The Secret To Success

It's easy to watch someone you admire and wondered, What makes them so successful? It might seem like others have everything and life just seems to work for them. So, what's the secret? Well, it's something that everyone has access to ...

Have a dream. Set a goal. Get to work.

Anyone can have anything they want and achieve whatever they want if they set goals and then work toward those goals. There has to be a dream. There has to be a desire. There has to be a willingness to work and a motivation to keep working. Success does not come to those who just dream. But, the dream has to come first. Gertrude Stein said, "You have to know what you want to get it." If you're not working toward something, you'll end up with nothing.

No one is content with just watching others succeed. That road leads to jealousy and self doubt.

By changing our attitude to, "I can do it; I will do it," we give ourselves the power to accomplish anything. By setting solid goals, we give ourselves the roadmap we need to get where we want to be and accomplish what we set out to do.

No dream is too big. You just have to believe that you deserve those dreams. Then make them happen!

In Honor of Dr. Seuss Day ...

It felt appropriate to (attempt) to write this post Dr. Seuss style.

Believe in yourself
Dare to do what you do.
Pay no attention
To what others tell you.

Your ideas are great
Give them life, let them soar.
Once you do, chances are,
You'll want to do more.

And you should! Go do more!
More thinking,
And once you're achieving,
You'll keep on believing!
Believe In Yourself
