Getting through your “eventually”.

Success quote by Art Williams

It’s long been known that nothing that is worthwhile is easy to do or easy to get.

“There is no free lunch” is an old saying that’s been around since the 1920’s depression era.

Art Williams is a self-made millionaire who, having worked as a high school coach, went into selling insurance. He decided one day to start his own insurance company. In the early years it is said that he was so terrified of starting out each morning that he’d throw-up from the stress of it.

But he overcame all that and eventually built one of the most successful businesses in America.

Notice I said “eventually“. That word can describe some of the longest timelines one could ever imagine. You start out doing something worthwhile and soon the ‘eventually’ kicks in. From then on it’s work and toil without much gratification.

That’s the way it’s been for every accomplished person since the beginning. I know, believe me, I know.

If you’re setting out to do something new try not to think of how long a word “eventually” will be for you. Your true story of accomplishment will be written in your tears and your brave moments when something finally clicked.

“Easy” never could make much of a compelling narrative in comparison to “tough” anyway. That story of accomplishment, created through the act of endurance, is your story. It belongs to you, and what it presents to you is the hard evidence that builds a strong irrefutable belief in you that says “yes”, you are worthy. That alone makes the journey worth it.

More power to you.

Quotius #4

Each week I intend to dispatch my pent-up creativity by creating a new version of something I call a “quotius”. (Learn about the genesis of it here.)

“I’m glad I did… I wish I had.”

I’ve been around long to enough to have learned that life is all about living with the outcomes of our earlier decisions. We become one of two people:
• Someone who has true satisfaction in their accomplishment
• Someone who has regret for things they could have done but never did

For example, once I started down this road of research and discovery concerning human self-belief, I got to a point where there was no turning back. Didn’t matter how hard or difficult it got I kept working at it.

I was hooked.

My siblings thought I was crazy. I wasn’t making much money so they looked justified in their assessment whereas I didn’t.

This went on for decades but I couldn’t shake the truth of the clear vision I had before me. Now every time I work with someone who’s doing H.E.R.O. and they begin to realize that same truth in themselves that’s when I feel validated for taking the path that I did.

Happens every time.

If I have any regrets at all it’s that I didn’t start sooner. This is no truer than in my attempt at becoming a masterful writer. I always thought it would be too much work and, since I’m a bit lazy and get distracted easily, the river of time continued to flow by and now at age sixty two I really need to just get on with it.

Although to this day I have not yet produced an actual book at least I do have one in the works now (and, yes, it is as tough as I thought when you first start doing it).

Years ago I was of the mind that believed that there was a lot of things I couldn’t do. That there are things that just can’t be done (at least by me).

  • I didn’t have the university degree
  • I didn’t have the money
  • I didn’t have the gift of oratory
  • I wasn’t an effective enough communicator
  • (and on and on…)

I’ve managed to perish most of those old ideas. They really aren’t that useful.

So now, as I start to see things beginning to move forward in my chosen business, I remain more convinced than ever that a deep self-belief powers good decisions.

And I have to say with the utmost certainty of a person who now feels more like a winner every day: “I’m glad I did.”

More power to you.
