This question gets asked often, what is that elusive thing we call success? What does it take to actually be successful? Is it something you are born with? is it something someone is gifted with? Or is it about having a special set up of circumstances one grew up in? or is it all about knowing the right people ? is it in the DNA?
There’s all these different theories about success that crosses our minds when we ask this question to ourselves, really they are just excuses the mind comes up with to justify where he / she is at in life. You must command your life.
All those statement above on what people mistakenly think what success is, is exactly what success is not. Success is about using the human will power which we all have, and directing it towards particular goal or mission, until achievement or completion.
The keyword here is UNTIL
Meaning you go towards that goal until you make it, as human being we all have this awful useless fear of not looking stupid, but in the name of progress you gotta look stupid & foolish sometimes. Success is about going towards that dream or vision and moving through objections & failures without the loss of enthusiasm.
Success to me is a state of mind at the end of the day, it is the ability to continue to make 100% effort to your target no matter what it is about being completely committed to one’s goals in life so much so that you take massive action where success is inevitable. And then continually setting higher goals that far surpass your current peers and you reach a realm of changing your outer reality completely. This means cutting ties with old relationship and establishing new ties with new people that operate at the same wavelength as you. And your wavelength is someone that is driven and motivated to become the best that there is.
Success is that elusive factor that we are all after, but most people are not willing to go for it. They are too afraid to fail and they settle and justify their shit existence. Life is about progress and moving forward with full force and commitment. It is not about settling for something or someone, it is about operating on all cylinders on all levels, pistons firing off and you create so much momentum that others have to agree that you are a force to reckon with and that you operate on a level that others simply have to yield to your power and might. Success is about building that human fortitude of mind and spirit, it is about aligning the subconscious to become the strongest version of yourself and projecting that strong version of self out into the world an have others drawn to your energy and vitality and excitement. I am a force to be reckon with.
I recently started working with a Troy Garage Door Repair company and started to give them consultation on how to grow their business and make it into a large operation. This company was sort of staying at the same level year after year, and plateaued in sales. I am the force that came in and I must shake things up and wake everyone up inside. I am a force because day to day I am pushing myself to perform at a higher level than I did yesterday. I came in and pushed these guys so hard that they were forced to either accept and move forward with big business decision or they would have to contradict everything they stand for to deny what I was requesting them to do.
The problem most business owners have is they are not setting goals. They are just going by the motions and living in reaction instead of asserting their dreams & vision into the world. Most business owners stagnate and they leave it up to a larger force to come in and take all the power away from them. If you are not working towards your dreams & goals, someone will come take it away from you.
