How to Be Successful
How to be successful: You want a better life; to make more money, have more time… and you have some good ideas on how to do this, right?
Do you know what those ideas are worth when you don’t execute on them? They’re worth nothing.
Let’s talk about how to be successful, because success is waiting for you.
Ideas by themselves have zero value unless you bring them to life!
Don’t let these ideas die in your head.
Get them out. Bring them to life. Put them in the world. Run with them.
And whatever path you’re going to take, just do it!
I mean, pour some life into your ideas. At least give it a chance.
No more waiting or putting it off or waiting for the right time, people, or the right alignment of things in the world.
No more excuses. Just execution. Just go in and make it happen.
See, a lot of folks talk so much about it. “Hey, I want to do this, and I want to do that. I want to start trading, make more money, have a better life.”
And then they do nothing. You see, it’s the mind.
How to be successful: It’s the mind that’s lacking.
The mind is trying to find an easy way out.
Your mind is making you think too much right off the bat, it starts to think about…
“Oh, what broker should I choose? What’s the best charting software? And how much do I have to pay in taxes?”
Stop! Just go out there and start doing. Learn one strategy and then start practicing. You see, nobody got it right immediately.
You start, and then you make some mistakes and you learn from them, and you keep going.
What happens if you don’t try?
See, it’s like walking. Think about it.
When a toddler takes his first steps. What’s happening? He falls down, right? And then he gets back up and tries again.
Now, think about it. What would happen if the toddler would give up after he falls down for the first time?
He would never walk but now, here we are as adults, and sometimes we don’t even try.
We are already in our head thinking – what if I fail? What if it doesn’t work?
Think about it. If toddlers did that, none of us would walk, ride a bicycle, or swim.
Get out of your own head.
Stop overthinking it. Just start doing it! Expect to make mistakes, you’ll learn from them and you’ll get better. This is part of how to be successful.
And if you keep doing this, you will become unstoppable. But stop waiting for it.
You’re running out of the most valuable asset so why wait another moment? Just start! Who knows how much more time we have?
Stop sitting back and taking notes all day long.
One day you have to graduate class, or become the moneymaking machine that others then try to emulate and take notes from.
That’s when you pass the torch, but before you pass the torch, you must have the torch first.
The Torch of Success
You see, the torch of success is there.
It’s within your reach, but you have to get up and get it. The torch of success will not be handed to you, you have to get up and get it.
So stop thinking about it, and start doing it.
Here’s how to be successful…
Right now, decide to do one thing.
No matter how small, decide to do one thing that brings you closer to your goal and then do it.
You’ve got this! Success is waiting for you! Go get it!
That’s my little sermon for you.
