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.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
What I Like About This Quote: You can hope for something all you want, but if you don’t make a plan to make it happen, it’s not going to. Life isn’t going to just hand you what you want, just because you wish really hard. That fantastic website and course series isn’t going to suddenly manifest itself because you have an awesome idea that you don’t act on. You MUST take action.
Do something new.
Where do you start? Make a plan. Set your goals. Work hard every day, in what little spare time you may or may not have, and get after it. Take what you know and learn the things you don’t. Don’t just wish for the perfect life, because there’s a good chance you wouldn’t recognize the perfection if it was just handed to you. You have to work for it, to know that it’s perfect.
