Success is Really Freaking Hard

Success is really freaking hard. The honest truth is that most people claim they want it, but almost no one is willing to truly go after it. Success is accomplished by doing the things no one else wants to do, or is willing to do, and doing it over, and over, and over, and OVER again for years without any outside motivation.

Success is found in: 

  • Waking up at 2 am every single day for 7 years straight.
  • Saying no to anything that is going to go on past 9 pm.
  • Missing important family events.
  • Letting go of friendships that are not pushing you towards your goals.
  • Being the only person that thinks the way you do.
  • Going to bed each night and waking up each morning thinking of how to reach your goals.
  • Going out to eat and thinking about what makes the experience cool.
  • Constantly fighting with your spouse about the hours you put in.
  • Continuous uncomfortable conversations with employees.
  • Firing friends.
  • No one understanding what drives you.
  • Having no one in your life that understands your daily habits.
  • Creating your own motivation every single day. 
  • People hating you.
  • Being okay that people hate you.
  • People you mentor screwing you. 
  • Doing the same thing every single day without any hope of it getting better.
  • Saying “no” to almost anything you used to say yes to.
  • Never taking a sick day.
  • Never missing a day of work.
  • Doing whatever you have to do to get the job done.
  • Fighting for what you want.
  • Doing things you don’t want to but have to.
  • Fighting each day to keep what you’ve earned.

Success is found in all of the things that no one wants to do. This is why people hate successful people. Most want to be successful but are not willing to do what it takes to get there because success is really freaking hard! People want to use terms like “hustle” or phrases like “on my grind” or put “entrepreneur” on their social media posts, but very few people actually deserve to be labeled as an entrepreneur, let alone “successful”. If you are willing to do what you don’t want to for YEARS on end, then you deserve to have success. The secret is doing the hard, mundane, sometimes mind-numbing things each day with consistency. Many people can find motivation for short bursts of time but the consistent drive, grit, pissed-offness (yeah, I made up a word), every single day is where it is found. If you aren’t willing to do this, stop saying you want to be successful, you’re wasting everyone’s time.
