Quote | Successful People Make Things | Note 523
Do you make things happen, watch things happen, or wonder what happened?
Do you believe barriers stop you from breaking through to the creative side?
Most of us want to create things but get stuck worrying if we are good enough instead of just going out and making the things we want.
I’m not sure how I came across entrepreneur and best-selling author Dan Norris, but I’m thankful I did. Dan’s words about how creating the things you want can lead to a more fulfilled and happier life jumped off the pages in his book, Create Or Hate: Successful People Make Things. I want to share some of those words with you.
Dan writes, “There are a lot of factors that go into success. Timing is a huge factor that is rarely acknowledged and can often be the difference between complete failure and monumental success. What a person starts with, who their friends are, and what they have access to are all factors that determine success.”
He goes on to say, “When I look at my success and the successes of others, it’s pretty clear that the majority of the factors are completely random.
I couldn’t write a book about being successful, because there is no universal truth to being successful. There is no blueprint to success.
The only thing I do know about successful people is that they create things.
Steve Jobs made computers. Henry Ford made cars. Walt Disney made cartoons. Richard Branson made records. Elon Musk makes rockets. Oprah makes TV shows. J.K. Rowling makes books. Bill Gates makes software. The list goes on, and on, and on.
I can’t tell you how to be successful. But I can tell you that if you don’t make anything, you won’t be successful.
Successful people make things.”
