I found myself in the past, being nervous about trying new things in life. Not only professionally, but personally as well. I also remember that’s when that bell went off in my head. Every time I did something different or new, I was happier AND more successful with whatever I was pursuing. So I started thinking about this in the shower today, along with trying to remember to buy more soap a Sams Club next week haha….and figured I’d blog about it. The more you get out of your Comfort Zone, the happier you become AND the more successful you will be.
Now before you think “Oh wow Dan, do I have to become a public speaker or go door to door hocking my latest product?” No. “Do I have to go up to that stranger I think is attractive?” No, no you don’t. But if it scares the shit out of you or makes you nervous, then ask yourself “Would it make me happier?” “Can it make me more successful?” “Can it help my life in any way?” if the answer yes, then yeah, DO THAT! We all know we judge each other….you might be doing it now, reading this and thinking, “This dude is F$%ked”….but I don’t care. I say and do things that I think people need to hear, not what they want to hear. I have a fairly small group of friends that aren’t afraid to hear it straight and they sure as hell tell me when I need to hear it too.
I will put this in perspective for you though. I’m not some asshole out here ranting and raving about shit (yeah I could be, but then I’d be alone and I do like “some” people in my life haha) I don’t walk up to strangers and give them advice they didn’t ask for. But…if you’re my friend or business acquaintance or subscriber or follower…..expect to hear the real shit, not some filtered, kid gloves bullshit you want to hear. I post motivational shit because I believe in what I post or I like it. I’m not doing it for an “atta boy”. I’m doing it because either people need to hear it OR I believe it will help trigger something in someone and give them that little kick in the pants they might need (I think they call it tough love) 😀
About 15 yrs ago after beating cancer I became not only happier (not just for obvious being alive reasons), but because I became in charge of me! I can now happily look in the mirror and say…..”hey buddy…..you’re the guy in control of what happens today….good, bad or indifferent”. If you had a shit day…that’s on you….if you have a great day, also on you, congrats! I also admit I have a fairly “easy life” (being single and living alone) because many of you struggle with all that outside noise. Full disclosure as well…..being adopted, Single Moms are my heroes (no offense to Single Dads).
I do promise you this…….as soon as you get “rid of the noise” in your world, including all the negative forces AND dead energy sucking so-called friends, things will snowball. Doors will open, barriers will be broken down and success levels you hadn’t even begun to think were possible, now are. All thanks to your new attitude and passionate personality.
I love affiliate marketing and I’m going to being making $10K a month someday in the not so distant future which will give me the ability to quit my dreaded “day job”. Then I’ll have the freedom to travel more, “preach more” and help others be successful along the way……which makes me happier!
All my best for success and good health always……until next time.
