Success is not easy

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

Is it easy to become successful?

I got the following Email from one of the readers of 2knowmyself:

"Farouk, success is not that easy and its easy for you to talk because you are already a millionaire but if you were like normal people you would have discovered that success is not easy"

This reader was both right and wrong. She was right because she said that success is not easy, and no one ever said that it's easy, but she was wrong because i wasn't born successful!

How success happens

i started around 15 businesses in my life. 10 of them failed completely, 2 were successful for a year then i had to quit working on them and one made me a millionaire! (see the Ultimate guide to becoming rich)

I got rejected from hundreds of people, i failed numerous times and i faced horrible down times. In 2006 i became clinically depressed because of the number of devastating failures i have been through.

At that time i was preaching the following to the people i knew: I) Fight for what you believe in with all the power you have got and don't ever give up II) giving up while you are alive is like dying II) live victorious or live fighting like a warrior.

I kept fighting and by 2008 i made one of my biggest dreams true; i became a self made millionaire at a young age.

I never ever said anywhere that success is easy or that its a piece of cake but i always used to say that those who fight to the end will eventually reach success one day.

What it takes to become successful

In order to become successful you must know how the road to success looks like else you might give up along the way.

If you didn't knew from the beginning that you will face rejections, down times, bad moods and failures then you might stop trying along the way. (see also How to prove those who reject you wrong)

The second biggest mistake people make when judging successful people is that they look at the final picture then judge the person without even bothering to know about what he have been through before he arrived where he is now.

People go to Kentucky fried chicken and eat thinking that this place was always that successful without knowing that its founder got rejected 1001 times before he managed to sell his secret recipe somewhere! (see People who succeeded after the age of 50)

The reader who sent me that Email might have seen me driving an expensive car or talking on one of the television shows about my business without trying to figure out what i have been through before i arrived where i am today.

So back to the original question, is success simple?
The short answer is, success is hard but its 100% doable.

Keep trying, don't ever give up and you will become successful.

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
