The One Thing You Must Know About Success Right Now

Published

on

Almost everyone wants to succeed. However, only a few individuals succeed since most people including hard workers, disciplined folks, and big dreamers give up because of one thing. It takes long to succeed.

Recently, I wondered why it was taking long for my blog to attract a large audience. For this reason, I decided to study how long it took for most successful people to succeed, and I realized that it took a freakin long time. For example, it took around 13 years of hard work for Eminem to blow up. Eminem started rapping when he was 14, and he released his first successful and popular album, The Slim Shady LP, in 1999 when he was around 27.

Besides Eminem, it also took around 8 to 11 years of programming for Bill Gates to succeed. Bill Gates gained an interest in programming when he was around 13, and he launched Microsoft in 1975 when he was almost 20. Remember, Microsoft did not blow up immediately after its launching. It took a few more years for it to become successful.

I can give you millions of examples that prove success is a long journey. For example, Naturi Naughton started singing when she was 5, and she joined 3LW, a girl band when she was 14, and the band released an album which went platinum when Naturi was 16. Therefore, it took almost 11 years of singing for Naturi Naughton to become a successful singer

With this in mind, it’s clear that success is a long journey, and if you want to be successful, you must be willing to dedicate 5 to 15 years to hard work, consistency, discipline, anxiety, sacrifice, and perseverance. Many people give up when they realize that their success is taking too long to appear. The one thing they don’t know is that this shit takes long, and only those who are willing to persevere will succeed.

You might think 5 to 15 years of working towards your dream is a short period of time. But remember if it was a short period, everyone could have achieved their dreams. Many people give up because they can’t stand working hard, and persevering for this long. The good thing is that you and I are not ‘many people.’ We were destined for greatness, and for this reason, we will persist until we succeed.

I did not write this article to discourage you. I just wanted to be real with you. I have studied many successful people and this is what I realized. I wanted you to know that if you want to succeed, you must be in for the long haul. The good thing is that you will definitely win if you don’t give up.

That being said, are you a big dreamer, who’s in for the long haul? Are you ready to stay with me till we win? Are you ready to fight until the end? If you are ready, type YES in the comment box below, and know that you will win if you fight till the end.

No one has ever failed to succeed after working hard without giving up. SEE YOU AT THE TOP folks.

The 5 Major Stages You Must Go Through When Chasing Your Dreams

Published

on

Shows the difficulty involved in dream chasing

After studying the biographies of many successful folks, I realized that all of them went through the same stages of dream chasing regardless of their socio-economic status. I summarized these stages into five stages which I believe you’ll also go through if you are chasing your dreams.

Here are they:

Stage 1 – Idea

Here, you’ll give birth to a great idea that you’ll want to turn into reality. For instance, if you are an aspiring writer, you’ll want to turn your thoughts into a best-selling book, and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll discover a wonderful business idea which you’ll want to turn into a successful company.

Stage 2 – Enthusiasm

After discovering the idea, you’ll visualize the life you’ll live when you’ll achieve your dreams, and you’ll tell your friends and family about this life. You’ll then research on how you’ll turn your idea into reality, and you’ll start working enthusiastically because you’ll want to live your dream as soon as possible.

Stage 3 – Disappointment

After working for a period of 6 – 18 months, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll make little progress despite working hard. For instance, if you are an aspiring vlogger, you’ll realize that getting 10,000 subscribers is not easy, or if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll be disappointed because your business might fail to make profits.

Besides this, you’ll realize that dream chasing demands funding, but few people are willing to support you. Primarily, you’ll realize that it might take longer to achieve your dreams. These challenges will make you want to give up.

Most people quit chasing their dreams at this stage.

Stage 4 – Perseverance

If you really want to achieve your dreams, you’ll decide to persevere. You’ll face obstacles fearlessly, and you’ll commit yourself to overcoming them. Besides, you’ll avoid everything and everyone that might prevent you from achieving your dreams. Also, rejection, failure, and naysayers won’t stop you from working hard.

You’ll also realize that only those who persevere achieve their dreams, and you’ll work like hell. Moreover, you’ll strive to make the journey enjoyable so that you don’t give up.

Most folks make their journey enjoyable by making friends with like-minded people.

Stage 5 – Success

After working for a long period without quitting, you’ll become highly skilled, and many people will love your services/products. If you are a writer, many people will be willing to buy your books, and if you are a businessman, people will be interested in your products. You’ll then use the money you’ll earn to buy whatever you want and travel wherever you want. You’ll be so fulfilled.

Conclusion

It’s easy to dream, but difficult to achieve dreams. Most people quit when they realize they’ll have to work for a long period before they achieve their dreams. Only those who persevere succeed because they never give up. We must thus join the perseverers if we want to boost the chances of achieving our dreams.

SEE YOU AT THE TOP

THE END.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere, but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and thus continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere, focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for people to work towards their goals when everything is going well. However, most people get discouraged when the going gets tough. The ability to work when it gets tough is what sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance.

If you don’t give up you can’t fail.’ – Menna Vaan Praag, Successful Author
