Formula For Success

Today I’d like to share with you New York Times best-selling author Jeffrey Gitomer’s formula for success.

I love this. It is extremely simple but very true. 

If you were to take a look at the things that you have been successful at in your life I bet you would find that all these elements had been present.

  1. Find something to do, that you believe in, and that you love.
  2. Dedicate the time that it takes to become a world-class expert at it.
  3. You have to believe in yourself, and let no one else around you shake that belief. 
  4. You have to wake up every morning with an attitude of YES!, and have it be strong enough to shake off the NOs.
And, if you have all of those elements…

     5. You must then be willing to work hard. Not just “do whatever it takes,” but actually see the vision of completion and fulfillment, and work hard towards that with all your heart, every day. 

SUCCESS FORMULA RECAP: If you love it, if you believe in it, if you believe in yourself, and you're willing to work your butt off, you can march to success, doing it YOUR way.”

The first step of course is finding that thing that you are passionate about. Discovering our “burning desire” as Napoleon Hill identifies in Think and Grow Rich.

Take a few minutes today to think about whether you are passionate about what you are doing. If not is it time for a direction change? Is there something you could do to ignite the passion? Have you lost touch with your original purpose?

I know for certain that when you are doing something that you love…..hard work no longer feels like hard work!  ~ Inspiring Others to Love Life
