How hungry are you for success?
Because in my line of work I see people of all walks of life in pursuit of success.
I see people with all odds stacked against them who make it through hard work and determination…
I also see people who have everything working in their favor who never succeed, and everything in between.
So I wanted to share with you a little about my journey to success and moving through the life stages of survival, security, success, and significance…
So you can figure out exactly where you are within the 4 stages and what you need to do to progress to the next stage.
How to Find Out Where You Are In the 4 Stages of Life
In my book Unlock It, I identify 4 stages of life.
Like most people, I spent many years at this stage.
I still remember how difficult life was, jumping on every opportunity that came my way…
Thinking that this new opportunity would bring the success I desired…
When in reality, each of the 13 business failures I had only kept me there longer.
It wasn’t until I met my first mentor Alan who taught me my first high income skill of Copywriting that I was able to move to the next level.
After working as a Copywriter for just one year, I hit my first 6 figures.
I was finally making enough money to support myself and my mom, and begin paying back some of the $150K worth of debt I’d amassed.
I began consulting businesses on their marketing and added another high income skill to my tool belt.
This gave me an extra 6 figures per year in income, and life was very comfortable.
One day, I had an epiphany, and it helped me reach the next stage.
I’m almost certain you’ve had periods in your life where you had to let go of something that wasn’t serving you.
It can be difficult at times, especially if you’ve invested a lot of time and energy into it.
But letting go of the thing that took me from survival to security was a very tough decision.
I knew that what got me here wouldn’t get me to where I wanted to go, so I fired all my copywriting clients and jumped feet first into the online business world.
What happened over the next few years allowed me to retire at 27.
I remember trying the stereotypical retirement dream of sitting on a beach.
After a day or two I got bored, so I watched movies.
After another day or two I got bored of that.
I’d been retired for one month before I decided I had to go back to work.
I had everything I ever needed or wanted and although few ever achieve this level of success, I felt there was something missing and I couldn’t put my finger on it.
I remember talking to Alan about going back to work.
He told me I should start another business.
Business is war. It’s cut throat…
And I really didn’t want to.
But he told me to start something that I knew I’d love and that could impact others in a positive way.
That’s when I began mentoring others, and transferring my skills.
I didn’t know this would happen, but for the first time in my life I felt fulfilled…
Like I had a purpose other than just making money.
Even better, I was being paid very well for the work I was doing.
You see, significance isn’t about you.
It’s about expanding your influence, impacting others, and leaving a legacy.
And I feel grateful I’m able to do this so early on my life journey.
So where do you sit within the 4 stages I’ve outlined above?
If you haven’t read my book Unlock It, that would be a good place to start, as I teach you how to unlock your wealth, impact, and significance.
How To Know If You’re Hungry Enough For Success
So in light of all we’ve spoken about today, the question is…
How hungry are you for success, [Name]?
Because I can tell you, success isn’t an easy journey.
I’ve heard people talk a big game and come out swinging.
But success is more about consistency than intensity.
Are you willing to take a metaphoric beating day in day out to achieve your dreams?
If you’re unsure, I want to share a quick story with you about a millionaire and a young man.
No matter whether you pursue success or not, I wish you all the best on your journey.
If I can go from being a shy and introverted kid who moved to Canada without a word of the English language on my lips to where I am today…
I know you can achieve your version of success, because remember…
“Success is living life on your own terms.”
I truly believe you can build the life you want, make the money you want, and live where you want.
For me, it all started with a high income skill, and if you haven’t developed your first high income skill yet, then click here to check out some of my trainings at the Dan Lok Shop >>
Even if you already have one high income skill, look to stack another skill on top of that one, to amplify your income even further.
I know you can do it,
P.S. – Don’t be one of those people who buy all the courses and never implement anything.
People like that talk a big game, but their life NEVER changes.
They’re not serious about their life or their success.
