How is it that some people can make something into themselves and others can’t? is it Confidence for the most part? is it someone’s upbringing? or is it pure Will Power? I think I have a really good idea as to why most people in this country do not take action when it comes to becoming successful in life and I invite all of you readers to comment your thoughts on this matter. I would like to now state why I feel that only a small number of people actually can achieve the success they desire in life….so here we go!
People are afraid of the Work involved, the Responsibility, the Criticism. The value of their dream diminishes every time something negative happens and affects them to where they start to question their ability or how far they can actually go in life. Most people have those thoughts as they are just starting out in business for themselves and when they haven’t had much success in life up to this point, they have a mindset of only going so far….that has to change!
The real “Work” I speak of is the day to day education you have to give yourself. Think of it like this, as human beings we need food and water to survive, well in order to survive in the business world and make progressions in life, especially financial ones, you will have to feed your head, your brain, your noggin, everyday.
When you skip days, and you fall back into old habits of just kicking back and not doing too much, you erase the progress you gained and are now going backwards instead of forwards. When you do this, this is when the doubt creeps in, the fear gets the better of you, and what other people say to you or about you now starts to matter again to you and then you start to doubt yourself all because you haven’t built yourself up strong enough yet to keep those thoughts at a distance.
When you read, study, go to seminars, etc, you gain “deflector knowledge” this is your Power in the business world. With this power you gain confidence and you can stop a problem dead in its tracks. Let me show you one example I came up, its a bit funny but hey, it does work because I have seen it done in bars so here it is. If you are at a bar (Ladies) and a guy asks you “Whats your sign”? and you get the creeper vibe from him, well then you simply say My Sign?….”Stop Sign” and Boom, your problem goes away!
I joke in my example only to get you to pay attention to this next paragraph a bit closer. When you become a full time, life long committed student of personal growth and skills education, you then step into the shoes of those who have made it! folks listen, making a ton of money in any field takes a ton of hours, and lots of sleepless nights.
Why sleepless nights? well for one not being where I want to be in life, that’s enough to keep me up most nights, another thing could be that you are putting in your time, when most people are sleeping because they have to be on that 9 to 5 clock pattern or else they freak out, it tells you that they programmed themselves to believe that without 8 solid hours of sleep, they will not function.
Hey Newsflash everyone! you are going to lose sleep on many nights as you build any business from the ground up and not too mention, if you are 100% honest with your efforts then you will lose some sleep and exchange that loss for education, you will either get up an hour earlier or stay up a little later each night getting your knowledge.
This is the honest truth, you wanna be a someone? be making more money? then become the master of your time, and how you take care of business meaning, get a routine, set up time to be productive (no excuses) if you have to drag ass everyday to do something in your business, then you are in it for the money only and that will burn you out especially for you folks entering the world of real estate. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to be an agent, broker, flipper, or whatever, if you do not commit to your education and develop a steady work ethic and systems to go along with that then…..You’ll be crushed!
You will be crushed by people who much like me stay up all night long most nights, and I enjoy the fact that I can take extra time to learn more about many different things. I never hate the idea of just sitting down and reading chapters in a book, going to a seminar for a weekend, watching a video, attending a webinar, or whatever else I can get my hands on.
If you take your craft seriously, then you already know that what I say here is true, but for the rest of you, I hate that you have to read this blog and see that the secret’s out of the bag now! You will have to have Red eyes some nights, have bad hair days, wear the same clothes for 2 days in a row and they have wrinkles…..(SIGH) This is what success looks like off camera and behind the scenes for most successful people. Its a work ethic most will not adapt to and that ladies and gentlemen is the real reason why we have income inequality in our country.
You can’t say its education, because that is all around us, and very much free. I learned how to buy a house without any money or credit from watching youtube video’s, so you can’t say that the access to information is what is lacking, its the individual person’s choice everyday to make as to whether or not they want to move ahead in life, or work just hard enough to struggle and barely get by in this lifetime.
