The Truth About Becoming An Overnight Success In The Home Based Business Arena
I have been involved in the work at home industry for 30+ years and I can tell you from my past experiences that a person’s success is directly related to the amount of desire, conviction and purpose that they are able to harness within themselves that will determine just how fast that person will reach their goals and ultimately have the life that many people can have but are not able to put it all together in their minds to accomplish even a small portion of their dreams.
I will tell you now that I was not one of the so called lucky ones or overnight successes. I have made enough mistakes along the way that it’s hard at times for me to even think of another person struggling to make changes in their life like the ones that I have strived for.
I believe that every person has the ability to change their lives in any way that they choose. I also realize that it can be extremely difficult to know where to start and what to start with. I’m sure that like me everyone begins with a yearning to have more peace, love, free time, money. The list is different for each person. There are people who also know they want to change but are not sure what it is they want the change to look like.
This often leads to a person being discouraged with life and cursing the people that have had success and succeeded in creating a life worthy of envy. I learned some time back not to curse the very thing that I am seeking.
I often like to remind anyone that may enjoy disrespecting a person for creating a life for themselves that most people envy that everyone has the same opportunity. Most people are just not willing to put in the time and effort to make their lives what it could be.
It reminds me how a young person approaching the age of 16 in the US has this tremendous anticipation of receiving their driver’s license. They are willing to do almost anything to get it and the sooner the better. I know because I was one of them. Getting that license meant more than my next breath. It’s amazing how we put so much effort into something’s that later in life seems to fade away.
The problem I think is that we continue this cycle of moving on to the next big thing without giving serious consideration as to the affect it will have in and on our lives. I recently read a quote that read “If you don’t change direction you just might end up where you’re going.”
I have become a great proponent of self development (my change in direction) over the years and for a person that barley graduated high school beginning this journey was about as far out there for me as I thought it could get. I did not do well for many years when it came to sticking to something. There were always distractions and other things to do and I always kept putting things off.
I like a lot of other people, discouraged with the results of my lackluster performance would always find something to blame. I’m sure you know where I’m going with this. I soon realized that the reason my life was the way it was has been directly related to the choices that I had made earlier in life. These choices will sneak up on you later in life like a thief in the night.
I began purchasing self development (awareness) books, tapes (1980s) and later full programs that cost up $500.00. As it turned out even though I wasted so much time letting those products sit on the shelf while I became distracted with other things I would one day have to look this guy in the mirror straight in the eyes and say its time.
I believe that no matter what a person’s failures have been in the past those failures are just the learning tools that have guided many people to greatness if only in their own circle of influence. If any of this sounds eerily familiar maybe it’s your time to get back on track with your life change plans.
You may want to keep this in mind. You will be following a the path of many successful people because just like you and me it has taken many failures for those successful people, the one’s that many think are gifted or lucky to get to where they are now.
All you need to do is start. Books like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill or the Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz are great places to start. The internet gives you a vast selection to choose from and the best part is these books won’t break the bank but they just might get you started on the path to the life that you have been thinking about for a long time.
If you’re one of those folks who just can’t seem to bring themselves to pick up a book there are many audio programs on the market that you can pick up and listen to in your car or while you’re doing you’re your daily thing around the house. Whatever you do don’t ever give up and get that good information flowing into your mind on a daily basis.
Once I got a clear vision of what it was I wanted I needed to feed my mind everyday to keep me in the game. Now it is something that if I miss a day I feel as if I’ve missed a meal. This is what will make the difference in your ability to create success in your life.
Believe this. I resisted this for years and it’s something that I’m going to have to live with but by coming out here and expressing myself I hope that I would help you in achieving your goals whatever they may be sooner and with a lot less regret.
I can tell you this with certainty that when you break through to the other you, the you that realizes success isn’t just for the other guy but for those who choose a path most ignore. It isn’t easy at first but the end result will be a life that you can be very proud of.
It takes a certain level of commitment to the future. To something you cannot yet see or touch. To a way of life many people find easier to just dream about or chat with friends about but never act on. There is a certain part of us that knows we can achieve what we want but developing a plan and executing that plan, doing what it takes to see it through seems to be just past the grip of most people.
I know what it’s like to break through to the other you. I’ve done it and I can tell you that it is the most liberating thing that you can experience. After years of struggle to finally get to the point that brings with it the realization that you are going to make it. Keep that light in you burning bright and don’t let the dream stealers rob you of your future.
Do something today, right now, if only in your mind. Make the decision that today is the day for you to change it all and like an artist, begin to paint the picture in your mind of the life you want and then act on it. Remember, nothing happens without action.
