The Grass is Always Greener Until You Have to Mow the Lawn

If you were to ask most people if they want to be rich, they will emphatically answer YES almost every time. 

But, as I learned from my five-year study of self-made millionaires, the journey to success isn’t easy. 11196328_l

It often requires that you take numerous risks.

Success is also riddled with obstacles, adversity and mistakes, which requires sacrifice – long work hours that separate you from your family and friends.

It takes time to overcome the pitfalls you will face during the success journey.

Success is also an emotional roller coaster ride.

Most days things will not go your way and you need to gain control over your emotions or that emotional roller coaster ride will break you.

In reality, most people do not want to become successful because most people do not want to take risks, face adversity or make the sacrifices success requires.

The grass is always greener until you have to mow the lawn.

Most people simply want success to happen to them.

Deep down, they do not want to do the work required of success.  

But success never just happens.

It has to be made to happen.

It has to be earned.

And when the rubber meets the road, most are simply unwilling to devote their heart and soul to doing what it takes to become a success in life.

The fear of the unknown stops them in their tracks.

They fail to take action because they do not believe they have what it takes to survive the success journey.

Unfortunately, what most fail to realize is that courage, work ethic, persistence, focus, patience and resilience are not success traits you must possess before you pursue success.

They are success traits that reveal themselves during the success journey.

Everyone possesses these success traits.

They are part of every human being’s DNA.

But they remain dormant until they are called upon.

And they are only called upon when they are needed.

When you pursue your dreams in life, these success traits spring forth, like a fountain of riches you never knew you had. Hard Work Pays Off

Don’t let fear of the unknown stop you from pursuing your dreams.

All you need is already deep inside of you.

You just need to take that first step.

You need to take action on your dreams.

You are much more than you ever imagined.
