If going into business is not as hard as they say, why doesn't everyone have their own businesses?
If blogging is so easy, why is my blog still not successful?
If nothing is impossible, why are many of our dreams not coming true?
Don't you just get the feeling that there's an invisible wall separating you from your success? That there's a wall separating the successful people from all the dreamers out there?
If you want to get to the other side, if you want to succeed at whatever you are doing, you have to break through that wall! That's why achieving your success is called a breakthrough.
Do you know the only thing that can smash that invisible wall?
Smashing the wall doesn't take a single or a few tries. It takes countless tries and years and years of repeatedly ramming that wall.
Having a popular blog doesn't take a single or a few blog posts. It takes thousands upon thousands of valuable and amazing blog posts! Not to mention, years and years of blogging as well.
Building a successful business doesn't take a single customer. It takes hundreds and even thousands of loyal fans!
Closing a sale doesn't take a single or a few sales pitches. It takes hundreds and thousands of presentations and almost equally the same number of rejections!
The reason why most dreamers are not breaking through is because they give up trying. Some give up after so many tries. Some give up after a few tries. Sadly, most give up after a single try.
Very few persist in smashing through that wall.
Persist even when nothing seems happening. That wall will begin to crack eventually.
Persist even when everyone is already giving up. That's simply how life is. There are more people who quit than people who persist. Be one of the few who will persevere to the end.
Persist even when you feel like giving up. One more try may be all it takes to crack that wall. If not, maybe the next one after that will do the trick.
Persist even when you are already feeling discouraged. That wall is teaching you to persevere, to believe in yourself more, to act more, to trust in God more, and to have more faith.
Persist until you achieve your dreams. Persist until you smash that wall in front of you and achieve your breakthrough.
