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.

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.

Check it out now whilst it’s fresh in your mind.

How to get motivated and achieve big things

How to get motivated and achieve big things is a common question I’m asked. Coming up with ideas is easy, getting motivated can be much harder.

Do you have a problem getting motivated? You know what you’d like to do but you just can’t seem to get going?

Many people feel this way and, if I’m honest, I can be like that too. So whenever I struggle to get going, I like to watch a motivational video or listen to a motivational podcast or audio book.

When I need a little push I listen to people who inspire me. People like Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins and Brian Tracy.

And here’s another inspiring speaker from TEDxVirginiaTech. In this video Scott Geller talks about the psychology of self-motivation. I found this very useful and I hope you will too.  Certainly it’s worth your time to listen to it.

To find a job you’ll love start with these questions

Find a job youll loveIf you love the work you do then you are lucky indeed.

Most people, if they are lucky enough to have a job at all, are in jobs for which they have little or no passion. They just do whatever they have to do to ensure they have a regular income. It’s a living but it’s hardly a life.

If you’d like to find a job you’ll love doing then start by asking yourself these questions:-

  1. For what activity would you rise early knowing that was on your day’s agenda?
  2. What activity makes your eyes sparkle with enthusiasm?
  3. What activity gives you a real buzz?
  4. What activity to you really is fun?
  5. In what activity can you completely lose track of all time?
  6. What would you do as a hobby if you couldn’t make a living at it?
  7. In which activity do you not have to be asked twice to participate?
  8. Is there an activity for which you have a real talent?

The answers to these questions will help you to identify the activity for which you have passion and enthusiasm. If you can then identify a job which consists primarily of this activity then you have found the job you’ll love. And as the saying goes, find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

Getting that job won’t be that easy, of course. However knowing what you really want is the first step on the road to success. And finding a job for which you have a passion will lead to success.

How to develop a millionaire mindset

How to develop a millionaire mindsetDo you want to be rich dear reader? Would you like to have so much money that you no longer have to worry about having enough to pay your bills? If you do, you’re not alone. We’d all like to be rich but few of us have the right mindset needed to create and build wealth. The question is, how to develop a millionaire mindset?

Well in the embedded video included here Jack Canfield will enlighten you.

For any reader unfamiliar with Jack Canfield he’s one of America’s top motivational speakers and he’s also the best-selling author of top self-help books like Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Success Principles.

These books are amongst the very best self-help books you can buy and if you haven’t read them already I recommend that you do.

In the video Jack Canfield offers words of wisdom for those people who want to build their fortune but have yet to get going.

Jack explains that if you want to be rich, you have to learn how to think like rich people think.

He argues that without a millionaire mindset, you’re going to remain stuck in a lower or middle-income reality. In my opinion, he’s right in what he says.

The right mindest is always an essential ingredient for success but how do you develop a millionaire mindset? What do you need to do to develop the right way of thinking?

Well watch his short video and you’ll be on your way to learning how to avoid getting stuck in financial mediocrity.

If you’ve yet to achieve wealth then it’s never too late to start. Many financially successful people started late in life. For instance, Ray Kroc was 52 years old before he started building the empire we know as McDonald’s.

So get started now and design the future you’ve always imagined.

How to develop a millionaire mindset:

If you’re interested in great motivational advice then the best speakers and writers in my opinion are all American.

There are many I admire and Jack Canfield is one of them. So if you’ve never read any of Jack Canfield’s books then I recommend that you check them out and purchase your own copies from Amazon.

If you build you own small personal library of motivation books you’ll find it will be money well spent.

How to make the most of your future

How to make the most of your futureHow to make the most of your future? A question we all ask ourselves occasionally, I’m sure. We worry about the future because increasingly the world seems such an uncertain place.

In many ways the future is uncertain but then again it’s actually a lot more predictable than you might think.

I’m often asked what I think the next 10 years will be like. The answer’s simple; the next 10 year will be pretty much like the last 10 years and the years before that.

Future years:

Think about it. The next 10 years will just be a constant stream of challenges with lots of problems to be solved. That’s how life’s always been. And that’s actually good news for us all. Why?

It’s good news because it’ll ensure that there’s a constant stream of opportunities for enterprising people to exploit. So we can all make a good living and all we have to do is focus on those problems we can solve for other people.

Yes, jobs may be in short supply but there’ll always be plenty of customers with problems to be solved. Customers for goods and services yet to be invented.

If we can all learn to look for customers, rather than jobs, and make sure we have the skills and knowhow to solve problems for those customers, we’ll always have work and from that over time we can build wealth too.

The nature of work:

Work is just doing stuff for other people in return for money. It’s that simple.

Opportunities will always be there and we can choose to take them or not. For the fleet footed there will always be opportunities to make money, regardless of politics and political personalities.

Create your own future:

Find customers you can serve, serve them well and you’ll always do well.

And it doesn’t matter whether you were successful or otherwise at school either. That’s actually irrelevant. There are plenty of successful and wealthy people who failed to shine at school.

Skills can be learned and knowledge can be gained at any time in your life.

So look around for people you can help, improve your knowledge and skills as you go along and gradually enhance your earning ability. It can be done; people do and you can too.

Today’s assignment:

So let me finish with an assignment for you.

Look around for a problem to be solved. Look carefully and you’ll find plenty of them I promise you. Now, who’s the potential customer? What skills will you need if you are to solve that problem for the customer? And once you’ve identified those skills, how will you get them and by when?

Now think about this asssignmnent carefully. By applying your unique talents and knowhow, whose problems could you solve? To whom could you be an answer to their prayers?

How to make the most of your future:

The future’s as bright as you want to make it for yourself. It’s all down to you.

Don’t just let life happen to you.

Start right now and make it happen.

Create a future that’s right for you.

Don’t just accept whatever life throws at you; go out and get all the things you really want.

Other people do and so can you. Go on, get started, Now!

17 Principles of Personal Achievement

Personal AchievementInterested in personal achievement dear reader?

Perhaps you’re keen to succeed but you don’t quite know where to begin?

Well a good place to start is to look for successful people, work out what it is they’ve done to become successful and then use them as your role model and template.

In other words, if you copy what they’ve done there’s a real possibility that you can be very successful too.

And whilst you’re doing that, identify all the great people who write about personal achievement and read some of their books too.

One great book I can recommend is Napoleon Hill‘s 17 Principles of Personal Achievement.

It’s available on Amazon of course but this video embedded here offers a summary for you.

This video is interesting, useful and well worth your time. And of course if you’d like to check out the audiobook then just  CLICK HERE.
