And even though you know there’s no such thing as a secret to success, a part of you still hopes it DOES exist, right?
Because if it exists, there’s a perfectly good reason why you don’t have what you want yet:
There’s a SECRET step or ingredient that you don’t know of yet.
What a relief! There’s nothing wrong with you. All you have to do is find that secret!
That’s not going to happen.
Because there IS no secret to success.
There are NO 6 steps to 6-figures, or 13 steps to an everlasting happy life, or 36 steps to world domination.
There IS NO magic pill, silver bullet, golden ticket, or secret to success or anything else you desire.
And that is GOOD news.
It means that right now, with everything you now know, and with everything you’re capable of today, you have EVERYTHING you need to create more of what you want in your business and life.
There are some elements that are part of achieving any goal, of course.
In a nutshell, these are:
#1 Be clear on what you want and why that matters.
#2 Be committed to manifesting this.
#3 Do what it takes to manifest this.
Both the INNER work (dealing with your fears, doubts and insecurities. Learning what you need to learn. Unlearning what you no longer need. Etc.)
And the OUTER work (taking the actions you’re required to take – whether it scares you or not, feels comfortable or not, and whether you feel like it or not. If you know you have to do it, you do it.)
#4 Listen to your intuition. It ALWAYS tells you what your next best step is. (And then TAKE that step – see #3.)
#5 Don’t give up. Keep going until you’ve reached your goal.
That’s basically it.
And of course, this is also why people keep hoping that there IS a secret.
Because it sounds easier than doing things that scare you or leaping into unknown territory.
Because it sounds easier than to keep going, day after day, without knowing if and when your actions will finally pay off.
That’s why people keep searching and waiting until they feel ready, instead of taking action NOW.
But waiting won’t get you anywhere.
If you don’t sit down to write something, you’ll never end up with a book or even an article.
If you don’t quit your job at some point, you’ll never have your own business.
If you never take action to create your first online program, you’ll never have an online program.
Right now, you already KNOW at least ONE step you have to take to manifest one of your goals.
TAKE that step.
You don’t have to know all the steps to accomplish your dream.
All you have to do is take the step that’s in front of you right now.
And keep doing that until you’ve reached your goal.
If you really want there to be a secret to success, that’s your secret right there.
What’s the step you KNOW you have to take right now?
