Five Keys to Success

September 4, 2018 | Filed under: Success

1. Success Requires Goals. Goals are the targets. Goals, objectives and action plans are the key to everyones success in life. One of my mentors, Charles Givens, said it this way. Don’t find yourself, design yourself. Determine what you want to become in life, and what you want in life. Then set targets and timeframes, to achieve different levels.

Make your goals, SMART. Specific, Measurable, Active, Realistic and Target or Timed. 

2. Push Past Failures.  Look just cause it did not work out the first time, does not mean the game is over. Keep playing. Keep trying. Steve Jobs was fired (his own company by the way). “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick.

Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.

You’ve got to find what you love.” –  Steve Jobs. 

Oprah Winfrey was fired from her first television job. Walt Disney was fired for no good ideas, and also, took his first company bankrupt.  Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting while he was living. Successful people do not give up.

3. Never doubt yourself. You must have faith. Faith in God. Faith in Self. Faith tomorrow is a brighter day. Your faith in your ideas, concepts, business, and self will force you to succeed. Keep your passion. Keep your commitment. Keep your persistence.

“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you are right.” – Henry Ford

4. Take a Risk. No one wins with risking. Don’t risk it all, make a safe bet. But success requires you to risk. Risk capital. Risk time. Risk emotions. Risk loss. Evaluate the upside, and down side. And if their is more win, than loss, take a chance. You never know where that might take you.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” – John D. Rockefeller

“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”– J. K Rowling

J.K. Rowling  worked on her book as a single mother. She was actually on welfare too. She was rejected dozens of times. Yet now she is the first ever Billionaire Author. Dreams do come true, but it often up to you. If you want success and achievement you have to find a way.

5. Be of Service to others.  Focus on being of service to others, and in the process get what you really want out of life. Karma is best received when given. Give first. Don’t be selfish.


“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.” Zig Ziglar

Oh. By the way. If you do make it the big time. Remember to give back. Just like: Gill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffet, Paul Allen, and Phil Knight. Who give hundreds of millions each year.
