THE SECRET TO SUCCESS?
Well I came back from San Francisco couple of days ago and as much as I love to travel, this time I'm glad to be back home. I caught a cold while I was there and I'm in some real need of rest and relaxation now.
I just wanted to say a quick hello and check in with you. I've been also thinking a lot about success while traveling. A lot of people are often looking for big juicy secrets to success. Do you believe there is such a thing as a secret to success? I don't.
I truly believe that there really is no secret. The truth is, in order to achieve success, one must simply get started. It's simple, but not easy. If that sounds contradictory, here's what I mean:
If you want to be successful, you must START working on what you want to achieve NOW. Not later, not next month, not next year, but now. It doesn't matter if you take small steps, as long as you take any steps towards your goals, that's what really matters. It's great to be a doer, not just a dreamer because it's the doers that really accomplish big things.
That's the simple part. Now the hard part is staying consistent and persevering despite of how slow your progress seems to be. This is where a lot of entrepreneurs trip up. They think that if they don't see huge results immediately, it must be a sign to give up.
But that isn't so. Just think of all those hugely successful people in the world. Do you think that they hit success instantly? Nope. Not even close. They all went through trials and errors,made lots of mistakes in the process, failed a bunch of times and finally succeeded. That's how it typically goes for anyone in business. You must be able to last through the tough parts of building a business.
However, once you get there, you won't regret anything you've been through. So keep that in mind while you're growing your business and never give up. Keep learning, be open to infinite possibilities and chive on!
