Key Ideas

Personal success

Personal success is not a matter of background, intelligence, or native ability.

The keys to success in life are our ability to draw out the very best out of ourselves under almost all conditions and circumstances.

The Four Keys to Success

The great keys to success and to change your life have always been the same:

  1. Decide exactly what you want and where you want to go.
  2. Set a deadline and make a plan to get there.
  3. Take daily action on your plan.
  4. Resolve in advance that you will persevere until you succeed.

Learn From The Experts

You will not live long enough to figure it all out for yourself. 

You can learn from others who have gone before. Acquire as many of them as possible. Then use them to help you do the things you want to do. Learn from their mistakes and benefit from their systems.

Program Yourself For Personal Success

The best way to get your life back in order is to achieve just one important goal. Thereby you create a pattern or template for personal success in other things that you attempt.

You will learn to succeed by succeeding. The more you achieve, the more you can achieve.

The labels you put on yourself

They shape your actions. If you think of yourself as lazy or weak, you act in accordance with that label.

Instead of placing labels on yourself, try making statements indicating you’re in the process of improving. Change “I am” to “I’m working on it.”
