Success Secrets – What I Say...
Do you want to know the secrets of success?
Great. Then this is the place you can find them. How do I know that? Well...
- YOU have to find your own recipe for success, because
- What works for others may not work for you
- Success is the journey, NOT the destination
- And once you realise that YOU can make up your own secrets
Well, that's what I say, anyway, in both text and video form. And if you're really looking for 1-step formula for success, some so-called laws of success, then I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed (or will you be?)...
Success Secrets - What We All Say...
What I say...
So, I'm not going to give you any success secrets here.
(They're mine! Keep off!)
Seriously, there is a fundamental flaw in looking for someone else's secrets: they belong to someone else, and may not apply to you.
Also, many of these secrets of success are applied retrospectively by success types, AFTER they've become successful; i.e. they just went out there and got the job done, and THEN worried about how they'd achieved it.
Do you understand that? Do you really get what I'm trying to say, here? Success quite often is not planned, nor is it just achieved by following some so-called success principles!
Having said all of that, let me share with you some 'secrets' of living a successful life that I believe WILL serve you well whether you choose to direct them towards your business or your persona life:
- Make your own rules
- Rely on yourself
- Know what you need to know, know where you need to go and take steps to achieve both
- Don't put unnecessary pressure on yourself (seriously, more is achieved via ease than force)
I know these are a bit vague, these secrets of success, but really as soon as the instructions get to specific then you're in danger of trying to live your life according to someone else's rules - rules that are based on someone else's strengths and weaknesses.
Think of ANY successful person and you'll see they, to mis-quote Frank Sinatra, "did it THEIR way!". And that's what I urge YOU to do, too - think for YOURSELF!
Of course, you're not going to get anywhere with thoughts alone. And that's where Brian Tracy's short video (see immediately below) sums everything up perfectly. It really does. The expression 'relentlessly focussed action' comes to mind, when I watch Brian's video - one of the laws of success, if ever there was one!
Of course, I'd love to know your thoughts, too - thanks!
What I say on YouTube...
I also say (as of 2013) that success should as much about how as it is what. Which means if you have to 'sell your soul to the devil' to get what you want in terms of effort and commitment and focus and... (zzz!), then this might not actually be success. (Clue: unhappy A-list Hollywood stars!)
Thankfully, there is a better way to achieve success...
