There is a prevailing myth that there is only one way to become successful and only one way to design your business for success. It’s usually the person selling you that “way” that is trying to convince you of this.
Their magical formula is so amazing that it can produce astonishing, mystifying amounts of income, with little work, and in a fraction of time.
All you have to do is buy it, follow the 5 simple steps, and poof- the dream life is yours.
While all of this sounds flipping fantastic and lord knows I would sign up tomorrow if any of it were actually true.
But it isn’t true.
Now this is not bad new people, on the contrary there are a million different ways to be successful in your work and in your business.
You do have to follow some basics.. you do need to go ask people to work with you and you do need to accept money as payment.
Unless payment in goats equals success for you. In that case, please call me. I am DYING to work with you.
But other than that you can be as creative as you want when you are putting together your plan.
I have worked with Realtors, VP’s of Marketing, VP’s of Finance, Therapists, Midwives, Accountants, Financial Advisors, Coaches, Nurses, MLM business owners, Bloggers, and Graphic designers just to name a few.
I have helped them grow their businesses and helped them to excel in their careers.
And not a single one followed exactly the same plan.
Each individual is unique, with different goals, different lifestyles, different careers, and different businesses.
It’s naive to think that there is only one way to success.
If you are certain of the work you want to do and are willing to work hard, get the support you need, and keep on keepin’ on even when it’s hard, you will be successful.
The best piece of advice I ever received was to surround myself with smart people. They will raise you up and remind you of what you are capable of.
Look around you in your life. Who inspires you and who motivates you to be better? Don’t have someone like that? Find one or invest in one.
Spend as much time with them as possible and figure out how to peel your own banana.
