The real secret to success

This topic is such an important one for any budding entrepreneur that I almost can’t believe I haven’t covered it before. 

It goes without saying that the internet has brought with it massive opportunity for aspiring business owners. You can now start building something amazing with just your laptop. 

But…

It also means that we are surrounded by stories of apparent overnight success. We hear about online programs that bring in substantial cash in the first few hours of release or mailing lists with thousands of followers. And that’s a problem.

We live in a world where we have an expectation of instant - we want things to happen right now. And it just doesn’t work like that. Sure, there are the ‘lucky’ ones who literally do become a success overnight but for most of us, it takes a lot of determination and hard work. 

And that’s the real secret to success….

Clarity + Hard Work

I heard this phrase when I watched this interview on the Good Life Project. It is so true. 

You need to be really clear on what you want to do, what you are passionate about and want to change in the world. 

Then you need to get off your ass and make it happen. That’s it. 

If you want more subscribers to your mailing list, start giving the ones you have something of real value. Don’t just churn out recycled content on your blog, write posts that are engaging and inspiring. 

Build a tribe. 

And know that for most of us, this can take a while.

But it absolutely is possible.
