The Seven Rules for Success
1. You are the expert on you.
don't need anyone to tell you what you're like or what your are capable
of. Nobody else knows you as well as you do. Therefore, you are the
only person who can and should decided what is right for you. No-one
else's opinion matters.
2. You are not broken; you do not need to be fixed.
This may come as a shock to your friends and family who never tire of listing your faults and reminding you of your failures!
have a God given right to be exactly who you are, and decide what you
do with your life. You must embrace all of the qualities you possess,
good and bad. It is your job to enhance those qualities and use them to
your and everyone else's advantage - it's what makes your way unique.
3. You already have all the resources you need to succeed.
if you don't have the necessary skills required, you know how you can
get them. You know what you have to do to acquire them. What matters is
that you understand this about yourself. There is nothing that you
cannot achieve if you are sufficiently motivated.
4. You can achieve anything if you break down the task into small enough chunks.
a writer, you'll be aware of this one. Nobody writes a big book all in
one go. You have to break it down, building it one word at a time if
necessary. That's how all great people achieve anything - consistent,
even if sometimes only minimal action.
5. If what you're doing isn't working, you will do something else.
a fool keeps banging their head against a brick wall when it's clear
they're not knocking the thing down. A wise person, like yourself, will
change tack and try a different method for bringing down the wall - or
simply climb over it.
6. There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.
people are not lucky. They just got used to failing more than most.
That's how it works. You try lots of things, lots of new ventures and
projects. Some work out, some don't. It's a fact of life. You just need
to go with the ones that work.
7. You are creating your future NOW!
you are doing in the moment is creating an inevitable future. If you
wany to be successful in the future, you must start behaving like a
successful person now, this minute, and make the kinds of decisions
about your time and efforts that will bring about the future you want.
Okay? So now you know!
