How to Become a Self-Made Success Story
  • BY: Chris Molenaar

We are all self made - successful or not.

Why is it that people who have talent and have the "road paved for them" not achieving elite levels of success?  

There was a study done recently that found people who come from less fortunate beginnings or who have less talent, but work hard and develop good work patterns are achieving these high levels of success much more often than their talented counterparts.

Why is this?

Put two people side by side.  One has talent and the other doesn't.  The one without talent has to work a lot harder to gain the same skill as the one with talent.  Once the person who has put in the work goes to compete with the one who has the talent, it's the ability and the habit to work in addition to the skill that makes the achievement much more attainable.

Work x Talent = Skill  →  Skill x Work = Achievement

95% of people are not born into abundance - look at that opportunity!

Understanding the difference between discontent and gratitude is important because we become what we think about and what we focus on grows. 

Everyone craves for personal growth in life; however, if you have the path "paved for you", it could sometimes be a deterrent for you to be ambitious and successful.

If you don't like your results in life, question your programming.  How much content - television, social media, ads, radio, movies, - do you consume in a day.  How are these affecting your life?  If you control your own mental and subconscious conditioning, you can accomplish and achieve more than you thought possible.

What have I done with my life so far?  Don't like the answer?  Look forward and ask yourself - What will I do with the rest of it?
