Do Results Matter if You Don’t Put in Effort?

Welcome to “Your Amazing Life” and thanks for being here. We discuss tools and tricks to create an Amazing Life in this blog. There are a few powerful ways you can support us. It would help if you subscribe to us and leave a rating/ review, in it leave your top takeaways from what we talked about, and also interact with the community on the Facebook page. Next, be a hero to your friends and family and share it with them… Lastly, sponsor it. Your support makes a massive difference. Check out the show notes for links to the subjects we discuss and if you have any topics, you would like me to address just put it in the private Facebook group. I want to give a couple shout outs first to my follower Sebastian and to my New York tribe. I appreciate them, growing and sharing the podcast with their friends and family. Let’s get into Your Amazing Life.

I’m betting you are normal and you base your thoughts and beliefs on results. If I got the result, I wanted then my goals were successful right? How many of you look at your day to see what you got done? It is probably not about what you worked at but what you accomplished. Let me know if I’m getting warm here. I get stuck here too. In the past I had expected to get a great job and I wanted to do it without working my way up the ladder. Or maybe you want a successful business from day one without first putting forth a little effort. People on social media, or in interviews like to show how success sneaks up on someone; and they become an “overnight” success. That is not how it usually happens. It comes as a result of having a clear personalized plan of action, and then investing the hard work and resources to allow success to come into view. If you have the results that you deem you consider yourself successful then you have put in the correct efforts for that day, right.

Most of us have had a desire or goal to lose weight at some time in our lives, right. We always go and step onto the scale to tell us if we have moved closer to our result. Maybe you even had a clear and personalized plan of action (a diet.) Maybe you have invested in the correct foods and reduced your calories. It is still the result of the scale that we look to and that we are basing our failure or success on. Most of us do not rate our success on our effort but on our results. If you doubt this, when is the last day that you said “I followed my plan and put in the effort I needed and so I was successful even though I did not get the desired results.” This might have shown up as “the scale did not go down but I ate right and felt good.” 

Let’s look at success. It operates the same way.  Athletes don’t become superstars overnight. Actors don’t go directly to Broadway. We have gone into many of the examples in past episodes. Most business people try at least 3 or 4 things before finding one that works, and most entry level jobs are little more than a learning process. Do you try more than two things or do you just figure you are not lucky enough or don’t have the contacts to be successful. Do you get stuck on the results and let that determine your effort? I mean this is very typical at least in my life. I get stuck wanting to move on to another effort because I want different results. I can’t tell you how many times I left a job because I didn’t get the money or the promotion (results) that I wanted when I wanted them. But it is not like I had put in the thousands of hours that a professional like Kobe Bryant did. We talked about him in episode #93. If you or Kobe Bryant were able to get the results without putting in the effort how would that change things? That is what many of us think that we want. What would the outcome be if Kobe picked up the ball for the first time and he could shoot then as well as he could when he retired. That would have made him a much different person. He would not have had the focus or drive that he had. What would it be like if you had what you wanted without the effort?

I have talked with you about the importance of nutrition in many of our episodes. I have found a clinically proven product that I drink one packet a day and it gives my body all the micronutrients I need. This is an all-natural product you will love. The packet is filled with superfoods and all their nutrients. Best of all it comes with a 100% Money back guarantee, so there is no risk. Many doctors are now recommending this. Start your day like I do with a packet of nutrition. You are going to want to try this. Goto Then if you would like to become a business partner contact me.

We are talking about results and effort today. Which do you concentrate on? Is it the results that you shoot for? Or do you grade by your efforts? Many of us are grading on our results. It is the result we desire. The results are the business, position, money, or looks. Tell me how many of your New Year’s goals were based on results that you wanted? All of them, right. But superstars spend more time looking at the effort rather than the results. Have they spent the 1000’s of hours in effort to hone their craft to the ultimate degree? Because for the superstars they value effort more than results. they know that effort will produce results.

You need to decide what you’re willing to put into the process of bringing success into your life. Remember there are no shortcuts to success. There is no magic button. Not one thing that can be told to us and get to what we want. When looking at things that way we are concentrating on the results. But average people are the ones that concentrate on results. Successful people concentrate on effort. Truthfully the effort that you put in is the only thing that you have control over anyways. If you look at any superstar, they would not be the superstar they are if they had the results from the beginning. There would have been other things that they had learned like focus and a love of work. The reason for this is that there are things that come with the time, effort, and money that we invest. The effort, time and money we invest pays us beyond just the results we were hoping for and most of the time we do not even see it.  

Maybe you think you can’t afford to invest in your future. What are you willing to give up to bring new successes into your life? The world abhors a vacuum. If you empty things from your life there will be things that rush into fill that void. Some of the big names have recommended investing 3% of your income into success. Many of you have no idea of what that would look like. If you make just $12 an hour which is $1920 a month your investment at 3% would be $58 per month. What if your yearly income is $65,000 a year at that point it should be 5% which would be $270 a month. What if you want to make $150,000 a year well prepare yourself by investing $625 a month to increase your income. If you want to make 1 million then $4150 is your benchmark. Reach beyond what you think you can afford.  It will accelerate your success!

Remember, you can’t run without walking and you can’t get to success without investing time, effort and money. You need space to grow into what you can become. Those that you see that have gotten to success, did so because they invested 1000s of hours, and at least that much in money. They have put forth a great effort. They have also invested 1000’s to 100,000’s of dollars to get to where they want to be. The more success they want the more money they have invested to get them to where they want to be. What do you invest daily in time, effort, and money to get to where you want to be?

The only 100% successful investment is to invest in yourself. Do not block the flow of talent and opportunity that is waiting to surge through you once you invest your time, effort, and money into becoming.

If you are tired of suffering, overreacting, being stuck, breaking your word, and doing it over and over again; If you want to struggle less and enjoy more. If you want a truly amazing life and a successful life. You need the “you have value” program.  If you are willing to make some changes, be kind to yourself, and to invest in yourself. I would love to help you to create who you are actually capable of becoming.  Contact me,
