It’s not enough to show up (at work, in our relationships, or for our goals). Attendance alone won’t turn the tide. No one aced the exam because they showed up.
Instead, we must show up with unbridled enthusiasm. If 90 percent of success is showing up, enthusiasm, perhaps then, is the other 10 percent.
Having enthusiasm is easier said than done, of course. We all “go through the motions” at times and question our motivation. Is this goal still important to me? Is this what I want?
You don't set out to build a wall.
You don't say 'I'm going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that's ever been built.'
You don't start there.
You say, 'I'm going to lay this brick perfectly as a brick can be laid.'
You do that every single day. And soon you will have a wall.

The corridor principle experiment was conducted in a study done by Robert Ronstadt back in the 1980s. He explained the principle as the mere act of starting a venture in which enables entrepreneurs to see other opportunities they could neither see nor take advantage of until they had started their initial venture.
The difference between those who succeeded in the entrepreneurial field was because they took the chance to launch themselves even without the guarantee of success.
