Have you heard the joke about the man, who wanted to win the lottery? He goes to church every day, and asks God to help him win the lottery. After 40 years of doing this, he hears a voice during his prayers. He snaps out of his chair and asks, “Is that you, God?” The voice says, “Yes, it is.” The man gets excited, and asks God, “Are you finally here to grant my wish?” God responds back, “You would have won the lottery a long time ago, but you never buy a ticket!!” Here is how I see it… You will receive guidance from the Universe if you are connected, and you trust your intuition. However, you must buy the ticket and attend the show if you want to see the play. In another words, you must show up to the game if you want to win. If you are a solo professional, you must develop a strong personal foundation. Knowing yourself, and clearly defining what you want to play and why, strengthens your personal foundation. Then, you can develop a strong business and marketing foundation. This requires expertise, focus and commitment. No one has the time and knowledge to develop a business foundation alone. You must get help for faster results. With your ticket in hand, you must show up to the game, knowing that you will win. Pay the price and buy your ticket, then show up, and play hard. You are already a winner, and that is how I see it.
