The Road Less Traveled by Jon Bartos
2013 is going to prove to be a banner year for many of us. Even though we have all heard some studies claiming that the economy is still a little sluggish and individuals and companies are not spending money while bank accounts get bigger and bigger, I remain bullish. So why am I so bullish on 2013? It’s the same reason you should be to.
The secret formula to success is not a matter of the economy, up or down, robust or recession – or any other ancillary topic. The secret is actually quite simple. It’s knowing what to do in that environment – then being wanting, willing and able to do it. The key should be focused on the “willing to do” part of the equation. The stronger that “willing to do”, the more success one has. Unfortunately, most role failures in life happen not because one doesn’t know what to do. It’s because we just plain don’t do it. Period.
This blog is focused on the few, the proud, the ones who are “WILLING TO DO” whatever needs to be done – to achieve their desired level of success. You are the ones who can do anything in this world you put your mind too. You are the ones that make the changes that are direly needed in this world. I welcome you and I salute you.
My goal through the Road Less Traveled blog is to help you achieve your desired level of success in your career as fast as possible – so you can make a significant impact on the world – in whatever area you choose to do. Like Robert frost said in his famous Poem The Road Not Taken - “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I , I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”
For those who are “Willing to DO”, your potential is infinitely great at what you can accomplish. You can change the world. So in order to reach close to our potential, we need to take the road less traveled – to make all the difference.
Bob Buford said “Success means using your knowledge and experience to satisfy yourself. Significance means using your knowledge and experience to change the lives of others.”
How can I become significant in this world? Some focus on stopping the homeless problem in their community, others want to cure breast cancer, some want to stop children from having to go to bed hungry at night or even making sure no child goes without school supplies. Whatever you are passionate about is what could be the possibilities for you personally. When you can experience success earlier in your career, it gives you the unique ability to have the time and resource to influence others.
Spend a few days and think about the significance you would like to have on this world. By having a better idea of what you would like to help accomplish from a larger perspective, gives you a much reason “WHY” you need to get there. And quickly! It will be like a shot of adrenaline continuously helping you with the leverage to overcome any adversity you come across.
