Why is it that successful people all have the same message, think about it!
All successful people believe in themselves! Trust your abilities, just because validation is not right in front of you doesn’t mean its not there, the dots will connect sometime, it might take six month or 6 years but eventually it all comes together.
Its taken me 6 years to get where I am and im not even close to achieving the things I want to. Does that stop me, no, do I give up, never, does it motivate me to push harder, hell yes. You see if I had everything in life I wanted right now, I wouldn’t be able to handle it. Lets use lotto winners as examples, some average guy working an average job, earning an average income takes a quick pick lotto ticket and ends up winning millions. He cant handle it, 70% of people who come across large sums of money become broke within the next 7 years, and thats a fact! Now why does this happen, have you ever wondered what you would do with that kind of money??
The problem with progressing to quickly is your mind and your ability don’t progress over night, the process of becoming successful takes time, we cant fast track our minds. The journey teaches more then the end result, it’s never been about the end result but rather how you got there. Understand that and put 110% into creating something epic.
I heard a quote the other day that really sat with me – “The greatest of people that have ever been in society were never a version of someone else, they were themselves, people are employed in ways that don’t fully tap into everything they do best in life!”
If it burns in your heart, pay attention to it. When you find what you really want to do, you will find a way to make it happen. Now this may sound cheesy or lame but the only way to be truly satisfied is to love what you do.
2 years ago I almost quit photography, I almost threw in the towel, I hit rock bottom. Things were just against me, I was failing, nothing was working out, I owed people money etc. Something just said to me enough is enough I cant give up, I picked myself up and said yes to making it happen, trust your ability!
Here’s the thing i’m getting at, I didn’t quit!
Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever……
