I must say that 90% of the work is PERSONAL Development. Your mindset, belief systems… YUP! There, I said it. Strength of Character. Integrity. Courage. Growth. That is how you become who YOU crave to be. Unless you rise up to the challenge and work, you’ll stay where you are.
If you’re always giving up, whatever you move on to next will always find you back at the start. Duh…! Over and over, NOT growing any solid roots.
Remember the game, “Cliff Hangers” on the Price is Right?
I followed my mentors’ advice. I trusted the leaders and the process. I focused on getting there and not on what I did not yet see. I chug-a-lugged along, doing what I knew to do. I focused on working smarter and not harder. I learned and studied. And studied and learned. I implemented. Again and again.
I got to the point where I could see the seeds I had painstakingly sown start to grow. Plants began to pop up here… then there. Over and everywhere. I began to get noticed. My presence grew and grew. The right people showed up to surround me and to mentor me. Blessings came my way that I could not understand. When I asked the famous question, “Why me?” I was told over and over by leaders “Because we saw your hard work, we knew you were serious and we wanted to invest in you.”
Then one day, the harvest was here!
This is honestly my story. Let me EXPLAIN.
- Perseverance means sticking to it whether the feelings are there or not. Whether you feel like it today or NOT!
- It doesn’t matter if you are seeing results at the moment. Before you see results, you have to put in the time and the hard work.
- It doesn’t even matter if you are seeing the money! :)
Find something you are passionate about, narrow down your WHY, make it important enough that you’ll learn how to succeed at it. STOP the madness. Ask yourself, HOW MANY TIMES WILL YOU QUIT? At the mercy of the next shiny object? It takes time to learn how to succeed.
LEARN & SUCCEED AT IT.
