I have, this lifetime, sifted through quite a bit of data on success. I’ve narrowed my findings to ten basic points:
Work toward your goal every single day. Do not let the sun set without accomplishing something towards it.
Hold on to any wins you achieve along the way and disregard the losses.
Don’t allow anyone to evaluate or invalidate your goals, your dreams, and particularly your abilities.
Thinking about a thing is not the same as doing a thing. Success is only ever accomplished through action. The dream, however, must give your actions purpose and life.
Treat your goals as if they are living beings, and grant them life. All other rules apply with regard to your goals, particularly the Golden Rule.
Study, learn and become the top person on the planet in your field. Knowing WHY is of immense value. Knowing HOW will guarantee prosperity. Knowing both HOW and WHY is everything.
If you get mad at someone or something that stands in your way, you have granted them or it immense power. Become unflappable.
In any situation you are the expert. You are the source. Unquestionably.
Success is hidden in the minutiae. It’s the small things that, brought together, create the whole.
Fortune and fame are illusions, and at best are fleeting. Don’t seek these. Instead, seek happiness. You will ultimately find that it resides within you.
Okay, I guess that’s it.
