Stop Waiting For Success.
Are you lazy? Do you think you shouldn’t have to work for things?
Are you waiting for somebody else to drop success in your lap?
How long will you wait before you realise that’s not going to happen? As nice as that would be, the chances are slim to zero. So, where does that leave you?
Well, you could sit and wait, dreaming vaguely of how nice it would be to be, do or have what you want. If dreaming is enough for you, great! You carry on. But don’t whine in 15 years time when you feel dissatisfied.
If there is something you really want, you will have to get off your ass and do something about it. Sorry.
I’ve written articles, and a download, available here on this website (free, if you’d like one!), which talk you through a step-by-step process to maximise your chances of success. I’m not going to rehash that now. Before I give you a quick overview of the steps required, remember that working hard to achieve your goal won’t guarantee you achieve it, but you will stand a much greater chance than if you wait for it to come to you!
It doesn’t matter if your success looks like 50% more profit for your business, 3 dress sizes smaller, a marathon trained for and run or to spend an extra 2 hours with your family and friends each week. It’s all success, and the formula is the same. This is a very simplified version, but sometimes simple is good: –
- What is it exactly that you want?
- Feel passionate about it!
- Set an achievable timescale. When do you want it?
- Get help/resources if you need them.
- Have a plan to deal with the things that could stop you, including yourself sabotaging it.
- Take action.
- Stay motivated.
- Review. Tweak if required. Celebrate the little successes along the way.
- Succeed. You’ve achieved what you set out to!
The big difference between waiting for success, and going out to get it is action. If you don’t take action, consistently, nothing will happen!
However big or small your dream is, get off your ass and go get it! Good luck. I wish you success.
