Success Strategies: The 10 Commandments of SUCCESS
The 10 Commandments of SUCCESS
A while back, my good friend David Riklan of SelfGrowth.com published a great book on the top 101 "self help" experts. In it, he listed the "10 Commandments" of self help, personal development and self improvement. I thought it might be fun to take David's orignal list and modify it a bit to create "The 10 Commandments of SUCCESS."
I. Take Responsibility for Your Life
Dr. Phil McGraw: “Life Law: You Create Your Own Experience. Acknowledge and Accept Responsibility for your life.”
Stephen Covey: “Taking initiative does not mean being pushy, obnoxious, or aggressive. It does mean recognizing our responsibility to make things happen.”
Les Brown: “Accept responsibility fir your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”
Bob Proctor: “It’s your life, it’s your movie. You can make it anything you want to.”
Denis Waitley: “There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.”
II. Take Action
Dr. Phil McGraw: “Life Rewards Action. Make Careful Decisions.”
Anthony Robbins: “Take Massive Action.”
Napoleon Hill: “Tell the world what you intend to do, but first show it.”
Dale Carnegie: “The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.”
Jack Canfield: “Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.”
Napoleon Hill: “Those who reach decisions promptly and definitely know what they want and generally get it. The leaders in every walk of life decide quickly and firmly. That is the major reason why they are leaders. The world has a habit of making room for those individuals whose words and actions show that they know where they are going.”
III. Have Desire
Napoleon Hill: “Desire is the starting point of all achievement.”
Muhammad Ali: “Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.”
Mario Andretti: “Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”
Napoleon Hill: “A burning desire to be and to do is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness or lack of ambition.”
Earl Nightingale: “The key that unlocks energy is ‘Desire.’ It’s also the key to a long and interesting life. If we expect to create any drive, any real force within ourselves, we have to get excited.”
IV. Set Goals
Anthony Robbins: “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
Aristotle: “First, have a definite, clear practical ideal: a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.”
Maxwell Maltz: “People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project. Always have something ahead of you to ‘look forward to’ – to work for and hope for.”
Brian Tracy: “Every single life only becomes great when the individual sets upon a goal or goals which they really believe in, which they can really commit themselves to, which they can pot their whole heart and soul into.”
Zig Ziglar: “A goal properly set is halfway reached.”
V. Create a Plan
Unknown: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”
Napoleon Hill: “When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.”
Mark Victor Hansen: “The majority of people meet with failure because they lack the persistence to create new plans to take the place of failed plans.”
Napoleon Hill: “Your achievement can be no greater than your plans are sound. That may seem to be an axiomatic statement, but it is true. And no one is ever whipped until that person quits – in his or her own mind."
VI. Pay the Price
Vince Lomardi: “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”
Napoleon Hill: “Remember, there is no such possibility as something for nothing.”
Orison Swett Marden: “Success is the child of drudgery and perseverance. It cannot be coaxed or bribed; pay the price and it is yours.”
VII. Have Persistence
Calvin Coolidge: “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
Napoleon Hill: “Success does not respond to wishes. Success responds only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, thought constant persistence.”
Orison Swett Marden: “‘There is genius in persistence. It conquers all opposers. It gives confidence. It annihilates obstacles. Everybody believes in a determined man. People know that when he undertakes a thing, the battle is half won, for his rule is to accomplish whatever he sets out to do.”
Napoleon Hill: “There may be no heroic connotation to the word ‘persistence,’ but the quality is to a person’s character what carbon is to steel.”
Denis Waitley: “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.”
Anthony Robbins: “If you develop the absolute sense of certainty that powerful beliefs provide, then you can get yourself to accomplish virtually anything.”
Napoleon Hill: “The only limitation is that which one sets up in one’s own mind.”
Maxwell Maltz: “Realizing that our actions, feelings and behavior are the result of our own images and beliefs gives us the level that psychology has always needed for changing personality.”
Napoleon Hill: “The man who can is the man who thinks he can.”
David J. Schwartz: “The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect link achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too: Big ideas and big plans arc often easier – certainly no more difficult – than small ideas and small plans.”
IX. Learn From Your Mistakes
Winston Churchill: “All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.”
Oprah Winfrey: “There are no failures, only lessons to be learned.”
X. Create a Clear Picture of Your Future and Visualize It
Earl Nightingale: “Picture yourself in your mind’s eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you’ll he doing when you’ve reached your goal.”
Stephen Covey: “Create a clear, mutual understanding of what needs to be accomplished, focusing on what, not how; results not methods. Spend time. Be patient. Visualize the desired result.”
Unknown: “Visualization is not seeing things as they are, but seeing things as they will be.”
Robert L Schwartz: “The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and an actualizer. He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how lo make it happen.”
Some great material upon which to reflect . . .
Until next time, Peace Out and - Namaste!
