How To Get Really Good at Anything
I have a secret recipe when it comes to being successful.
I’ve been using this method my entire life and, honestly, it has never failed me once.
Now, I assure you, I’ve had my fair share of failures. Too many to even recall actually. (I won’t even get into the first time I tried to have sex. Yes, you read the word “tried” correctly)
See, it’s very easy to get caught up in the fear of failure and the uncertainty of not knowing what a certain outcome is going to be in any given situation. This fear is amplified when you are venturing into an area of life you’ve never been before.
But what if I told you that I have a system that is absolutely fail proof when it comes to achieving a goal? I’ve used this strategy to go from small feats, like teaching myself how to play guitar, all the way to starting my own business and becoming the youngest personal development coach in my area, speaking for established universities and top-level companies.
That said, how much money would you pay for one golden nugget of incomparable wisdom that could change the course of your life forever and help you accomplish everything you ever set out to do?
I’m feeling beyond generous tonight so, I’m going to give it to you for free.
What I’m about to share with you is not sexy. It is not in the camp of false hopes or quick fixes. It will not let you take the easy way out. Your jaw will not drop when you read the words.
However, what I can guarantee you is that if you take what I share with you to heart, and you choose to follow this methodology, you will be more successful than you ever thought possible.
The secret to getting really good at anything is…..
Keep. Fucking. Doing. It.
I know what you’re thinking. “This guy sucks. What a shitty tip.”
If you feel that way, I get it. I understand your underwhelm. I felt the same way when I first heard this. But this is a lesson that gets severely underestimated and overlooked for the promise of a short-term success or immediate results.
To continue pursuing something against all odds and challenges may be the hardest success strategy you ever utilize but it is, bar none, the most effective.
Think of it this way. Michael Jordan didn’t read a book on how to be the best basketball player that ever lived. Mark Zuckerberg didn’t build Facebook and retire. J.K. Rowling didn’t stop writing the Harry Potter series after her first three chapters were rejected 12 times. All of them had to practice their craft, day in and day out to achieve what they’ve achieved.
The secret to achieving massive success in life is so simple, but it is in no way easy.
You will be beaten down. You will have rough days. You may struggle to get by from time to time. You may have to let go of certain aspects of your life that have been with you for years. You may hit rock bottom. You may have to take a hiatus from pursuing what you want to achieve.
Oh, and if you think you can find a strategy that will somehow avoid failure, you need to get real with yourself and quick.
You’re going to fail at some point, I guarantee you. But failure a great thing because you’re going to learn something invaluable that only failure can teach you: you will not break.
If there were ever anything that will prove to be true for the rest of time, it would be that steadfast perseverance in the pursuit of your goal will bring you success.
Still not buying it?
Show me one person that gave up and became successful. In the entire history of the world, find me one.
Successful people don’t just happen. They succeed on purpose and that purpose is to be everything they can be for what they love doing every single day.
It’s easy to get impatient and frustrated. It’s easy to give up when you feel discouraged. It’s common to call it quits when you’re running on no sleep, no money, and little to no success. It’s so challenging to look all of these obstacles in the face and say “Fuck off, I got this.”
But you DO got this!
I encourage you to go dominate your goals. Smash the shit out of ’em, make a new one, repeat. Let no person, whether you or another, tell you that you can’t succeed.
If you keep going, if you stay committed, if you roll with the failures, if you shrug off the haters and the negative self-talk, I promise you…..you will be successful.
So go keep doing what you’re doing. And if you don’t love what you’re currently doing, do something else. Just, please, Keep. Fucking. Doing. It.
