To Inspire Your Way To A Productive Week
Sometimes you need a kick in the pants and a friendly reminder that what want to achieve really is possible. So, here it is:
Success is your only option.
I wholeheartedly believe that. If you really put your mind to it and decide it’s possible, that success will ultimately come. It takes action, persistence, and consistency, but fundamentally, all you need is to decide that you are going to achieve anything and everything you want to do.
In this series weekly series, I have compiled 47 quotes from businessmen and women, public speakers, online entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, television show-runners and more. These people have achieved so much success, because not only have they decided that they are going to be successful, but they have also allowed themselves to fail. That’s one of the most important things to keep in mind. Failure is a part of achieving growth, because no one is just going to hand you the life you want. You must work for it, learn the lessons from any missteps, apply them and find any other way you can to reach your goal.
What I want you to do is find someone new from this series and learn more about them. I’ve even given you a short bio and some fun facts to start things off.
Expand your awareness and maybe even find yourself a new role model. Many of the people on this list are incredibly influential to me, and have completely changed my view of money, business, and success.
“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.” – Brian Tracy
What I Like About This Quote: Most people stay in their comfort zones their entire lives. Entire freaking lives. You see it in the people who grew up in the same small town and never ever left. I know I love to stick in my same five-mile radius (when I was in college, it was about 3 miles even), and I don’t leave it if I don’t have to.
But…I also know that I should. I need to get out more, and I need to explore where I live, just as much as I need to leave my comfort zone when it comes to starting my business.
Stretch your boundaries and do something that makes you uncomfortable, so you can grow and progress and open up new doors to truly enrich your life. As a semi-professional awkward person, I know how it can be, worrying about what people may think of you. But if you’re being authentic, your audience is going to love you, even for your quirks.
