“Why Do I Succeed?
I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not. I will fight against the odds. I will sacrifice. I am not shackled by fear, insecurity, or doubt. I feel those emotions drink them in and then swallow them away to the blackness of hell. I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride. Pride consumes the weak-kills their heart from within. If I fall, I will get up. If I am beaten, I will return. I will never stop getting better. I will never give up, ever.
That is why I succeed.” – Anonymous
A lot of people look at the successful as if they are lucky. A lot of people look at the successful as if they are the rare ones, they are the ones who had something in them that was special, they had something great within them.
A lot of people who think like this are mediocre.
The truth of the matter is the people who have succeeded before you are more similar to you than they are different. They had aspirations and they had dreams, just like you. However where they differed from you was in the execution stage.
You see, when successful people make up their mind to do something, they stick with it. They see it through.
The mediocre on the other hand, will jump from one task to task, without mastering anything. This is the road to mediocrity and a very dull life.
On the other hand, the successful devote their life to their dreams.
So the bottom line is they are no different from you or me. They weren’t the chosen ones; they didn’t have something in them that you don’t have, NO.
All they did was they made their mind up and they stopped at nothing less of success. Failure was not an option.
They were either going to succeed or they were going to die trying. There was no in between.
The reason why they became great and really successful was because they thought they were great and really successful before they saw any sign of success.
As a result, they carried themselves with a certain glow.
This glow took them to the top.
It’s important to realize that success is not god given. Just because you’re a good person doesn’t mean you are going to succeed. Just because you are kind and generous towards others doesn’t mean anything.
Success is objective.
Its true luck has a lot to do with succeeding in life. There are many stories where someone was in the right spot at the right time and made it big.
However more times than not, success is a matter of will. Success is a matter of saying, enough is enough and you are going to commit yourself to the results you desire and you aren’t going to stop until you die or until you succeed.
This is what it comes down to.
More times than not, it comes down to who is willing to fight for the prize. It comes down to hunger and desire. It doesn’t come down to who is the smartest or who is the best looking, NO. It comes down to consistency. It comes down to doing what it takes to succeed.
There are three types of people who make up this world.
1. Those who make it happen
2. Those who watch it happen
3. Those who wonder what happened
Your job is to belong to the first group if you want to see your dreams unfold before you.
If you want to succeed, enough is enough. If you’re serious about succeeding in life, you know what you have to do.
It’s time to leave the BS behind and take massive action. Yes, it’s scary. Yes, it might not work out, but who cares. This is the biggest step you’ll ever take. Put yourself out there in the midst of adversity and scrutiny. Who cares, because in the end we are all going to die, your job is to just live. So live for today and embrace each new day as a new opportunity to create the life of your dreams.
If you are filled with smiles and great memories when you are on your death bed, you are a success. That is the true test of life. So the question remains, are you willing to do what it takes to create a successful life or are you just going to sit back and keep on waiting for something which may never occur?
