Success is not safe

Success means stepping out of your comfort zone.  Success means trying new things until you find what works.  Success means reaching for what you want with whatever means you have available to you without hurting another person.

Sounds a little dangerous, doesn’t it?  That’s because it is.  Doing something outside the comfort zone is scary as hell sometimes.  But it is necessary if you’re going to grow as a person.  So how do you do this?

Depends on what you want to succeed at.  Basically, you look at what you have, who you know, and where you want to be.  Use the resources you have to take the steps toward your goal.

YOU are the only thing holding yourself back.  If you are always giving excuses why something didn’t work, using negative words to complain about someone else’s work simply because they’ve achieved something you haven’t, you might want to rethink what you’re doing.

Complaining about the success of another person is very negative, rude, childish.  If you have confidence in your own work, there is never a need to diss another person’s work.  Whining about someone having more or better connections than you do is simply childish.  Get off your ass and make your own connections.

If you’re not willing to work for what you want, you won’t get very far in this world.  Don’t expect to ride someone else’s coattails to happiness.  Success isn’t safe.  If you want to make something happen, you have to get busy.  Just remember to be nice about it.

  1. Everything that has been worthwhile in my life, has not been easy. It’s all taken work. From losing over 100lbs, to buying real estate, to making music. The things I’m most proud of are the things that took the effort to get. Even in relationships this is true and most people forget that. It all takes work and when things get hard you can give up or keep going. Stick with it slightly longer than what you’re comfortable with and see what happens.
