People continuously fail to succeed simply because their actions aren’t congruent with their desires.
Having desires without putting in the right actions is nothing but delusional.
Everyone wants the easy way to success. Unfortunately, the truth is that to be successful, we will often need to be willing to do things that most people, including ourselves, aren’t willing to do.
Here’s 3 hard truths that you will need to accept, if you truly want to become successful.
Success Is Not 8 To 5
We are ingrained with the idea of working from 8 to 5 since young, from our schooling days till we begin our career.
Unfortunately, becoming successful requires us to fully let go of this mindset; which is solely responsible for keeping us average all these while.
Often, successful people are required to work during unconventional hours, such as at night and on weekends. Often, they are also required to sacrifice valuable time away from their loved ones.
The Path To Success Is Lonely
Only you will care about whether you succeed or not.
Imagine all the cold, lonely nights.
Don’t expect any cheerleading squads cheering for you anytime soon.
Fail, Fail, Fail
While working on your success, you will most probably encounter numerous failures.
You will witness your hard work not materializing into what you’ve expected. You will face rejections after rejections.
It is at such times that you will need to find the strength and courage to stand up, dust yourself, assess what went wrong, and go again, again, and again.
