    What has brought me the most success in life?

    Saying 'YES!" to opportunity!

    I don't know if I can count how many times in my life opportunity came knocking, and despite HUGE doubts, uncertainty and fear, I said "Yes" and I was always rewarded with growth, greater prosperity and bigger, more valuable opportunities.

    Being told that I can't do something, or that I am just not good enough. I find that acting in defiance of what other people negatively think of me allows me to better myself as a person and move forward.

    The look on their faces when I prove them wrong is pretty sweet too.

    Life gives us endless opportunities to learn, and the more difficult the situation, the more we are likely to learn.

    Being successful takes new ideas, new technologies, and a new way of looking at and handling traditional problems. Anyone can learn different keys that should make everyone within a company, do a better job of managing in a new and more competitive environment. Gain the skills you need to successfully lead an organization or your own business.

    I believe that knowing who you are is vital to your success. I am a person with a loving extended family. I have my own beliefs and focus. But most of all...

      It may sound a bit odd but I think one thing that has helped bring me success is my inherent need to be right. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those annoying people who always has to be right but I do like knowing that the things I say and do are right.

      When people tell me "That's stupid" or "That won't work" or "You can't do that" (I've heard these a lot) it triggers something inside me that makes me want to prove them wrong. Not in an "I told you so" sense and not to gloat. It's more because I believe in the ideas and theories I come up with and I know the only way to prove myself is to succeed.

      I guess you can say that adversity has helped me succeed.

      I've faced a lot different challenges throughout my life and I think my desire to overcome them has helped me succeed.

      I do well when I'm challenged.

    1. Greatest change for me happened when I realized that I could do anything I wanted,
    if only I invested enough time and energy. That there are no limits except those that
    we impose on ourselves and exist only in our heads.

    2. When you fall down immediately get up. All the obstacles and problems are just
    bumps on the road and it's sometimes very hard, but when you overcome everything
    and finally succeed, the feeling is thousand times better than you thought it would be.

    3. Take action. All the knowledge in the world means nothing if you don't put it into effect.

    Doing what I do. There really hasn't been anything at which I have been successful. My undertaking at business is much more ambitious than anything else I've previously done, but I can't imagine doing anything else.

    What is success? If wealth is success, then I still need to continue to persevere. If happiness, health, having a great family and literally tons of friends (it only takes 10 -200 lb. friends to make a ton (:>), then I am highly successful.

    Having the right mindset while knowing that time is running out

    This simple sentence really changed my life in being 100% focus on what I want to achieve. To me, this is success because success is a journey, not a destination.

    Being a new member in the Warrior forum. I figured the best way to kick off my time here is to create a response to this awesome thread since i really do believe that most of what happens in our lives good and bad is all based on our mindset.

    I got introduced to this forum by a friend and when i checked it out, the one thing which i've always said is that out of all the things on here. The most valuable area in the forum is the mind warriors section. Because if you took away everything you knew about Internet Marketing and had only one thing, which was a strong mindset. I believe everything else would figure itself out naturally.

    It takes tremendous will and courage to tackle skills head on. Especially when you're a beginner with little knowledge.

    In reference to this thread. One of the things you will experience along your path is the things you experience along the way to success. So i would argue that it's not the success of achievement in itself that is valuable. What's really valuable is the person you become along the way to success.

    With that in mind, always enjoy the journey and embrace the hardships along the way. Because believe it or not, once you've reached success. It soon becomes your new reality, and normal to a point where you become comfortable.

    This is where new challenges will arise, and the cycle will repeat itself with new frustrations, fears and hardships.

    I'm really happy to have joined the forum

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

    Here's what has brought me the most success in life..

    Really screwing up
    Being honest about who I am
    Giving generously to other women
    Being open to constructive feedback no matter what
    Keeping my side of the street clean
    Suiting up and showing up
    Doing what I said I would do
    Being afraid, but doing it anyway
    Being obsessive about my projects
    Trusting my instincts

    That's all worked well so far.
