Three years ago I read the biographies of successful people every day.
To summarize, all of them came from humble beginnings.
The biggest problem, though, with trying to determine who will succeed and who won’t, in any arena in life, is the inability to measure individuals will power and fight.
The people with an insatiable will to win, and undying amounts of willpower that drove them to get better, and overcome the obvious obstacles that were in their way always succeed
Much like them, whether or not you succeed is going to come down to how many fights you have and how much willpower you have in overcoming obstacles that WILL NO DOUBT present themselves.
When I was first getting started with my online business, there was no end to the number of failures I endured, and still, do for that matter.
It took me over a year and a half of total confusion, frustration, self-doubt, and thousands of dollars wasted before I ever broke through.
By no means was it all fun and games… It sucked at times, and there were definite moments where I just wanted to quit and find a cozy place to hide.
But what’s important to realize is that those tough moments are just part of the journey and are what mold you into who you need to be as a person in order to step into success.
Almost every great champion in the sports world came from humble beginnings and went through incredible adversities in order to break through and become the champion the world knows them to be.
The only real way to guarantee success is to never quit.
Seth Godin is quite the Entrepreneur and Marketer, and one of the things he’s most famous for is talking about the subject of “failing until you succeed.”
If you begin to view failure as something that inevitably WILL HAPPEN… and instead of beating yourself up when it does, learn from it, adjust your strategy accordingly, and then proceed… it becomes a matter of “when” you’ll break through instead of “if.”
Your success is guaranteed as long as you keep yourself in the game and keep learning from your mistakes.
So today, I want to take a second and urge you to stay true to your vision… believe in your dreams… and know that you CAN accomplish anything you put your mind to with the right amount of persistence.
The fact that you’re still reading this e-mail means that you’re serious about your business and future and are willing to invest your time and energy into creating the vision you have for yourself.
Now it’s just about believing in yourself and going out and making it happen.
If you’re still reading this, know one thing: I believe in you.
Whatever’s currently going on, whatever failures you may have had, whatever mistakes you may have made, I believe in you and know from experience that if you just stick around and stay true to your dreams, amazing things will happen.
