You Just Need To Show Up Everyday and Everything Else is Easy

For a long period of time, I used to ask the question, “What might be the secret to the success of other people?” And I’d often see that they are from the US that’s why they are successful. They started a business because they had money. I’d always see things that I can’t do.

But I often ignored the most important thing about success that nobody is talking about. Just show up every day.

When I started out as a book blogger a very good friend of mine told me that you don’t need to make the best posts out there. You just need to make posts every day. And that’s how you win.

But to tell the truth, I was quite suspicious of this advice. Like to win people need special skills right? How can one win by just showing up?

But man. I was damn wrong. I kept making posts for months without any increase in followers or revenue. But still, I kept on just publishing. And in just 2 years. I have created a following of 50k followers and I’m generating some good revenue from it.

So, From my own experience here are the benefits of showing up every day:

1. Opportunities come to you

Opportunities come and go but if you’re present you will be ready to grab them with your hands without fail.

2. Things will improve eventually

No matter how bad the situation seems. You might not be getting reach on Instagram, not many people are watching your video on YouTube. Remember that these things will eventually improve. And when they do, you’d be in a position to receive the rewards.

3. Compounding

If you keep doing something every day for a long period of time. Compounding is going to act for you and through small incremental wins, you’d win big in life.

So, Remember, and that no matter what happens. Don’t stop showing up. Never ever stop showing up and you will win eventually.
