Everyone Wants Money to be FAST!
That says a lot about success doesn’t it.
People want success and they want it fast (and with minimal work). If this wasn’t the case, people would not buy lottery tickets and they definitely wouldn’t be sucked into products that claim you will make $10,000 overnight. You people that want money fast are keeping gurus, scammers, and bloodsuckers in business!
Anything that one wants to be FAST is typically SLOW in nature.
Money included.This is the reality of business. Regardless of the business. You hear success stories but you never hear the ‘back stories”. These are what ultimately lead to success.
Steve Jobs working tireless hours from his garage and begging people to buy his product. Making tough decisions, facing failure often, and 30 years later creating a business that is a billion dollar one.
Our success was slow as well. I personally started my journey young. I started reading investment papers at the age of 13. I worked my butt of doing extensive labour jobs that showed me what I didn't want to do for the rest of my life. When I started out, I had to beg to borrow my girlfriends credit card to start my Overture PPC account (now Adcenter).
Carson and I started Wealthy Affiliate after an "ad hoc" conversation and it started as a site offering "keyword lists". 7 years later we are a global education platform for the Internet Business community. :)
These are the stories people fail to remember or don't want to remember. There is a journey and a cumulative build up to success. It can and will happen, but there is nothing that is FAST about it.
The road to success dims only when there are no lights shining on it. You are the “lights” by the way. If there is nobody leading the way for YOUR success, then the chances of it happening are slim.
Success is not easy. If it was everyone would be doing it.
That is the logic with any sort of achievement. Tying your shoe for the first time is tough and so is riding your own bike. But you made the effort to learn the bunny rabbit song (shoes) and fell a bunch of times on your bike before you ever became good at it.
Where did we lose you? Why are you treating this elusive thing called money with so much haste. Why should money be easy? Why should it just “happen”? Where are you getting this crazy idea from?
NOBODY is going to do it for you!
One thing that I have learned over the years being in business is that nobody is going to create success for you, in fact, people tend to try to leech you if you have created any level of success.
YOU are responsible for your own success. Yes, there are faciltators and mentors along the way, but they are not going to do the work, they are not always going to be there to pick you up when you fall, and they definitely are not going to press the buttons for you!
Take some onus.
Success is not fast and it never will be. Success is really awesome when you achieve it though...it is easy to reproduce once you have achieved it, and it is far more realistic and more gratifying to share your success with others than to constantly share your “dreams” of winning the lottery.Nothing that is fast is worth working for. Work on the slow path and the journey will take you places you never thought were imaginable.
