I will start with a question where the answer may be seem obvious. However, some may have to think about whether this is seriously true. I ask you now…do you want to be successful?
The answer “of course” is echoing from all sides of my computer speakers and bouncing off the walls. I would answer the same way. Of course I want to be successful, and I know you do too. The problem is that our actions don’t always prove it. Many people want success in internet marketing, sales, or any job or any activity. However, they don’t put in the work, faith, and dedication to make it happen.
The next question is, if people want success so much then why won’t they do those things to get them there? I believe there are several reasons. These are based on study, and from my own experience. Some people don’t do what it takes simply because of fear. They are afraid to step outside of their comfort zones. Others are unsure of exactly what they want, so there is no focus if any steps are being taken at all. Others doubt themselves or their abilities, and procrastinate as a result.
I am guilty of all of the above. I have learned, and this knowledge has helped me avoid some of those pitfalls. I was believing that I was doing what I had to do to succeed and reach some of the elusive goals I have. That was until I watched an inspirational video of someone else who reached his dreams and goals. The work ethic and drive of this professional basketball player puts me to shame. However, it was a wake up call in two ways. It showed me that I have to go above and beyond what I have been doing, and showed me that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.
When I began this blog, it was many of these components I had in mind. Success is a state of mind, and if that is developed correctly, great things can be accomplished. Along with that, it is also necessary to do what it takes, and then even more to make it happen. Some call it massive action. If you are craving success in any area of your life, I recommend you check out this video and let it inspire you. It certainly did for me.
The other day, I was “pep-talked”. That’s right. I was provided some guided inspiration that I was made to dance and make a difference in this world, but it wasn’t going to happen by just sitting there.
The ironic thing is that this speech was from a kid. He claims he’s not that smart because he’s just a kid. In a way he’s right. However, there was far too much wisdom in this message to let go. The main point is that everyone has something to give and make this world better. Yet too many of us instead worry about our failures and how far we are from our goals.
Is that you? I don’t blame you. I’ve been there. If you’re reading this, you are most likely searching for ways to build your online presence and reach your internet marketing goals. Like the kid, I’m no expert yet. I’ve fallen short, and at times (many more than one) I have been ready and willing to give up. Every time I get to that point, it seems like someone reminds me that I need to persist. I CAN be successful if I believe it and if I am willing to keep going. As each day goes by, I begin reaping more of the benefits of this advice.
I now pass this reminder to you. You CAN succeed. It’s matter of having faith and knowing that you can achieve anything you put your mind to. It’s also a matter of not quitting, regardless of how much or little you’ve accomplished so far.
Take the lessons from the kid. If you’re at the point of giving up, know that you can create something that makes the world awesome. You can make a real difference if you believe you can, and you can reach the success you crave. You don’t have to let the obstacles prevent you from doing so. Knowing this, I leave you with the question…what is that something?
Check out the video from the kid…
