The REAL Secret to Success

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like others won’t, so you can live the rest of your life like others can’t.” – Anon

Some of the worst advice that I’ve heard is “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”  This is usually taught by someone who hates their job.

The problem is not the phrase itself, but the presupposition that, if you do what you love, you’ll be successful. 

Sorry, that just ain’t true.

The good news is that the opposite is often true.  If you are successful, you can do what you love.

I’m at the track several times a week racing my horses.  I can only do that because I’m successful. 

I refuse to fly anything but private.  I can do that because I’m successful.

I work from home, making others come to see me instead of schlepping myself all over the country.  I think you get the point.  

The thing is, success isn’t simple and it doesn’t happen overnight, but ‘success leaves clues’ and those clues are readily available for those actually astute enough to look for them.

GKIC’s 2012 Marketer of the Year, Walter Bergeron, knows this.  He attended a GKIC Fast Implementation Bootcamp and in 90 days added over $1,000,000 of revenue to his business.  You can hear him tell his story of exactly how he did this below.

The end of the story (not on the video because it hadn’t happened yet) is even more remarkable.  

What you’ll never hear Walter say though is “that was easy.”  Nope, making a million bucks isn’t easy, but it’s not hard either…if you’re willing to pick up the clues AND put in the time.

So if you’re ready to do the things others won’t, to live the life that others can’t, then take the same first step that Walter did and come to a Fast Implementation Bootcamp (Free for Insider’s Circle Members.)

    Whenever you meet someone who is an “overnight success” you find out they were at it for the past 10 years.

    Oh, and I loved the Bootcamp last month in Chicago! Best part was all the hands on training.

    I do agree with that if you are successful, you can do what you love and what you want to do. It takes time to get success in your life as it is stated here, you can’t be succeed overnight but you need to give time, may be years over years.
