Everyone wants the fairy tales. Everyone wants to be held and told that it is going to be okay and that they are warm and safe. However, on your rise to the top it just doesn’t work like that. You are going to encounter many failures on your journey to actualizing whatever your version of success looks like. No matter what, you have to keep moving forward. Continue to place one foot in front of the other. That’s all it takes. Keep getting up and keep fighting it out.
I have a huge issue with people who don’t make any changes, yet continue to complain. If you are satisfied in life and desire nothing, that’s great. I am happy for you. I really am. However, most people aren’t satisfied with where they are in life. People like us are driven and still looking to achieve big things.
I make money in many ways, but just take DFS for example (if you have no clue what that is, read the ultimate daily fantasy sports betting guide). If I did what most guys do and read all day while never actually taking action and changing my lineup around, I wouldn’t be where I am today. However, because I have decided to continually put in the work, I have continued to reap results.
Bottom line, quit playing mental games and trying to build a fairy tale in your head. It isn’t going to pan out like that. The sooner you realize it, the more success you will achieve.
