In the next few days I will be sharing with you Practical Ways to Become Wildly Successful!
Here is my first one:
1) Let go of the idea that all it will take a magic pill.
It seems like in today’s world, we are all looking for that magic pill.
That one program that will make us automatically rich at the touch of a button. Or that diet that will easily make us super-model thin. Or the exercise video that will give us rock-hard abs in only minutes a day. Or that curriculum that will easily make our children advance two grade levels.
The problem is, these are delusions.
I know, we all want to avoid the pain. We all want it to be effortless.
But anything worth having is worth fighting for. It’s worth the pain. In fact, without going through the pain, we will not truly come to appreciate our successes!
Believe me, I’ve wanted to quit time after time. Perceived failures have led me to want to throw in the towel sometimes and just walk away, even recently.
Some days I have cried in agony and could only sit before my Heavenly Father, soaking up His presence.
But then, a little sunshine breaks through and I get a fresh perspective. God keeps encouraging me onward and upward!
I heard it said once that, “It took me 10 years to be an overnight success.”
Everyday my job is to plant seeds and trust that God is going to bring the harvest in His time. It really is as simple as living out what He has called me to do on a daily basis.
And when it comes to your branding, there is no magic formua. It takes work, thought and preparation. You will not be able to find a cheap and free logo that fits your business message perfectly and connects to your target audience. There is no magic pill in graphic design or marketing, either!
Because truthfully, you get what you pay for. If you expect your prospects to invest in your business as customers, then you need to invest in your brand. And that’s going to raise the value of your products or services, which will positively impact your bottom line.
