Delusion is a Requirement of Success

You’re always delusional until you’re right. Delusion is a requirement of success. Otherwise you’ll never even take your first step. The 95% of the world who never make much of themselves quit because they don’t even start.

When you first get started, you sound like a crazy person. Your family and friends won’t always believe in you. Worse you take people’s opinions on what’s possible and not possible.

Look around the world right now. The skyscrapers you see. The phone or computer you’re reading this on. Everything on this earth first started in some delusional persons mind.

The only reason it became tangible is because they took the first step. Ignoring the reality around them. Ignoring the people telling them it was impossible.

Understand this world is more flexible than you can imagine.

If you are sitting in a life you don’t want, it’s because you aren’t delusional enough. What some call delusional, I call self-belief.

Self-belief is the fuel you need to make everything you want happen. Because by now you have been waiting for “the right time” and for life to happen the way you want is simply not working out.

You’ve gotta happen to life.

Delusion is a Requirement of Success

Take me as an example. When I got started I had zero skills, experience, or anything going for myself. Add to that, I mumbled and stuttered.

I was working for minimum wage and 285 lbs. Having no idea about what to do. Like you, I had dreams of getting rich and seeing the world.

Yet deep inside my heart I knew there had to be more to this thing we call life. To the outside person they’d say just accept your place in the world. Maybe one day you will be able to travel. Maybe one day you will figure it out. Just be a good ole’ boy and stay patient.

I ignored everyone. It annoyed me realizing there were people out there quite obviously living the life they wanted.

If they could do it, why couldn’t I?

They weren’t smarter than me.

They weren’t more blessed than me.

They just knew something I didn’t. So I became obsessed with cracking the code. Because once you realize it’s worse to live in purgatory forever always wondering “what if” rather than “well at least I put in effort today, let me do it again tomorrow” – you become free.

And while you can see with your own eyes, I cracked the code. This is why you’re here reading this now.

I’ve got thousands of students around the world. Hundreds of articles you can read to piece together the process. YouTube videos sharing lessons for you to use.

But none of it matters if you don’t implement it. You can’t just sit behind your screen thinking positive thoughts. You’ve got to actually put your work boots on and get to work.

Doesn’t mean you’ll become an instant millionaire next week.

It does however guarantee if you don’t quit, you will figure it out. It takes as long as it takes. I write weekly (sometimes daily) emails to keep you focused and share lessons you can immediately implement.

Always the best,

Dylan Madden
