Preparing For Your Success

When is the best time to prepare for your success in life?

What's that you say? " I have to actually have to prepare for it? Doesn't success just happen?"

No. It doesn't. If you want to improve your life you have to take the action.

An article by Jim Rohn who is a well-known motivational speaker said:

"Here's the great challenge of life. You can have more than you've got because you can become more than you are.

I have found that income seldom will exceed your own personal development. Once in a while income takes a lucky jump, but unless you grow out to where it is, it will go back to where you are.

Somebody once said if you take all the money in the world and divided it among everyone equally, it would soon be back in the same pockets.

However, you can have more because you can become more. Unless you change how you are, you will always have what you've got.

In order to have more, you have to become more."

Are You Prepared To Take A Risk?

Doing things you haven't done before can be risky, however if you don't take any risks you will live a very unfulfilling life.

My Friend Mike

Mike has worked 12 years for a large corporation. Very secure, lots of perks and he received a reasonable income. He had a job for life.

The only drawback, after a few years - it was boring. He was miserable. He was wasting his life away. The organisation was big enough that he could transfer to different positions within the company - which he did do so. However, the culture of the company was the same wherever he transferred to. The environment wasn't stimulating and Mike found he was not stretching himself. He was existing and not living. He was too comfortable.

Mike was a reader of self-help books and also attended numerous personal development courses, so he knew he could enhance his life dramatically if he would just make a decision and take action.

The Company Package

Mike finally took the plunge last year and left. He ended up becoming a partner in his friend's restaurant.

With no experience in this field he embarked on a huge learning curve.

He went from a boring yet very cushy 9.00 - 5.00 p.m. job with a regular income to working 9.00 a.m. - 9.00 p.m. seven days a week with barely any income. However, Mike was on fire. He was excited. He was living life (or so he thought). That was 10 months ago.

I caught up with him this week and he told me he is selling his share of the partnership. He realised that there was more to running a business of your own than working for someone else. The pressure on him had taken it's toll. He had been getting heart palpitations and couldn't sleep. The stress of it all was too much.

The Moral To The Story

Mike had leapt out of his comfort zone and took a risk.

Although in this instance, he found out it was too big a price to pay, he wouldn't have known whether or not this was going to work out until he tried it. Of course he had done all his due diligence beforehand, however that's still no guarantee that he had made the right decision.

What Mike has learned from his experience, is that there is a world of opportunity out there and sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. But you'll never know unless you give it a go.

He's still excited about the possibilities for his future and is grateful that he had the guts to take action.

The Final Word

If you want to become more or do more with your life this year, what investment are you prepared to make in your own self?

What resources, courses, support do you need so that you can be excited about getting out of bed in the morning?

Are you healthy enough to jump out of bed in the morning? Are you healthy enough to cope with your life?

If you want to change then make sure you take action today!
