Here is what our members say about us...
"In my circle of friends there is no one really interested in being succesfull or making money. They just live their lives, accepting their jobs and living in their own reality (is it their own reality or is it the reality society wants them to believe?) ... no offense ... if people are happy living this way, they should. But, I believe when you talk about success and money etc with these kind of people you are not learning stuff ... that is the reason that I became a member of this great forum. It gives me the opportunity to talk with people with the same interests and goals in life"

Why Are You Successful?

Why Are You Successful

I am successful because of a series of very small daily victories.

For example: Everyday I exercise because I find that it keeps my mind sharp.
I don't say that I am going to exercise for 30 minutes.I say that I am going to
move for 2 minutes straight.When I get to the 2 minute mark I feel great
and I want to continue to move.I usually end up moving for 30 minutes.

I find that these very small daily victories really add up by the
end of the day.This allows me at the end each day to see the things
that I did accomplish and applaud myself for these things and not
beat myself up for what I did not do.

I go to bed each night with the fact that I accomplished many things
that day and the next morning I am eager to start the day.

I have found that it's not the size of the daily victory-accomplishment,
it's the fact that I accomplished something and that leads me to even
bigger accomplishments-victories each day.

That's great Bill Gold!

I used to think I was successful. Driving the big corporate car with the nice salary and benefits, exercising power in an organization, etc.. Then the bottom dropped out and I learned that success is far more than the accumulation of things you don't actually own.. lol.

I am now learning how to be successful. And it's comprised of the very things you shared.

I am successful in the way that I cannot fail. Every victory brings me closer to my goals. Every setback is education for the future. In this way I cannot fail, because to me failure does not exist. Its a re-frame get it

Success - it comes with every perspective of a certain person.
Perspective is a variable thing.

Success is also a journey.
What in my mind right now is.
To use all the things that has life to offer.
For one purpose.

That purpose is to unfold my potential.
All the things that has life to offer is just a matter of TOOLS.
Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be - Abraham Lincoln
