First Step to Success is Showing Up
Guest post by Katja Presnal
I think many of us are now thinking about entering the $100,000 blogging gig by Cheap Sally, and I’m here to tell you, what’s stopping you!
blogging from home,
by the pool or
from your favorite coffee shop
and making $100,000 next year?
The opportunity sounds amazing, yet some are hesitant to even apply.
I have this theory that you can have anything in life, you just can’t have everything (when it comes to things money can buy). I truly believe in the old saying if there is a will there is a way. We so often put our dreams on hold because we are not willing to figure out the way to get the things in life we want; whether it’s things we can buy, or things that make us happy. But you know what? You are in charge of your own happiness, your own life and your own success.
We so often see amazing opportunities and think “it would never happen to me”. I used to be one of those people too. Then I stopped putting myself down, and started taking risks and just giving it a try. Have a failed sometimes? Yes. But I have gained much more in life than I ever thought I could by just having guts to give it a try. This is why I don’t understand that when a great opportunity presents itself there are people who will not give it a try – worse that can happen is that they say no, what have you lost? Nothing. Think of all those people who audition at the reality TV talent shows and make it through, when you ask them how they are feeling standing on the stage, the answer is almost the same “I never thought I’d be standing here today”. But they gave it all they got and they made it through to their dream. The more you try, the more likely it will be you the next time.
Now, think what would you do if you were offered the Cheap Sally $100,000 blogging job (or insert your dream here) for next year – what would it mean to you? Where would you blog, would you be able to make some changes in your life? Keep that imagine in your head, and do not let it go away. Feed it like it’s your baby, print a picture of a beach where you could be sitting next year this time blogging and tape it to your fridge. Sure, there will be many others applying too, but if your dream, your image of your future is the clearest, your passion is the strongest, your determination to get the job is the biggest – I trust that YOU will get it. Now take the first step and apply.
