Success

One of my favorite quotes is: “All that we are is a result of all that we have thought, the mind is everything, what we think, we become.” ~ Buddha.

Mindsets play a significant role in how we navigate life. While we are encouraged not to compare ourselves to others, there are characteristics that successful people exhibit that can be to our benefit.

Self-Motivation – Successful people are emotionally connected and determined to bring their vision to life. They intuitively adapt to difficult situations and don’t wait around for supervisory instruction. They are excited about their goals and driven to achieve them.

Accountability – Successful people don’t make excuses for bad decisions. They focus less on people’s opinions and more on finding solutions. They respect the truth vs. sugarcoating.

Cognitive Ability – Successful people break problems down to extract the critical components. This enhances their ability for future planning, resource allocation, and problem-solving.

Emotionally Neutral – Successful people remain unaffected by surface-level emotions directed at them. They are not easily derailed by criticism, nor seek validation or affirmation from others.

Self-Belief – Successful people develop skills needed and maintain a mindset that reinforces achievement at every level.

Entrepreneurship

Vice President Joe BidenSecretary SebeliusSecretary Anthony FoxxSecretary Sylvia Burwell 7

Greetings Friends! In light of my many professional endeavors, entrepreneurialism runs through my veins. I realize that entrepreneurship can be a risky undertaking for many, but applied knowledge is power. I have developed teams that have soared to great heights by keeping these four principles ingrained in their psyche:

  1. Put GOD first!
  2. If you do not GO after what you want, you’ll never have it!
  3. If you do not ASK, the answer will always be NO!
  4. If you do not step FORWARD, you will ALWAYS be in the same place!

I help others take charge of their lives by uncovering their motivation and helping them reach their fullest potential. Experience doesn’t matter. I HELP CREATE WINNERS!!

“It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. It doesn’t matter how many times you almost get it right. No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because all that matters in business is that you get it right once. Then everyone can tell you how lucky you are.” Mark Cuban

Failure is Success in Disguise

Failure is producing undesired results.

Success often comes from knowing you had to go through something to get where you are.

Who you are, is revealed by what you do on subsequent attempts.

All success comes at a price.

There is no success without the risk of failure.

No reward without effort.

No opportunity without criticism.

Those that succeed never stop trying until they reach their goal.

Failure is not something to fear because everything we do has a lesson behind it.

It is rare for us to fail. We only choose to stop trying.

Our failures in life are not missing the mark but missing the lesson along the way.

Success Isn’t Defined By Money

Society denies what it cannot measure and is often of the mindset that money is the answer to every problem.

While money affords you certain comforts and opportunities in life, setting your sights on money alone will still leave you dissatisfied and craving something more.

Success is more than having certain powers, influential personal contacts, and money at your disposal. These are only temporal measures. The essence of success is completing whatever it is that you set out to do.

Observing spiritual principles and maintaining personal integrity may not be considered a success by society’s standards, but it is what gives us strength when we are weak, encourages us when we stumble, and rewards us when we are faithful.
