21 Hard Things Required To Be Succesful

In the past few years, my wife and I have learned a few things that are required to be successful in our Advocare business.  Understanding that having a growth mindset is the beginning of getting where you want to be in business and life.  These decisions were uncomfortable and we were forced to ask ourselves better questions in order to get the life we wanted.  It all takes hard work and perseverance, but is all worth it when you wake up every day living a life by your design.  Most of these were taken from an article (http://www.businessinsider.com/hard-things-you-need-to-do-to-be-successful-2014-1) from the Business Insider and I added a few myself.

  • You have to identify what it is that you really want right now, in 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and 5 years.
  • You have to know that you don’t know.
  • You have to make the call you’re afraid to make.
  • You have to get up earlier than you want to get up.
  • You have to give more than you get in return right away.
  • You have to care more about others than they care about you.
  • You have to fight when you are already injured, bloody, and sore.
  • You have to feel unsure and insecure when playing it safe seems smarter.
  • You have to lead when no one else is following you yet.
  • You have to invest in yourself even though no one else is.
  • You have to look like a fool while you’re looking for answers you don’t have.
  • You have to grind out the details when it’s easier to shrug them off.
  • You have to deliver results when making excuses is an option.
  • You have to search for your own explanations even when you’re told to accept the “facts.”
  • You have to make mistakes and look like an idiot.
  • You have to try and fail and try again.
  • You have to run faster even though you’re out of breath.
  • You have to be kind to people who have been cruel to you.
  • You have to meet deadlines that are unreasonable and deliver results that are unparalleled.
  • You have to be accountable for your actions even when things go wrong.
  • You have to keep moving towards where you want to be no matter what’s in front of you.
