Destination BIGG success
BIGG success is a destination. You create a vision of the life you want. Then you start driving to it.
Hour by hour…
Day by day…
Week by week…
Month by month…
Quarter by quarter…
Year by year…
…you strive for BIGG success. More specifically, you push to get to the next milestone.
The ups and downs of BIGG success
But it can be challenging to get from where you are to where you want to be.
They’re all part of the journey.
The ups are easy. You can do no wrong. You are invincible. The world is your oyster.
The down times? Well, the only easy thing is quitting.
The high cost of quitting
Yet quitting isn’t easy. Because you have to live with it for the rest of your life.
You will always wonder what might have been. You can’t bear the thought.
It’s the reason you are an entrepreneur. Failure was acceptable. Not trying – well, just the thought of not going for it caused that feeling in the pit of your stomach.
Yes, it was scary. Yes, people said you wouldn’t make it.
But you didn’t care. You had to go. You had to try. You could feel in the depths of your soul that you were put on this earth to do something special. And by gosh, you were going to do it.
So you did.
But today sucked. Again.
You feel like you’ve been hit by a truck. You’re exhausted. You’re discouraged.
And it would be so easy to give up.
But you know you won’t. Because you’re a BIGG goal-getter. So you have to see this thing through. Because it’s what you were meant to do.
The victory is in the challlenge
And then you realize something important…you already are a BIGG success.
You can’t control the result. You can only control the activity.
And today – just like yesterday and every day before – you gave it everything you had. So you’re a BIGG success.
Because, as George Moriarty said, “Who can ask more a man than giving all within his span? Giving all, it seems to me, is not so far from victory.”
Then it hits you – the victory is in the challenge!
BIGG success is a journey
Sure, BIGG success is a destination. But it’s also a journey.
And every single day, you’re learning new things and developing new skills. It’s growth – one of the five elements of BIGG success along with money, time, work and play.
Money and time are your two resources; work and play your two opportunities. Growth bridges the chasm.
Growth starts as an opportunity. You’re capitalizing on it. You’re growing.
By growing – by gaining new knowledge and insight, by adding skills and experience – you’re developing the skills to get past ANY problem you face.
Growth is becoming a resource. By discovering how to overcome any problem, you’re also learning how to triumph over EVERY problem you will ever face.
Yes, you WERE a BIGG success today. And Destination BIGG success is just around the corner!
