Big successes don’t happen over night. I resent media outlets who use click bait titles about overnight successes, because that’s hardly ever the case. Especially in industries such as the talent industry or in business it can be hard to function as a start up when you see all these “success stories” popping up in every which direction.
Well guess what? Behind success stories there is hours of hard work, failures, insecurities, everything you have inside of you. Things don’t happen overnight. As a start up company, beginning blogger, and human being this can be a hard pill for me to swallow.
Constantly through social media I see successful people living lives of adventures and lavish and I look at my own with 4-6 hours of sleep a night, to do lists everywhere and feeling like I’m never doing enough and wonder, what on earth am I doing wrong?
Then I think, I’ve been working consistently for about a year. In the year I have achieved over 400 blog subscribers, started my own business, I have an awesome internship, and overall I am happy. This past year a lot has started and most of my projects are still in their beginning phase. Don’t compare your beginnings to someone else’s middle! You have to start somewhere and if you don’t start now, then when will you? The sooner you start the sooner progress will be seen. Invest in a planner, and make measurable progress.
For this week, and your whole life, you need to focus on a timeline. Give yourself reasonable deadlines to achieve your goals. Be relentless in your pursuit of the goal. If you put an equal amount of effort in everyday, (no matter how small or how large) then the result will have to be forthcoming (it’s basic logic people). By the law of logic if you put a bigger effort you should see a bigger result, but it still may not be immediate. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean 12 hours a day of work, the quote says reasonable! One small, organized, thoughtful step every day can lead to bigger quicker success then the person who is frantically leaping without thinking about their footing. Your dreams and by extension you, don’t have off days just days where you do a little more or a little less.
Stay hungry people,
