There is no secret to success


The greatest secret to success is: there is no secret. – W. Clement Stone

Despite what the book/film “The Secret” implies, there is no secret to success. However, there IS a formula, one that many many people have written about, talked about and used for centuries.

It is not a hard formula to understand, nor is it inaccessible.

It is more than the “law of attraction”, for that is but one law that governs the universe we live in. What are these laws? What is the formula?

I am researching the aspects of the formula and have come up with a beginning list:

First, we must take responsibility for our own lives and know, deep within ourselves, that we are smart enough, determined enough and worthy to achieve whatever goals we set for ourselves.

Second, you have the ability to change your life. You can be as successful as you want to be. You must decide what success means for you and make plans to achieve it.

Third – Do not let other people steal your dreams. There are many people who have grown up with the wrong conditioning. Whether they audibly hear the words from others, or they have an inner voice constantly telling them, “You can’t do this. Who do you think you are? People will laugh at you!” We must learn to stop listening to negative people, quiet that inner voice and take our power back.

Fourth – Repeat your goals to yourself daily. Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself how great you are! How wonderful you are! How healthy and happy you are! You might feel self-conscious the first time you try this, but it will get easier over time. I not only tell myself these things, I have a vision board that is on the wall in my bedroom with all of the things I want to achieve. It is the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see when I go to bed.

Those are just some of the founding principles of success. I will explore these and more in the upcoming weeks and as I discover new ideas, I will share.

I hope you will join me on my journey and learn with me as I travel down the path toward success!

God bless!

You are worthy of success!!!

  1. All important, but I would move them all down one and put:

    1) Work your butt off, there is no luck or magic other than the alchemy in which hard work is transformed into success.
