Default Here's The Biggest Success Secret of All Time....

The biggest success secret is that there are no secrets. Yep, I said it.

Deep down inside, everyone knows how to succeed but few are willing to make the effort because it requires work...hard work, at that. Personally, when I used to search for "the secret to success" by buying lots of self-help books, I was getting nowhere. I actually believed that the more self-help books that I bought and read, the greater my chances were for success but I was sadly mistaken.

From my experience, and the experience of others that I've saw, it wasn't until one quits searching for the secret but set a definite purpose, truly desire it's attainment and roll up their sleeves and get busy that they succeed. You already know what you're supposed to be doing to get ahead. The search for the secret is nothing more than a method of procrastinating and lacking faith/belief in one's self. Due to that lack of belief, the person believes that there has to be a shortcut that others utilize to succeed, but that's fiction.

Therefore, stop searching for secrets because there aren't any. The stuff you read in the self-help books are things that you already know (although it doesn't hurt to be reminded of these things). Just think back to any goal that you've achieved in your life before ever reading a self-help book. I can guarantee you that you unconsciously put to use the principles described in those books...thereby proving that you already know what to do in order to succeed -- it's just a matter of DOING IT.

the secret ..

you are in full control of what you define as success

and there is a thing called realative success ..you can make a million dollars a year and feel like a failure if you compare yourself to someone making much more ..and try and live where millionairs live .

you can make 2 thousand a month and live a much better lifestyle than that millionaire if you live where you want and somtimes you can live right on the beach .

Really well said, Odahh.

Success = Doing whatever you plan/choose to do in life. And it can be absolutely anything.

"Each problem has hidden in it an opportunity so powerful that it literally dwarfs the problem. The greatest success stories were created by people who recognized a problem and turned it into an opportunity."

how much of lance arstrongs advice on being the best sounded like much of the top people in any field who give advice.

apperently in many fields to be a top performer requires getting away with cheating for as long as possible..even if everyone else is doing it ..i am a patriots fan or use to be they have had good seasons but have not won the super bowel sence they where stopped from stealing play books .

at some point we have to make our choices ..about what really matters to us ..and is it worth trading time for money to get it..or are we doing something that getting what we want is main and making money is the bonus .

if a writer never sell a million book..but make enough to live well and keep writing .

there are seven billion humans on this planet ..and we are currently destroying the environment chasing material success ..because that seems to be the only kind we are taught is worth chasing ..

800 million people are farmers who cannot grow enough to feed themselves or their families ..to them being able to grow enough to feed themselves and have a little extra to sell would shivt them from abject poverty to success .

while in the US there is 1-1.2 trillin dollars in student loan debt ..most of it loaned in the last five to ten years..much of that to people who could not find jobs after getting degrees or will be in debt for the rest of their lives.. because success was defined as getting a degree and a job and a house .

so with the current models of success in bad shape ..it is critical to identify the stuff we want that really matters to u ..and avoid the show of success unless we want to partake

p.s i don't intent this to seem like an arugument aimed at you.just a rant that has been building up

i did both ..the assumption i make is the those on this board who read this ..put success in financial terms ..and then add in a visual of what has been marketed to them as success and ..the self editing we learned as children to steer tword things based on how much money we could make .

so i findit important that success is way more than the financial aspects .

Don't quite agree.

If everyone already knows the "secret to success". Why are the majority of people not successful? (even though they wish to be)

Probably, Your mind already have answers for the decisions it make. Sometimes they are wrong and sometimes right. For Perceptive people it may be up to 7/10 times right which are successful while for Negetive people it may be as less as 1/10 times.

My opinion C.G. for the reason why the majority of people are not successful is that they are not willing to sacrifice enough, I think there is a quote that goes something like, "You have to be willing to sacrifice who you are now to become what you want to be" and that can include a number of things, from TV to less sleep, the bottom line is that the most successful people are the ones who are most hungry for that success.

