Can You Guarantee Success?

Can You Guarantee Success? Not With Any Certainty.

Can you guarantee success? No, I don’t think you can, because you never know what is going to happen in the future. I can guess what might or probably will happen, but not the ultimate outcome. No-one knows that.

You might ask the question, “Well what is the point of trying then?” I think that is a fair question. well, there are very few certainties in life. Even smoking your whole life does not necessarily mean that you are going to get lung cancer, but the chances are increased dramatically if you ignore being healthy.

It’s About Increasing Your Chances Of Success

In network marketing it is about taking massive action, as it is with most things, so long as you never confuse activity with accomplishment. This means you have to take the right actions, not just any old thing. So, if there is a proven way of doing things stick with it, don’t change what is working. However you also need be aware of the creative and the innovative, as these may help improve your performance.can-you-guarantee-success

Hang on though, you said, “You cannot guarantee success.” Yes but you can virtually do it by your work ethic, attitude, and mindset. Let me explain from personal experience. Now bear in mind it is who you become on the journey that is just as important.

In 1984 I decided to run the London Marathon, but I was only fit for soccer, not road running. I knew it would take a lot of work to do it properly. I was never one of those who turned up in a Superman costume. I set out a two-year plan in detail so that I could run the marathon in 3 hours and 20 minutes.

I stuck to the training plan (95%) and on the day I was expected to run 3.20 or thereabouts. I was super fit and ready. I ran the first half of the marathon slightly too fast and reached Tower Bridge in 1.44, so I slowed down slightly. Now it was a cold damp day with rain and at 14 miles my hips seized up.

Now I had run 20 miles in training easily, so it wasn’t that I was entering unknown territory. I had to stop a couple of times between 14 and 21 miles but managed to run through the discomfort. At 21.5 miles my cruciate ligament decided that my body had had enough and I had to stop. I managed to finish the marathon in 4.57 because I walked the rest carrying an injury which prevented me from running anymore.

In preparation I had run 900 miles, but on roads. I hadn’t varied the types of terrain and I paid for it at the worst time, when I thought it would be fairly easy. Can you guarantee success, not really? I did feel like a winner because I had completed what I had set out to do. Now, what about you? Are you ready to be a gladiator at network marketing or anything that you are willing to put your time and effort into?
