Why don't most people succeed?
Although that's a question people have been trying to figure out since pretty much the dawn of time itself, I think I have the answer.
The reason most people don't succeed is because they don't believe in themselves. They don't believe in their vision. They don't believe in their capabilities. They let people talk them out of their dreams, and they let fear, failure, and a lack of support destroy their chances at success.
Let me tell you something: Nothing the media tells you matters. If you feel as though you have a lack of support, keep pushing through. If you truly believe in yourself, no matter the odds, you will be successful.
There is no set process for success. There are a billion different ways to get there, and there is no specific roadmap I can give anyone specifically who is reading this that will get them to the top. However, I can promise you that if you keep pushing through, your breakthrough is going to happen. If you stay loyal to your vision, you are going to make it.
If you can be consistent, you are already leaps and bounds ahead! If you can stay true to your faith in God and yourself, all those distractions like temporary failures and people bringing you down will seem tiny.
Life is what you make of it. If you stay focused on the haters, you can't expect your life to go anywhere. Your reality is your faith, so don't run from your circumstances! It's impossible to run from yourself. You've got to face who you are and deal with your problems. You've got to have faith that there's are some incredible things in store for your life.
Someone is out there waiting for the right opportunity, struggling through their individual circumstances because they truly believe their vision is worth it. Someone is out there, waiting for the right moment, and no one is giving them any support. No one is telling them, "You can do this," but that person is staying true to their faith, waiting patiently.
Whatever dream or goal you have, stick to it. The reason most people don't succeed is because they don't truly believe. If you can truly believe in something, you won't quit because success means too much to you. If you truly believe in something, you know that the struggle is strengthening you. The struggle is making you better. Your failures are something you can learn from. Pick yourself up, and hold your head high. Success isn't something that happens for everyone, but it's absolutely something that everyone can choose for themselves.
It all starts with you.
