I read this and wanted to share it with you because it makes a lot of sense.
First don’t confuse how much money one has as to his or her success!
These keys will not unlock any opportunities of success without first having a strong and unfailing Belief in yourself.
Please don’t go through life as your “own little god.” We encourage you to memorize these six keys by using the key word ADVICE.
Attitude: Bloom where you are planted. You have a choice to get back up after temporary set backs. Attitude is a small thing that makes a big difference!
Direction: If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. Write your short term goals down on paper. If you write your goals down on paper you focus your belief that they can be achieved–even if you have to take a course correction in achieving your goals. Success comes in cans, failure comes in can nots.
Values: Explore what is important to you. Maybe it is family, friends, your spirituality or working hard at any given task. You can be assured that your priorities will change as you progress.
Interests: Birds of a feather flock together. This is to say that if you are hanging around winners or others with a “can do” mind-set, you’ll likely adapt to this same kind of thinking. Remember–”SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES!
Commitment: Feelings may change, commitments do not. “Success is getting up one more time than you fall.” We often want to give up, and then I must think to myself about what the consequences of giving up will be. Generally, this is more than enough of a motivation to make us stick to the task at hand even if we don’t feel like it. When the task is achieved, Whow!–IT FEELS GREAT!
Encouragement: Be an encourager to friends and co-workers.. We tend to get what we give. We need to encouage others and they will return the favor. Find fault and they will find fault in you.
