Why Successful People Ignore the “How”
Did you know that You do NOT have to know HOW to do what is required to have what you want?
Not, that is, if it is your greatest wish to “be successful.” What does success mean to you? For me it is being ‘happy, healthy and wealthy’ in all areas of my life. I’m not one bit interested in a lot of financial riches without the rest. In Napoleon Hill’s classic Think and Grow Rich, Hill cites a group of highly financially successful US businessmen who were not happy or healthy, and all died in pretty short order. So they didn’t even get to ‘enjoy’ their riches. That’s not what I want for myself. What about you?
Not knowing HOW has people feel very uncomfortable when going after what we want … so, we simply STOP or as many say we ‘GET STUCK.’
I have learned that the ‘key’ to being successful is WHY I want what I want, not HOW!
You may have noticed that what I write about is always opposite of traditional thinking. Why do I do that? Because traditional thinking is for the masses, the sheeple, the people who simply ‘get through’ life. They struggle to make ends meet which most often causes illness and no certain success or measurable results. Anyone can become more aware by learning, but alas, the masses do not see the value in continued learning. That’s why there are so many of them!
And I have perfect Faith (from measurable personal and client results) that whenever there is a yes, a ‘no’ exists simultaneously. Where there is a bad economy, there is also, and at the same time, a fluorishing economy! WE get to say which it is! If we go along with everyone else, the masses, we’ll be wrong as they always have been and always will be.
Opposites … let’s take SMART Goals setting as example. It’s the perfect example of how mass mentality while pervasive, simply does not work!
Used in the automobile industry for decades … did it work? You tell me! That method does not work for corporations, small businesses, micro businesses or entrepreneurship.
Two of the 5 steps are simply inaccurate and do not lead to success. Yet it is still and was what the masses were using for mass results. If you are a success, you are not using that method.
You don’t have to be Ready! You must start NOW regardless of circumstances! You do not need money to start on your dream … another opposite! Most say, when I get this, have that, or kids are out of school … then I’ll start. It’s all about not knowing HOW. It’s “doing it afraid!” that makes a successful outcome!
You must have a desire or focus .. that’s the AIM.
You must take immediate action … that’s the FIRE.
You must be READY for reaping what you have planted!
Even the logo below is the opposite of what we ‘thought!’
The only HOW we need is one or two steps toward what we want.
THE HOW COMES ‘to you’ ONLY and once you are in ACTION, and not 1 second before.
Out of the box thinking leads to higher awareness of our infinite potential as human beings.
“Learning is the miracle grow for humans!”
