The Science Behind Success

“Success Is The Sum Of Small Efforts – Repeated Day In And Day Out”*

My studies into the psychology of success taught me that the attributes of mind that are necessary for all great achievements.

It should be duly noted that by great achievements, I’m including those things that may be great to you personally. For instance, one of my great achievements was changing my bad habits into good habits. The world might not have cared or even noticed, but it changed my world.

Success may mean different things to different people, yet to me the quintessential meaning is making steady progress towards my personal goals.

Have you ever noticed that when you have a goal that you procrastinate on working towards, that you feel lousy about yourself?

You lie on the couch flipping channels, and you tell yourself that it’s okay – you’ll work on that goal tomorrow. Or even worse, you tell yourself – why bother anyways? Who am I trying to kid? I’m not good enough, or it’s just too hard, or it’s for those special people with all the luck.

“The Starting Point Of All Achievement Is Desire”*

Simply put, reaching a goal is like any skill or anything else that you want to learn how to do. There’s so many self-help books out there on virtually every subject, so if you want to be successful then study the science behind success.

That’s right! Science is based upon universal laws that are proven, indisputable facts that work all of the time. For example, just like the law of gravity works everywhere, for everyone, likewise success is also based on universal laws, and you can learn the rules that apply to it, just like two plus two always gets you four.

Because of my analytical, scientific mind, and after applying many of the universal laws that I learned, I’ve seen the results in my own life. I transformed my life by turning the pain of the past around and giving it positive meaning. Thus by changing the meaning of the past, I’ve altered my present and my future.

I’m evolving into what I was meant to be. After searching for my life’s purpose – the calling that beckons from within, I ‘m transcending towards my ultimate destiny, and it towards me. Fate often deals great cards to those who ask for a hand.

“The Key To Success Is Action, And The Essential In Action Is Perseverance”*

Because of the habitual negative thoughts that often haunt me, I learned how to change my beliefs, and how to break up my mental patterns. I have gradually and steadfastly become better than I ever was before. I mean – healthier, happier, richer, and more successful, and I’ve never felt better.

Dare to believe that you can achieve great things, and that you deserve the best that life has to offer. My catch phrase to overcome procrastination is a culmination of, “Do it now” from Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone, and Nike’s slogan “Just do it“. My phrase is “Just do it now”.

I make it a habit to heed it’s call. When my subconscious tells me to just do it now – I take immediate and enthusiastic action – no questions asked.

Studying the science behind success is indeed a noble pursuit because like all universal laws – you always get back what you give.

Perhaps, it can best be summed up by words from people like Emile Coue that I blended into my own habitual affirmations to suit my purpose…I am healthy, wealthy, happy, successful, and I am grateful because every day in every way, I am getting better and better.

Yet still like Jim Rohn said – “Affirmation Without Discipline Is The Beginning Of Delusion”

Action TNT

“Use The Explosive Power Of Taking Action TNT {Today Not Tomorrow}*

Coming up with a brilliant plan, invention, or idea, but not following through on it by taking action is kind of like planting the seed of a beautiful rose, yet never bothering to water it.

In fact, human beings were given the God like gift of being able to create songs, books, and other artistic forms of  expression, which are all like little seeds that if watered and nurtured with regular action could grow into things of beauty.

Yet unfortunately, most of us are conditioned since birth to take our place in line and live lives of mediocrity. We dream of what our life could be, we sense that we were given certain talents and abilities for a reason, but most of us settle for just wishing that we were like our idols. Why?

“Affirmation Without Discipline Is The Beginning Of Delusion”*

We give them fame, fortune, and awards because they got of the couch and got to work on their dreams. Can you imagine if the great Olympian Michael Phelps spent more time lying on the couch watching TV instead of swimming at the pool? Forget about winning all those metals – he wouldn’t have even made the team.

Many of us seem to think that greatness is for those other folks that have all the luck, connections, or the right genes. But all the greats in every field, even those with genetic advantages, still had to practice regularly in order to become the masters.

By now it should be obvious that taking action is what truly makes the difference. Everything from exercising regularly and eating well, getting a great job and finding a soul-mate, to making your dreams come true, takes action – the more, the merrier.

So how do we develop the habit of taking action?

“All You Need Is The Plan, The Road Map, And The Courage To Press On To Your Destination”*

First of all, dare to believe in yourself because anything anyone else can do, you can also do, if you believe that it’s possible. Model others by finding out how they did it, and when in doubt use common sense, logic, and action TNT.

Since only 3% of all people put their major goals in writing, and those same 3% enjoy more wealth than all the other 97% combined – put your definite major purpose in writing. Then list the steps that you need to take in order to reach them.

The steps don’t have to be perfect – yet, but by taking action you’ll learn from any mistakes, so that you can adjust accordingly. Either way, you’ll get that exhilarating feeling that accompanies getting to work on your dreams.

“Ability Is What You’re Capable Of Doing. Motivation Determines What You Do”*

Get and keep motivated by turning that spark of hope into a white hot blazing inferno of desire by visualizing your goal frequently.

Use the power of assumption by acting the part of the type of person that you long to be, as if it were already your reality, especially when you’re working on your dreams.

Pray to a Higher Power, or to your subconscious mind for help and guidance then have the faith that the way will be shown unto you.

“Attitude Determines How Well You Do It”*

In Lead The Field {<Free Audiobook}, Earl Nightingale refers to attitude as the “magic word” because whether something turns out to be great or below par depends a lot on your attitude of mind.

This is why developing a positive mental attitude is the key to unlocking the treasures that lie dormant within you. All of your talents and gifts will be called in to aid you in your purpose when you get in sync with the power of a positive mental attitude.

The right attitude will foster the enthusiasm that will help you to take action even when others try to rain on your parade, or fear rears its ugly head.

“Everything Is Learnable”*

The secret to accomplishing any worthwhile endeavor lies in studying up on it, and learning how to harness the natural forces of your mind and universal law. By reading and listening to self-help books & audios, you’ll discover the ways to make your dreams come true.

Of course, taking the time to learn all of those life changing insights is taking action in and of itself, but they won’t mean much unless you take them to the next level by using them.

Then and only then will you discover that the dynamic and explosive power of taking action TNT is what completes the miracle process.

Top 10 Goal Setting Tips

“Most People Go To Where The Puck Is, I Go To Where It’s Going To Be”*

Writing your goals down on paper seems like such a simple step, but less than 3% of the population ever bother to do it. Yet those same 3% own more wealth than all of the other 97% combined.

It’s power lies in the fact that before you can achieve anything worthwhile, you must know exactly what it is that you want. After all how can you make your dreams come true if you’re unclear about what they are?

The law of cause and effect states that you always reap what you have sown. In other words, whatever you plant in the fertile soil of your imagination with clarity of vision, then nurture with action, will inevitably reap you a bountiful harvest.

“As You Think, So You Become”*

By putting your goals on paper, you activate The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind {<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy. Which then sets in motion the law of attraction because whatever you think about the most starts to flow towards you as you move toward it.
