You have heard it all before and I know this subject has been talked to death. Why people don’t succeed has been translated by many successful people over the decades. Everyone has their own interpretation of what success is and many more have answers to why they have succeeded. Through every quote you see, every book you read and every video you watch, there is one commonality. One specific element that matters and is required no matter what. Success requires work. Despite what others might say to you, success doesn’t come easy. It is not given to lucky people. It is not given to those with money and it is most definitely not given to those who dream it.
Success takes work.
Why people don’t succeed is because they fail to work for it. It looks easy from the outside but those who have succeeded, rolled up their sleeves and grabbed a shovel. They toiled away in the trenches to create their success. Hands full of blisters, body aches and sleepless nights. They worked for it.Every successful person you have met or read about, did it with hard work. It’s that simple. Success takes work.
Success also requires you to cut out the noise.
When you put the work in others will take notice. There will be remarks, ideas, judgements, notions, advice, laughter or pessimism. Some of being said, will come from people who jealous of you. Others will say things because they truly support you and your quest for success. You need to decide what is noise and what is not. If you truly believe in what you are doing, the noise needs to be ignored. More hard work is needed to cut out the noise.
Understand that success is what you make of it.
Success is different from me to you. The beauty of success is it is strictly yours. No one can tell you different. Working hard and cutting out the noise to succeed is so important. Whether you are losing weight, wanting a promotion, looking to increase revenue, having a child, accomplishing a 5 mile run, cutting out certain foods (you get the idea), success relies on hard work. Success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. It is strictly up to you to figure out what your success is. But remember, it needs to be said again, success requires work.
Those who do not put in the work, will not succeed.
