Do you ever wonder why some people seem to ‘make it’ while others just seem to be stagnant? There are many factors that contribute to a person becoming successful, and achieving their goals. One of the main reasons why some people become super successful is that they follow their heart, and find something that they enjoy doing, then they engage their mind to help strategize on how to make it all work.
Many people freeze up, and watch life’s game happen while others play in the field. You might call it ‘analysis paralysis’, and believe me, we have all been guilty of it on one occasion or another.
What you have to do are these three things. Remember, sometimes mastering the basics, no matter how simplistic they may seem, is the key to your success.
Find A Template.
Try different business models in different fields. See what direction you are naturally pulled towards. Eventually, after trying different types of work, you will have a sense of what you enjoy doing. There is an old adage that states, ‘pioneering doesn’t pay’, so make sure you find something that there is a business plan template for, that allows you to add value to the market place, and get paid for it. The first couple years, you may do a lot of work that goes unpaid, or unnoticed, but keep at it. You will eventually get paid, and noticed, and the success you find will be your just reward for all the hard work you do.
Examples include Amazon drop shipping, blogging, or starting a service business.
Focus on the work you enjoy doing, and keep at it. You may encounter moments where you fail, and fall on your back. Expect this to be something that will happen. The key here is to take inventory of why you failed, and to make sure you learn the lesson in each failure before moving on to the next level of challenges.
Our greatest teacher is our last failure.
When you get distracted, or feel you haven’t got any traction, that is when you need to work the hardest. Expect that your success will happen in intervals, and eventually, those successes will all add to your big success. It is most important that who you become in the process is the person you always dreamt you would be. Work, work, and work some more. This will separate you from being just average.
Some key points to remember while you trek down your path to achievement and success: find something you like, make sure you have a template to add value to the marketplace, and get paid for it (you do have to eat), focus on achieving your goal, take inventory and actually learn from the failures, and to persist, and you will have to persist hard. Success always arrives around the next bend in the road, so keep driving.
There are times in our lives that define who we are, and moments of extreme success that showcase the fruits of our hard labor. There are also moments where when it is darkest , we truly shine. Walk on, walk hard, and walk towards your goal.
Cheers to the success to come,
