Effort Pays Off…When used correctly

effort-rockThe $500 Millionaire constantly says that life is about getting results and this is true. But how do you get the results you want? Results come from persistently taking the correct action but make sure you never devalue the effort.  If used correctly, effort is what helps show you what the correct actions are. In other words, effort will pay off…when used correctly.

Countless people try to accomplish things but few actually do.  They might even work hours and hours on achieving that goal but if they are not taking the correct efforts, then it is a waste of time.  If you are trying to achieve a goal, you need to evaluate your efforts and see what results they are creating.  By doing this, you can take little steps toward the goal which eventually will get you on track to achieve the goal.  The key thing is that you need to analyze your efforts and see what works and more importantly, what doesn’t work.  Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Many people approach the $500 Millionaire for help because they think they are doing “EVERYTHING” right and trying really hard but not getting what they want.  Sometimes they will even say that they are copying someone else who has achieved what they want but they still are not getting the desired results.  The first thing the $500 Millionaire tells these people is to evaluate their effort to make sure they are really doing “EVERYTHING” right.  See, you can be saying the right words but having the wrong presentation.  You can eat healthy, but eating the wrong way. You can be working out, but doing the wrong work out.  It is not always what you are doing but how you are doing it.  The $500 Millionaire has come to find that it is very simple to see.   You can tell if you are truly doing EVERYTHING right because you will be getting the results you want.

If you are in sales and you think you are doing everything right but your not making money, re-evaluate your efforts because I can almost guarantee you, you are doing something wrong.  If you are trying to loose weight and you think you are doing everything right but are not getting the results you want, re-evaluate your efforts because I can almost guarantee you, you are doing something wrong.  Goals are simple.  There are universal laws of success that if you follow you will achieve.   People make goals difficult and it is impossible to achieve any goal when you start putting blame ANYWHERE else but on you.  The $500 Millionaire NEVER feels bad for anyone who does not achieve a goal because the only way to not achieve a goal is to give up. Giving up is an individual’s choice.
Understand that 90% of the reason why you are not achieving whatever success you want is because your efforts are either not enough or they are incorrect.  If the result is not correct, then you need to change your approach. There are
only two ways to fix this.  The first is by trial an error, which could take a lifetime.  The other is to ask someone who has achieved what you want to help analyze your efforts.  That could be a Boss, a Mentor, a Teacher, a Parent, a peer etc. Anyone from the outside, looking in, would help you re-direct your efforts so you can get the results you want.


It is sad when the $500 Millionaire sees someone put blame on everything and everyone else (things they can not control) rather than look internally at their own efforts.  Again, 90% of people that do not achieve their goal are not putting in the correct effort.  If you are struggling with achieving a goal, making a sale, making a grade, loosing weight, etc. look at the actions and efforts you are putting towards that goal and I think you will see that it is not the system or the goal that is the issue but the issue is your effort.  Do not be fooled by this and do not be discouraged by this.  Pay attention to the results you are achieving from the efforts you are giving and you will know what works.  Failure does not exist until you bring it to existence.
