Have you struggled to reach the success you’ve wanted? Have you wondered why others seem to be able to reach their success when you can’t seem to reach yours? Have you wondered if something’s wrong with you?
Some people feel that those who do become successful must have an advantage that they don’t have. Perhaps the successful have more access to money. Or they have more talents and skills. But is that really the reason some succeed and others don’t?
No; typically those who do succeed are not somehow more wealthy or gifted or skilled than those who don’t succeed. If you have not succeeded, it’s probably not because you don’t have the abilities to succeed. You have what it takes to succeed.
The issue is typically not the lack of abilities; the issue more often, is lack of desire. One must have the desire to reach their potential in order to reach their potential: in order to reach the success they are wanting.
As John Maxwell so aptly put it: “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.”
With a strong enough desire to reach success, one will find a way to learn the skills and develop the abilities needed to get there. As some have put it: one must have a “big enough why.” Of course, along with the big enough why or desire, one must put forth the effort to learn whatever it takes to succeed.
When someone has a strong enough desire to reach success, they will keep working at it UNTIL they achieve the success they are reaching for. They will read the success books UNTIL they grow in skills and traits of success. They will listen to self-development trainings UNTIL they improve themselves. They will not give up UNTIL they succeed.
The differences between successful people and unsuccessful people is not in their abilities, but in their desires.
“Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” John Maxwell
