Do you realize that no one is an x-factor more than yourself? You are the crucial x-factor to whether you will succeed in life. There's no getting around that at all, it's the truth. No one else is going to be an x-factor until you make yourself one. When you take the time to think about that, hopefully you'll feel more empowered to work harder on what your goals are.
No one else can become an x-factor for you until you put yourself in a position to get someone else to believe in what you're doing. I didn't realize I was my own x-factor until I consistently did work everyday and got myself to a place where people would notice my books, podcast, blogs and so many other things.
When you embrace this aspect of your journey, you will achieve results no matter what. It may not be huge results but it will come slowly and progressively. Once you accept that you control your own destiny and everything you do will have an impact on yourself and others down the line, you enjoy the journey more.
Understand and know that this should be a longevity game and that you want to leave a legacy. That's what it's about for me, is that what it's about for you?
Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!
