So, what does this mean? Well, the best thing I get from ShoeMoney’s frustration is that anyone can be successful if they stick to it and don’t give up. As he said, their “ship will come in” at some point. Does it happen overnight? Not necessarily. I listened the other day to the testimonial of a client we’ve worked with that didn’t make a single penny her entire FIRST YEAR in business. But, guess how much money she made the second year…over $100,000. Do you think she did this by sitting there feeling sorry for herself? Do you think the money all of a sudden came falling out of the sky? Do you think she stopped doing the things she’d been taught and marking her education as a loss? NO, NO, NO! None of these things happened.
There’s a reason why we go through a qualification process – we really do look for motivated people who are ready to make changes in their lives. We really do see success every day – in our own businesses and in the businesses of many of our clients. But, as one of my favorite success statements says:
“The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work.” – Mark Twain
You have to stay the course and not look back wondering “What if” or the Success Train may pass you by.
