Path to success

Let’s not kid ourselves. The path to success is one that is going to be riddled with lots of uphills and downhills. We will never be adequately prepared for the path to success, no matter how well we’ve planned things.

The mind, the body and the soul will all have to be prepared for success and it’s not an easy task – especially the mind. But generally speaking, there are three parts or three legs to success. The route is the same but through the path of success, there will be three major turning points. And here, we will deal with the three turning points.

Turning point, path to success No. 1
This is also called the I-am-so-sure-this-is-going-to-work turning point. This is the point where you are confident, you’re sure and you’re absolutely enthusiastic beyond words to get to where you want to go. It’s like when you first start out planning your vacation. You can’t wait to get there and is absolutely sure you’re going to have loads of fun, make new friends, find a new love or just get baked under the sun! Everything’s going to be perfect.

This is the most exhilarating and fun-filled part about your journey. Everything’s so rosy, you can’t believe that you didn’t think of this sooner.

At this point, you’re also mapping out your journey, planning your path to success, talking incessantly about it and all psyched up about the notion of becoming great at something. Listen, this is the most fun-filled part of your journey, so, make sure you enjoy it because…here comes turning point No. 2.

Turning point No. 2
This will be the hardest, most difficult, extremely excruciating and challenging time of your life! You’ve invested a lot of money, time and effort into starting this journey. Your friends all know that you’ve started something and was all hyped up about it. You’ve got everything planned – but nothing is working! Well, perhaps one or two things have started shaping out, but everything else got flushed!

It’s frustrating, disappointing and absolutely nothing short of devastating to watch your plan dissipate into thin air. Everything was supposed to be perfect.

Well, at turning point No. 2, you have to decide whether you want to trudge on through the mud or turn back to the starting point. It takes a lot to be successful and that means that you have to be persistent, mentally strong, consistent and patient. This stage will pass, you will get through it alive….and this is a fact, but can you hang on? It is at this point of the journey that most people quit their projects. Are you one of them? Decide. If you’re mentally strong enough or have a strong-enough dream, you’ll get through this path to success a little bit scraped and bruised but stronger. By getting through this stop you will be stronger and more capable to handle turning point No. 3.

Turning point No.3
You’re tired and exhausted from all that fighting and keeping up with things and people. You’re almost there but you’re heaving, puffing and totally beat. You can see success in the far off distance and you’re totally sure you can reach it – but you’re tired. Absolutely tired.

Giving up now is not an option. You’ve come this far. Giving up now means you’ve wasted all those scrapes and bruises during turning point no. 2. And you MUST trudge on. If you make it, you’re a winner. If you don’t, you go back…. Further back than your starting point.

You decide.
