You’re Not There By Mistake.

Success is intentional. You either make it happen. Or you don’t.  Your results are the outcome of your effort. What you do leads directly to what you get.

Don’t make excuses if you don’t like your results. Be intentional. Change your effort.

Do something different the next time around.

Adapt. Adjust. Evolve.

Whining about the situation or pointing the finger at somebody else won’t help you accomplish success. Farm better. 

If you plant potatoes, at harvest time you harvest potatoes. If you plant carrots, at harvest time you could carrots. 

The same is true about negative thoughts. The same thing is true about financial discipline.

The same is true about humility and hustle. 

If you’re not harvesting the results you want, you aren’t planting the right thing. 

It is as simple as that. There is no other answer beyond that. 

What you put into anything is what you get out of it. 

You can’t put in less and expect to get more. 

If your goal is to do the least you can, your harvest will look pretty small. Less yields less. 

If your intention is to do the hard things even though that makes you look obsessive, you’ll end up reaping a bountiful harvest. More yields more. 

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out what’s going wrong.

Look at your results. 

Look at your inputs. Your efforts. Your activity. If you don’t like what you’re getting from your harvest, you need to plant different seeds along the way. 

Be intentional. Stop wasting your time whining. 

Make awesome a possibility.
