The belief that the hard work is unavoidable and that will lead us to success is so common, and so deeply carved into our consciousness that very few people ever question this “truth”. I am absolutely certain that this belief is nothing more that a part of our common slave-identity, and it is not much different in different parts of the world.
For some reasons, I have never bought this concept entirely, even though I have worked really hard in some periods of my life, and I love to work in general. From the early age, I was looking at my parents and the way they live and work. I must say, I never wanted to follow the same pattern and I never did, but hard work has always been a part of their approach to life.
Maybe I would have bought the concept if my parents were rich, but they were not. We were not poor, but definitely not rich. Actually, we have been experiencing shortages in some things. Not in food, clothing and basic things, but sometimes vacations and similar stuff that comes as extra things in life. Our family life has not been luxurious in any way.
This raised the question in my mind,- Since most of people in this world work hard, then why are so many only fighting for survival? It took me years to get the answer to this question.
The sense of the possible
As I have already mentioned, humanity suffers from the slave-identity. I know that some people will react to this statement but honestly I do not care about that. We have all been programmed to follow and serve things that looked bigger than us, and never question the order of things.
You may disagree with me if you like, but the reality rules and this is how it is at the present moment. It does not have to be this way and individually, we can change things in our lives!
The collective programming has heavily reduced our sense of what is possible!
May I ask you something, would you show up to your work tomorrow if you knew exactly how to invest some money you already have successfully in order to make much more out of it?
70% of all Americans do not like their jobs. I do not have exact numbers about the country where I live (Sweden), but I am pretty sure it is similar. And these numbers may be even higher. In the same time individuals like Warren Buffet, invest money and make it work for them. And he makes profits that could pay of the debts of several third world countries all together.
So if Warren Buffet works hard then he gets much value for his effort, but he is one in a hundred million. So this concept obviously does not work, it is not valid, the reality shows it clearly. The reason why Mr Buffet does what he does is that his concept of what is possible is very different from what other people believe it is.
Successful people do not work hard
I have recently written an article about some common things successful people do and you can access it HERE. If you read it you will see that these people think and act differently, and they have very different approach to things. I know how big difference this is cause it took me years and much effort to incorporate them into my work, and I can tell you- they work!
It is all about breaking the programming that we have all been exposed to in our lives. I hate to be philosophical, but it is unavoidable to consider other ways of looking at things in order to break the spell.
I have reached the success I always desired and I can tell you that it enriched my life in a way that it would be impossible for me to explain. I did all that by modeling successful people in my business, and this made me realize that working hard has nothing to do with being successful. It is all about competence and intelligent work, not the hard work!
I will give you an example, when I started my affiliate marketing career years ago, I was working really hard. I had no problem sitting in front of my laptop for hours and hours, every day, building my websites and my business. I was very motivated so I went extra mile doing it. But I had no results whatsoever, no money at all.
The reason for that was simple, I had no clear idea what I was doing and naturally we always try to compensate that with hard work. We try to replace quality with quantity. After some time pieces of the puzzle started to fall into place, but I was still working hard with no results.
Many people quit at that point of business development, but every time I reached that critical point I would be reminded of my errors which made possible for me to continue with new clarity and strength.
Modeling the successful people in what they do and how they are doing it, made a difference. After series of failure in my marketing campaigns, I started studying Dan Kennedy and that changed things completely. Implementing his strategies and methods turned things around.
So it is obvious that success depends on what you know rather on how much work you put into it.
Putting it all together
As I said earlier, I like to work, but I did not enjoy working a lot with no good results. But every time I received a game changing information from people who knew more than I did, it raised my game to a whole new level.
Let me give you the example of this. When I first started with network marketing I had the same experience and results as everybody else. It seemed almost impossible to do it successfully and make something out of it.
At that point I could continue like many other people I knew did, blasting their contact lists with requests and offers, hoping that few people will answer. It is like what I see people still do on different social media platforms, advertising the same thing over and over again. This is a hard work, and it does not bring results!
I was lucky to learn how to do this from a true expert. I learned about a whole different approach to this kind of business. I learned about posturing and principle of supply and demand. I learned how to leverage this techniques to my favor.
And miraculously, with the implementation of this strategies, I got results that surprised me like nothing ever surprised me before. Before, I could only chase people hoping that they would find my offer interesting. Now people turned to me, asking me for more info!
So, if it is anything I can tell you out of my experience is this – if you work hard the chances are that you are not doing it effectively. Work to learn and improve, cause the hard work in itself is not going to lead you to success!
