Absolutely guaranteed secret to success

Secret to successLooking for the secret to success, dear reader? You’re not alone. So many people seek the secret but very few find it.

Well here’s Barbara Sher with some common sense observations about life and success.

This is just part of a presentation she gave at the “Big, Cheap Weekend Workshop” in New York in July 2010. So it’s a decade ago now but her observations are timeless and they’re just as valid today as they were back then.

This video essentially is a ‘taster’ but if you’re not familiar with Barbara’s work then it might inspire you to check out her other videos on YouTube and indeed her public appearances, should she appear at a venue near you.

Change habits and you can change your life

Change HabitsYour life not quite going in the direction you’d like it to go?

Somehow you can’t quite achieve the results you’d like to achieve?

In the video included here, Bob Proctor explains that the reason you’re stuck and can’t get the results you want is likely to be because of a paradigm.

And what’s a paradigm?

Well Bob goes on to explain what paradigms are and how are they formed.

He also explains how change can be achieved.

If change is something you’d like to achieve then this is a really interesting presentation; it is fairly short but definitely worth watching.

I recommend it to you, so take a few minutes and check it out now.

Success Secrets: How your life can be better than it is now

Success SecretsHow is life for you? Perhaps you’re lucky and you have a great job, a nice house, a fancy car, a loving family and a lifestyle which is the envy of your neighbours? If that is you then well done but there’s nothing for you here. If you’ve achieved all that then you don’t need any success secrets from me.

If it is you then I must tell you, you’re in a minority. However I’m guessing you’re not part of that minority? Am I right? Statistically you’re much more likely to be a member of life’s majority. Those people with a desire for their lives to be better but who for whatever reason cannot translate that desire into something that is better.

Statistically you’re more likely to be part of that group of people constantly on the lookout for success secrets. People in search of enlightenment if you like. You’re not alone of course but I hope this post will help you.

Why is it that some people are successful and others are not? What secrets do the successful know that the unsuccessful do not know? Can anyone be successful? The simple answer is yes.

However unsuccessful people tend to think it’s not possible, so they don’t try. They just accept what they’re given as if that’s all they can expect from life. It’s almost as if they say to themselves, this is all life has for me. It’s like they believe that there are no success secrets.

Well I must tell you now, if it’s not obvious to you, life can be better. Life if what you make it. Within reason, you can be whatever you want to be. You can have more. Other people do, so why not you?

Where you are is where you are. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you don’t have to remain where you are. You’re not a tree, you can move. You can change. You can decide that your life will be different. And you can work towards something that is better.

Your life really can be better than it is and you can be better than you are. However for it to be better you have to believe it can be better and you have to believe that you can turn it around. In fact you have to believe in success secrets.

One thing all successful people have in common is a belief that something different can happen and they can make it happen. They don’t allow anyone to tell them it can’t be done. They know what they want and they’re determined to get it.

Some might consider them delusional but successful people see it as self-belief. They won’t accept that they cannot do something because intuitively they know, if they try hard enough, then anything is possible. If they decide what they want and strive for what they want they know they can get it. The price is determination and hard work but they’re willing to pay that price.

Successful people know that when faced with an elephant you cannot swallow it whole. However you can eat it one bite at a time. If you’re building a wall then you don’t start with the entire wall. You start with a single brick and you get that right. Then once that’s securely in place you move on to the next brick and then the next and the next and so on. Pretty soon if you stick at it long enough you’ll have the whole wall.

Successful people know that they can’t get to where they want to go in one single leap. They know you get there gradually one step at a time. And if you want to be successful, it starts with taking the first step.

Readers familiar with Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) will know that if you want to be successful you look for successful people, identify what they do and then copy that model. The idea being that if it worked for them then there’s a good chance it will work for you too. Most successful people will have had role models they’ve copied at various times.

So if you want to be successful look around for successful people and listen to what they have to say. Most people would accept that Will Smith is successful. In the video included here he shares his thoughts on the secrets of success.

His observations are interesting and well worth a few minutes of your time. I can recommend them to you.

Further Reading:

An article of this type can only ever be a taster on the subject but there are plenty of good books which will enlighten you further on the subject of success secrets. For instance one I suggest you explore is:-

The 21 Success Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires: How to Achieve Financial Independence Faster and Easier Than You Ever Thought Possible (The Laws of Success Series) by Brian Tracy

It all depends on how you define success of course. However if for you success is all about achieving financial independence as fast and easy as possible then this book could be for you.

Remember it’s never easy. It requires hard work and determination. However whilst it’s not easy, it can be easier and this book will tell you how. You can explore it by clicking in the link.

How to become a real success?

How to become a real success? That’s a question most people struggle to answer, frequently. If becoming a success was easy then everyone would be doing well.

Sadly life’s not like that, however much we would like it to be.

Success requires hard work and a determination to keep going after each and every setback, and there’ll always be setbacks for everyone. No one’s life is plain sailing all the time.

