SURVIVE FIRST THRIVE LATER
Most people want immediate success. When they started something such as opening a new business, coaching a team, making a debut album, making a book etc. they always wanted immediate success.
In few cases success happens on the first try but in most cases it don't. There are times when you have to survive first on what you are doing and then hang on there for a while and then thrive.
If at first you don't succeed what will you do? take another course? make a new goal? make a new career? and then what? if you fail again on the new direction that you take then for sure you will change a direction again. It will happen over and over again until you grow old and didn't accomplish anything in life.
Sometimes when you are not thriving all you have to do is survive. If you are a musician, a book writer or a marketer and you are not making enough money just survive the moment, that is the only thing you have to do.
In times of survival you will learn a lot of things, you will get tougher from the challenges that you surpassed, you will meet a lot of people, you will see more opportunities, you will work even harder and you will become a better person. In times of survival the universe is just preparing you for success. Don't feel miserable if you are in the period of surviving because the longer you survive the greater the success.
