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.
“Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.” – H. Jackson Browne Jr.
What I Like About This Quote: A lot of people stick close to those tree trunks. They live their lives in their comfort zone, instead of taking a little risk. Or even a lot of risk. It’s so important to just try and do a little more, go out on that limb and see what you can truly accomplish. You’ll never know until you try.
I’ve done it, and it’s scary as hell. It really is but you can’t let that stop you. I even quit a job with no backup plan (talk about crazy, and I also do not recommend it. Always have a plan, yo).
You never know what you’re capable of if you don’t push yourself onto that ledge and jump off it. Don’t be afraid to fall, or to fail. You can always brush yourself off, and you’ll be stronger for it. You will never learn until you fail. There is no such thing for perfection, so don’t try for it. Try for done. Try for go, rather than trying for wait until you think you’re ready.
