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!

Are YOU willing to do what UNsuccessful people WON’T do?

Are you willing to do what UNsuccessful people WON’T do?


Jim Rohn said “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.” The world is full of unsuccessful people who wish they had success in life. They wish for more money, more time freedom, a better life, etc. They wish they had what they want, but wish it was easy to have.


successful_people_do_whatJim Rohn so correctly pointed out that that’s not how life works. You can’t just wish you had an easy life with all the wealth and success you want, but little effort. It just doesn’t work that way.


People who are successful have done what others were unwilling to do. They spent the time learning what they needed to know. They spent the effort reading the books, listening to the trainings, writing the blogs, making the videos, etc. They did what successful people do and they became successful.


“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.”


Are you willing to do what successful people do? Are you willing to get up early and stay up late? Are you willing to produce the content when you don’t feel like working on it? Running a successful business is work. There’s no way around that. It takes effort and work to succeed in business or any successful endeavour.


Are you willing to turn off the TV and write the blog, etc. Or you willing to take that walk, or do the exercises when you feel so tired you don’t want to move? Are you willing to eat the salad when you want a bowl of ice cream? Most of us know enough about health to know what we should do to be healthy. Are we willing to do it?


Being successful at business is not that complicated either. If you don’t know what you should do to success, keep reading this and other blogs on the subject. Succeeding in online business is simple, but it is hard work. You have to be willing to do the work of successful people to be successful at online business.


So success comes down, not to being an especially intelligent person, not having more money or resources than others, not being better than others; Success comes down to DOING…. Doing the things that bring success. Doing the things that Successful People Do. Being willing to do the things that unsuccessful people won’t do. It’s that simple… yet, it’s that hard.


Are you willing to do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do?

I certainly hope you are. Join me in doing what needs done to be successful.


Here’s to our Success!
