How Great Is Your Drive For Success?

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.

    They say the fear of success is often as strong as the fear of failure. What do you think?
    I also believe that sometimes a person sees ‘success’ as the end of the road? Then what? Have to start all over from scratch and not many people want to do that so they sort of keep themselves from success.

      I appreciate the very thoughtful comment. I can relate to the fear of success because until recently I would have the same fear. As I got closer to the success I was seeking I tended to back off. As I look back I know it had to do with fear. It sometimes still happens, but I am learning to “accept” the success that comes my way :)
