To Succeed – you must have the Will to Succeed

To Succeed, one must have the Will to Succeed!

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” ~ Vince Lombardi

o Succeed, one must have the Will to Succeed

Vince Lombardi is considered by many to be among the best and most successful football coaches in NFL history. He was well known as a coach who could lead his team to success.

Chances are you found this site because you are looking for ways to achieve success in online business or in life. You have shown the initiative and the will to find help to achieve that success. Having the will to succeed is what Vince Lombardi considered the missing ingredient which many lack. That missing ingredient that’s needed for true success.

 

Success…. Not because of Strength.

Success is not achieved because of greater strength, as Vinci Lombardi implies. Strength can be measured in physical abilities and skill. Or it can be measured in financial strength.

A successful person should be working to increase their physical abilities and skills. They should be taking care of their bodies and increasing in health. They should be growing their skills and abilities so they can achieve more. A successful person should also be working to grow in their financial strength. They should be working to increase financial wealth.

But to become a successful person, one does not have to start out with great strength, whether in physical abilities, skills, or finances. It doesn’t take starting out with great strength to become greatly successful.

Success… Not because of Knowledge.

Success is not achieved because of great knowledge either. For example, to achieve success in online marketing, one doesn’t have to know a lot about online marketing to get started towards success. To start building a blog, one doesn’t have to have a lot of knowledge about building a blog. The key is to be willing to grow in the knowledge needed as you progress.

A successful person should be growing in knowledge continually. A successful person should be reading books and articles. They should be listening to trainings, attending seminars, and seeking understanding from those who know more than they do.

A successful person doesn’t have to start out with great knowledge; but they need to be willing to seek out the knowledge to be successful in whatever area they are working in to achieve success.

Success… Because of WILL!

Success is achieved, largely because of the Will to achieve that success. As Vince Lombardi implied, the reason some people don’t achieve the success they seek, is often because of the Lack of Will.

Will is the desire to achieve. It is the determination to do what it takes to achieve your dreams and goals. To be successful one must have the will to succeed; the determination and dedication to never give up no matter what the obstacles they face.

To succeed, one needs to have the vision to see their success and then have the determination to take whatever steps to get to that destination.

Success is largely determined by the amount of will, or determination a person has to succeed. It’s determined by the will to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to achieve success.

As Vince Lombardi put it,

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” ~ Vince Lombardi

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” Arthur Ashe

 

Starting an online business can seem to be a daunting task for some. How do you start? What do you do first? Who do you trust?

Start Where You Are

Sometimes the idea of being successful at online marketing can seem unachievable. It can seem like just too much to do for your circumstances. You may feel you just don’t have the time or the skills needed to succeed.

Let me assure you it is achievable. Anything you believe you can do, you can do. It will take time. It will take effort. But it is achievable.

I believe Arthur Ashe gave the formula for success in his quote: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” By following this simple formula you can make progress towards the success you dream of.

 

Start where you are.

No matter where you find yourself in life you can start where you are. There are plenty of stories of even homeless and forsaken individuals who started where they were and used what resources they had available to build their dream.

You may not have the skills needed to write a blog, or produce videos, or whatever you need to do to build an online business. But you can learn those skills. You can find the help to teach those skills. You can find the motivation to continue on.

If you’re starting out with little skills in these areas, it will take extra work, but it will be worth it in the long run. One day you will be the one helping others learn the skills you don’t have today.

You may not have the financial means to spend much right now. Fine. Utilize the free sources available to get started towards your dream.

No matter where you are: Start! Start where you are.

 

Use what you have.

Where ever you find yourself today; start. Start where you are and use what you have available to you. There are many free resources available to assist you in learning and building your online success.

Use what skills and talents you have. With online marketing, it’s often easier to market in a niche that you already have an interest in or have skills in.

For example if you will be starting a blog, it’s often easier to write about a niche you already have an interest in. It makes your online business more fun. You may already have ready knowledge you can write about on a subject, or know where to easily find information. This would show you as the expert on that subject which would make others more ready to trust you and follow your recommendations.

The key is to use what you already have. You probably have the resources needed to get started, or access to those resources. Again, you can even start with free resources to help you get started towards success. Check out my Resources tab at the top of the page.

 

Do what you can.

The last point is about actually doing. Do what you can. Take action where you are, with what you have available. You must take action in order to move forward. If you never take action, you will remain where you are, or worse yet, regress.

Jim Rohn put it this way; “Make measurable progress in reasonable time.” We must take action and make progress. If your situation dictates that you progress slowly for now, then find. Progress slowly… But Progress! Move forward! Take action! Do what you can.

You must be a person of discipline and action and do what you can where you are with what you have. Make continual progress towards your goal of success.

 

So follow the advice of Arthur Ashe: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
