Have you ever noticed entrepreneurs who appear to become successful "overnight"? It's a bit of a mystery, isn't it; one day nobody knows who they are and the next day everyone's talking about them. This is an interesting phenomenon that happens with entrepreneurs, but I assure you... the success rarely happens "overnight." Granted, there may be an extremely small percentage of true overnight successes; but for most entrepreneurs it's taken years to reach that level of achievement. How do I know? Because it's been my personal journey.
What I want to share with you today, are the three key strategies that helped me get to this level of success in my business. For those of you who know me, or who have been following me for several years, these will sound familiar to you... but for those of you who are new to my teaching, my story and my business, get ready for an inside peek at what it really takes to become an "overnight" success.
Faith has been the single most important factor in my success. Now, you may be asking what I'm talking about when I refer to faith. First, let me say that, to me, faith has nothing to do with religion. My personal experience of faith is having the unwavering belief there is something much larger than myself that is helping me expand, grow, evolve and transform through every step of my journey... through the challenging times and the joyous times. Faith is your convincing belief of the greatness that lies within you. It's knowing that (as Marianne Williamson says) you were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
The second factor in my success is being willing to commit 110% to the realization of my highest and fullest potential. Commitment is what kept me going when I experienced multiple failures with previous businesses. Now, keep it mind that commitment is not about persisting and forcing the thing you want to be successful in, rather commitment is about being willing to let go of what isn't working because of your higher commitment to your Self. For me, this showed up as being committed to experiencing success and freedom, no matter the size or number of obstacles placed in my way. The deep desire I have to make a difference by helping and serving others was the commitment that made me continue exploring new avenues, new opportunities and new openings that helped me get to where I am today.
Ahhhh... sweet surrender. You may be wondering how surrender can help you become a six or seven-figure entrepreneur. Good question! It took me a long time to "get" this one. Because, for many years I used my will, tenacity, determination and action-oriented mindset to "make" things happen. And, yes, things happened (to a degree). However, when I fully understood what it meant to surrender to where I was being guided...versus where I thought I should be going... everything changed for the better. None of my success could have happened if I didn't surrender to what was being shown to me... and say YES to it.
