manners or etiquette.

Work hard, have fun and never let them see you sweat, especially, if you’re on the treadmill with your competition.

Will Smith put it this way: “while the other guys sleeping, I’m working. While the other guy’s eating, I’m working.”

If we are going to succeed at being at the top of our chosen niche, we must study, work hard and better ourselves every single day and enjoy every moment of our lives.
