The One Secret All Successful People Know


My Unfair Advantage


You have likely seen a number of people experiencing a great deal of success, even though they are not perfect. If you are not aware of it, then you need to start taking notice of people who are successful, and/or present themselves as a success (remember that perception can become reality).

The secret that successful people know is this:

Doing the work, and getting it done, as imperfect as it might be, creates success. TAKE ACTION!

There are many famous quotes that tell us this, so let us look at some of them, and think about what they are really saying.

1. “Hustle beats talent when talent doesn’t hustle.” – Ross Simmonds

Essentially this quote means that if you do things, you will make more money, or be more successful than someone with a bunch of talent, who does nothing. You have to be willing to tell people about what you are doing, if you want to be successful and make an impact. You also have to be willing to get yourself dirty, and actually work.

2. “What you lack in talent can be made up with desire, hustle and giving 110% all the time.” – Don Zimmer

You can see the truth in this by looking at some of the people who are tops in the entertainment industry, especially pop music. Amy Grant, a singer-songwriter who has had more than ten top ten hits, once said of her success, that she just took her “three-octave” voice and got out there and did it.

3. “The hustle brings the dollar. The experience brings the knowledge. The persistence brings success.” – Ross Simmonds

As a digital strategist and internet marketer, Ross is big about the hustle. This is because he knows the truth. No one knows what they are doing, until they do it, and have experience doing it. The trick is to keep going, even when you feel like a fraud. Only successful people keep going, while everyone else just gives up, or never even starts to begin with.

Nobody Is Perfect

Just like being “the one who does things”, and “gets things done” creates success, the opposite will always create failure. The thing that all entrepreneurs should fear, is getting all wrapped up in perfectionism.

You have to realize that no one is perfect. Not you, not them, not anyone. Everyone has flaws, but that does not matter. You can create, and still be flawed. You can become successful, while you are learning, as long as you keep going, you will become a success.

As Theodore Roosevelt once said: “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

Are you going to try to succeed, starting now? Stop waiting for the perfect moment, if this is holding you back. Stop waiting until you know everything. You will never know everything. Perfection does not exist in reality. You want to deliver high-quality, and accurate information to your audience, or a good product that can help others, but you do not have to be perfect. Just do it!
