10 years seems like an awful long time doesn’t it?
I mean, it’s an entire decade after all. 120 months, 520 weeks, 3650 days! That’s quite an investment in time.
Here’s some interesting things to note:
Starbucks, arguably the most popular coffee brand on planet earth took 13 years to finally open their 5th store.
Wal Mart, the retail giant, didn’t cut the ribbon on their 2nd store for 7 years.
Kevin Hart, is not the highest paid comedian on the planet, earning more in 2016 than even Jerry Seinfeld…Has been working on his craft for 19 years.
And John Wooden, the legendary college basketball coach for UCLA, didn’t win his first championship title for 20 years.
There is a quote that I read by one of my favorite authors Jon Gordon and he stated this:
“When people ask me how long it takes ot become an overnight success…I tell them 10 years!”
Again, not a flash in the pan at all. That’s some serious time to invest in a business, in yourself, in your dreams. But re-read some of the examples I wrote above, the power is in staying the course.
When your competition gives up after about a month or two, you are still there focused and growing your business. There is simply no better way to achieve success than staying the course and growing everyday. That’s what this whole Plus 1 brand is about, growing..Daily!
But the second part of that formula is this…Keep. Showing. Up!
Maybe you don’t want to become a comedian like Kevin Hart, or a coffee mogul like Howard Schultz of Starbucks, or even a coach like John Wooden. But you want to live YOUR dreams! You want to be a success in your chosen field. Well my friend, here it is…The truth. The reality!
Stay the course and show up every day! There really is no greater game plan for success.
