Working hard and having a good work ethic is greater than just dreams and desires.
My wife was perusing the depth’s of the internet today and she saw this statement. “How do I sit in my bed for the rest of my life but also become a billionaire at the same time?” And I thought for a moment, wow… that would be great! I’d also like to become a billionaire in my pajama’s…
Now I know, that currently people are springing up all over the place with idea’s and products, and appear to be “overnight successes” – but, I can assure you, that for most, that is not the case.
You have to actually put in work, you cannot just sit back and dream.
I am constantly amazed by some things. One thing that amazes me today… the number of questions or inquiries on Google for people who want to become billionaires and do so in a short amount of time and preferably without any real action or work to achieve it.
I understand that people want to dream big but here is a maybe harsh dose of reality. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Someone somewhere is paying for that LUNCH!
People generally do not become an overnight success. Not as we see it. Take Gary Vaynerchuk for example, yes I’m a fan! Both his online and offline success is massive right now. Prior to 2005, he was just a dude busting his ass to grow the family wine business. And it took a ton of work. His online empire started out on Wine Library in 2006. His first book deal was 2009. 2009 Also marked the start of his empire at VaynerMedia. Then VaynerMedia took off. Here we are in 2017 and Gary still seems to be on the rise of his journey right now. Why, because he is real, and he works his ass off. It’s work ethic and providing value to people.
Overnight success averages something like 10 years of real work. Look up any person that you admire, or that you believe has a level of success that you are chasing… their story will be a lot longer than you think.
You want money, and success, you have to work for it. It doesn’t come to you just because you want it to and you have this dream.
Here’s a simple formula to consider…..Work hard to provide value to others. Get paid for the value you produce and provide to people. Then spend less money along the way than what you make. Continue finding new ways to provide value and keep working hard!
Over time, you’ll have wealth. It’s that simple.
So many successful people, millionaires, and billionaires say that the key to their success – it’s taking that first step. So here’s the deal. That idea you have, start on it. Just go, learn everything you can about the subject, that thing that you are passionate about and begin. So go do it. Get started.
