How to succeed at anything

how to succeed

A few years ago there was a book that became a huge best-seller entitled “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus” written by a dude by the name of John Gray.

I never actually read this book (I wouldn’t admit it even if I had) but from what I can tell it’s basically about the differences between men and women and how this relates to relationships, communication, proper toilet seat positioning, sex and other super important stuff.

 

Having never read the book I am not in a position to comment on the wisdom contain therein.

 

I stumbled upon the book while doing some research into the differences between how men and women differ in terms of our identity and how we see ourselves in the world.

 

As a man, I can say that by and large our identity is found in our accomplishments. We tend to have discussions with one another about what we do what we are working on and stuff like that.

 

And I can tell you that a lot of the frustrations that men experience are due to living in the gap that exists between where they are and where they want to be.

 

This then begs the question- “how do I bridge the gap?”

 

Now that I am older and have had some success I am finding that younger guys are asking me more questions about what I do and the road that I have traveled to get here.

 

And its funny how many times the word “secret” comes up. People love secrets and will almost do anything to acquire knowledge that isn’t common.

 

Now this is the part where you expect me to tell you that there are no secrets and that the only way to achieve your goal is through hard work.

 

This isn’t entirely true. While hard work is critical to success there is one thing that trumps all when it comes to succeeding-

 

FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED.

 

That’s it- just four small words that will make all the difference in your life and success.

 

The workout, the diet, the project, the dream, the plan- none of them have to be perfect. You just have to see them through.

 

It doesn’t matter if you are from Mars or Venus. Finish what you started and then you can be successful.

 

I can’t guarantee the level of success you will attain- there are just too many intangibles that come into play.

 

But there is one thing that is 100% guaranteed- if you don’t finish you can never be successful at anything ever.

 

People may write you off and tell you that it can’t be done, that it’s too hard or out of reach. They offer you “comfort” and tell you that it’s ok to give up, give in and be mediocre like everybody else…and like they are.

 

 

But what they don’t realize is that you are stronger than this…and that you are not done yet.

 

 

FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED.

 

Go out and show yourself what you are capable of – I am rooting for you all the way!
