So you want success, huh? How badly do you want it? Do you really want it or just “kind of” want it? I ask because everyone says they want to be successful but very few are willing to do what is necessary to achieve it. So if you’re one of the few who is brave enough to be successful…read on.
Here it goes…if you are going to “work”, you might as well work hard and spend your time on successful efforts.
There it is…that’s the secret. Success comes from effort. It can really be that simple.
Think about it…if you have the skill set, whatever you do you will have some level of success. And the longer you do your “job”, the more success you will have (theoretically). Therefore, the longer you “work” the more successful you will become. It’s all about time…and most people aren’t willing to put in the time. That’s the secret.
Studies show that the average person only “works” 4 hours a day. At that rate it will take you X number of days to become successful (and when I say work, I mean actually doing something that is beneficial to the bottom line of your business). If you work 8 hours a day you will become successful twice as fast. How about if you work 10 hours a day? Twelve hours a day?
Think about it…the more time you put in the sooner you will experience success.
The very successful owner of Cog Hill golf course in suburban Chicago once stated out loud “I always figured if I work eight hours a day, I’ll make one man’s pay. If I worked 16 hours a day, you make two (man’s pay). The harder I worked the luckier I got.”
So decide how quickly you want to become successful and do the work necessary to achieve that success.
And one final thought…eat lunch at your desk. Unless you are having a true business lunch you should be eating at your desk working on or plotting your next move.
Be aware…the top performers in any business spend a lot of time working…so stop complaining, wipe your nose and get to work. Spending the money you make from your effort is fun.
