Most people hear this and wonder what does it take? What do I have to do? But they’ve missed the whole point.
The point is not doing what it takes – being successful is all about the willingness to do what it takes. It’s a mindset. Just be willing. It’s not about learning the steps to success, or about who you know, or even about the process of achieving success. It’s about your mind – your attitude – being willing to do what it takes.*
This is the essence of what makes successful people different from regular people. They have no fear — they do not judge. They see an opportunity, and they go for it. They are willing to take risks, they are willing to look beyond negativity. They are, simply, willing.
For these people, success will come to them. It’s not because they are just lucky, or work harder than others, they are open minded and willing to seize an opportunity that others won’t even see, because they are too busy doing what they do.
Remember in the Wizard of Oz, when the Good Witch tells Dorothy at the end that she had the power to go home the whole time, she just had to be ready to see it? It’s the same with success. We all have the power to be successful, we just have to open our minds to it.
Willingness isn’t something you can learn. You get it by having it. Open your mind to it.
Be open to possibilities, without judgement, reservation or refusal. Or fear. Be willing, and you will experience an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing or accomplishment, otherwise known as a “miracle”. An open mind is what creates miracles.
Real miracles are not magical or mystical, they happen everyday to real people. Like the man with one leg who ran from one coast of Canada to the other on one leg – he was willing to succeed – and so he did.
Open your mind. Create your own miracles. Be ready to succeed.
