Behind Every Glory There is a Story.
Behind Every Breakthrough or Mega Success there was many failures and setbacks you didn’t see or hear of on Social Media.
Everyone is giving you only the highlights of the Success stories and not their failures and you are getting frustrated when you face such temporary setbacks.
We now live in a very social age, everyone puts some or all of their lives on different social media and this can cause undue pressure on a new or upcoming professional just starting out.
Be committed to your own process! Don’t believe everything you see on social media, it is most times packaging. Stay committed to your own process and don’t let social media determine how you live your life.
You may not be making sales currently at the moment in your business or as a Realtor right now.
Process for Success or that big breakthrough takes time.
Process would have some challenges along the way.
You are looking at what others are posting on Instagram, Facebook, tiktok and it would appear like your own process is too slow.
I want to BLOW Sharp Sharp.
I want to Close Huge Deals Sharp Sharp.
You begin to work up yourself on some much pressure.
You Can Celebrate People who are successful and celebrating Milestones but Never put your self on Unnecessary Pressure.
Different Individuals are in different seasons of their lives and career.
Do you know the kind of sacrifices and hardwork and years it took them to get there.
That Successful Man or Woman you are admiring faced his or her own season of challenges also but may not share such stories on social media.
Then Sometimes it can even be packaging or just for the gram that is not even true in certain cases of Some Celebrities.
Celebrate Success of others but beware of the Microwave or indomie mindset (looking for Premature Success in a very short time).
Many People develop Unrealistic Expectations and it becomes a foundation for depression.
Using other people’s lives or results to Judge your own.
Either in personal or professional life.
Pregnancy takes time 9 Months , it is even different for different Species.
An Elephant it takes almost 18 Months.
Some animals it takes 3 months or 6 months.
Some plants its just 6 months and 12 months etc.
The Bamboo tree , it takes an average of 5 years to get to the giant size , for four years it was underground developing its roots but imagine the farmer stops watering it, or taking care of it , the bamboo plant won’t grow to it’s Eventual Size it was a process.
Becareful of Unrealistic Expectations , Especially Sudden Success without a Process.
Don’t not stop putting in the work and quickly give up because you didn’t see instant results , it will take some time and process.
No Great Success or Long Lasting Success happened Overnight it took time.
You shall Be Celebrated in your own Due Season and Appointed Time. It is turn by turn wait for your own time.
Gbogbowa lama Je Breakfast but the timing will be different for different people.
