Have you ever looked at someone who is successful in business or in life and thought they were simply lucky? Many people view those who are more successful than they are as having some kind of advantage or luck, but actually the opposite is usually true. Successful people often have had great obstacles they had to overcome in order to achieve the success they now enjoy.
Life Is An Obstacle Course
Nobody skates through life problem free. We all have obstacles in our lives that we must overcome. It may be some kind of disablity, such as dyslexia, or it may be a fear, such as the fear of public speaking. It may be some kind of unforseen circumstance such as a divorce or job loss.
No matter what your personal obstacle is, you need to gather your strength and determine that you won’t let it beat you. You need to decide that you will rise above it – no matter what it takes. If you let it stop you, you’ll never achieve your dreams.
Successful people don’t allow circumstances to overwhelm them. While they may feel overwhelmed or emotional about a situation for a time, they know they can’t let it destroy them. They know that at some point, and preferably sooner rather than later, they need to move on from it and continue working toward their goals.
Time Is Precious – Go For It!
Another misperception people have about the wildly successful is that they have some kind of education or special expertise that has placed them where they are. The truth is that often these people learn the ropes as they go. They have a goal, and they don’t sit around waiting until they know all they need to before they start. They just begin.
Time is precious for all of us, and if you waste time waiting for the perfect moment to begin striving for your goals you’ll find that moment never arrives. There will always be just one more thing you’ll need to do before you’re ready.
The Real Secret Of Success
The real secret of exceptional success isn’t found in eduction or knowledge or expertise. It isn’t found in some magical formula or luck or advantage either. The real secret to success is found in the willingness to do things other people won’t do.
Most people talk rather than act. They don’t really want to do anything. It’s easier to wish and complain than it is to make a change.
The majority of people will never write a booklet, although most would tell you they have a great idea for a book. It’s fair to assume they’ll poo poo the idea of a booklet, but they won’t write a book either. It will forever remain an unreachable dream for them.
Of the handful of people who do actually write a booklet, most will never get beyond the writing stage. The manuscript will sit because they don’t want to do what it takes to get to the next phase.
Success in the booklet business is a progression of unending events. It’s like an adventure. You can’t stop. You must continue moving forward. Do what others won’t do. Writing that booklet is a great place to begin.
Don’t worry about what you don’t know. You’ll discover once you get started that you don’t need to know it all. You just need to know enough to get you through this moment so you can progress to the next one. And, once you’re in the moment you’ll find that the last moment prepared you for this one.
Do whatever it takes. You have what you need. Just begin!
To your riches!
