One of the things that leave clues wherever it happens is success, there’s no secret to how people become successful, every successful person has something they do that is definitely known to everyone including those who have none.
You don’t need to kill yourself to know what works, just ask those doing something how they do their business and make it work. Every person today knows someone who is rich but they would rather stay broke than ask how rich people become rich. They would rather judge others from afar instead of approaching them and asking them how they got to the top.
This is why most of you who read my articles especially if we have different mindsets find it challenging to learn something, I am a person who has no jealousy for people doing better than me, so that’s why I praise people mostly because I believe if they can do it, I too can do it. It’s only the time difference that matters.
If today you are doing nothing, you have no business, whatsoever, you aren’t working, no job – meaning you are just a living being white out purpose; start asking people questions. You don’t even need a degree to ask how someone made it in life, you don’t need a degree to ask how someone runs a business or makes things work.
Don’t be selfish and pray for people’s downfalls instead learn from them and become like or more than them.
Do something today and be about it. Don’t listen to what people have to say. Some would definitely question how you managing, and others would simply hate and say, “you aren’t going anywhere “, pay them no mind.
That’s the mindset of a broke, negative person, they wish others failure. Their heart is filled with jealousy because of laziness.
My advice is that; start learning, start asking questions, start knowing what people do to earn a living, someone has built, someone somewhere is driving without much education. Some started from 0 and today they are at 100, ask them what they did. If you don’t ask questions you never grow, you never progress in life, instead, you will be hating people who are progressing and think they are boasting simply because your own denial and negativity within you have failed you.
Samuel Clemens, known by his pen name Mark Twain once said
He who asks a question may be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn’t ask a question remains a fool forever.
Ask, ask, ask; Ask now, ask tomorrow, just ask. Never stop learning, even from those you feel are below you. You can learn something from them, put ideas together and use them for your own growth.
The imagination is the workshop of the soul, where are shaped all the plans for individual achievement. Before you can build anything worthwhile, you must first create it in your mind. Your mind isn’t constrained by physical limitations or boundaries.
In the workshop of your mind, you can visualize things that have never been. It’s said that Albert Einstein visualized how the universe might look if he were riding astride a beam of light through infinity, then he worked out the mathematics to support this theory of relativity.
You can use the power of your imagination to visualize solutions to difficult problems, develop new ideas, and see yourself achieving the goals you have set for yourself.
Everyone loses someday, what’s worse about that is to lose and be okay with it – not planning for anything that will actually turn a loss into a win.
Here is how you could be a loser and not realize it:
1. You are okay with indecision. No decision = No action.
2. You use God as a crutch. (God will work it out)
3. You use the devil as an excuse. (The devil made me do it)
4. You talk about victimhood more than empowerment
5. You give up if something is too hard or complicated.
6. You are likely to blame rather than take responsibility.
7. You don’t have any clearly defined goals.
There are so many lines to write there. As a matter of fact, if you are a loser, you are in good company. Losers by far outnumber winners LOL! The question is what do you earn from being one? Clearly nothing.
What we actually know is:
The constancy of purpose is the first principle of success. It is critical to your success that you have a well-thought-out plan for your life that stick with it regardless of what others may say and the obstacles you encounter.
There will always be fault finders and those who attempt to persuade you that your goals aren’t worth the effort you put into achieving them. I tell you, those people won’t go far, and will be the first to ask for your help after you have passed them by.
Virtually, every successful person has considered giving up at some point in his or her struggle to reach the top. And many breakthroughs occurred soon after those same people rededicated themselves to their purpose.
There is no known obstacle that cannot be overcome by a person who has the constancy of purpose, a positive mental attitude, and the discipline and willpower to succeed.
The key takeaways
Negative thoughts will come but let them sit in your soul. As often as you need to, open your mouth and speak life over yourself, over your next move, over your open doors.
It’s not always easy, sometimes we get tired; and if you have to cry it out, keep walking, keep speaking life as you keep asking how successful people made it and keep applying pressure.
Never underestimate the power of asking questions.
