The First Secret to Real Success
I know…I know.
You have read articles, watched videos, and ordered books on this very topic and for some mysterious reason you are still sitting in the same place doing the same shit day in and day out. It is frustrating and sometimes downright depressing.
I have been there and I have been in better places and right now at the writing of my first blog post, I have hit rock bottom.
So, with no further adoe my name is Atticus and I am currently an overweight, poor, low skilled 27 year old with nothing go for me.
Four years ago, I was on top of the world finally making better money, running 25 miles a week, and genuinely happy. Today… not so much and I can imagine that you may be in the same situation and that is how you got lucky enough to run into me via your favorite search engine.
I know you are now thinking that maybe I am not the best guy to take advice from, but hear me out. It seems like I have read every success book under the sun and I have listened to more Tedtalks, Tony Robbins, and Les Brown then I would recommend. So, I understand the principles of success, and I know what it takes to get there. I also know what it takes to fall from a successful life and I will share my one failure with you….
I have not been taking massive ACTION.
Honestly, I have hardly taken any ACTION.
I dream and I plan and I plan, but I never buckle down and try to just make it happen.
This is how I ended up at the shittiest point in my life to date.
So, if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired. If you are fed up with your current situation. If you are truly ready to change your life like I am then listen up and prepare for the harsh reality of what needs to be done. Prepare yourself for the real secret of success that everyone from Michael Jordan to Bill Gates has used to achieve their goals….
You and I have to start taking ACTION now to get shit done. Stop procrastinating. Stop making excuses. Stop being lazy.
You have to make shit happen.
The good news…I am fed up and I encourage you to get fed up to. Stop making excuses or giving yourself permission to suck at life. I want you to think about all of the shitty stuff going on around you that is bringing you down and decide right now to change it.
I know it may be easier said then done, but at the end of the day no one has ever become successful by finding excuses. Successful people just do shit and they make no excuses.
They wake up early and get shit done, they stay up late to work on their craft, and they sacrifice TV and Social Media for their success.
So the question is now… How do I find this energy within myself?
How To Start Taking Action
What I suggest is simply asking yourself why you want what you want and digging down deep to find your why.
If you want to lose weight… forget this silly malarkey about you want to feel better. While it may be true and something to keep in mind, for most of us it will not get us to where we want to be.
You have to be willing to be selfish and maybe a little politically incorrect.
What do you really want?
If you are a man or woman, homosexual or straight, I guarantee you have some interest in the someone being physical attracted to you. You want that person to want you and you want that person to be turned on by you. You want people to drool over your body and wish they were you.
I know it is embarrassing to admit and maybe we do not want to say this out loud, but if we can be honest for a moment, it’s true.
So, really find your WHY. It does not need to be something beautiful like curing the world of cancer or destroying starvation. You need to really find what tickles your fancy and think about it all the time. Find that thing that gives you butterflies and gets you excited about your future like the girl in the picture below.
Now, all you have to do is sit down and think about what you want. Take an hour or two if needed and really think long and hard about what it is that you want more than anything and figure out WHY it is that you want it.
Remember, it does not matter how silly or crude your WHY is. It only matters that this is YOUR WHY and you truly want it more than anything else.
Once you have this thing in your mind and why you want it you have already began acquiring this thing. The next step for you is simply to start taking action.
Of course the obvious question is now what action should you take?
This post will not completely guarantee your success, but I have come to realize that these two things tied together are the most common missing ingredients in one’s path to failure.
Accepting these realities and embracing them are the first simple steps to really being successful and achieving your goal. It really is this simple and by constantly looking for new secrets and gimmicks you are taking away from your time to achieve your goal.
So, please start now and sit down to find your why and commit yourself to taking consistent action toward your goal to achieve you WHY. It is so simple and I hope that you will take this seriously the same way I am. I guarantee it will work miracles in you life.
So, if we are having trouble remembering what all of this was about….here it is in simple form.
1.) Find you WHY.
2.) Begin now to take action toward your goal.
Once, you have found your why and really committed to taking action there are only two simple steps left to take and I promise you that all of this can be completed in a day if you are really ready for it.
So, if you ready for your new life and you are one of the rare 1% on this planet who will seriously buckle down and get shit done then move on to the next post concerning your action plan and we will figure out where to focus all of this energy you have building up inside of you.
