How much do you want success?

26 replies
Hi everyone,

I saw this video which talks about the secrets to success and the speaker said that if you want success as much as you wanted to breathe...then you will be successful.

I find it very true.What do you think?

    I want success as much and as often as I want a glass bottle of coke with real sugar. This means all the time.

        A supporting quote to add on:
        "Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning." -- Mahatma Gandhi

    The key to a better life is always stay positive despite of all the problems and thorns you will encounter. Life is not prefect might as well there's no business that is perfect in general but whatever challenges we might encounter we should always stay positive and continue to do what we have to do and for sure we will succeed in the right time.

    I tell all my friends this when they ask whats wrong with their current situation.

    I don't care what your goal is. Whether its to be a movie maker, a rockstar, or someone who just wants to make a part time income online. You gotta eat, sleep and breathe what you want to do for a living.

    When I first started marketing I was going to my 9 to 5 and then coming home and working for another 7 to 8 hours on my websites, products, etc. Find your sweet spot, gain momentum and just run with it. I remember weekends where my friends would be out partying giving me a hard time for not joining. I was at home working ten hour days building links, promoting my content etc.

    I worked my ass off and now its starting pay. Now I kick it on weekends, enjoying myself, while they still figure out how to be rockstars. Confidence, hard work and momentum bring success. I'm living proof of this.

      Awesome! That's my story too. My bandmates can tell you. We'd be on a weekend gig in Nagshead. They'd be at the beach and I'd be in the bandhouse all day writing keywords, exchanging links, etc. It was tough not hanging with them but the sacrifices all paid off.

    Agreed. But letting everything go such as relationships, university, work etc is a very hard for me and I dare say for many other people as well. So, I guess its not that realistic but if you do really let everything go and just focus on making money online than you'll be so successful online it will change your life forever.

      To be success comes at a price.And that is sacrificing what ever which is not helping you to move towards your own success.

    Wanting Success is wanting a feeling. For many it's the feeling of accomplishment, for others ego, for others money, there is no right or wrong answer.

    But if you peel back the onion, and do this exercise - you will find everyone wants one thing"

    Exercise - ask yourself:
    IF I have success - how will I feel? A: Successful
    If I feel successful - how will I feel? A: ____ (ie Satisfied)
    If I feel ______ (ie satisfied) - how will I feel? ______ (ie important)
    If I feel ______ (ie important, content) - how will I feel"
    Keep doing this exercise until you get to the actual answer - which is happy.

    All human behaviour has the goal to seek pleasure or avoid pain.

    That's it. It's so important to know the feeling you are chasing and have self-awareness - it will benefit your decisions on where to spend your time and focus.

    I recently heard that a business owner's income is an average of the incomes of the main five people in his/her life. So, I say SURROUND yourself with success rather than negative, draining attitudes.

    I used to resign myself to that way of thinking, but i had to redefine 'success'. When I changed it from money to being great at what I'm doing and helping others no matter what i realized far more profits in life and became much happier. I love that they say success and not wealth.

    Aristotle discovered it that the ultimate aim of human being is to seek happiness. Success in today's world is synonym with more money and recognition which increases the level of happiness simultaneously on a larger scale and spreads to other areas of life too like relationship. It's easy for someone with a good financial success to maintain healthy relationship and to make good choices in other areas of his/her life than for someone with incapable financial resources.
