Success Reality Check – Charles Snyder Raw #112. So I’ve been thinking today, about the never-ending parade of “gurus” with a system to sell. However, almost every single one of them claims you can make millions if you just give them your money.
Keep it real!
I know that success takes work in the form of dedication and developing your skills for thousands of hours. Yes, I just said a four-letter word, W-O-R-K! You know that un-fun thing that everyone must do to realize success, but so very few “gurus” ever talk about.
What the “gurus” never tell you
Digital Marketing takes work, content creation takes work, growing and scaling a business takes a lot of work. And yes that means realizing success takes hard work too!
Will Smith talks about how so many people want success, but so few are willing to do what it takes. In the video that we posted within our private Facebook group, he talks about sacrifice in regards to self-development. In fact, I think his quote is so good in the video, I’ll share it here:
“Self discipline is the center of all material success.”
He goes on to talk about getting control of your mind and doing what you need to do to realize your dreams. So I believe it is a powerful message that every business owner and “wantrepreneur” needs to hear. Especially since many of the “gurus” out there never teach about it.
However, I won’t divulge the entire video here. That one we are saving for our customers and our “inner-circle” members.
Success Reality Check: on a personal note
So on a personal note, I have been thinking about what Will Smith had to say and how it applies to me. Or more precisely how I can use that principle in my own life and business. But even more importantly, how it has been getting me, more of the results I desire.
