So you want to be succesful? First ask yourself when you consider yourself as ‘succesful’.
Is it when u have Financial independence? Or when u have a good running company? Or maybe u consider yourself succesfull when ur happy in life.
See, lets be honest here. Most people think having financial independence means ur succesfull to others. But you don’t get to see someones backstory, you think Steve Jobs woke up and just had this spark in his head and suddenly there was Apple? You think Beyonce came where she is at now by just singing some nice quotes? No. Don’t point your finger at someone you look up to and say: ‘You were lucky, you were BORN with this gift, this idea’.
No It took education, work, financial & mental investment to get there. And this mental part is the most important of them all.. Let me explain it to you.
I have a dream, what’s yours?
You have a dream right? Everybody has one. Some people want to develop musles, get fit. Others want to be a great web developer. Or maybe you are trying to start your own company. But let me tell you a little secret here.
As I mentioned in one of my motivation blogs, you gotta take full controll.
NO ONE told you it would be easy, if they did, they lied.
Currently there are 7,53 billion people on this planet. The amount of people that live their life to the fullest lays around 1%. This is why people always read books, story’s or watch videos about these people. By doing this you create this ‘perfect life’ idea.
There is nothing wrong with that though. But most people stop putting in the work from there on and start dreaming, hoping.
All of us suck in the beginning. Let me take myself as a example. Currently I write blogs using WordPress. I aim to teach, motivate & help people in life but also course related.
I started this with zero knowledge about blogs/WordPress. But I’ve started! Start with writing blogs and one day that bad writing will evolve into some better writing. Start with doing push ups and one day that ‘impossible’ amount of push ups will become possible.
You can change your life, you can grow immensely in the next few years, you can make your dreams come true. You can build a financial wall around your family nothing can get through. You can become a healthy, you can become powerful. Why not you?
Why not you?
The only valid reason I can think of is that you are not putting in the work. You gotta be consistent because it may not work 4, 6 months or even 2 years from now. Come up with a plan and stick to it. ‘But people on social media laugh at me about my idea‘. F*ck that, you think you remember that anonymous person when ur 60 years old living your life to the fullest? Stop making excuses, you hear it alot but it’s true.
With enough action any goal can be achieved. There is no secret, no cheatcode, just the work.
What do you consider as succesfull? Let me and others know in the comments.
