I have determined that many people just aren't willing to do what it takes to succeed. I can give the same advice to a group of people with the same problem, a few of them will take the information and get a result. While others will sit around and tell me why it won't work for them. They will insert every dumb little excuse they can think of, fail then blame me.
People fail because they want to fail. If they wanted to succeed they would try everything in their power to make it happen. In short they would actually try.
And I don't just mean give a a shot, I mean bust ass and make it work. I hate when people say well I'll give it a shot and see what happens, to me this is the sound of them sealing their own coffin.
When I started my first business I didn't say, well I'll give this a shot and see what happens. I said "I'M GONNA MAKE THIS WORK" and that's exactly what I did.
It has always intrigued me why the same information when implemented by my small private clients will result in a 100% success rate, then when I go public with the information and teach it in a more public setting the actual implementation rate is so small.
The people who actually do what is taught get a result, they usually need so critiques and mentoring to clean up what they are doing, but then the rest never do anything.
These are the people who are always searching and never finding, these are the people who claim to know everything you are saying but aren't making any money.
To know and not to do is not to know” Chinese philosopher Wang Yang-ming (1472-1529)
These are the people who are on dozens of email lists, these are the people who buy WSO after WSO.
These are professional biz opp seekers and as Mark Cuban calls them "wantrepreneurs"
These are people who think they want success, but aren't willing to do what it takes. I hear some of the lamest excuses from day to day.
Everyone is placing self imposed limitations on themselves. If they really wanted to succeed they would find the time, they would find the money, they would keep pushing forward every time something goes wrong.
We are all powerful human beings and can over come anything.
DO a google search for "best rags to riches stories" and just look at all the people who have overcome great challenges and obstacles to acheive great things.
Your excuses are invalid, if you are not succeeding it is because you are deciding to fail.
Ask yourself these questions:
Have I ever really tried?
Did I fail because I quit to early, or quit at all?
How successful could I have been if I hadn't quit?
Am I really willing to do whatever it takes to succeed?
Am I ready to stop making excuses and make it work?
Sit down and give your self an honest evaluation.
Realize that you are good enough, and that even if you suck at something now, you can always work to improve and get better.
Do you think Michael Jordan just woke up the greatest basketball player in the world? Or do you think he spent hours a day in a gym taking hundreds of jump shots a day to get better.
Think about the greatest athletes and Olympians do you think they were just born that good? No they all sucked at first.
But after years of focused dedication they become the best.
Who do you think spends more time in the pool swimming back and forth, Michael Phelps or Eric Moussambani
Even Eric Moussambani didn't quit as he swam the worlds worst swim race.
If you suck at something work around the clock to get better. If you fail figure out why fix it and keep going.
If you are afraid to do something kick that fear in the ass, because it is preventing you from who you are destined to become.
Decide to be successful, "success is a decision away"
If you want to be successful then be successful.
