Do you Know the Secret to Success?
Sorry, I hate to tell you this but … there is NO Secret to Success. — That’s the problem. Most people who say they want to succeed, go around all their life looking for some “secret” that people like me are sure to know. They just know that if they ever learn that “secret” they will be successful, too. — Ain’t gonna happen because there ain’t any secret.
All they need to do is start “doing” something. — That’s all it takes. — Once they start “really” doing something … other than searching for the “secret” to success … whatever they are doing will expand and grow into the success for which they couldn’t find the secret.
Most of them come to the internet and they keep buying what they think are “secrets”. They never “do” anything, longer than it takes to find out they didn’t learn any secrets, they just learned how to “work” at something … instead of making them rich. Then, they go on to the next “secret,” hoping against hope that the new secret will “give” them the riches they seek (without doing anything other than knowing the “secret”).
The VAST MAJORITY of people who say they want to succeed, only want to succeed if they can make it all at once … just one sale won’t do it. They want big sales, or thousands of sales, immediately. — So, when a new opportunity only produces a few sales, they move on rather than making those few sales over and over and over and over … until those few sales have grown into thousands upon thousands of sales.
Most of them are looking for someone to help them do it, rather than looking for the tools they need to do it themselves. If you want to succeed, “do” something. Let what you are “doing” lead you onward and upward until you have the success you seek. — There are NO “secrets” to it. Many people know the facts. — Many people have the talent. — Many people have the need. — Many people have what it takes. — But … very, very few succeed because they are seeking the “secret” to success rather than doing something.
Read Steve Job’s thought…
You need a lot of passion for what you’re doing because its so hard. Without passion, any rational person would give up. So if you are not having fun doing it, if you don’t absolutely love it, you are going to give up. And that’s what happens to most people, actually.
If you look at the ones that ended up being successful in the eyes of society, often times its the ones who love what they do, so they could persevere when it got really tough. And the ones that didn’t love it, quit. Because they are sane, right?
Who would put up with this stuff if you don’t love it? So its a lot of hard work and its a lot of worrying constantly.
