Sometimes, I have people telling me their story…

And they tell me that I don’t understand what it is like to be them…

And I smile and think to myself…

“Honey, you just do not understand success!”

Maybe, you, leader, don’t understand success either…

Let me try to explain it to you the way I see it…

First, you the awesome entrepreneur has to make the decision to be successful…

And that looks like defeating all the following thoughts…

“I don’t think I am good enough”

“I can never seem to get ahead at the thing I really want to do”

“Does anyone even want to hear from me?”

“Do I have anything worth saying?”

“I have no spare cash so I must conserve every single penny I have to pay them horrid bills”

“I must be deluded to think that I can impact that many people and make THAT MUCH money”

“Isn’t money the root of all evil anyway, I must be greedy and sinful if I want to make money”

“God may punish me for wanting to make money so maybe, I should just stick with the job/business I don’t like”

“The world is coming to an end anyway – Why bother trying?”

And many, many MORE thoughts like this have to be defeated when you make the decision to be successful, impact people and make money…

And then if you get past all of the above, and choose to do the healing, teaching, inspiring, speaking, coaching, counselling work that you want to do, you will then have to…

  1. Come up with new ideas
  2. Put them out in the world
  3. Watch most, if not all, of them crash and burn
  4. Cry for a second (sometimes a fairly long second!)
  5. Pick yourself up, refuse to quit and get moving again
  6. Try to understand what the feedback from prospects is telling you
  7. Come up with another idea and begin again
  8. Do it over and over again
  9. Get more and more resilient and relentless
  10. Smile at those who then tell you that you are somehow different from them

And while doing all the 10 steps above, you will still be handling all the internal nonsense as well…

Except at some point, you will just decide to stop second guessing and just simply put blinkers on and do the work until you overcome or you die…

Simple.

And then you will succeed.

Because you commit yourself to the mission of impacting people and making money.

Money, in fact, will become neutral…

It is just a reward for taking responsibility for putting stuff out in the world consistently that helps people…

And so you will see that as you focus on helping more people, money just kinda comes for the ride as well…

No need to get overly emotional about it.

Set your intentions for how much you want and then let it go…

And focus on serving more peeps…

The only path that leads to failure…

Is the one where you quit.

Every other path is feedback.

Do you get it?

Fight for, deliberately design the life you are born to live…

Because you want to!
