Be Dedicated to Your Dreams to Succeed

Jul 23, 2008
I would have to say that success doesn't come easy. Let's face it - it is a lot of work. But if you are dedicated to your dreams, you too can succeed in life.

Now, I am not trying to be somber, but it is the truth. For me, the road was seven years, with lots of challenges along the way. Though I am not at the point where I would finally like to be, I am getting really close. Each day I am getting closer to where I want to be and that is the right path for me.

The biggest challenge for me was to stay positive and persevere. There was no magic formula on how to succeed, or some instruction book to guide me along the way. In fact, there were times that I just wanted to quit, but I just couldn't give up on my dream - I didn't want to have to work until sixty five.

Though I failed many times, I was dedicated to succeeding. I had a vision of where I wanted to be in ten years that included the money I had, the car I was going to drive, and the amount of money that I had in my bank account. It was this concrete goal that I had in my minds' eye that helped me to make choices each day that took me closer to my dream.

The biggest challenge that I faced on my road to success was convincing my wife that it was going to be a possibility. She couldn't see the money that we were going to make - all she saw was the money going out of the bank account each month. She told me many times that I should just get a job and give up, but that was not an option for me.

Let me tell you - if your spouse does not support your efforts, you will even have more problems. But, I am happy to report, six years into it, she finally understood that I could make money. All it took was me to buy groceries with the money that I made online.

After that challenge was resolved, thing got easier. Though I wasn't making the piles of money that I wanted, each month, the business was making more and more money, and I knew that I was on the path to success.

Finally, six months ago, I was able to leave my real job and focus on the business. I finally felt free and like my dreams were within my grasp. Thankfully, being dedicated to my goals allowed me to get to this point. If you would like to succeed in life, be sure to be dedicated to your dreams and your time will come.
