Arrow Warrior Sucess: NEVER GIVE UP! - How the top 15 motivational gurus reached success

Sucess: Never give up!


Author Michael Jeffreys personally interviewed 15 top motivational gurus in 1997 for his then upcoming book. After talking to gurus from Brian Tracy to Dr. Wayne Dyer, he distilled 8 Secrets to Success they all agreed upon. These secrets are still good today and are as follows:


1. Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life – In a society where people blame everything from their parents to the government for failure, those who don’t buy into this mentality or succumb to the “victim” thinking succeed. To blame something or somebody outside yourself is saying they have control of your life and not you. Someone else’s opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality.


2. Live Your Life On Purpose - What separates motivational thinkers from the unsuccessful is that they believe they’re doing what they were put her to do. The difference between this and just living, is that the latter is just getting through the week with the least problems. But when you live your life on purpose, your main concern is doing the job right. For the entrepreneur this means finding a cause you believe in and building your business around it.


3. Be Willing to Pay the Price - Be willing to pay the price for your dreams. Wanting a big house, a luxury car, and a million dollars in the bank is all very nice, and everyone wants these things – but are you willing to pay the price to get them? This is one of the major differences between the successful and unsuccessful.


4. Stay Focused – Every day we’re bombarded with hundreds of tasks, phone calls, messages, and everyone competing for our time. Focusing requires giving up something in the present because you are investing your time in something that will pay off big-time down the road. Jack Canfield and Mark Hanson were turned by 30 publishers when they submitted the first “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book. Instead of giving up, they stayed focused on their goal and did four or five interviews per day for radio, TV, and newspapers, for five days a week for a whole year. Eventually, a small publisher decided to take a chance, and of course now it’s a best-seller that spawned an entire series that have sold more than 10 million copies.


5. Become An Expert in Your Field - One striking factor all successful people have in common is how seriously they take their profession. They strive to be the best at what they do, and do almost anything to improve. If someone followed you around all day with a video camera at your business, would it be a tape you’d be proud of or embarrassed about? Make the decision today to work at being the best in your field. How? By finding out what the “best” in your field are doing, and do what they do.


6. Write Out a Plan for Achieving Your Goals - Write out an action plan/map for how you’re going to achieve your goals. Trying to reach your goals without a plan is like trying to drive from Los Angeles to Chicago without a map. A goal that isn’t written down is merely a wish or fantasy.


7. Never Give Up - Never, never, never give up. When you’re fully committed to achieving your goal, giving up is not an option. You must be willing do whatever it takes to make it happen. The power of perseverance is an awesome force. As someone once said, “inch by inch it’s a cinch”. Think of the lowly inchworm – if it pondered the length of the trip from start to finish before it started, it probably would never move. To a worm’s point-of-view, the garden path must look like a trip to Mars. Never give up! Keep on going like the Eveready battery bunny, and pretty soon you’re there.


8. Don’t Delay - Nobody knows how much time they have left to accomplish their dreams, and we must remember that we don’t have forever. The clock is ticking, and sooner or later your number comes up and you’re gone. Successful achievers know this too, but they don’t view it as a “negative”. Achievers use it to “spur them on”. They go after what they want as energetically and as passionately as possible, for as long as they have.

9. Take Action - Now you have the recipe for success - Take Action!

The "When?" question is what most discourages people if after some time they don't get results. Yeah, this is the tough part, but if you really want to succeed you must be willing to pay the price. As I've said before, this is one of the major differences between the successful and unsuccessful.

N6 (Write Out a Plan for Achieving Your Goals), I personally find this one very important, writing your goals gives you more focus. A goal without a plan is just a wish.

True! We need a plan, a mind map, coordinates, a compass...
otherwise we just get lost with all the IM possibilities.

This is awesome! Made me think I'm far away from success and I have to work my my up.

I particularly like the don't delay, made me realize we don't have forever.

I like the number 7 post.

"7. Never Give Up - Never, never, never give up. When you’re fully committed to achieving your goal, giving up is not an option. You must be willing do whatever it takes to make it happen. The power of perseverance is an awesome force. As someone once said, “inch by inch it’s a cinch”.

To a worm’s point-of-view, the garden path must look like a trip to Mars. Never give up! Keep on going like the Eveready battery bunny, and pretty soon you’re there."

Yeah I will never give up.

Ive read most of those guys... and the sad fact is that 'most' of them got successful by teaching how to be successful. In fact there has been lots of research in this field recently, its like this doco I saw that went on to show that most people when surveyed chose the cheesy snake oil salesman as a doctor over the real doctor.

This one thing always makes me scratch my head. Maybe i'm cynical, I dont know. Its like the dudes that come to this forum and beg for help, then you look at their sig and it says "Make Money Online". Its the same as some of these motivational gurus.

Dont believe me?

Anthony Robbins, got successful from promoting Jim Rohn and then began teaching his own stuff. Which he had never successfully done himself...

Barbara De Angelis has been married five times and yet she teaches about relationships...

Jack Canfield knows Chinese History and his son is famous for saying that Jack was distant and that he is skeptical about the entire self help industry. What the?

Les Brown, was poor... until he started motivational speaking...

Patricia Fripp is the sister of Brian Fripp and ummm.... oh yeah she got rich by training people...

Mark Victor Hansen, went to college and got a BA in speech communications and two masters degrees... oh hang on, no he didnt because those school heads denied it. Oh, and did I mention that he promotes stuff with known scam artist Anthony Morrison.

The only guys from that list that I think where genuinely successful before becoming successful from teaching 'how to be successgul' are; Brian Tracy, Wayne Dyer & Mike Ferry. Note, I have not gone through all 15.

Dont think that what im syaing is that none of those guys worked hard, or that non of them deserved it. Cos im not, what I am saying is that if I was given the option of learning from dude #1 who worked as an apprentice mechanic for five years, then managed an auto shop for 10 years and then went on to start his own auto repair shop and successfully ran it to the point of franchising across the country or learning from dude #2 who went to school, hung around for a few years until he realized he needed money and then began telling people how to run auto repair business's... I think the choice is very obvious.

And because there is an exception to every rule. Dude #1 might not be that good with people and he may be a terrible coach, but whats the reality of that considering all hes done? And dude #2 might be fantastic at running a small auto repair shop, but whats the reality of that?

If you say something long enough and loud enough, people will believe it.

-Andrei