So where do we start, if success is our aim? Well let me tell you right now. It all starts with being very good at what you do.

If you’re very good at what you do then you’ll get noticed, maybe not immediately but eventually. And when you get noticed you’ll get your chance to show what you can really do.

Just keep performing consistently at a high level and people will not be able to ignore you for too long.

Really good people are hard to find. So business leaders and talent spotters are always on the lookout for genuine talent that is motivated and keen to add real value.

However merely being good at what you do is not enough in itself. You must be ready constantly to seize every opportunity to get noticed by the right people.

If you’re working hard and honing your skills, one day someone significant within your company will say to you, “Could you do this for me please?” That is the point at which opportunity is really knocking. Visibility with the right people matters.

So grab the opportunity to show them what you can really do.

If you embrace the task you’re requested to do then you’ll be on your way down that road that will lead to success, if you play your cards right.

And remember; success is a game and it’s a game you should play to win.

Remember this also; plenty of people can deliver an exceptional result occasionally. It’s the people who can do it regularly and consistently to the highest level who are really special.

With commitment and the right attitude you can be such a person

The formula for personal happiness

Personal HappinessPersonal happiness is a feeling, not a circumstance.

Happiness is more than just fun or pleasure. It’s a more durable sense of well-being.

Our personal happiness depends not on what happens to us but what happens within us.

It’s the way we choose to think about ourselves and our lives.

Gratitude and people are the most important factors which dictate our personal happiness.

Gratitude is all about being grateful for everything we have.

With people it’s all about rewarding personal relationships.

Spending quality time with people whose company we enjoy is essential for our personal happiness. Equally avoiding those people who would make our lives difficult will increase our quality of life.

So the formula for personal happiness is actually quite simple.

  • Appreciate what you’ve got;
  • Don’t fret over things you haven’t got;
  • And enjoy the time you spend with your family and friends.

It takes discipline and practice to think positively. However the ability to maintain a positive mental attitude is essential to our personal happiness.

So go on; start today. Be happy. Life’s far too short for a negative state of mind.

How to stop worrying and start Living

How to stop worryingWe all tend to worry a bit more than we should.

Worrying is natural but it is rarely helpful. It just adds to our stress levels. And what’s the worst thing that can happen anyway?

And even if it does happen would worrying have stopped it happening?

Life’s too short to stress ourselves out with worry.

The question is, how do we stop ourselves worrying? Well consider this idea.

Dale Carnegie’s book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living is a very useful guide. This book is a great personal development text and it’s well worth reading. I can strongly recommend it to you.

How to stop worrying:

However until you have the chance to read it this animated video provides a useful summary of the key ideas in the book.

So I can recommend you watch this video now and then read the book whenever you get the chance.

Further reading:

Readers serious about their own personal development will be keen to establish their own small library of motivational resources I’m sure.

Dale Carnegie’s book would be an essential addition to any personal development library and it can be purchased HERE.

15 Funny Quotes on Friendship

Funny Quotes on FriendshipIf you’re lucky enough to have one good friend then you are richer than you imagine and if you have two then you’re truly blessed.

Friendship is a relationship of equals.

Real friends are people with whom you have a lot in common, especially when it comes to things that make you laugh and those times when you enjoy getting silly.

True friends are people who know all your faults but accept you as you are anyway.

Not everyone with whom you have a friendly relationship is a true friend. Some people are just very good acquaintances.

A real friend is someone you could phone at 3am, when you’re in trouble and know they’d be out to help you in a heartbeat.

Such people are worth their weight in gold and you should never take them for granted. They’re special and you should appreciate them being in your life because not everyone is quite so lucky.

Here are 15 funny quotes on friendship that for me touch on the very essence of what it all means.

Funny quotes on friendship:

  1. Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookie of life!
  2. Friends buy you food. Best friends eat your food.
  3. Friends come and go, but enemies remain and build up.
  4. When our phones fall, we panic. When our friends fall, we laugh.
  5. If you have crazy friends you have everything you’ll ever need.
  6. Never let your best friends get lonely. Keep disturbing them.
  7. You have a problem when your imaginary friend thinks he has a problem.
  8. There’s nothing better than a good friend, except for a good friend with chocolate.
  9. Friends come and go, like waves on the ocean, but the true friends stay like an octopus on your face.
  10. A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, but you’re lucky if you have one.
  11. Laughing is one of the best exercises. It’s like running inside your mind. You can do it almost anywhere and it’s even better with a friend.
  12. I’d walk through fire for my best friend. Well, not fire because that’s dangerous, but a super humid room. Well not too humid, because you know, my hair.
  13. I love making friends. I usually prefer to make them out of plaster and give them funny looking hats.
  14. Dear Diamond, we all know who is really a girl’s best friend. Sincerely yours, Chocolate Cake.
  15. I hope we’re good friends until we die, then I hope we can stay ghost friends, walk through walls and scare people.
