You want to be a success?
YES, you do?
Well let me tell you something, it doesn’t matter what you want, the only thing that matters is what you are willing to do to get it. Don’t sit there and say you want success, go out there and get it.
At the end of the day, it just comes down to three things. Handle these and you are on the fast track to success…
1. Invest in yourself first
Before you begin, become the best you. Build yourself up with the necessary traits that are required to succeed.
For instance, before an Olympic swimmer participates in the Olympics he/she puts in years of hard work.
Before he/she shines on TV, he/she puts in the work when the cameras are shut and the lights are off.
Now you’re probably not going for gold, but you’re pursuing success and there are traits that are required in order to succeed. These traits vary depending on what field you are in. For instance, if you’re in sales, educate yourself on how to sell.
If you’re a musician, educate yourself on the music business.
Whatever field you are in, invest in yourself first.
Build yourself up to be a monster.
Wield out the negative traits you have and destroy them, after you do so, replace the negative traits with positive ones.
Before anyone invests in you, you first have to invest in yourself.
Learn as much as you can about your profession. Immerse yourself in books, magazines, audio programs, whatever it may be.
A prime example of someone who did this is Mark Cuban. He would read up to four hours a day about his field and this in return gave him a competitive advantage.
Success is all about doing things that others refuse to do. And let me tell you, a lot of people are unwilling to invest in themselves so if you want to put yourself ahead of the competition, invest in yourself.
2. Expect nothing from no one
When someone wants to help you, cool…let them, but don’t walk around with your hand out.
A lot of people spend their entire time waiting for something that may never come.
These people feel as if they are obligated to favors and hand outs. If you belong to this category let me be the one to tell you, no one owes you shit. It doesn’t matter if you looked out for them in the past. The past is the past and it is done with. Don’t expect people to do things for you. If you want to succeed, you have to put in the work yourself.
How you are you going to call yourself a man when you have your hand out?
Stop waiting for the next man, build your own. After all, that’s what real men do.
3. Be willing to work for everything
The bottom line is if you want to succeed, you have to work for it.
Some dream about success, whereas others work for it.
People just don’t wake up a success, hell no; you first have to pay your dues. So get rid of the fantasy of becoming an overnight success story because it doesn’t happen like that.
Before success, comes hell.
Success is reserved for those who are willing to go the extra mile, for those who are willing to do one more rep even when their muscles are crying out in pain, for those who are willing to do what everyone else isn’t.
If you’re willing to do what the mediocre are not, you will become what the mediocre will never be…a massive success story.
I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, but I can guarantee one thing…
It will be worth it.
