Success Must Be Earned

When Ford announced the GT back in 2004 I was broke, 60k+ in credit card debt and earning $695 a month working 100+ hours a week.

In fact here is how my paychecks worked out the first 12 years of my 16 years in business.

Year 1-3: $0
Year 4-9: $695 a month
Year 10-12: 40k A Year.

Now a days people look at where they are and think “I can never get there”…because in todays society all you hear about is instant gratification and overnight success stories.

16 YEARS.

Think about that for a minute and let set.

Think about something you have dedicated your life to for 16years. Besides eating, sleeping, breathing…most people have a hard time coming up with an example when asked that question.

And THATS precisely the problem.

Society will have you believe that there is such a thing as “overnight success” or “luck”. We are bombarded by it daily in the media.

Movie stars, lottery winners, reality shows its all we see anymore.

What they dont show you is the TRUTH.

The small business started by two 19 year old kids with 12 grand the earned from painting the stripes on parking lots.

The sleeping in the back of their first store.

The struggle.

The pain.

The sacrifice.

The loss.

The heartbreak.

The fear.

The loss of sanity.

The anger.

The hate.

The bitterness.

No…all they show is the after effect.

The cars.

The big house.

The expensive vacations.

They show the gourmet prepared steak, but they dont show the butcher doing his work.

So when looking at all these successes…BE INSPIRED…but be aware of the “butchering” (WORK) that goes into making that steak!

Beware of the trap of instant gratification.

Nothing thats truly worthwhile can be had “now”. The “The American Dream” is not given, its EARNED.

Worthwhile results take time and are the cumulative result of all your little “victories” over the course of that time.

Whats easy & fun now is often what leads to frustration, disappointment and failure later.

On the flip side, what seems difficult and frustrating now will often lead to enjoyment, fulfillment and success later.

There is a price on everything.

Will you pay it?
