This would have to be one of the most important life lessons. NO ONE ELSE can make you successful. It’s all up to you. You’re responsible for your own success. Period.
On the contrary, no one or no thing can make you fail either. It serves you no good to blame education, the economy, or what ever offsets you’ve had in your life. Carrying on in that manner is taking and accepting the victim mentality. I caution you NEVER to do this. Thousands of individuals have succeeded despite these hardships and even worse, so don’t make excuses for yourself and try convincing yourself that some how you’re some kind of victim.
Just like my last blog, the grass isn’t ANY greener on the other side. You either have it now or can get everything you need to be successful. Just remember it’s up to you, no one else…and then just do it!
Some may think “that’s easy for xyz to say” when they see successful people, or someone they believe to have more than them. H-E-LL-O!? How do you think anyone is able to say the things they say? Freely available to assist you. Take it and utilize it to your ability.
So it’s not your sponsor, your upline, teacher, boss, family, friends…not the economy or the government. It’s not the compensation plan, or any of these things perceived as road blocks. Success is YOURS if you really want it…kick those obstacles to the curve. ONLY YOU control this. Keep in mind “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”
“I used to say, ‘things cost too much.’ Then my teacher straightened me out on that by saying, ‘The problem isn’t that things cost too much. The problems is that you can’t afford it.’ That’s when I finally understood that the problem wasn’t it-–the problem was me!”
