Do you feel like you’ve hit a wall?

Are you feeling stuck? Do you feel like you aren’t able to move? Need to get out of your own way? Does something happen where it seems like the universe is against you and you just can’t get ahead? Do you feel like you’re hitting a wall day after day, month after month? You’re not alone. This happens to everyone before big success.

Here are 3 principles that will carry you to where you want to go:

Principle #1:

Starting from the bottom isn’t a deficit, it’s a gift

The greatest turning point in my life, both professionally and personally, was when I stopped casually waiting for success and instead started to approach it as a duty, obligation, and responsibility. My life was a pitiful mess—I had been aimless, with no purpose or focus. But even the most fortunate and well-connected people among us have done something to put themselves in the right place at the right time in front of the right people. Luck is just the byproduct of those who take the most action

Principe #2

Never trust your talent, simply outwork everyone

I have been studying success for the better part of three decades and have been asked hundreds of times in seminars and interviews, “What is the one quality/action/mindset that will ensure a person creates extraordinary success?” This has nagged at me in creating success in my own life as well. I don’t have some gene that others don’t; I definitely haven’t been lucky. I wasn’t born into wealth or connections to the ‘right’ people. Looking back, I see the most consistent element with any success I’ve achieved is putting forth 10 times the effort that others around me did.

Principle #3:

No matter how it may seem, no one has control of your life but you

Good health is a commission that you must manage as you would your business, by eating healthy and exercising. If you take massive action on destructive habits but less effort with eating right and exercise, swap it. Spend less time partying and more time networking; less time at bars and eating fast food and more time nurturing your health like you would a growing business.

“Previously, I had a limiting belief about side projects/passive income being able to generate so much without it requiring so many hours or even just the blind fear of it just being too good to be true. I was afraid to scale it for that false reason. After 10X GrowthCon and some accountability from a buddy I met there, that side project grew from grossing $1.5k to over $15k a month, simply because I began to think bigger and knew it was fine to do so. It only took a month to scale up adding some simple processes in that I was already capable of implementing. Thanks 10X for teaching the importance of thinking BIG.” — Josh Spooner

Josh attended an event where he went from making $1,500 a month to over $15,000 a month. He got around the right people and reached for something he didn’t have before.

Are you ready for your new life of success?

To get past a wall, get around the right people.

Be great,
