Key Success Book

Key success book. There are a lot of excellent books that cover this very topic. Napoleon Hill has one of my  Key-Success-Bookfavorite books titled The Law of Success in which he characterizes the attributes in what he thinks it takes to become. successful, and I would have to say that I agree with him. I will cover a few of them.


I can think of a few reasons why a person might have a Purpose for Success; you might like to have lots of Money, get out of Debt, buy a new Car/House, take nice Vacations, help other family members out, Medical Bills, or you might just hate your current Job.   I-Hate-My-Job

What is the Definition of Success?

The Definition of Success According to Webster's Dictionary, which I will let you read for yourself.
The Truth, Success can be defined in many different ways, and it's not all about Money. You can be Successful at being a Mother/Father, in Health/Fitness, Friend/Neighbor, and so many other things.
So don't Define Success in just a Monetary Value. But if you are reading this post I think that it would be a safe bet to say you are thinking about Money. So with Money in mind here is a list of a few Habits of Successful People.


What are some Success Habits?                      

Here is just a small list of some Success Habits; I am sure that you can add to this list.


  • Get a Good Nights Sleep
  • Get up Early and Plan out your Day.
  • Do the Things First that you Hate the Most.
  • Try to Eat a Good Breakfast.
  • Feed your Mind by Reading Good Books.
  • Don't be Lazy.
  • Don't be afraid to take some Risks.
  • Look for Solutions instead of Focusing on Problems.
  • Time Management
  • Don't Procrastinate

What are some Success Principles?

People who are Successful are usually always Grateful and try to Live in a State of Appreciation with what they have Achieved. They Surround Themselves with other Like Minded People. They have a Clear Vision of what it is they are trying to Accomplish, and they always set Goals for Themselves.
People who are Successful are usually very Focused and Determined in finding a way to get what they want. They Prepare Themselves and just as soon as they have Determined what their Goal is they take Immediate Action towards Achieving that Goal. They are always Life Learners.
Can Failure Lead to Success?
It would probably be safe to say that the Majority of Successful People has Failed more times than the average person, but the difference is they don't look at it as Failures they learn from their mistakes, and they Adjust/Adapt. But they are so Focused and Determined that they will eventually create success; and you can too. What did Thomas Edison say about failure?
There is a Poem on my wall by my computer desk that I have read many times for Inspiration. In fact, every time my boys told me that they couldn't do something I always made them read it out loud. I want to share it with you.
If you think, you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't
It is almost certain you won't.
If you think, you'll lose you've lost.
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think, you are outclassed, you are.
You've got to think high to rise;
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. 
"Written by Walter D Wintle"

Best Motivational Speakers Ever

How are you Living your Life?

Hello everyone; I have read a lot of self-help books over the years, and they all have at least one thing in common, and one of the greatest inventors in history said it best.
Albert Einstein said “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” What does this mean to you when you think about what that quote says?
What it means to me is that life is about choices, and we can choose to look at it either way. If you are not living the life that you want to live and not following your passions, and your dreams; then you choose to look at life as though nothing is a miracle.


What excuses do you use? 
We are human, and we all make excuses as to why we can't do something.
  • I have bills to pay.
  • When I get out of debt.
  • When the kids get older.
  • I'm too busy.
  • I don't have time.

I am sure that you can add to this list and please do I would like to hear your comments.
I'm not telling you that it is easy, but We are only here for an uncertain amount of time before we journey to the next life and then it is too late.

So stop making excuses!

I am positive that you can find a few hours a day to work on following your passions. Maybe watch a little less T.V., Spend a little less time seeing what everyone is up to on Facebook, and take that time to figure out what it is that you want and then take one step at a time and before you know it you will be living your dreams.    Time-to-make-a-plan
Excuses be Gone; is the title of a book by one of my favorite authors who recently passed away. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer may he rest in peace.

Highly Motivated People

The individuals who are living their dreams and following their passions decide to look at life as though everything is a miracle. They are Highly Motivated.
Most all successful people are all readers of books, they are lifetime learners and are always educating themselves. If you see them sitting around, they are usually focusing and trying to figure out a better way to achieve their goals and dreams.
How many times have you heard yourself say something about another person; man he/she is so lucky they have a great job, a beautiful home, nice car, and take great vacations, that I can only dream about?

Limiting Beliefs

What if I told you that it‘s not all your fault, that you are not living out your dreams. Let me explain what I mean. When you were a child growing up people, put writings on your walls. (in our heads, or our subconscious minds.) Our parents, teachers, friends, and anyone that we came into contact with; Then you were taught what you could or could not do.
So we all make excuses for why we can’t do something because; you have to consult the writings on your walls to see what you learned as a child. That my friends is what is called a limiting belief; making excuses because of what we were taught as children.   What-Are-The-Writings-On-Your-Walls                                                 What is the writing on your walls


  • Money doesn't grow on trees.
  • We can't afford this/that.
  • Do I look like I'm made of money!
  • You're not smart enough
  • You're not good enough
  • You're not pretty enough
  • You're too fat
  • You're too skinny
  • etc.

What are some that you can add to this list?
Please leave a reply in the comments section.
But here is the part that most of us don’t understand, now that you are an adult; you can change those writings on your walls to whatever makes sense to you. I grew up without a father, and I came from a family without money, but I choose to live my life as though it is a miracle and a blessing. It is all about how you look/think about things.

I will give you a couple of examples.

Some people at work and I were talking about the frost on our car windshields during winter. One person said something about pouring warm water on his windshield to melt the ice. I said you don't want to do that because hot water freezes faster than cold and besides it might crack your windshield.
An older gentleman said hot water doesn't freeze faster than cold. Well, I consulted the writings on my wall, and they stated that it does; because that is what I learned as a child. Then I thought about it and became unsure because I had never tested that theory personally.
It turns out that I was right, but it was a reminder to me to question and find out for myself the truth. Because believe it or not. Not everything that you learn as a child is the truth.
I went to a seminar one time, mostly out of curiosity; but I was talking to this one lady that was in the class and she looked at me and said; you must be rich.
I almost laughed in her face, but instead, I said to her that it depends on your definition of being rich.
I told her that if you are talking in monetary terms, then I am probably the brokest person in this class. (considering most of the folks in the class were doctors, chiropractors, and professional people.)

But I have some of the best friends, and family in the world, that would do anything for me; and that my health was fantastic, I have a decent job and a great spiritual connection with our Creator. So yes, I am rich!
She looked at me and then she said, I never thought about it that way; you should be teaching this class. (What a beautiful  compliment) I was blown away by her remark. Here was a group of people that probably made more money in one year than I make in three or four; but she had never thought about it that way before.

Not everybody’s definition of being rich is the same. It is all in how you choose to think and look at life.
Our Creator gave us free will to decide, what we believe or don’t believe; the choice is yours, and only you can change the way you think, and look at things as well as what you believe.
I hope that all of you have enjoyed this topic, and I hope that I made you take a closer look at yourself, and think a little different about what you can do, and how you look at life.
We are never too old to learn unless we are dead.
Thomas Edison said (“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”)
