Real estate sales and leadership trainer, Gary Pittard, says, “I have seen many people go broke because they spent more money than they earned. While their credit lasted, they pretended to be rich. But the day always comes when it’s time to pay the piper. Out the back door go the big spenders”.

One of them said something telling: “Work hard? That’s the entry level to success. If you want to be successful at anything, you have to work hard, but you must work hard on the right things“.
The world is full of hardworking plodders who never achieve any real material success in their lives. I am not saying that true success is all about material success, it is not, but let’s face it, life is so much better if you have some material wealth to contribute to your enjoyment of life.
Is anything holding you back?
Some people have a Poverty Consciousness. They cannot bring themselves to believe that they deserve any of life’s little luxuries. This is usually linked to low self-esteem.
Either one on their own is enough to put the brakes on anyone’s journey to greatness, but the two together make it even tougher to succeed.
Such people are most often the ones who never set goals, never formulate plans and, even if they do these things, do so half-heartedly so that when they inevitably fail to reach their ‘goals’ they can say, “See, I tried that but it didn’t work“.
Serious About Success
Over the years I have seen many people come and go from the real estate industry. I have seldom seen any who were serious about success over the long term. They allowed something to hold them back, but in many cases it was not the willingness to work hard.
I agree with my friend’s comment about hard work being the entry level to success. There is a saying that says, “Take an incompetent person and get that person to work hard. All you have is a hardworking idiot“. Harsh, I know, but oh so true.
Never let anyone put you down, convince you that you cannot succeed. You CAN succeed, but it takes more than hard work.
Design your own vision of success. Make it a complete picture – not only material wealth, but also the things that truly contribute to a full and happy life.
Now plan that future – to the decade, year, quarter, month, week and day. Set goals, write Affirmations, and now work hard, every day on actions that take you closer to your vision.
Success won’t just happen. And hard work won’t get you there UNTIL you know where ‘there’ is.
