Who’s watching you?


The case for success


will you find success


Ultimately, you should want to be successful for you and not someone else. Most people have goals like putting their children through college, buying a bigger house or bringing a spouse home from a job that they don’t like. All of those are great goals, but I believe that they are doing those things because of how it will make them feel about themselves. There aren’t too many feelings that can compete with the feeling of accomplishing some goal. Especially, if it was a difficult goal to achieve.


Have you ever set a goal for yourself? Was it a goal that you weren’t sure if you could accomplish it? When you achieved it, didn’t it feel so good that you thought you were floating on air? Yeah, that’s the feeling that people want for themselves!


Aside from the great boost to your personal self esteem, I believe that there are other reasons to achieve success. There are a lot of people who are going to be watching you and how well you do. They will be watching from the shadows. They’re trying not to be seen, but they are incredibly interested it what happens and if you’ll find the success that they really want for themselves.


The members of your warm market may be trying to tear you down and make sure that you don’t get hurt by trying to be successful. When you decide that you’d like to try to be successful, you’re sticking you neck out, put yourself on the line. It’s risky and everyone knows it. It doesn’t mean that you’ll fail, but there is that possibility. On one hand, your warm market doesn’t want you to fail, but on the other hand, they’re afraid that you will succeed and leave them behind.


They’re watching you.


Some of the people, in your warm market, are watching you because they have a secret desire to try to be successful, too. You’re going to have an influence on more people then you realize.


It could be your children or your neighbor. It might be your cousin or a co-worker. It could even be your boss. You just never know who is going to be watching you. You never know who you might end up inspiring.


they're watching you


Keep this in mind as you make your decisions about our success. Remember that your children are watching you to see what you do. Will you be an inspiration to them or will you quit? If you quit, they’ll still love you, but what will they take away from that situation? Will they learn that it’s okay to quit something just because it’s hard? Is that what you want them to learn from you?


You could influence people and families for generations. They may sound like an exaggeration, but I can tell you, from personal experience, that it isn’t.


My story


It was many years ago, but I had a regular job at one time. I left a retail job to go into retail management. I didn’t really like it, although it paid fairly well. I had worked in management for less than 2 years when I decided to try my hand at owning a business and trying to be successful. It took about 60 days and I had equaled my pay in my management job. In less than a year, I was making almost double what I had been making.


I visited my ex-boss several times over that first 12 months that I was gone. He offered me my job back several times. I told him that I could afford the pay cut. He was a district manager for the company. He was making pretty good money. He enjoyed his job, or so I thought. I had no idea that he was watching me.


About 18 months later, I tried to track him down, just to say hi. I was told that he had quit his job to start a business of his own. Apparently, I inspired my boss to quit and start a business of his own.


It just goes to show that you never know who’s watching you and who you might inspire, if you find success of your own.
