OVERNIGHT SUCCESS

“It takes time, so be patient.”


CRAWL BEFORE YOU WALK

When it comes to success in life so many people oftentimes want to be in this place called success overnight. And when I say overnight, want to start today and millions in less than three years. Because the reality is that you may be building the next 15 – 20 years. Are tou ready to take that climb in life? And answer to that question is that most are not willing. They want to go to sleep and wake up in this place called success. Because think about, who really want to spend the next 20 years building something that does not work in the end. But there really is no other way to climb but to climb that way. Because you not only have to be good but consistent.

CONTEXT IS IMPORTANT

When you want to be somewhere in life overnight you have to put it into context. The is a such thing called overnight success, but it may take 7-10 years. Sometimes it could take you up to 15 years. That sounds like a long time to a lot of people but it really isn’t that long. Especially when you’re talking about a sustainable career. We hear at times about the person who starts today and in less than a year they are in a very comfortable lifestyle. Next, year after they massive. This occurs with famous singers. But they don’t last too long because it happens and goes due to their lack of climb. In the midst of tge storm, they are unable to bounce back from a lot of setbacks.

WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH

In a life of success you will have down moments. And when that happens, you have to know how to rebuild yourself. People who have built up can bounce back easier because they have been through the storm. The ones that struggle will start to falter. And the falter is when you see who was built for the life of success. Because being successful means failing. You will be tested at every turn in life. And without the ability to bounce back you will lose what you worked to have in life.

HIGH EXPECTATIONS-LOW OUTCOME: ARE YOU READY TO BE UPSET

“How disappointing.”


man that hurt

Ever tried to go for an opportunity and then you get hit with the big rejection? And that is when you realize that no matter how hard you work, some things are just not going to be for you. You can put your heart and soul into whatever it is you’re doing, yet at the end of the day it means nothing. Someone will get the gig over you, but what hurts the most is someone who got it and wasn’t nearly as good as you. And that’s when you find out, there are other qualities besides being good at something. This can be frustrating because I thought that is what you needed was pure talent.

are you sure ¬†you’re that good

You have this idea that you were the best, but were you? Nobody want to think that they were not that good. But in reality, you might not be that good. So you worked hard, but this person was still better. Thy might not have worked as hard either, but they were nonetheless better. Now some people observe what that person did, and then they try to figure out what they did wrong. But so many people won’t do that, they just end up not liking the person who got the role.

it’s the nature of the game

Guess what people, it is what it is. You didn’t get it, so regroup and go back at it. That is apart of the game . And that is the setbacks that comes with not getting what you want. Those that do go on to succeed are the ones that keep at it until they do get that major opportunity. The ones that don’t get the opportunity are the ones that complain about how they got passed up.

REDUNDANT LIFE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN CAREER IS TOO ROUTINE

“Same ole same ole.”


daily routine

When on the job, and you feel like it’s becoming a redundant task, switch it up. Because if you start to get that feeling of, “Oh, this again,” you’ll lose the respect for what you do. And if you’re doing something you love, you never want to lose respect. Because then you start to put out material that is garbage. So what you must do is reinvent yourself so that you are forced to take a step back and go hard again. But why do people get into a routine and it just becomes that in their lives.

monday – friday

Get up, go to work, put for a few hours, take a lunch, work some more, go home, eat, sleep; do it all again. Throughout this time you never change up what you are doing, so you become annoyed with the process. How about getting up exercising, walk to work, eat through lunch. Get everything done early, so you can head out early. Switch up the style because you will get bored quick. Or better yet, challenge yourself to bring in new methods of business to increase your odds of a raise.

what are you doing

The reason for the routine feeling may be linked to the fact that you need a new job. The current job you are working may have ran its course. And now you need a shift of focus in life. Because the job you currently have might be holding you back from doing more. And since it may be hard to find a job, it wouldn’t hurt to try your hand at an outside income to keep your mind in another direction. Even if you make a small amount of money, it’s a little bit more extra on top of your day job.
