Hello. Welcome back! It’s nice to have you here. Were you intrigued by the title? I guess. Just keep on reading and you will learn what is that element most people are afraid of. What people don’t see behind success is something you might not want to have on top of what you’re having right now.
What People Don’t See Behind Success
Have you ever encountered accomplishing something, and people will tell you these things, “I wish I had that chance” or “I wish I were you“? If yes, you probably can relate. Maybe, we also became those people at one point. In general, successful people are seen going through doors of opportunities and success. They are fearless. When opportunity knocks, they acknowledge it: create strategies and grab! If they win, they lead. If they lose, they learn.
What people only see are the results. What people don’t see behind success is the deep level of responsibility these successful people had to carry for that opportunity. I know a lot of people who are afraid of responsibilities, and they directly admit it. Fearing responsibilities can have a lot of causes: they lack courage, fear of failure, and/or hate inconvenience. Convenience makes people lazy in some ways. People who favor convenience all the time never really grow.
Choose to take charge
Let’s have some examples. I don’t have a child, but we have nine cats – all rescued. They teach us to be responsible: scoop their poops, feed them, clean the house – every single day. Far from being an athlete, I took the challenge of running half marathon. For a month, I trained and beat my own records. Right now, I’m far from having a big salary, but I managed my personal finance. I built my emergency funds, got my insurance, invest in stock market and earn extra in blogging. Everyone thinks that blogging is easy. Blogging has a steep learning curve at first. Only those who value consistency can survive.
What I am saying is everything can be learned. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner. Just take control of what you have decided to start, then increase your responsibility capacity, and you will see opportunities start on pouring.
Don’t prefer quick results over hard work…
Dramatic results are only children of hard work. The way you manage your life and how responsible you are can be seen by your actions in a daily basis. Not just on things, but the way you handle people also speaks a lot about you. I know we can’t control everything. Who can? No one. But, you can control the things which you have control – yourself. It starts with the ability to acknowledge that you can choose. Then, identify the parts of your life which needs control. Once you are able to successfully do this, you will see changes in your life.
I hope that you get something. That’s actually the main point. Thanks for reading.
