Reasons Come First, Answers Come Second.

Reasons Come First, Answers Come Second.

 

What are your reasons for achieving success? Do you have reasons for achieving success? Or, do you have ENOUGH reasons to achieve success?

 

Ask yourself, “Why do I want to achieve success?” What is the real motivating reason for success? What really motivates you? Is it getting out of debt and financial freedom your Reason? Is providing a better life for your family your Reason? Is being able to travel, or being able to give to a charity your Reason? Why do you want the success you are seeking?

 

Jim Rohn wrote,

“Reasons come first, answers come second.”

 

He discussed how life tends to hide the answers to how to achieve our goals. We may want to achieve success, but not know how to go about getting there. Life seems to confuse the issue and hide what steps to take to get to our goals.

 

Jim Rohn explained how when you have Reason, you will find the answers on how to achieve your goals. He went on to say:

 

“When you know what you want and you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it.”

 

This is saying that if you have enough Reasons you will find the Answers. If you can’t figure out how to achieve success, it’s probably time to go back to your why; go back to your reasons. If you have enough reasons, you will do whatever it takes to achieve success. You’ll find a way to learn the steps the need to be taken. You’ll find the means to take the steps needed for success.

 

Jim Rohn wrote about his mentor, early in his career, telling him

“If you had enough motivation you could do incredible things; you have enough intelligence but not enough reasons.”

 

That statement applies to each of us. We have enough intelligence to accomplish our dreams. The problem is when we don’t have enough motivation; when we don’t have enough reasons to push us forward to success.

 

So a major key to success is to have enough reasons; to have enough motivation to do what it takes to learn what needs done and to do what needs done for success.

 

Here’s to your Success!

The act of taking the first step is what separates the winners from the losers

The act of taking the first step is what separates the winners from the losers. ? Brian Tracy

 

Want to be a winner? Want to be a success in your online business? If you’re reading this blog, then the answer to those questions would probably be YES! You want to achieve the dreams you have for your life. You want to be a success in your online business, or whatever financial endeavor you are working towards.

 

Quite often the thing that determines whether you’ll be a winner or a loser is just taking the first step. Many people have hopes of creating a business. Many wish they were financially independent. But “hoping” and “wishing” won’t get you to the success you want.

 

Brian Tracy said it so well:

“The act of taking the first step is what separates the winners from the losers.”

 

You have to take that First Step! You have to get started. If a person doesn’t take that first step to get started, they certainly will never reach their goals for success. You must decide what you want in life; then plan out how to get there; then get started doing what needs done to get there. Only by taking that first step, will you ever make process towards your goals.

 

Once you’ve made that first step, then determine to continue making the steps forward necessary to achieve your goals. Part of planning out your goals should be to decide what actions or steps need to be taken to get where you want to be.


If it’s building a business with a blog, the some of the regular action steps is simply writing the posts. If the plan involves regular videos on Youtube, then the action steps are to produce the video. The key is to know what steps need done and get started.

 

Success is not restricted to those with high IQ or high skill level, etc. Success is available to any of us… IF we take the first step and then don’t stop moving forward.
