Idea into action. Consistency into action. Action into success.
Sorry, the easy way is a myth. Success is made up with idea, action and consistency.
“You will never win if you never begin.”
– Helen Rowland
Consistent hard work mixed with good idea can create wonders. And if you put consistency on top of that, you end up with the best environment for success.
“There is simply no substitute for hard work when it comes to achieving success.”
– Heather Bresch
Hard work will bring you to a good level. Then you’ll have to do even more to become better. And after that, if you keep working hard, you’ll maybe reach the best level.
“The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
– Vince Lombardi
Hard work without good idea and consistency will never bring you anywhere.

A lot of blogger are posting daily. Some even post more than once a day.
Should you post daily?
Let’s talk about this.
- What is the main subject of your blog? If your blog is about something that can change daily, you could post daily. As an example: sport blog, Stardom blog, politic blog, shopping blog and so on. But if your blog is more about personal growth than you could limit your post to a few times a week. Remember that content is king. If you don’t have anything to post, don’t post.
- How many people do you have visiting your blog? If you start your blog, you should take the time to choose your subject and then start to post according to that subject. Its way better to post once a week a very good post then to post 7 ones that are bad. The more people you have on your blog, the more you’ll feel the pressure to post daily.
- Do you have a lot of bad days? A bad day is a day where you just can’t find the energy to create a new post. If you have a lot of bad days, than you should write as much as you can during your good ones and put the extra post on the side for the bad days. Doing so will help you keep a steady 3 to 4 post per week. It is very hard to post good stuff daily.
- If you don’t see how you could post 3 times a week, than you should not stress about posting daily.
Posting daily is for the expert. If you don’t have the experience to do so, then you should start with 3 post per week.
It could be a goal for you to find the energy and inspiration to post daily.
Warrior business mind
Look at your business as a quest to accomplish. You have to fight your way into making that business work. In some way, it’s like a warrior quest. The fighting is done with computer, but the will is the most important part of your character. Even with the best tool, if you don’t have the will to make it, you won’t make it.
A warrior has to face the problems and put them down. So the quest can go on. Instead of killing the enemy, you kill the competition with your better product, advertising and marketing.
A warrior will get up when he get strike down. He has to stand in front of destiny until he win.
A warrior never give up, he always go on to accomplish the quest.
Not every warrior will be among the best. The best will only be the ones who are doing what needs to be done more often than all others.
“There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”
– Ray Goforth
There’s no easy way to accomplish the quest.
Beware of people that have nothing to lose when they give you an advice. If you take those advice without asking yourself if they are good or not, then you can find yourself in trouble.
“Men are often biased in their judgment on account of their sympathy and their interests.”
– George William Norris
When the advice will not put them in peril, they will give you the first things that come up on their mind. With average source, you will never get more than average results.
People that have some kind of interest in your success, they will take the time to think about their advice to you. They have something to lose if you fail.
You can still find some really good people that will give you the best advice without any way of getting anything back from your success, but those people are sadly hard to find.
In the end, you are in charge of your success. Good or bad advice will not be the only factor.
We are our worst enemy. Inside of us we’ll find the good and the bad in our life.
When we look outside for the keys to our happiness, we look inside of us.
You have all the wonders inside of you. That you get them or not is all about you.
What you think you deserve, you do.
You can’t lie to yourself. So, if you think you deserve, you really need to believe it.
I can’t give you anything you don’t deserve.
You can’t give away anything that is not deserve. So, when you feel the need to give, do it.
If you feel the need to ask, then do it. You’ll never get what you don’t deserve. That you ask or not, you’ll get it in some way.
Do your best.
Compare only to yourself.
Do better than your last time.
“Everyone wants to be a winner, but very few people are ready to do what needs to be done to win.”
– Brian Tracy
Winner are not comparing themselves with others. They do their best against themselves and end up being the best in the end.
Your true competition is always yourself.
Be conscientious about what you want.
Be serious about your choices.
« If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up somewhere else. »
– Yogi Berra
If you don’t know what you want, you’ll end up doing what others want.
“If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to build theirs.”
– Tony Gaskins
Things aren’t going to get better with your whining.
“Life isn’t fair. It’s true, and you still have to deal with it. Whining about it rarely levels the playing field, but learning to rise above it is the ultimate reward.”
– Harvey Mackay
Ok, things can get tough and we sometimes need to ventilate. But don’t stay on that level, rise up and find the will to keep going on.
Nothing great comes instantly, there’s a lot of work under it. And most of the time there’s also a lot of bad things happening before the success.
Whiner are not invited in the success club.
A good word…
People want to know they’re doing well. What ever you find that is good, say so. And even better would be to do it publicly.
“No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.”
– Andrew Carnegie
Pick the leader among those who choose to follow you. Offer them the chance to take some leadership among the team. When you offer, it’s the first test you get them to take. If they take it, then maybe they have what is needed to become a leader in your team and if they don’t then maybe they still have some work to be done on them.
Do what needs to be done. But always offer your team to do some of it first. The more you’ll give them the opportunity to do, the more they’ll take from your shoulder. Support what is done and celebrate every success they’ll get.
“Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.”
– John C. Maxwell
You don’t have to always be the top, but you need to be among the top. Leaders have to do what needs to be done if they want their team to do the same.
Motivating by example is the most powerful way to do it.
“Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.”
– Harold S. Geneen
Your attitude will become the attitude of your team. Your action will become the action of your team. Don’t expect something different.
“People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.”
– John C. Maxwell
A leader without a vision will not go far and will not get a lot of people to follow. The vision will drive the leader before it can drive the team.
