There certainly are a lot of external factors that can derail your journey toward success. There are things outside your control that can slow you down, send you on a long detour, or even stop you in your tracks. But did you really think anything worth doing was going to be easy?
The economy, government, pandemic, lockdown, or the weather. Your lack of education, connections, experience, or your ex. Give us sixty seconds and most of us can come up with a pretty long list of the reasons we haven’t become more successful. And there certainly is truth and validity in that argument. But that’s an argument you never want to win…
Do you really believe there are successful people who had a smooth, unimpeded path that they just coasted on to victory? Or would you acknowledge that they probably had to fight for it, becoming victorious not because they didn’t face obstacles, but because they overcame them? Because if you don’t accept this, you give away all your power. You have to wait and hope that success will somehow just “happen” to you.
To manifest true prosperity and success, you have to take personal responsibility. And that means redefining yourself from a recipient to a co-creator.
