Light Your Fire with the Secret to Success
Hello, fellow winner.
Today is the beginning of recognizing that fire inside you and letting it burn bright.
As a full time entrepreneur, I need to keep disciplined, stay motivated, take care of my energy, and be comfortable taking risks 100% of the time. All of which have become second nature to me, and have brought me much success.
There’s another thing that has also brought me much success. Actually, it’s the only thing that guarantees I will succeed.
It’s a thing that most people are afraid of, a thing that people run away from as fast as they can, a thing that keeps people from discovering their true potential. That thing is…
Yes, you read that right. Failure is the ONLY thing that is guaranteed to bring YOU success.
Not only is failure to be embraced, but it’s necessary in order to stay disciplined, motivated, and keep your eye on the prize. In the words of Henry Ford,
"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently."
The Two Letter Word
Still with me? Good.
Now that you have learned that FAILURE, is really your best friend, I will talk about the other pesky word that terrifies most. That word is…
It’s the word that keeps most from asking for what they want.
It’s not news that NO is a dreaded word for many, but want me to tell you a secret?
NO is necessary for growth. NO is also your best friend.
Let me tell you about how I process this beautiful word when I hear it at meetings, when I’m brainstorming with colleagues, or when I’m pitching my ideas. Let it inspire you to change the way you feel about at it and learn to love it.
A WINNERS ANALOGY
Think of the word NO as a gas station. Think of yourself as a Car.
Stopping at a gas station is annoying and not exciting in the least, BUT it’s necessary.
It’s necessary, because it FUELS your car.
Start repeating to yourself: The word NO…gives me FUEL.
From this moment on, don’t let NO scare you, instead embrace it and realize that a NO is necessary as it provides you with FUEL to continue achieving your goals.
Yes, You Can. Period.
