We often spend too much time "allowing" ourselves to get stuck and further away from achieving our goals.
You know you want success and specifically what you want to achieve, BUT we make excuses as to why we don't keep moving towards them. You know the familiar ones...."I'm not sure what to do next...."
- "I've never done anything like this before...."
- "There's so much information out there, I don't know what or who to follow....."
- "I'm not sure what to do next...."
These are all excuses I use to tell myself until I understood the power of listening to stories. Just like I use to when I was kid, excited for my parents to read me a bedtime story.
If you drill down on any success story, you always discover that luck was a huge part of it. You can't control luck, but you can move from a game with bad odds to one with better odds. You can make it easier for luck to find you. The most useful thing you can do is stay in the game. - Scott Adams
Today as an adult, I love listening to stories of others struggles, challenges and abilities to overcome ultimately leading to their success story.
I spend a lot of time listening to podcasts, interviews, reading books, and connecting with others with the goal of hearing their story. Most of my success is tied back to listening to powerful stories from the most successful people in the world.
While many people will find that to be a waste of time, they're not realizing how much they are missing out on vital information to help them pursue their goals.
Best of all it doesn't require you to travel or even pay to hear these stories. Technology that's available to us today with podcast platforms, YouTube, and other capabilities allows us to hear these stories with the push of a button.
You can hear these stories while you're on the go in your car or during your commute on the train to work using your smart phone.
Years ago the only way to hear stories from Tony Robbins was to pay to attend his events or buy his package of audio or video tapes.
Now with a couple of searches you can listen to any successful person you want for as long as you want and where you want. It's completely up to you, you're in control!
I still attending networking events, conferences, and invest in courses to learn from other successful people. But it's part of my daily routine to hear the powerful success stories of others.
Think about it.....
Let's say you're building an online e-commerce business. Wouldn't it be value to hear the challenges and the mindset Jeff Bezos had while building Amazon?
Or you're building the next viral social media platform... wouldn't it be awesome to get the inside scoop directly from Mark Zuckerberg.
Building a business or achieving big dreams is extremely hard and you're sure to face many challenges. The great thing is so did many other success people before. Learning their daily plan, their hacks, their mindset, and anything that helped them get over the hump is valuable to you.
Google is a powerful force if utilized correctly instead of searching for gossip and news around the world.
Download a podcast, search for stories on YouTube, and find stories that are in alignment with your goals.
