This is an important image. Take it all in.
Success. It is not usually what you see.
This image shows us two things about success.
One: When you see successful people, please remember they didn’t just wake up one morning and they were a success! They had to work hard for it.
And, it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns.
There were disappointments. There were failures and rejections.
And there were probably times when they doubted themselves.
And two: They didn’t just wake up and they were a success!
What does that mean for YOU?
It means you need to put in the work.
It means you might just fail a couple of times.
It means there will be moments of disappointment and doubt.
The Success take away
So, what’s the take away from this picture? How can we apply it to our lives?
Does it mean we shouldn’t be disappointed or doubt ourselves?
Well, I’m not sure we have control over that in the moment. What I do know we have control over, though, is how long we stay in that moment of disappointment and doubt. Make sure you don’t stay there long.
When you have that moment, get back up and start again!
When you fail, try again!
Know that you have to put in the work and sometimes that means sacrifices and late nights.
This doesn’t have to only apply to career type success.
