I don’t know why but some people generally the lazy ones tend to think they successful people are born rich or have had friends that have helped. Not sure who they are referring too or what planet they live on but it couldn’t be further from the reality.
A few years ago I put every motivational book in the rubbish, removes them all because I realised the time I was wasting reading how to be motivated I wasn’t doing anything actually productive. All I needed was to do more think less about how, just start. There was a little motivation from someone as to why I kept them all and hearing someone tell me they are useless made me think hard about why I had bought them in the first place.
I hear people that have the most elaborate business plans and really well thought out PDF presentations that you know has the depth of a puddle on the footpath and the main motivation is to make money. I don’t know about anyone else but if money is the main motivation you will not have the same drive as if it were to create something bigger than you for a cause or reason. I guess only you will know if it’s money driven or it comes from the heart.
Find something that you love doing, then find a way to do that every day until you die, put every effort in every day and continue to find ways to be better. Always think of yourself as a novice not an expert and keep going patiently. That’s the secret, no shortcuts that will last or get you anywhere you want to be!
