I know it is a cliche, but that term really does apply and can make a real difference in your life. I have found that 75 percent of success is just showing up. So many people are presented with so many opportunities to do so many different things and end up not doing it because they are scared, they are lazy, they don’t think they are worthy and the list of excuses just goes on. Being a yes man really does pay off because saying yes to things opens up so many new doors to things that you would have never imagined. I remember that I was once presented an opportunity to do something that I had a passion for, but I had denied it because I was scared that I would fail at it and my mind would circulate about all the things that could go wrong if I did it. it was a big responsibility on me. And now that I see it, I should have taken it because failure is a part of success, you cannot be successful without failing. If you never fail, you are playing it too safe in life and will never get anywhere if you do not fail. So, if you have an amazing opportunity that is presented to you, go for it even though there is a chance of failure. You never know if you never try. As Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you do not take”.
That applies in life as well. You miss 100% of the opportunities you do not take in life. I have had so much success just showing up to things with no expectation. Whether it be meeting a contact, learning something new, or getting a job from it. It is never a loss for you if you have the right attitude and just accept anything and everything that is given to you in that opportunity. Life is game of inches; one inch can make the difference between winning and losing. So don’t miss that inch and Just Do It….
