The burning question that everyone has for anyone who is successful, for any life coach or for any mentor is: How do I become successful overnight? What is the quickest and easiest way to become successful? Typically, people are underwhelmed with the answer. There is no way to magically become successful overnight. Success is a journey, not a destination. You can’t put forth a little bit of effort or even max effort one night and expect it to be perfect the next day. In order to be successful, you have to apply consistency. That means everyday, max effort, and eventually, you will begin to see the results that your patience has allowed you to have.
We all search for the easy way out, we search for the quickest way to get what we want, and that answer does not exist. We are ambitious creatures with big dreams, and the work it takes to get there is always a lot. The challenges and obstacles tend to appear unbeatable or too difficult, so we give up and, again, we look for the shortcut. What we don’t realize is how rewarding it is to start getting some of those challenges knocked out and getting through the tough obstacles in life. Think about the last difficult thing that you did and how rewarding it was to get through it, or when you pushed through and/or conquered your fear. How did you feel afterwards?
You shouldn’t want it to be easy because if it were easy, you would always expect things to be easy. And when you expect everything to be easy, the things that are just a little harder, seem to be monumentally difficult. It’s the mindset that you have toward you dreams. If you want it bad enough, you’ll work your butt off to get it. You’ll do everything it takes to accomplish the dream, whether that’s less sleep, extra work or networking. When you start accomplishing the difficult things, the difficult things seem easier. Your mindset toward them are of perseverance and determination because you’ve been through worse things and your confidence goes up.
So stop looking for the easy way out and start looking forward to the challenge and beating it. Look for the obstacles and figure out the puzzle it creates and get through it because you’ll be a better and stronger person from it. Stop making excuses of why you aren’t where you want to be. Maximum effort is required. You will not become a success overnight, but you absolutely can become successful with the right mindset. What’s your excuse?
