10,000 Hours or How to Succeed in 3-5 years


Your destiny

Your destiny


 Today is the New Moon in Capricorn.  That means our thoughts will turn to success and what makes one have power in one’s job or career.  All it takes is 10,000 hours of dedication to whatever your career is.  You can master anything through sheer hard work.  You have to willing to empower yourself and be willing to put in the time and concentration.


Don’t give up.  Our 7 year old grandson said wisely to his grandfather, “We never give up in our family, do we?”  Now no one has ever said anything to this little guy.  But through his astute observation, he noticed that all the adults in our family work hard at whatever task they do.  This has become his mantra actually.  Don’t give up.   You see months after he was born, he had severe whooping cough for some time.  His vocal cords were damaged through all his coughing.  It is only after working closely with a speech pathologist for the past two years, that this little guy can speak clearly enough that we can understand him.  It is through his motivation to want to be clearly heard and understood that he doesn’t give up.






Your Life is in your own efforts.

Your Life is in your own efforts.



The research shows that it is not IQ that leads to success.  It is not opportunity or the family you were born into.  Instead,  dedication, motivation and determination or hard work that are the main factors leading to success.  We create our own opportunities by those main factors.  So empower yourself beginning today.  Set your goal.  Focus on your goal.  Don’t give up.  Your life is in your own hands!  10,000 hours of Deliberate Practice that’s all it takes according to Ericsson (1993).

You can manifest what you want in your life.  Add to your new Moon Vision Board the words, grit and determination!  Yes We Can!




Reflection Questions

1.  In what area do I want to be known to successful?

2.  Am I willing to devote the time to be successful?

3.  What skills to I have to acquire to become a success in this field?

4.  Am I willing to sacrifice other areas of my life to be successful?



Affirmation:  I intend to focus on my one main goal for 10,000 hours until I feel successful!  I intend to focus on my one main goal for the next 3 – 5 years!


The difference between great people

and everyone else

is that great people create their lives actively,

while everyone else is created by their lives,

passively waiting to see where life takes them next.

The difference between the two

is the difference between living fully and just existing.”

(Michael E. Gerber)
