with guts and hustle, anyone can build an uncommonly good life for himself.
#1 Watch Out For Opportunities
Time and chance happen to everyone! In other words, everyone gets their time and everyone gets their chance. Whether we accept, embrace or maximize these chances or opportunities is up to us. Kingsley was opportuned to get a copy of my WEBx home kit, he did not let the opportunity pass him by. He took it. Someone said ” don’t pray for opportunity, pray you will be ready when opportunity knocks”… opportunity to learn something new, opportunity to acquire a skill, to implement your skills, to invest, to grow, etc. POOR means Passing Over Opportunity Repeatedly.
#2 Study & Develop Yourself
Personal development gives the best Return on Investment (ROI). Kingsley did not just buy a copy of the DVD and dumped it, he studied the video. He said: “…. I watched the videos repeatedly…” He empowered himself. He made sure he acquire a skill. There is nothing like a skill. When the chips are down, you have something you can always fall back on. Empowering yourself is the key way to creating your own luck. Luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation.
#3 Take Action
#4 Leave Your Comfort Zone
#5 Hustle Smart
The journey to success requires work and hustle. Hard work does not kill. Like I tell my students, succeeding in web consulting is very simple, but not easy. If it was easy, everyone will be doing it. What they need is simple and not complicated. All they need is the ability to follow simple instructions and implement them.
#6 Give It Time
#8 Face Your FEARs
Fear is defined as False Evidence Appearing Real. If you can face your fears, success is inevitable. What we need is courage. Fear of failure, rejection, not being good enough, etc. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the conviction that something else is more important than your fear. You have to define that ‘something else’. For Kingsley, his ‘something else’ was food on his table, shelter over his head and ultimately financial independence.
#9 Build Systems
#10 Get Mentorship
Depending on your dreams, you need someone in your line of business, industry or niche who has walked the path you are going. In WEBx, we don’t joke with mentorship, and thats one of the reasons our students like Kingsley are doing very well. This is what I tell my new and prospective students.
