Have you ever wondered why some people are more successful than others?
If you have, then you’re already ahead of the game. Most people – in fact, I’d say 97 percent of the population – think they know the answer. They think it has to do with luck. Instead of taking the initiative, they have yielded to the three greatest enemies of success:
- Being stuck in comfort.
- Learned helplessness.
- Always taking the easy way out.
To become successful, you have to become an overachiever.
Overachievers never stay in their comfort zones. While most people find reasons not to change, overachievers spend every day changing into someone better.
Overachievers never succumb to helplessness. While others are busy making excuses, the successful are busy overcoming obstacles.
Overachievers know that anything worthwhile means hard work. Others take the path of least resistance and are always looking for an easy way to achieve a result.
Steps to Becoming an Overachiever
First: Get uncomfortable.
Every successful person fails multiple times. The secret? They don’t call them failures but rather lessons learned along the path to success. Learn to be comfortable in your own skin but uncomfortable without forward movement.
Second: Stop complaining.
There are no excuses for failure. It is not your boss’s or your coworker’s fault that you have not found success. If the job leads to a dead end, then leave it. Do not let a job or a boss define who you will become.
What are you using as your excuse?
If you’ve been doing the same thing every day, complaining about those who are holding you back, then get out! Stop complaining. Make a change! Start living your best life NOW.
Third: Do not take the path of least resistance simply because it’s easy.
Set clear goals and go after them. A winning mindset does not develop unintentionally; it takes work. Identify the hardest task you have to do every day and do it first. By taking small actionable steps daily, you will accomplish what you set out to do.
Do not make the easy, mundane tasks your priority. Instead, focus on the tasks that add value to your long-term goals.
You must be determined from the beginning to become good at what you do, and over time more doors will open.
Leaders are readers.
Fifth: Learn to sell.
Selling is a science. There is a formula to it. You can learn anything you need to learn to be successful. There are no limits.
The people who are overachievers – the ones who find success – do so by solving big problems.
