It's Friday afternoon and every now and then I just get in a funk. No particular reason, just things seem off and I can't seem to focus on what I had planned on working on. Well, I know I'm not the only one who hits a frustration point like this and here's a tip.
Take a trip to YouTube.com and search by just about any word you want. I hit "motivational" and this is the video that got me to focus. It hits a little too hard on the issue of financial success, because happiness for me goes a lot deeper, but it's still the same recipe. So, as you watch it, if you just think about some of the things being said, people you'll hear talking and simple one liners you'll read, they all point to the keys to success.
There are no shortcuts and no matter what your goal or definition of success, it's all about believing in yourself and working hard. Every one of you is passionate about photography and establishing your own business and there's a quote in the video from Gary Player...
"The harder you work the luckier you get!"
Put that together with "You won't fail if you don't quit!" and you've got the recipe to keep building your business and waking up every day with a smile on your face.
Wishing everybody a terrific weekend!
