It is not who gets there first. It is who stays there. It is easier to get to where you want to be in life than to remain there. Success is fluid. Success is dynamic. Success is in motion. Success is not static. You have to keep chasing it. It is a process, not a destination.
The most successful people are scared of one thing: “They don’t want to be poor again.”
That is why they do everything in their power to maintain their wealth. You can do the same, too.
It is easier to get there than to stay there. If you want to stay successful, you must change your strategy. You must change your mindset. If you want to get different results, stop doing the same old things that got you to where you are. Albert Einstein famously said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Lots of people fail to stay where they are because they lost focus. They forget how they got to where they are. They forget who they are, what they care about, and what is important to them. Instead of focusing on personal and professional development, they got carried away by what other people are doing. What they are doing is no longer interesting to them. They think their friends are doing better than they are. They think their friends are ahead of them.
I have good news for you: it does not matter who got there first. What really matters is how you got there. Life is all about getting there versus staying there. It depends on you.
