At some point, everyone starts from somewhere on the road to success and work their way through to the top. There has never been a person that won in advance without them playing and making the necessary sacrifice to get to where they are now in their journey. Everyone start somewhere.
A lot of people ask how long does it take to reach the place where I can finally say I am successful, but nobody knows of this answer. We are different with different skill sets and faces and we all have our time to reach our destination.
The truth is, it won’t come early and there’s nothing like an overnight success in life. Everyone that looks like an overnight has been putting in the work behind the scene and gone through so many trials and failures that you can never imagine or wrap your head around
Life is a constant journey of up and down and the road to success is uncertain. Nobody knows 100% they find on the road to success neither do they know they will succeed but it is that faith that keeps us going and never stopping no matter the obstacles we meet on our way.
It is not about asking yourself how long will take on the road to success or trying to know what’s the price you have to pay for being an entrepreneur, it is about understanding that on the road to success there’s no destination.
You don’t get to a point where you say you have finally reached that height of success and this is where success ends for you. Nobody gets to that point, because immediately you reach the level you have been gunning for another level opens up with its challenges
Life is an episode of a rollercoaster ride as long as you are devoted to bettering yourself and wanting to change your life.
Worrying about the time you get to spend on the road to success is useless and it signifies that you are not truly made for the journey you are about to embark on.
Mistakes we make on the road to success
One mistake a lot of people are falling into now is comparing themselves with other people. The internet has given us the opportunity where everyone can come together without any boundaries and find themselves doing the same thing.
This opportunity we have had has made us lose the sense of the time and sacrifice the other person has put in into their craft.
Because we can interact with them and see the things they are doing we think we deserve whatever they have. We think we deserve their audience and the love they get online without putting in the work they have put in over the years.
You don’t try to compare your chapter one with someone else chapter 10 and then wonder why things are not working for you. Doing things will only make reject your process on the road to success
Whoever you are comparing yourself to have been faithful throughout their process and have learned and got the networks you haven’t got, their journey on the road to success has been filled with toil, failures, and heartbreaks. You don’t know what this person has got to go through while trying to make something of themselves
Instead of feeling entitled you should be inspired and motivated by their progress and their consistency. The fact they are doing what you are doing now and getting paid from it shows that with commitment you can be in that position in a couple of years to come.
Patience is the key to get whatever. Don’t let jealousy and envy deprive you of what you need to know on the road to success. You need the patience to survive on the road to success because nothing comes easy and the road will always test your grit and see if you are up for the challenge.
