Success has no particular schedule to keep. It’s not on a 9 to 5 timetable, where you can stuff it away in a box and only take it out to play while you are on the clock. Successful thinking and actions require a full day to accomplish. When you aren’t at work, aren’t on the clock, that’s when you need to whip out the energy to get more done, even when you don’t think the time is right to do so. Any time is a good time for good ideas. Take the time to learn more about your business even when you are not at work. Don’t waste time thinking about other people’s success, just concentrate on finding your own.
Downloading some of the top business podcasts from the Internet can help us to stay tuned to the subject of our work and our interests in life even when we are on our own time. Listen to the podcasts while driving to and from work, or driving to the store. Listen to them while taking a shower using a shower head with a Bluetooth speaker and listen to them whenever you get the urge, no matter where you happen to be. Can’t sleep? Listen to a business podcast and get some great advice. Shopping? Tune in and learn while thumping the melons and pricing the meats and get inspired. Cleaning the house? Listen to the podcasts while mopping the floor or sweeping the spider webs from the ceiling.
Take every opportunity to advance yourself and success will be waiting on your doorstep. Nothing can get in your way once you have armed yourself with the knowledge needed to go far in the business world. Study your chosen profession at every opportunity so you can be prepared for that time when you will need to use that information. When you take your dog for a walk, you could be listening to a podcast along the way. Do whatever it takes to bring out the expert in yourself so that when your opportunity rises, you’ll be prepared. Successful people do this and so should we all. It’s only a matter of time.
When we are fully prepared for anything to happen, there are no surprises when they do. That promotion is waiting, that great client is coming your way. That business opportunity you can’t pass up might be waiting for you at any junction so you need to prepare yourself in order to make it happen. Success doesn’t gift wrap itself and lie at your feet in waiting. It hides just around the next corner so you have to be ready for it and allow it to engulf you when it approaches. Once you’ve done that, you will have the career of your dreams and you will be the one everyone is talking about and thinking about as the successful person they would like to become. Your very own podcast might help one of them someday, so put aside your failure issues and get with the program.
