This is a wonderful quote that builds on an important concept for success in your life and in your business.
We love to see success. We love to see beauty. However, we often don’t see what it took for the successful person to achieve that.
There are changes that we have to endure to make it work.
We have to be willing to pay the TME, the Time, Money, and Energy to make it happen. Without that, we don’t achieve what it takes to achieve success.
This is not about being in a particular “privileged” group. I find it important to study the science of achievement. What are the characteristics that help to achieve success regardless of race, gender, nationality or any other variable? What has worked throughout history?
We need to study success and what makes it happen like a scientist studies to find the result of what happens.
This takes work.
It is not easy.
That is why so few achieve the goals and dreams they want. Henry David Thoreau, one of my mentors (through his books) and heroes, said that the mass of people just lead lives of quiet desperation. Unfortunately that is true because few are willing to pay the price.
Maya Angelou knew what she was talking about. It requires change and hard work to achieve the goals you want. Be willing to pay that price. Get the help you need. Read the books. Watch the training videos. Hire the coaches. Enroll in the courses. All fo this is required to achieve worthwhile goals.
Read this quote from the late, great Maya Angelou again. Be willing to go through the changes to become the ideal “butterfly” that you want to be in business and life.
