Thus is the clarion call of many, when it comes to success
Other so-called success secrets include these gems:
yourself with other successful people, and
Acquire the necessary
skills and knowledge
And who could argue with such common-sense wisdom?
is, though, there is not just one recipe for
success, and that's why this page also features a short video by Deepak Chopra as well as my own video thoughts
- I hope you enjoy all that this page has to offer you...
I'm sure you probably think
that too, about yourself; think that you have to be seen on one of those YouTube
videos dropping sound-bites about success in front of a paying (and whooping)
audience to be considered a success!
Well that's not true. We are all successful,
in varying ways. We all know what works and what doesn't work. Deep down, we know,
anyway. Just because many others have succeeded in doing what you can do - e.g.
develop computer skills and literacy skills; have a thirst for knowledge and self-understanding
- does not mean that you too are not a success.
Did you know, for example,
that there are estimated to be 8 million millionaires in USA alone. Are these
people successful or are there 'too many' millionaires for it to be now considered
a success? Think about it.
So that's why I agree with the above common-sense success
principles and why I can also state my own - the ones that have worked for
So my laws of success are:
Have your own dreams and your own ways of doing things
Keep on learning,
Make mistakes, and allow yourself to be wrong
quit, but realise that 'not quitting' might mean starting again
your achievements and success along the journey. Success is NOT a destination!
(And I share more success laws in the video below.)
thing is I AM successful, I'm just not a millionaire! But then I never wanted
to be a millionaire, I simply wanted to:
Work for myself, and
Make time to do other, more interesting things, whilst
And I've been working in such a job, more or less,
since 2001. However, it's only in the last few years that I have realised how
successful I am already.
You're looking for some success secrets
or principles right now, but do you realise how much you have already achieved
in this life? Do you, really? It would be great if you thought about this, for
a moment or two, and then get in touch with your success
Chopra has written a book called The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and this
2 minute video briefly explains his seven laws. In the video, Deepak says this:
"Everything that is happening in this moment is the result of all the choices
that you have made mentally in the past". Scary, eh! - Don't
you think? (Or is it empowering?)
