Do You Really Want Success? Then Fight For It!

Watch This Inspiring Video:

Success has nothing to do with luck. Success to me is when opportunity meets hard work. For years I have been a big believer in working harder than everyone around me. Some my competitors (even peers) used to believe I worked so hard to make “Brownie Points.” Nothing could be further from the truth. I have always worked harder than others around me so that I could produce more than they did. Now if you don’t have that competitive spirit – then you will never be as successful as you claim you want to be.

Setting back in your easy chair and watching life pass you by will get you nowhere. Jump in with both feet and make a difference in everything you do – both personally and professionally. You have to want it more than others want it. You have to fight for it more than others fight for it and you must believe in it more than others believe in it.

How many people get up every day and just go through the motions and ponder why they are not more successful than they currently are? What have you done today to get better? What have you done this week to make more money? What have you done this month to live a fuller life?

Just like the video clip we shared with you today – you have to want to be as successful as you want to breathe fresh air!

Stay Committed to Your Goals!

Through the every day daily tasks and hurried lifestyles, we easily forget about goals we have in place and stray from them quite often.

What are your goals? Whether work related or personal related, we all must get back on the same page and get committed again to our goals. We are getting into the autumn season, which means we are rounding to the end of the year. If your goals have kind of gone to the way side - then think realistically and stick to one goal that you can complete and achieve by the end of the year.

Here are some ways to stay fully committed to our goals:

-Take Pride in the Small Steps: The little accomplishments towards your goals are just as important, remember that and be proud of them...

-Persistence is Key: Nothing will happen if you don't take a jab at it, so small or large, stay committed and focused and even write your goals/thoughts down in a journal.

-You were made to achieve things!: Believe in yourself and make it happen! It feels so good when you're finished.

-Surround yourself with good, encouraging people: By doing this, you will remain positive, happy, and determined to stay committed to these goals.

-Put an encouraging quote up on your wall: "I Got This!"

-Have fun! and remember nothing with value comes easy...

If you haven't set any goals in a long time, because you "don't even have time to say the word goal" - I challenge you to break out of your paradigm and set a goal for yourself - the results are invigorating.

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”
-Peter Drucker
