The Greatest Secret to Success Is:
There Is No Secret
Success begins when you discover and understand the most
important living person. That person is you! Being successful
first starts with being happy with yourself. If you are not
a happy person then odds are you will not be successful. Abraham
Lincoln once said: "It has been my observation that people
are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." I have
found that in order to be happy you must divert your energies
to make somebody else happy. If you search for happiness,
it will definitely elude you, but by trying to bring somebody
else happiness it will find you many times over. Sharing happiness
will attract happiness. The opposite is true as well. If you
share unhappiness you will attract misery, despair and unhappiness.
Happiness begins at home. Motivate your family and friends
to be happy like a salesman motivates his prospects to buy.
Man's greatest power is the power of prayer. Don't blame God
for your failures or lack of success but ask for guidance.
All of us have been given special gifts needed to succeed
and we must use them wisely. To become a great achiever you
must practice continuously. Championship football teams don't
become great because of gifted athletes alone, but because
of practice ... practice ... practice. We all have special
gifts that have been given to us but we must practice on how
we use them. Always seek guidance and don't underestimate
the power of prayer. We must stay in contact with our most
senior partner and coach.
Success is a repetitious activity. Use ideas and circumstances
that have proven successful for others. For example, Orville
and Wilbur Wright did not discover the theory of flight they
just used and tweaked others' ideas until they succeeded.
They failed many times before they got off the ground. Remember
when you use somebody else's idea it becomes your idea for
your use. Don't be frightened to emulate others' successes.
Success is not more than establishing the correct frame of
mind; in other words, a positive mental attitude. Have established
goals set and inscribed in your mind. Write those goals down,
this will enable your mind to grasp and remember them. Always
give yourself a deadline when you want to accomplish them.
Have intermediate milestones in reaching each goal. Specify
the time frame. Always set your standards and goals high.
The higher you set your major goal the more determined and
focused you will be in reaching at least the intermediate
objective. Always aim high. Whether you are working for somebody
else, starting your own online business or beginning a new
career, it is too easy to accept poverty and mediocrity. Demand
abundance and prosperity. The most important person in your
life, YOU, deserve it.
All the wealth and success in the world cannot buy good health.
Again, you are the most important person so be sure you take
care of yourself. If you have health problems you become worried
about every ache and pain and your positive mental attitude
suffers. Poor health can undermine a successful attitude.
Exercise, eat nutritiously, maintain a healthy body weight
and see your doctor on a routine basis.
Now is the time to take action. Take the first step to success.
Success is a frame of mind. If you truly want to succeed you
will. We don't fail intentionally we fail in planning to succeed.
Recognize God's special gifts and who the most important individual
is in your life. You owe it yourself to be happy because happy
people are successful people. Unhappy people will eventually
drown in their own self-pity and sorrow and always fail. They
tend to drag everybody around them down. Unhappiness is a
negative attitude. Always find a positive and never dwell
on negative. Establish your goals and aim high. See you in
the winner's circle!
