“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” Calvin Coolidge
Do you know, that success is not all about having a strong burning desire? You can have a strong desire to building a big business empire that makes you a billionaire, but if you cannot persist on it, you will switch and jump from ideas to ideas, shift from industry into another industry just because you’re so motivated, but you fail to produce any result.
One of the most important keys to success is determination and persistence. And this is exactly what makes most people fail to achieve what they desire in life.
Do you know, that most people fail because they give up? And not so much that they give up because they fail?
You have to stick to your goals and keep on pushing yourself, be determined and persist until you create the result you want.
In this information age, people are getting lazy and wanted to earn millions with just a few clicks. They are looking for shortcut to success instead of working hard and persist until they achieve what they want.
I have heard many stories where the younger generation trying to start a business selling clothes online, but after a few months, they start selling mobile phones. And after putting in a little effort but they can’t see the return, they give up and try to make money with Google Adsense. And not long after that, they discover Forex and feel that they have a strong inkling that Forex is the ultimate weapon to make their first million.
There is no shortcut to success! And there is no best way to success either!
In every industry and in every market, there are people who are making a lot of money and there are even more people give up, fail to produce the result and would like to jump to the next big thing.
So there is no perfect business or business that will make you the most money. Every field and every industry can make you a fortune, depending on whether you want to make it or not.
Therefore, if you’re still thinking which industry you should go into, just follow your heart and go into doing something that you are passionate in. And then, set big goals and never deviate from the direction of your goals.
The most difficult part that you have to overcome is when you have taken massive action, there aren’t any result showing. What you need to do is to review your strategies, and continue to take more action until you produce the outcomes you desire.
What You Need To Do When You Feel Like Giving Up
It can be very simple, what you need to do is to reflect what you have done along the way and remind yourself about the purpose and reason you pursue the goal in the beginning. Ask yourself, “Why am I want to achieve that goal?”
Another tip is by appreciating how much you have accomplished instead of looking at how far it is that you still need to go on. Look back at your accomplishments, they will inspire and motivate you to go further. This is why you need to celebrate all the small wins. And in fact, it is all the small wins that will bring you the big success you want.
Dream BIG, start SMALL, and act NOW!
