There is one question everybody wants an answer to:
How long does it take to become successful?
I get asked this a lot, and lately even more since the internet is packed with people trying to make it happen.
Nothing wrong about that, everybody has the right to be successful.
Are you ready for the answer?
I have to warn you, maybe not warn you, but let you know the answer might surprise you.
Here it is:
It takes a SECOND to become successful, yes you read that right – a second, and 10 seconds have passed since you’ve been reading this.
You see, being successful at anything is simply a decision, a decision to show up, persist and do the work and take responsibility for your own results.
Most people don’t think of it like this though, they say things like:
‘I’ll wait to see some results and then I’ll take action’
‘I need the economy to be better and then I’ll act on it’
‘I hope this is going to work’
‘I’m going to see how it goes before I take action’
These people never make it, because being successful is not about how long it takes to reach your goals, but about you deciding once and for all you will make it no matter what.
Success might take days, or weeks, or years, but it takes just one second to make the decision that you are going to achieve something in life.
Several years ago I was at the point I had to close my company due to the crisis and some not that reliable decisions I had made, I was at the phone with a friend of mine and will never forget what he said to me that day:
“My friend, you are already successful, it doesn’t matter whether you are financially where you want to be yet or not, there is no doubt sooner or later you will reach your financial goals, but you have to know you are already successful, you’ve made the decision to be huge and no matter how long it takes, you will be huge sooner or later.”
This was a moment I will never forget, because back then I though there was something really wrong with me to lose a million dollar company just like that in a few days.
Gotta say he was dead right and I’m pleased to have such friends.
Several years later I have this blog, not only this, but I have several other sites under my online company that are crushing it as well… and a few other businesses.
The point I’m trying to make here is that the second you say to yourself:
‘I’ll become successful no matter what”
…you are already successful, money will come.
