Your success in life and in business really is largely dependent upon your willingness to do the hard things. Let’s face it, hard things are hard and most of us would prefer to stay on ‘easy street’ , but if you’re really serious about making money you know, deep down inside that’s not how things work.
In order to achieve your goals, you will most likely have to do things that seem unimaginable, feel uncomfortable or appear impossible.
Now, I’m not talking about anything too wild, crazy or illegal….buutttt you will have to embrace varying levels of hard things. Things like:
- Getting over your imposter syndrome long enough to ask for the sale;
- Believing in yourself enough to finally get in front of a camera and talk about who you are, what you do and how you serve people;
- Ignoring the ‘nay-sayers’ and the voices in your own head that seem hell bent on keeping you stuck;
- Showing up to people in real life;
I know it can be a bit scary. It may seem too hard and some days you try but you just can’t bring yourself to get it done, but let me tell you something pretty exciting:
That thing that seems too difficult, too daunting, too scary
……..gets easier with time! I promise you that.
I’m living proof of this. The first time I had to show up to an international interview I had poor lighting, poor audio, poor planning……but I made it. Don’t believe me, check it out here!!
That was so many years ago but you know what? I kept at it…..kept going and it became easier and more natural. Now, I’m like salt….I’m in EVERYTHING!!!!
Here’s the truth about hard things: they usher us to the next level of greatness. The hard things are the achievements you have to unlock and I will not deny it completely sucks sometimes, but once you do it, you will be rewarded with a flood of renewed energy and confidence…..ready for the next stage.
I know from past hard things, that this is true. In fact, my entrepreneurial journey can be viewed as a series of hard things, sewn together by lengthy periods of, previously unimaginable and seemingly impossible, creativity, confidence and success: Getting featured in Forbes….TWICE; Getting featured in an international best seller, winning Publicist of the Year…..I could go on!
So get excited about your hard things, in fact, rejoice because if you do it, if you take those scary, daunting steps, you will simultaneously be inviting in your next level of achievement. Whether it’s prosperity, profit or peace, you’re after, I can tell you with certainty that it’s on the other side of your hard thing.
