Success requires more than desire. Success largely comes down to putting in time and effort so that when an opportunity arises, you’re ready to give it your best.

Mike Krzyzewski, the head basketball coach at Duke University, has the most wins in NCAA Division I Basketball history. Coach Krzyzewski, known to most as “Coach K”, attributed his success to his coaching philosophy:
Having the will to prepare is as important as the will to win.
Through a lot of hard work and practice, his team is able to find success when it’s game time. The work starts a long time before the whistle sounds.
There’s more to success than wanting it, and it goes far beyond having a good strategy. Always be prepared for whatever might come your way and you’ll be ready not matter when game time is. If you want to find success, focus on developing the desire for preparation. Just don’t let preparation overtake you completely.
