Why everything takes longer than you thought…


Everything takes longer than we think.  And success is no

We are not living in a movie or a reality show.  A lifetime
of experience, achievement and success doesn’t take just 2
hours to accomplish.

Success requires sticktoitiveness and dedication.  It
requires mastery.  And mastery always takes time.  And often
it takes longer than we have been falsely conditioned to

Success lives on the others side of “I want to quit” and
just around the corner from“Will this ever happen to me?”

Are you willing to be patient enough?

And are you willing to give it your all before you see
evidence that you will succeed?

Let me know here.



  1. Hi Bill
    Very refreshing to hear someone in the position you are in tell the truth about this. It’s too often said that ‘if you do what I do, then you’ll get what I’ve got’. But that person ignores the often many years of work that may have had nothing to do with where they are now – and yet informs and supports it. Certainly I know that when I started renovating rooms and houses, I didn’t imagine it would end up as transforming small businesses! Now I feel I have fully embraced all the past into the present, which is all the better for it, and better for my clients too 🙂

  2. I found myself taking a deep breath and feeling my body relax as I read this.

    I particularly like the part of being “falsely conditioned” to thing things are going to be faster and easier than they are. I think that part of the problem is people making things out to be fast and easy in order to sell more programs.

    I do something really different with my Platinum Program. I offer lifetime re-attendance. This is because I know that it will realistically take more than a year to fully integrate and implement everything. I’ve heard that it takes an average of 2-3 years to fully integrate new information, and when I think back on my own experience, I’d have to agree.

    I can whip out an online sales funnel in a day now, but 2-3 years ago, it might have taken me months to get a handle on all the moving parts.

    My main takeaway from this post is to relax and not think something is “wrong with me” if I don’t see results from something instantly. Instead, just keep moving forward. 😀

  3. Yes long range thinking for short and long range success. I have been in my business for 25 years and have seen lots of great things. Now that my kids r at school and a little bit more independent i can devote more time to my career and business, adapting to the new dynamics of business. I am in it for the long haul, always have been……

  4. Amen, Bill!!
    Thanks for giving me my new favorite word — STICKTOITIVENESS.
    I might add to your beautiful insights that when one is an INNOVATOR, it takes even longer. My Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ and the new masculine-feminine chakra paradigm I embrace and share are way “out there” and “woo woo” for much of the public. Even with Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research out there. Slowly, though, people in all corners of the world are catching on… Of course, not near quickly enough for me! LOL. I really needed to read your post to day. Thanks for reminding me that real change takes time. Much love and many blessings for all the great work you do! Vicki

    Hi Bill, your message is confirmation for me. I just was talking two days ago to one my resourceful partners that I have to follow my heart on a particular project I am working on. When the work we do are a part of a movement, the development of the work takes time.

    Have An Amazing Day!

  6. Melissa says:

    thanks for this message Bill. It was the positive message I needed. My inner critic keeps telling me the opposite , you will never make it, etc etc. It such refreshing to hear a succesfull person like you say a comment like this once in a while to remind us all that we are on our way.
    cheers to this.

  7. Very timely. Thanks!!
    Keep up the good work.
    Light, love & laughter,

    Hi Bill – your words could not have come at a more perfect time. I am having one of those days where achieving my dream to create what I REALLY want seems impossible!! Lots of inside stories swirling saying “Give it up – you don’t have what it takes – you should have done it by now and blah, blah, blah.” The good news is I can observe it all and know “this too shall pass” and I will re-commit for the 1,000th time. And, I appreciated opening up this blog today and reading what you wrote – thanks!!!

      Isn’t it wonderful how the Universe send you the right message at just the right time:)

  9. Hey, Bill! This is the first blog post of yours that I’ve had the pleasure to read. What a great message, and a short and succinct way of presenting it. Too often we’re told to “speed up” our success, or that we’re not matching others’ expectations of success. Instead, we need to listen to our inner voice, create our own path and stick to it. Thanks for the great words of wisdom.

  10. Hi Bill,
    Thanks for making it clear that it is about the journey and not the destination, much more enjoyable that way! In fact in the journey success comes much quicker, :-)!

    • Bill Baren says:

      Awesome, Barney. It’s the journey, my brother, can’t hear that message too much.

  11. George says:

    This resonates, Bill. There is no “instant success.” You have to work for it… and not give up.

    For example: Since 2008, I have published 17 books. Instead of going to parties, watching television for hours, gossiping for hours on the phone, I wrote, edited, and published. Five years…17 books, with number 18 in the editing process.
