We all want to be successful in life. And we all say that we will do anything to achieve that success. But in reality, success is a dish only earned through hard work, dedication, and perseverance. Not everyone can be successful. Not everyone has what it takes. If you have this lone quality, then the chances are high that you are going to be successful.
To make this point we are going to tell the tale of two expungement attorneys who opened their own business. Both people want to be successful. But to get there each takes a different path. To start, expungement attorney number one reads everything he can about expungement law. He puts in time to create a good website and fill it with great content. And he works hard to cultivate referral sources.
Expungment attorney number two does just the opposite. He goes to the office every day, but he messes around on the internet. He spends a lot of time waiting for the phone to ring instead of making it ring. And he thinks that just by being there people will come.
Who do you think will be successful?
If you guessed expungement attorney number one, then, of course, you are correct. What separated expungment attorney number one from number two? Of course, he outworked everyone around him.
One of the worst things about television today, and in particular with reality television, is we see all of these people at the pinnacle of their careers. We see the height of success, when everything seems so easy and to flow so naturally. What they don’t show in these television shows is the years and years of hard work that was often put in to reach those heights. These people have outworked everyone. They’ve created their own luck, and if you want to be successful, you’ll create your own luck too.
There are examples of greatness all around us. Take a look at someone near to you that you think is successful and ask them how they did it. They may act like it was easy, but if you dig deeper you’ll see they had a drive and a passion to succeed that not many others had. The key to being a successful businessperson is finding that inner drive.
