I get it. I really do. You’re upset because you’re not where you thought you “should” be by now.
Chairman of the Board
Success, as you’ve been defining it, still isn’t yours and you’re upset because other people seem to have “it,” while you clearly still do not.
And while it’s easy to look around us and see what we lack that others have in spades, it’s never about that.
Scott Adams delineates the haves and the have nots:
“If you want success, figure out the price, then pay it. It sounds trivial and obvious, but if you unpack the idea it has extraordinary power. I know a lot of people who wish they were rich or famous or otherwise fabulous. They wish they had yachts and servants and castles and they wish they could travel the world in their own private jets. But these are mere wishes. Few of these wishful people have decided to have any of the things they wish for. It’s a key difference, for once you decide, you take action. Wishing starts in the mind and generally stays there.
When you decide to be successful in a big way, it means you acknowledge the price and you’re willing to pay it.”
The dividing line, then, is merely a decision.
What will you decide to decide?
