We live in a world where you can have just about anything anytime you want. Success on the other hand needs to be earned, as you really can’t buy your way in.
This means you need to have some patience as you go about building your business from scratch. It takes time to build anything worthwhile as far as I’m concerned. I’ve always taken the “long view” when building a business, and it keeps me from getting impatient to be honest with you.
I wanted to touch on this topic today because lots of people contact me and expect success to just happen “super fast”. While success can happen quickly on occasion, lasting success – such as a highly profitable business – takes a while. Especially if you are just at the very beginning stages of your business.
The image I chose for this post best describes how success is achieved. Most people think it’s the straight line, when it’s really the crazy line that has you going forward one moment then back the next ten times over. It’s kind of mirrors ones life. A series of steps forward followed by some backtracking.
At the end of the day you do move forward and make great progress, it’s just not that straight line that you imagine it to be. This means you can’t get too worried about things not going your way all the time. The fact is they will never go your way all the time, but that doesn’t mean you are not moving forward.
You are going to learn from every single deviation from the straight line that you take. It’s all part of the process and nobody is exempt. So take my advice and just go with the flow. Wake up and go to work every single day on your business. If you do that you’ll be way ahead of all those that give up because success wasn’t in the straight line they had hoped for.
