The difference between success and failure is action.
Specifically: Your ability to take action immediately when you spot a great opportunity.
Successful people live and breathe this philosophy.
Most people do not take action fast enough.
They make excuses. They complain. They blame others.
Most people wallow in their own self-pity.
They waste their days away waiting to win the lottery – looking for a giant bag of money to fall from the sky into the back seat of their car.
But that still won’t be enough. They’d still need someone to come over, start the car, hop in the driver’s seat and take all that cash to the bank and deposit it in their account.
Blame the government, blame the economy, blame the competition, and blame anyone but the guy in the mirror.
Here are some of the crappy things I’ve heard MOST people say this week:
“I can’t get my bills out because I have too much work to do and I can’t hire someone because I don’t make enough money.”
“I can’t raise my fees because everyone else charges the same thing I charge.”
“If I don’t offer a payment plan, the clients who cannot pay me won’t work with me.”
“Writing, speaking and networking takes too long and I need money now. Shouldn’t I just invest $1,000 per month in Search Engine Optimization?”
These ridiculous statements were made to me, by actual people, within the last seven days. But they are not unique. I hear similar things every week.
While MOST people are bitching and moaning, successful people are taking action.
Here is my challenge to you: Prove to me you are not like MOST people.
