Information is much easier to access nowadays because of the continual advances in technology that are occurring daily. The growth and speed of the Internet is a core example of how technology has revolutionized over time. The Internet is proving to be the most convenient and resourceful place to find information and grow your business.
So why do so many people still fail to achieve results?
Anthony Robbins is one individual who provides a ton of valuable knowledge (hence the reason he is very successful). He says that the reason why so many people fail is because of the excuses they make. He calls them limited resources. These limited resources (excuses) owned by the majority of people consist of:
Not enough money
Not enough time
Lack of personnel
Not the right technology
Not knowing how to plan or inadequate planning
Lack of quality leadership
The mass majority of business owners blame their failures on a lack of resources. But let’s look at some of the most successful entrepreneurs and leaders:
Bill Gates: Bought MS-DOS for $50k and sold it to IBM for over $50m
Richard Branson: Billionaire entrepreneur. Started a student magazine and selling music he liked in his garage – founder of Virgin)
Steve Jobs: Co-founder of Apple
Oprah Winfrey: Unfavourable conditions during early childhood – Now a role model and inspiration to many people especially African-Americans simultaneously hosting her own talk show)
Lance Armstrong: Won the Tour de France 7 years in a row after beating testicular cancer
Mark Zuckerberg: Co-founder of Facebook. Originally designed as a network so only college students could interact, share photos and videos. Now it is a worldwide phenomenon
They used their characteristics, positive attitudes, past experiences, took action and have now created much more resources.
There is an abundance in available resources waiting for us all to make use of. Successful entrepreneurs and leaders do not believe in limited resources. It is no one else’s fault if you are letting your emotions, your mindset, and your attitude prevent you from taking action.
It’s your responsibility to be successful. Your life has an incredible calling. It’s time for you to wake up and seize the opportunity. Rather than worrying or complaining about information overload, how about think about how lucky you are to have all this information and knowledge right in front of you?
The majority of people in the world have no chance of achieving what you can because they have no Internet access! Being an entrepreneur is the VEHICLE for which you create financial freedom and to “drive” wherever you please to do whatever you want. You either face the challenges or run away back to the drone known as the rat race.
You are the leader you’ve been looking for.
