Have you ever heard people say the phrase "It is really hard to do that!" about a task, subject or accomplishment they never even tried of doing?
I hear it everyday. Last time was yesterday when a colleague of mine said:
"It is really hard to market a book."
My follow up question was:
"Have you ever done it?"
She said no. This happens everyday to a lot of people. They tell someone in their surrounding about a goal or dream and get the standard phrase "It is really hard to do that!" from a person that doesn't know shit (pardon my French) about the subject.
This is why today I want to tell you to be very, very careful to which person you are listening to. Nothing is really impossible, it could be difficult and take som time but with the right strategy and execution you could do it.
Remember though that you need the right persons around you.
Through the course of my lifetime people has always laughed at me when I told them about my goals:
When no one believed in me, I believed in myself and found other people that had done what I wanted to do. I followed their way and dared to go after what I want. I don't tell you this to brag or to show off, I simply want to share with you that if I can, I know you can too!
Let me give you a few tips on how to dare to go after what you really want even when people tells you: "It is really hard to do that!"
5 Tips To Accomplish Your Goals
Tip #1: Choose your tribe
Do you think you can become a World Champion of anything by hanging out with people who doesn't have ambition? Iron sharpens iron so make sure to hang out with people that is doing what you want to be doing in 5-10 years from now. Also find people around you that support you and makes you stronger not weaker.
Tip #2: Work on yourself
You don't need money to build your empire. The only thing you need right now is determination and a positive attitude. Work on yourself so you became strong mentally.
Tip #3: Have patience
Did you know that Coca Cola only sold 25 bottles the first year in business? That didn't stop them, the kept going and the rest is history. You can usually get what you want but you need to have patience because many times it takes longer than you have expected.
Tip #4: The feeling of wanting to give up is a good sign
When you feel like giving up, remember that it is a sign. It is a good sign which means that this is now most people would have given up, but not you. It is simply a weeding out process, every time you feel like this someone else is quitting. Don't let it be you!
Tip #5: Learn more
Knowledge is the single most important thing for success. The more you know about your area the bigger chances for success. Always take time to learn and remember that you can learn something from anyone, just keep you eyes open and be willing to learn.
