Forget about easy success. There’s no such thing. Even if you can gain some success quickly somehow, it will most likely be short lived. If you want to be successful, then the best thing you can do is to realize and accept that true success is going to take a ton of work. How much work? More than you probably think. How much time? More than you are planning. When you can accept this reality, you will be able to free yourself from the average way of thinking.
When you know you’re about to face a tough opponent, you will be more prepared and will play at a much higher level compared to an easy opponent. By getting rid of the silly idea that success is easy, you will be able to approach your goals with more focus and force because you know that’s what it’s going to take. As long as you’re stuck in the quick results mentality, you will continue to get discouraged every time the results don’t show up fast enough. If this all sounds like too much work for you, then success isn’t for you.
