The number 1 issue why I see people not get success whether that’s in fitness, business, job promotions, etc, is simple…
It comes down to the lack of follow through, the final 5% to make it happen.
This issue can seem obvious…
… but when your in the thick of it and your trying to accomplish something you don’t realize that all you need to do is keep pushing forward.
Because here’s what happens…
The majority of people think success is this obvious path that’s predictable… But in reality it’s not. Things happen, there’s hurdles to be jump and hiccups all along the way…
And often enough when the first challenge or problem arises people end up quitting because they were caught off guard.
So how do you blast through this…
By knowing that it’s not always the lack of skill, the mentorship or taking action that’s wrong. What’s wrong is you being consistent... your follow through.
The reason why I say this is because…
… when most people hit their first brick wall they’ll automatically assume that it’s either their lack of skill, mentorship or wrong action taking when in fact their doing everything right.
When this happens you’ll hear people say stuff like, “Maybe it’s not for me, it’s my genetics or you don’t understand it’s impossible, etc”
But in reality if they were to keep doing what they’re doing and stay consistent they would reach success.
This photo is a perfect example of it… it reminds me of the story in the book, “Think & Grow Rich” of the individual named Darby during the gold rush days.
He was mining in Colorado back in 1937 and he ended up quitting 3 feet short of striking gold, he lost millions of dollars worth of ore.
He was doing everything right… but he didn’t follow through.
So how can you stay motivated when the going gets tough?
Like I said up above, you need to understand that there’ll be hiccups and roadblocks along the way. I myself am prepared to push through them by being creative, thinking outside the box or doing whatever it takes.
I know as long as I keep pushing forward I’ll reach my goals because I’m doing everything else right.
Recently I had an issue where I was putting together a product for launch and I had a couple people delegating the tech / programming side.
Everything was going good and then roughly around 85% of the project being complete… the individuals got busy and everything came to a halt.
The last bit of work was a bit over my head… but the only thing I could do was buckle up and make it happen.
When stuff like this happens you need to force yourself to do it. At some point you need to develop self-reliance and self responsibility and just follow through.
People who are successful are people who push forward no matter what.
To make things easier…
When I’m trying to achieve a goal I always focus on one day at a time. I break my main goal in chunks and take it on layer by layer. Here’s a perfect explanation of it.
Reading books daily on mindset helps out a lot. Also being subscribed to YouTube channels like this where motivational content is posted daily helps
