Oh Joy

good things come...
18 Feb 2014

Good things come to those who work hard.

As a business owner, I get lots of emails from people looking to start a business or pursue a dream of some kind. I try and give the most constructive advice I can or direct them to one of my books. Because of the ways in which we often see success and fame these days (ie. reality tv), it sometimes gives the perception that you can make it big without doing much work or by getting lucky. Sure, sometimes a little bit luck helps some people. But one thing I emphasize over and over again is that very few things come easy. You never realize how hard people work to achieve their goals behind the scenes. And I promise you, every successful person out there that you admire works their a$$ off. You have to work hard to get what you want in life. And if you work hard, if you're passionate about what you do, and if you are kind to people along the way, it pays off in more ways that you can imagine.
