For those of us who don’t have it easy (and really, who does?) let me say that you’re in excellent company. Many of us have wondered why success is hard to attain. What’s the secret? That’s what most people ask. They spend their time buying self-help books and attending seminars. But really, you want to know the easiest way to attain success?
Take the long route.
Short-cuts don’t get you there faster. Why not make a few mistakes along the way and learn from them. That’s what I did. Mistakes are good, so long as you gauge them and gain experience from them. They’re nothing to be ashamed of.
Find people in your field and become friends with them. Not because you’re after something to further your career, but because you want to have people around you you can trust and build a genuine relationship with and learn from. These days everyone networks, and that’s fine, but you don’t have to meet a million folks, you’d be amazed at how a handful of qualified people works wonders.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and learn your way to success.
