Some people are so busy making lists, crossing items off, adding new thoughts, the process repeats over and over without a trial run.
Do you even have an idea of what success means to you? Do you find yourself wanting to try everything to become successful and lose sight of the focus on the road you need to take? Sometimes, people sabotage themselves on purpose. Yeah. The thought of success frightens them and they put up roadblocks to fail. Success is a new field and people get scared. Some believe they cannot compete.
Success is scary. There is a lot of responsibility attached to putting oneself out there for ALL the world to see. Privacy is hard to maintain. People want to know all about you. And then, what comes next? Whatever profession you are in, you still have to keep going forward. As a writer, will the next book be another blockbuster? What happens if it flops? As a painter, will your next painting be better than the one that brought you fame?
Success is not so much what you accomplish and how much you prevail in your efforts to move forward. We have so much we want to share with the world, but there are some time we need to reign in and take the ‘small baby steps,’ we know are out there. People race to the top, slide back down, get in the middle, and hit the top again and again. Why?
Perseverance is the key to success. The ability to tell yourself….I AM WORTH IT…. and hit the highway running. This is your opportunity to shine. Yeah, when I hit rock bottom or close to it? YES. Quiter’s quit. Winners keep plodding, sending out new material, standing in front of a crowd, and never showing a bit of fear? HARD?
This is what makes you a success. You keep hitting and hitting. You take opportunities to improve, improve yourself. You learn. You try. You trod the extra mile.
This is a boost to all of you. FAILURE IS NOT CHOICE. SUCCESS DEMANDS ALL OF YOU. GO FOR EVERYTHING. KEEP PLUGGING … AND SUCCESS WILL BE THERE FOR ALL OF YOU.
Happy Writing. Happy Everyday.