I agree with Young Financier, there comes a point when you have to stop searching for the answers and just go and make the answers by taking action. Mistakes may be made, but that is how we learn, the best time to start becoming successful is now.

True. We are the ones who are in control of our lives. In order to succeed, we should go out and do what it takes to succeed. Those books won't make you be successful if you just read it and do nothing afterwards.

C.G.

the problem is in the Us there has been a limited definition of what success is ..

so we have been drugging boys with adhd to make them study academic subject ..and destorying their self confidence ..while diverting them away from activities that could make them successful .. but instead if they end up in their early to mid twenties ..with the negative effects from the medication.. and possibly with debt from student loans they will never pay back .

when many of these people had machanicel skills and could have been guided into fixing the stuff that makes our society run..


the problem is many people sold the Us model of success where actually sold a method of enslaving themselves for a lifetime by constanly being in debt .

student loans car loan mortgeges ..credit cards ..we have had a debt based growth model in the United states..and china pretty much followed suit ..

then standard of living is not based on actual quality of your life but how much you can spend .

who is more successful ..the guy making 100k a year ..but paying 3 grand a month for mortgage and car payment and another 400-800 for loan repayments .

or the guy who grows and sells 100 pound of gortmet mushrooms ..and 300 or 400 head of lettuce a week..and sells the mushrooms for 8 $ a pound and the heads of lettuce for 2-3 dollers a head ..and makes close to the 100k mark .
while having very little debt .

in the view of our modern eyes .. the first guy is living the american dream.. while the second guy though making just as much money.. somehow failed and got the consilation prize.

can you blame the vast majority of people for being "unsuccessful" when success is used to define the minority of people who are doing better than the majority .

when in our culture and in todays society ..even a poor person has access to better lifestyle than many kings before 100 years ago ..a much richer diet better medical care, transportation. travel , communication access to information , entertainments ..clothing,

if somone in the Us ..looks poor but has a better life style than 6 billion other people on this planet..how unsuccessful are they really .

I agree with you that ultimately there are no secrets we have everything we need within us. We just need to remember this but I do disagree with you on the point that we have to use hard work to get what we want. My experience has been that if we focus on what we want in a positive way then the universe will inspire us to positive action. When we go out to throw hard work at something we want to achieve it might work and then again it might not. It seems to me that when we focus our mind and thoughts on what we want and then only act when the action feels good or is inspired then we get the greatest results.

Agree. Everyone already knows that you need to sacrifice instant pleasure and take action. But my point is, if everyone already knows all this. Why doesn't everyone do it? Maybe there's something more to the equation.

I think because it involves hard work C.G. not necessarily physical work, but mental work and we know what Henry Ford once said, "Thinking is the hardest work of all, which is probably the reason so few engage in it".

I believe he meant they know how to do it but are not willing to. Knowing and willing are quite different. Many know what to do. Few have the willpower to engage in sustained organized effort required for lasting success.

Belief + knowledge + organized effort = success imo

Here is my stand on you post. Yes, one of the secrets is hard work, and many people already knows that it pays when you work hard. However, have you met people who works hard but cant even enjoy, buy the things that he wants and eat delicious foods? While there are some, who works smart, thinking positively, working with the principles of life that was learned from the stories or rich people who are now living a happy, wealthy and healthy life. Honestly there are things that you wouldn't know, that until you havent read or hear, you will know. Most of the time you learn from your mistakes, learn from other mistakes and learn from other peoples success. Believe me, there are miracles in reading books.

I don't buy into hard work as the secret. Lots of people work hard and fail. I do think people get in their own way and that many often sabotage their own success because they're more afraid to succeed than to fail. Failing is so much easier for them and they can blend in with everyone else, not stand out. To be successful, you'll be exposed to the world and that scares the bejeezus out of people.

Except I didn't say that hard work alone is the "secret." Sooooo, yeah.
