If You Can Do This, You'll Be Successful | #45

Mar 31, 2023


I was having a conversation with some friends the other night. They were trying to think of the next big thing, the next new widget, something that doesn’t exist that they could sell. I chimed in saying you don’t need anything new, you just need to repeat what’s been done before successfully.

Sure, if your goal is to transform the world and become a billionaire, then you need something new.

But if you want to make six figures a year and quit your 9-5, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Just copy what’s been done.

There have been thousands of people that have walked this path before you. Successful entrepreneurs all have one thing in common.

They did the boring work.

This is the work that gets repetitive but gets results. For creatives looking to book clients, that can be sales. Sending cold emails. Engaging with leads on Instagram.

You need to keep doing this work for a very long time with no expectation of results.

And when you don’t get results after a few months? Re-analyze and keep doing the repetitive work.

And when you do get results? Don’t stop. Keep going. You know the work that gets you results. Now it’s time to keep doing it.

When others tell you they did x, y, and z and got results from it, listen to them. Copy what they did, and keep doing it until you get results.

If you can drop the expectation of immediate gratification, and do the boring work for months and months with no reward, you will be rewarded handsomely in the future.

When the results do come, you double down on that work that got you the results because now you have your own proof.

There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Learn what successful people in your space have done and copy them.
