So many people get caught up in their fears and “What Ifs.” The people who really succeed are the ones who take risks, they embrace risk. There is an old saying “No Risk, No Reward.” This is absolutely true. There will always be problems, there will never be a perfect time and someone will always be there doubting you. Don’t listen to those people, listen to your heart, listen to this voice inside of you saying JUMP! Many people simply won’t be successful in life because they are scared. Living in fear will get you nowhere. You don’t have to go all out and quit your job but you do have to be willing to go above and beyond. If you really want something you will sacrifice for it. That means not wasting time with TV and video games or whatever your favorite method of time consumption is. It means going to work, taking care of your family and then staying up late at night working on your dreams. You may be a little tired in the morning but if you’re really in pursuit of your dreams, that’s your drive. That’s what wakes you up this morning and pushes you to crank out your day at work so you can get home and get back to building your dream. A dream is just a dream until you dedicate time and effort to it. If you’re not willing to put in the work, you’re not meant to have it.
It’s easy to say “oh I have this going on, so now isn’t a good time” or “this just happened, so now isn’t a good time. THERE IS NEVER GOING TO BE A PERFECT TIME. Talking about it, thinking about it, PROCRASTINATING about it will get you nowhere. You’re going to stay in that endless cycle. Building your own business isn’t easy and it isn’t for everyone. Be willing to work and learn and you will be amazed at what you can achieve. I’ve hit so many roadblocks on my path but I figure out ways over, under and around them. The feeling you get after you knock down another obstacle is great! Often times we build things up in our head and make them out to be a much bigger thing than they are. Then once we conquer them, you have that “Oh, that wasn’t so bad” moment. Never be afraid to fail or look like a failure to others. Failing is part of the learning process. Those stuck in the rat race will always have a comment about you failing that one time, but they are failing EVERY day. You’re learning every day. One easy way to avoid looking like a failure to people is not bragging about what you’re working on until AFTER you’ve achieved it. So many people want to fake it for the internet and gain some sort of social status. The people on your social media don’t pay your bills, if they did you wouldn’t be looking to build a business. When it comes down to it, just go for it, fuck what people think!
