Destiny can be compared to any other element on earth that support human survival, such as money,water, air, among others. All these elements are neither bad nor good, they stand on a neutral ground. Whoever handles them will decide whether to use them to support or take life. Believe it or not, no one in this small blue planet was destined to be a failure.
Every human being was given the freedom of choice. When you wake up in the morning you have the choice to go to work or stay in bed. Of course you will have a lot to explain to your boss and if you get fired it is also your choice to look for another job or stay at home. It gets worse as a freelancer since you can hop freely from one client to the other or wake up one morning and decide to quit. May be you think is because you have bills to pay but you always have a choice. Therefore it is all up you to work hard or not.
What if we didn’t have a choice? Probably we would all be successful or extremely poor. Imagine a point where, if you didn’t manage your time well something tragic will happen in the next minute. This will force us to always keep working and be persistence in what we are doing. In this context, whether we like it or not, we will always be successful in whatever we choose to do. This is because there will be greater things to be afraid of apart from the fear of taking risks and cost of success.
Everything has a price and you always have a choice to work hard and get enough cash to run a successful business. You also have the choice to stay lukewarm and keep living a life where you hustle for house rent, food and other basic needs leave alone enough money to start a decent business.People with the following traits will always be heart broken in their quest for their dream destiny. Do you find yourself having any of these drawback symptoms? 1. Risk phobia“The cost of success is taking risks, if you take a risk and fall, do not give up yet, most of the people who succeeded fell once or even more before they went big”
So you got this awesome opportunity and you are not sure whether you will get back your money. You have done an in detail calculation and found that the writing account you are about to buy will give you great returns. Spotting an opportunity, planning, launching and managing it, can be compared to making one step ahead. However, if you chicken out that things may not turn out the way you plan them, it will be like making two steps behind. Maybe you saw a post somewhere which discouraged you and got afraid of negative returns. You will never know what the future beholds until you get there. If you decide to take a risk and fall, do not give up yet, most of the people who succeeded fell once or even more before they got to where they are. The currency of success is taking risks, no matter how good your plan is, if you can’t make a decision to take a risk and execute it, you will never reach your destiny. 2. Cost phobia“If you are afraid to dish out money to buy that account, go to that training or buy resources to begin your business venture, you will find yourself going in circles and never reach success.”
I had the privilege of visiting the geothermal power plant project which began early last year and I was amazed how those guys were organized. The plan was to generate electricity from an underground gas geyser located deep in the jungle. By the time I was paying them a visit they hadn’t even began drilling the geyser and they were far from starting. The engineers were busy building roads, putting up communication masts, electricity and water supply. Technically all they needed to generate the power was pipes to channel out gas to turbines and cables to transmit the electricity to the city. However they needed the road to transport equipment and materials and mobile masts to coordinate operations anyway. All these miscellaneous activities costs money and if the power company was afraid of such costs, they wouldn’t have reached their goal.
Therefore, if you are afraid to dish out money to buy that account, go to that training or buy resources to begin your business venture, you will find yourself going in circles and never reach success.3. Bad timing “There is nothing like better late than never in business. If you can’t make there on time, be there early.“
The last time I checked, to succeed in business or any venture, timing is everything. Whether you are launching a new product or looking for a new venture or market, you can`t afford to show up late. For instance, if you are a new writer, you should ensure you have enough training during the low season so that you can be able to deliver when the peak season hits. That also applies to the rest of the ventures which needs you as an entrepreneur to prepare early. There is nothing like better late than never in business. If you can’t make there on time, be there early.4. Knowledge poverty "Limited knowledge is like clinging to a sinking ship where you don’t have enough resources to seal the leak holes. “
You may have the drive, the talent and the passion but if you don’t have the detailed know how, you will keep going round the little knowledge you have. To succeed and sore to great heights in what you are doing, no matter how established you are, you need some good training. School never ends and telling yourself that you have all the knowledge required to reach your destiny will be lying to yourself. Whether you are an academic writer or a blogger or whichever your career is, you will need to at least take courses or attend seminars to sharpen your skills more. We are living in a dynamic world and it is not advisable to cling to a piece of information without expanding it. Limited knowledge is like clinging to a sinking ship where you don’t have enough resources to seal the leak holes. 5. Above all learn to network“Go out, meet clients and know what they want, find competitors know what they do.”
I can’t find a way to emphasize this point enough. Although it is your life and destiny, you need to team up with other people who have the same thoughts as you. Doing this you will be killing two birds with one stone, since, you will be in a position to touch someone`s life and reach your destiny at the same time. Therefore, go out, meet a client and know what they want, find a competitor know what they do. This will give you a clue of what is required out there in the field you are specializing in.
