If You Want to Succeed, Reach Out
Have you ever wondered why you are not succeeding at what you love to do in life? Or, why you are stuck in a job or career that you hate? It all stems from your fear of failure or rejection and your belief that you cannot do better with your life. I have learned as a Christian Business Owner that “you are the key factor” as to whether or not you will succeed in life. Gal 5:25 states “If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit”. Gal 5:13 “By love serve one another”. God has set a plan in motion for your life and He has given you the tools to use in order to succeed in life. What are you waiting for go out and get your success on?
To succeed in life you must be connected to the right people. Those who enable you to succeed won’t always come to you, you must go to them. Success does not come knocking on your door, you must go out and find it. Jesus “went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere”. (Luke 9:6) To spread the good gospel of God. What is keeping you from reaching out others? Fear of rejection, fear of failure, or fear of change. Until your dream becomes more important to you than fear of rejection or fear of failure, you will never succeed.
Successful people dread rejection too, but they believe their goals are worth it. There are two kinds of people in your life: 1. those who already know you have something they need; and 2. those who do not know yet. Start a “people list” to reach the people who do not know about the services or products you have to offer them. Use your network of colleagues and friends, who know about your product or services, to reach the “unknown customers”.
You are already networked and connected, use that “network of connections”, to reach the mass of potential customers. Follow the dots and you’ll get to your destiny. Success always begins somewhere, at some moment, with someone. The secret to “your personal success” is you must reach out.
