I was talking to my friend who runs a tree service business in Macomb, MI the other day about success and business. What makes someone successful and what makes others not make it life?
Some believe that certain people were born to be entrepreneurs while others think its destiny, or its in the DNA but again there are plenty of millionaires that started out from nothing, came from broken homes but still made it? The one thing that separates from the pack is that you have to be willing to do what other people aren't doing so you can have the things that other people don't have.
Its this separation from the pack, from the herd mentality that is required to become an entrepreneur, and most people fail this step miserably. Because it is much more comfortable to do what others are doing, it is much more "feel good" to stay with others and go to parties with your peers and be friends with others that don't challenge you or that accept you no matter what. You feel more safe and accepted, however its a lot more challenging for you to find people that are above you, that are going somewhere in life, that work harder than you and that challenge your places of inadequacy. Sometimes Confront them head on.
To become successful is to always seek the discomforts and unless your psychotic you will never naturally seek for discomforts, we repel away from those experiences. So what makes us go seek out the pain and discomfort is we have to have a strong enough WHY
Why do you want to become successful, why do you want to become a millionaire, why do you want to achieve the things you say you want. What is the end goal, what is it that you are seeking in life. When you are driven by a strong why or a higher purpose, we enter a zone where we are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.
This one thing or one teaching can save you literally thousands of hours wasted it can give you clarity in the midst of everyone going into chaos and confusion. My purpose is to become the shinning oasis, the guiding leader of positivity in the world, to stay positive, centered, clear & aware in the midst of chaos.
When everyone doubts the world, you believe, you have thickness & back bone because you already went through all the negativity and even the darkest hours of the soul, you have faced them head on, so you have mental fortitude and strength that most people lack.
So becoming successful is about you taking responsibility and committed 100% to it, its about doing what other people are unwilling to do today so you can have the life other people dream about tomorrow. Its about rolling up our sleeves and putting in the work. Its about doing thing that masses aren't doing.
My friend that runs his business at http://www.treeservicemacomb.com/
Also agrees with me 100% about success, this is someone that started his own business at 21 and has put some serious hours into his business while his peers around him were out partying & drinking, he stayed in and continued to work on his business. He is someone I look up to because he is a hard worker and genuine. he understands the human condition of always seeking comforts while he always pushes himself to grow his tree service business and takes risks that most people our age of 26 wouldn't dare taking like investing $100K into new equipment.
