Success is very personal. No single formula fits everyone. Do What You Love and love what you do. Do you know that Success is not the key to happiness?. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing. Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. If you hate your job, you aren’t going to please your boss or your customers, so you aren’t going to succeed in the long run.
In a perfect world, each of us would have a job doing what we most enjoy doing. You got to choose a career that matches your strongest preferences and abilities. If you hate dealing with complaints, don’t work in customer service. If you want some room to be innovative, choose a smaller company. If you love being outdoors and working with your hands, don’t confine yourself with a desk job. Be flexible, but remember that you won’t be successful in a job you hate, and more important, you will have spent your life in unnecessary misery.
THE Word of Masters teaches that Overnight Success may come upon to someone suddenly, but it is usually the result of years of preparation. Be of Real Service to others, and Success Will Come to You. The man who is successful is the man who is useful. The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Balance Persistence with Attentive Observation and Change. You do not have to think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail. Insanity or “Iberiberism” is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. There is a fine line between perseverance and insanity. At what point have you tried your best, and it’s time to do something different? It’s a balance – a paradox.
If you get in the habit of giving up as soon as something gets difficult, you will never be a success in business, but if you keep tilting at windmills – madly trying the same thing again and again, you will also fail. Always be watchful for changes in competition, customer expectations, available technology, or other circumstances, that require, or offer the opportunity, for you to approach a problem from a new and better perspective. Think for Yourself Always listen to the experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it. You can never become successful as a cog in some corporate machine.
Never Stop Learning, Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation, there is sure to be failure. The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. Read, study, learn from others, and learn from the hard lessons of life. Keep refining and practicing what worked well. Change what hasn’t worked well. Roll with the Punches.
Fall seven times, stand up eight. Christ fell 14 times and still climbed the Calvary to obtain our salvation. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. Never give up. You will get knocked down many times in your career. It is your job to get up, shake yourself off, learn another lesson, and return to the challenge.
