Do you want to know the truth about success?
“Get to 6 figures in your first 3 months of business!”
“A million dollar business is easy!”
We’ve all heard the claims, seen the testimonials, and bought into the hype.
And we sit wondering, “What’s WRONG with me that I can’t do that?”
I’m going to tell you some real truth about success because I actually want you to SUCCEED. If you know what’s really behind it, and you take the steps, you can get where you want to go. IF you know all there is to it.
The truth is, 90% of very willing, eager, and hopeful entrepreneurs don’t make it past their first year. I believe that the success rate can far exceed 10% if people were more educated about how business really works.
Let’s first explore…why only 10%? What I’ve found is this…
In the first year, well – EVERYTHING is new. We’re taught to avoid being a novice at all costs, because our egos want to appear that we know what we’re doing. Because there is so much to learn, and it feels uncomfortable, 90% of people just give up and won’t stick it out.
Here’s an example:
If you want to be a speaker, chances are…you may suck for your first few talks. However, if you want it enough and you’re driven to keep going, you ask questions, get some training, and practice – then lo and behold – you’re going to be an awesome speaker. It’s that simple.
Making money as an entrepreneur requires some skills. There’s marketing. Sales conversations. Technology. Relationship building. The list goes on and on. Growing a business will pull you out of your comfort zone in 25 different directions at once. But – when you take one step at a time, breathe, ask questions, get help, and just DO IT…at some point you will achieve mastery. (And, then you’ll be on to the next new and exciting thing!)
Being an entrepreneur is a spiritual, mental, and emotional bootcamp. It will train you to be at your best, know who you are, and embrace the unknown more than just about anything you’ll ever do.
If you’re reading this, I strongly encourage you to keep going. It does get easier. And, this life comes with a confidence and belief in yourself that’s based on actual, real life experience. It’s VERY worth it. I promise. You can be one of the 10% if you simply decide right now that you aren’t giving up.
That’s what every successful person you know has in common. There was no “plan b”. They just made it work. It’s not because they are smarter, prettier, richer, or more popular. It’s because they kept going. YOU can do that too. Let today be the day you decide.
