#1 Be Coachable
Being Coachable takes HUMILITY. It takes admitting that you are not the best ever and walking around like you know it all. Meanwhile all the most successful people KNOW you aren’t so you might be fooling the seven year old with your picture of all your cash from the bank or that rented Ferrari and the title in your Instagram as “Entrepreneur” but you aren’t getting anywhere. What does being coachable mean? It means getting knowledge from those who have gone before you. Books, Youtube, Podcasts, Messaging people who you aspire to be like and GIVE THEM VALUE. Help them and put in your time. You can’t think selfishly on this one or people will see right through you.
Consume education while you are working. Don’t sit there for hours watching Youtube videos and then turn around and do nothing about it. #1 You won’t remember it all in the first place and #2 You are wasting valuable time watching and not doing. Everyone has the same twenty-four hours in a day my friend. Successful people have learned to stop WASTING it.
#2 Overnight Successes are a Myth (Unless you got your granddaddy’s money)
So a new song comes out and suddenly you think that they are an overnight success because now you see them everywhere right? Well let’s consider Ariana Grande’s career for a little sample – Boom she puts out a song and now she’s everywhere right?!?! Wrong. She started her career in 2008 (lucky for her she has an amazing gift that she or her family realized at a super young age) it then took 5 years of working, gaining experience and hustling in the background to then produce her debut album in 2013. She was only 15 when she started her career so what were you doing at fifteen? Even if you do have your granddaddy’s money and go ahead and run your start-up idea, you will most likely need to learn the concepts here or your “success” will be fleeting.
#3 Hard Work is the ONLY Way You Are Going to be Successful
I hate to be the one to break it to you but all the ads on Youtube and Facebook about a method to suddenly “make it” in the next 24 hours are B.S. It takes long hours of APPLYING what you have learned for real sustainable success. When you start something and you get super pumped for the next 3 hours, 36 hours, or 3 months and then quit because you aren’t seeing results, it is going to set you back more than you realize. I empathize with you impatient people because I too want instant gratification. We live in a world where everything is almost immediate and we think our goals of our career should be too. I also know it takes time to learn the skills necessary to go to the next level of your path and every single career goal has steps within it. Everything has perfect timing. You want to know why? It’s isn’t our timing. God has a plan and purpose for you and it is His plan not yours. So learn it now and be okay with it not being instant but still apply the lessons learned here. You can wish or pray or “think big” and not actually put in the steps or work when a door is opened to you and guess what, surprise surprise it doesn’t happen. Then you walk away being angry because it didn’t happen but God might be saying, well I gave you that video to inspire you, then I gave you the passion to go create that, then if you would have said “Yes” to doing such and such for that person for free, that was your answer. I am only trying to get you to think differently about your circumstance and situations. I can’t say that if you would do these all specifically you would win the lottery but maybe you need a different perspective.
Yea, yea, yea. Consistency is key. We have all heard it but what does that look like in reality? It is learning, applying, growing, period. You have to put in the work for hours a day: creating, documenting, consuming knowledge repeat. You must know that it can take years of making videos, taking pictures and learning how to do it better while doing this every single day and not giving up because it is “too hard” or “too long” is the key to success if there ever was one. It’s the resiliency to the long nights and hard times and if you are willing to stick with it, there’s your ticket. It’s kind of like any “diet” you have tried. The more times you stop and start the longer it takes you to get to your goal.
Fail. This might might seem like a little contradictory to the last secret but stay with me on this one. Do whatever you WANT to do. Try what you want. You can always adjust, redirect, or do something different if you don’t like it but you lose when you quit. Fake it til you make it is dead so stop faking. Trying DIFFERENT things over and over and over until you learn what works for you and your business is the key. If you hate the product you are pushing or the way you are speaking to your audience or even down to the colors you use, Fail. Try so many things and just say yes to opportunities because you can always readjust. Be authentic in what you try and be willing to be open minded enough to fail and not let it hurt your ego. If you love what you do and would do it for free then you won’t get burned out even if you don’t make money at first. That’s why success stories work. They are real and follow their passions and produced VALUE to their audience and money came after.
