Success isn’t about working harder. If it were, every farmer, every waiter, everyone no matter their job, would be successful.

Success isn’t about working smarter either. Sure, you can take shortcuts to do more in less time, but that’s no guarantee you’re gonna make it either.

So, what is? What are successful people doing?

The things you don’t.

That’s the secret to success: doing the things other people won’t.

Because they’re boring. Because they’re hard. Because they scare the crap out of you.

Success Is Past Your Comfort Zone

When I first started my skincare blog, I dreamed of becoming the new Michelle Phan. 

Back then, I thought success was only a matter of hard work. So, I worked 12 hours a day to create the most detailed product reviews and in-depth skincare posts that solved the problems my readers had.

The blog grew… at a snail’s pace – while I was burning out big time.

So, I decided to work smarter. Cut back on the number of weekly articles. I’d focus my efforts on the topics with the highest potential to go viral and the affiliate products I knew would sell better.

This worked better. I was attracting new readers faster, but I was still pretty unknown. Why wasn’t all my hard & smart work paying off?

I wasn’t doing videos, for starters. Or spending much time promoting my posts on social media. Or telling everyone I met about my blog.

Nope. That would mean putting myself out there in a more vulnerable way. Open myself up to criticism. Learn new skills and feel like a failure for not mastering them fast enough.

You know, all the things it takes to succeed.

Deep down you know it. If you could be successful doing everything you do now, your dreams would have already come true.

The only way to make them happen is to push past your comfort zone.

Success Isn’t Where The Fun’s At

In a perfect world, the mere thought of making your dreams come true would excite you so much, you’d be running out of your comfort zone with a huge smile on your face.

But this isn’t a perfect world. IRL, the idea of making your dreams come true excites you and scares you at the same time.

“What if I fail and make a fool of myself?”

“What if I don’t have what it takes to make it happen?”

“What if I lose my job, my house, my friends, and die alone under a bridge?”

Fear and self-doubt are enough to stop most people in their tracks and keep them stuck in their comfort zone.

But some of us dare venture out… just a little bit. We try something new as long as it’s fun. The second it gets too hard, we quit.

The problem with this picture? Success isn’t where the fun is at. 

Don’t get me wrong. I totally believe you need to have fun and love what you do if you want to be successful at it. But no job is fun 100% of the time. 

For example, I could spend hours writing blog posts. That’s where the fun is for me. But recording even one video? Kill me now. 

Most of the time, the thing that propels you to success is the thing that’s the least fun to do. Or the hardest.

The Secret To Success Is Doing What Others Aren’t Willing To Do

Ever wondered why so few people make it to the top?

The world’s full of good writers, savvy businesswomen, and amazing singers. But only 1% of them make it big and achieve their dreams. What sets them apart?

They kept going even when it wasn’t fun anymore. 

While everyone is looking for the next silver bullet or magic potion that will make them an overnight success, the truly successful people do the work no one else wants to do.

Writer Anthony Trollop woke up at 5:30 every morning so he could write for three hours before leaving for work (he wrote 47 novels and 16 non-fiction books this way!)

KFC founder Colonel Sanders was rejected 1009 times (not a typo!) before finding a taker for his fried chicken recipe.

Olympic gold medal winner Jim Montgomery gave up spending time with his friends, so he could be in the pool practicing every day.

These people loved what they did, but it wasn’t always fun. They had to make sacrifices and do the things no one else was willing to do to achieve their goals.

Are you willing to do the same?

You Don’t Have To Be The Best, You Just Have To Do The Work

Good news: you don’t have to be the best. You just have to be in the game.

Few people persist past the point it’s not fun anymore. You know what that means? The higher you climb, the less competition you have.

Don’t be scared that someone else will steal your idea or be better than you. Be scared of not doing the thing you don’t want to do.

That’s the thing that’ll make the biggest difference in your career and life. The thing that’ll help you achieve your dreams.

So, go ahead…

Stop doing customer research online. Pick up the phone and call that client.

Stop waiting to find the time to write. Get up an hour earlier and start writing.

Stop putting off that Facebook live. Go live today. 

You’ve got this, gorgeous.
