Two Driving with John Chow post in one week? That has to be a record. Then again, I am driving the Merc more than normal this week so might as well take advantage of it.
#1 Problem Between You and Success
Have you ever wondered why you’re not as successful as you wish to be? How is it that a few people can achieve amazing results on the Internet while most people can barely pay for web hosting? It’s like there’s something standing in the way between you and success. Well, the truth of the matter is, there is something standing in your way and until you learn to deal with it, you’ll never reach your end goal.
When it all comes down to it, you are the only thing that is stopping you from achieving whatever it is your heart desires. Success is a attitude. It is not money, wealth or power. Take away the money of a successful person and he’ll have it all back and more in a few years. Give an unsuccessful person a million dollars (lottery winner) and chances are he’ll lose it all within a few years. The difference is their attitude.
The unsuccessful person blames his misfortune on outside factors – it’s the tax man’s fault, the economy is bad, prices are too high, my wife won’t let me, etc. He’ll blame everything else except the one thing that is truly keeping him down, and that one thing is staring at him in the mirror. The successful person doesn’t blame outside factors for failing. He accept failure as a requirement for success and learns from it.
They say successful people think differently than unsuccessful people. That’s not entirely true. They don’t think differently, they think opposite. An unsuccessful person hates failure. A successful person welcomes failure. An unsuccessful person works hard for money. A successful person has money work hard for him. An unsuccessful person takes. A successful person gives. An unsuccessful person think a job is safe and investments are risky. A successful person thinks a job is risky and investments are safe. The list goes on, but the point is a successful person has an opposite attitude from an unsuccessful person.
If you want to be successful, the first thing you need to change is your attitude. If you have the attitude of an unsuccessful person, then no amount of reading, couching or training is going to make your successful. Once you change your attitude, things will open up for you.
It All Come Back To You
At the end of the day, it’s not going to me or any other make money online blog that’s going to make you successful. You are the only thing standing between where you want to be and where you wish to be. Stop blaming outside factors and start to take responsibility and change your attitude to that of a successful person. You are the problem, but you are also the solution. Success begins and ends with you.
