As I just wrapped up doing a speaking engagement I was at my table greeting visitors as they walked by. One young man approached me and said, “ Hey Mr. Jonathan what do I have to do to be successful like you?” In that moment I was blown away and humbled to see that this young man saw me as a success. When I regained my composure I said if I could give you three quick tips it would be this.
First, you have to Surround yourself with positive people. Positive people will always who help you see the brighter side of things. People who will want to genuinely help you pursue your dreams and people who want to see you do good in life.
Second, you would have to Remain determined. In order to be determined, you cannot allow what people say about you affect the way you flow. People will tell you just about anything to just try and attempt to distract you from what you are trying to do. Don’t be fooled people are slick.
Lastly, this might seem like the most simple of the three but Put your head down and do the work. The only way to get the true results is to put in work. I understand it’s easy to get excited about something the first day, week or maybe even a year. What will happen to that drive and determination when times get tough and you aren’t living the life you envisioned? Are you going to give up, or are you going to push a little bit harder to say you don’t ever want to be in this situation again?
If you do these three things you will be able to go far and live out your dreams. It will be great at times and other times it won’t but how will you respond to the challenge?
