Why Achieving Success Is Really Simple

success is really simple

“SUCCESS!”….. what a powerful word, a relative term that carries a unique definition for each and every individual.

I am very fortunate to have interviewed and studied many high achievers over the years who have lived a life of tremendous “Success”. In doing this, I have discovered a pretty awesome, yet highly obvious pattern. It’s not a secret, the holy grail, or anything that is locked away in a golden arc in Tutankhamun’s tomb. It’s pure, plain and simple…………………………..
 

“Find your passion, and relentlessly pursue your dream until your face melts and your feet fall off!!”


The chances of your face melting and your feet falling off are pretty damn slim, but it would be worth a shot for success right?

Every millionaire, entrepreneur, celebrity, athlete and life changer I have come across revealed to me that the catalyst for their success was finding their “Passion” and pursuing it.

That’s how they became successful.

They simply went deep with it and squeezed as much juice as they possibly could from it, all while making a handsome amount of cashalong the way.

If you really want to get technical then you can say, “yeah well, you need to take action”, “you need experience”, “you need a mentor”, “you need money”. YES, these things help, but if you are even thinking about it that way then you have made it way more complex than it really has to be.

When you are passionate about something and in pursuit; the over time, lack of resources, and hard hitting hurdles you encounter along the way might as well be invisible if you love what you do. That’s what makes the whole process a little easier and simple.

But only if you find your:

True-Passion

And this is where most people go wrong.

They confuse the:

Pretty little temporary passion

with the:

Life long, purposeful, energizer of the heart, mind and soul kind of passion.

Find and pursue your TRUE PASSION, and at some point in the not too distant futureYOU WILL reach success.

    Hmmmmmm. Not to shit on your parade, but I personally know people that have applied this logic to live and ended up homeless and having to rely on friends and family in their 30s.

    Whether or not you will eventually reach success depends a lot on the approach you choose to take and whether or not you actually plan ahead at all. Sure there are stories where passions wins over all else, but you can’t simply ignore stories of the opposite because they are less likely to show up in media.

    It is true that if you are able to realize what your real passion is then you will find ways on how to achieve it. Realizing your true passion and pursuing it makes it easy to reach your goal.

    This article is absolutely correct, when you have a burning passion for anything you constantly think about it and find ways to pursue it.

    Hi Joel; Glad to see you didn’t try to complicate it either. For me finding my passion came after I realized that I would no longer be able to travel with my family’s carnival. Once I accepted that that dream had passed, I could see other possibilities which lead me to start the midway marketplace a commission based site for helping people sell their new and used amusement concessions and confections equipment. And you are right once you find your passion, lack of money, skills, talent, etc are irrelivant. You find a way. I like to say social media is great for people like me because effort can overcome lack of funds. thanks for the great post and take care, max
