The lottery people tell us “you have to be in it to win it!”
You name it!
And you better be sure you are in it with both feet, dug deep.
THEY say, “opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor.” I agree.
Stay in the game, even on the days you feel like you are getting no where.
I was just having a conversation yesterday with a couple of my networking friends. And I was saying how when I first started blogging, I felt like I was blogging in a black hole, like, no one was there reading them. Like, no one!
Only, that didn’t stop me. I just kept on blogging.
And now, I am happy to say I have a growing audience of people who read my blogs on a daily basis. Is it easy to keep going when you feel like it is fruitless? No!
You keep doing it anyway!
As I like to remind people, often, everyone starts at zero.
There is little use sitting on your couch, looking at your dream board, hoping and wishing your dream(s) will come true if that’s all you’re going to do. You need to take action everyday, as much as possible, to every extent you can.
You need to take action on a daily basis towards your dream.
And, be like the rest of us working on our dream; getting slammed, rejected, told no and side-lined pretty much on a weekly basis.
Remember, success can’t reach you if you aren’t in the game! I repeat that statement often.
And I will tell you this. Behind the scenes it is working. You just can’t see it.
That’s how The Universe works. You take baby steps. The Universe takes giant steps.
The thing is, and this is REALLY super important.
YOU HAVE TO SHOW UP EVERYDAY IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE!
As Michael Jordan has stated:
You stay in the game because you want to win! It’s so easy to quit. I personally know many people who threw in the towel when the “going got tough”. As it does.
Success in anything is not easy. As Tom Hank’s says:
That’s right, if it were easy, everyone would do it.
And they don’t, do they?
But, guess what? You are NOT one of them. You are YOU.
And you so have what it takes to do whatever it is you WANT.
Girl. Boy. Young. Old. In-between. Money. No money. Those are just excuses.
If you have a vision, backed with guts and determination, you are half-way there!
I can’t tell you when success will find you, but I can tell you when it won’t. When you decided the game was too hard and quit!
The secret to success is failing and then failing again even harder.
I have personally fallen more times than I can count. And yet, here I am, still in the game. Still succeeding.
Baby steps and baby gains. And I take everyone I can get, and relish it.
Stay in the game and play to win!
That’s a wrap.
