Success Brings New Challenges

There is a misconception that comes with success that says “Once I hit -this goal- then things will really get easy.”  You work hard and push the giant ball up the hit every day with the idea that once you get to the top, it will roll down the other side all by itself.  It doesn’t work that way.

Success doesn’t work that way.  Grant Cardone writes, in his book the 10X Rule, that success creates a whole new set of problems.  But as Grant says…you should WELCOME those problems because they mean you are on the right track!

What some people do (and I want to do too) is that when we are on the right path and encounter those “new problems,” we pull back.  We slow down our progress.  We slow down the hustle.  This new problem is a new pain…and we don’t know how to deal with it.

But the art of real success is to keep grinding.  These new challenges are better ones. 

      *Oh, you have more taxes now?  Great!  You are making more money. 
      *Now you have employees to manage?  Awesome!  That means your company is growing.
      *Not enough hours in the day?  Perfect!  That means you are in demand.

Each one of these problems (and thousands like them) are challenges that can remind you that you are on the right track.  Take a breath and a step back.  From 10,000 feet you will realize that.

So don’t pull back the effort when the new challenges show up.  Double down.
