Simply stated, success is the achievement of worthwhile, personally defined goals, whether they are large or small.  One cannot be successful without goals and the attainment of these goals.  Just to survive, one must meet goals related to the minimum threshold of survival needs.  How well one meets their human needs and personal goals determines not only their degree of success in life but their overall happiness as well.  To satisfy either a need or a goal requires the expenditure of energy, sometimes known as hard work.  Thus, meeting needs and attaining goals has a price.  The wisest people find effective and efficient ways to achieve success at minimum cost.  The very wisest pick the means to goals that they enjoy doing so the effort is not ever considered work but part of the joy of getting there.   For these lucky few, both the journey and the destination are goals that bring its own source of rewards and happiness.


Goals equal success.

Brian Tracy, Maximum Achievement


Success need not be a competition with others, but simply a personal effort to achieve self-generate goals.  There is enough success to go around for everyone.  This is called the abundance mentality.


There is enough success to go around for everyone.

Jake Steinfeld, Power Living by Jake


There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want, and second, to enjoy it. Logan Pearsall Smith


Success is a mental picture, a thought of what we have achieved relative to what we intended to achieve.  If someone believes they should be more successful, but in reality they aren’t as successful as they desired themselves to be, this thinking could lead to inner stress.  Most people are as successful as they make up their mind to be.  In reality, people are responsible for what they choose to do or not do.  People achieve the amount of success consistent not only with the time and energy they put into their goals but also the goals they set for themselves.  Some goals are simply far more difficult than they can handle.


To motivate yourself, use future possibilities to draw you towards present actions.   The pull towards a compelling future can be as powerful as the push away from a troubled past if we learn how to harness its power.   Become future oriented and let a positive vision pull you towards it.[1]    


Deciding what you really want is the starting point of all great achievement and success.[2]

Before beginning a discussion about success and how to have it more abundantly, it is best to define the term – success – so that one can know whether they have it or not in their life.


Success is Good Heath & Vitality


Every human has needs that must be satisfied to survive and thrive.  “Five vital interests are security, subsistence, equality, personal freedom, and recognition as a worthy member of the human community.”[3]  The better able one can establish goals to meet these needs and then to satisfy them, the more successful they are in living in a good, comfortable, and satisfying life.   According to the philosopher David Wiggins, people “need” something if going without it will harm them and degrade their long-term survival chances.  Time and energy are critical human resources that cannot be squandered.  Knowing why, when and how to use them are critical decisions.  Not every need can and should be satisfied.  Spending time and energy on one goal deprives these resources from being used on other goals. Some needs may be desirable but they might not be worth the effort it takes to earn them.  Deciding whether a goal is worth working towards is a key life skill that determines success in life.  The satisfaction of key needs enable a person to live a good human life.     


Needs provide for the crucial connection between subjective values and objective ones.  Goals are often centered around areas where humans spend most of their time, in relationships, working, and playing.   “Love, work, and play are not arbitrary wants, but are closely tied with vital human needs for relatedness, competence, and autonomy.  Vital needs are properties and relationships that people require to live as human beings.   Because love, work, and play help to satisfy vital needs, they can constitute the meaning of life normatively as well as descriptively. Ideally, every day should have some element of love, work, and play in them.  In the best of all worlds, significant synergy and leverage are gained when a person is able to combine activities that permit combinations of love, work, and play.”[4]            One of the best things one can do for him or her self is to set reasonable goals concerning love, work, and play and expend time, energy, and money in their pursuit.


The more successful we are in life, the more resilient we are to life’s setbacks.   “Precious successes in love, work and play provide the resilience we need to cope with the inevitable surprises that life throws at us.  Hopelessness is unjustified as long as there are some prospects in one's life for satisfaction of some important goals.”[5]


The act of adding more positivity to one’s life is a wise and profitable investment in the world around us, and most importantly, in ourselves.


“When stress levels run high, some people are more likely than others to self-generate positivity and effect their own rapid cure.  The positivity emotions of serenity and amusement hold the key to faster health recovery.”[6]


Survival is the second law of life.  The first is that we are all one.   

Barbara L. Fredrickson, Positivity        


Success is Sufficient Wealth


Success for some people is having material wealth and not having to worry about having enough money problems to pay their bills.  Frank Minirth suggests that the antidote to worry is knowing God.[7] .


Money provides the means to avoid many inconveniences and can solve most money problems.  Most problems in live can be divided into people and money problems.   By virtue of having money, it means one has ready solutions to money problems.  If the car breaks down or you need medical services, you have the money to take care of it.  Many people problems can be resolved with money.  It has been said that money makes a person less ugly and their eccentricities more tolerable.


Positivity builds psychological strengths.  Optimistic people become more optimistic, more open, more accepting, more driven by purpose.


Positivity tends to endow a person with greater coping resources, which means they can better tolerate adverse situation and still bound back quicker.   Positivity introduces greater tolerance and resilience to adversity.   As one adds more resources to their hardiness bank account, there is more resilience to draw upon later when faced with hardships, challenges, setbacks or the challenge of forging new opportunities.


He knows not his own strength that has not met adversity.

Cesare Pavese


Success is Sufficient Wisdom


Many people equate success with knowledge and wisdom, which allows them to do the right thing at the right time and in the right way.


Success is Optimism and Positivity


Some people view that success means they view the future with optimism and look forward to their days ahead.  The question that needs to be answered is whether success breeds optimism or does optimism breed success.


Positivity produces success in life as much as it reflects success in life.            


Success is Longevity and Followed by a Good Death



For some people, success is a long, healthy life, free of pain and disability.  At the end of a long life, people prefer to avoid suffering and disabilities that distract from a decent quality of life.  If they can life a long life and end life without suffering, then their life has been successful.


Success is Happiness


What everyone says they want more than anything else is happiness.    Everything else is just commentary or a means to that end.  Happiness and success are often taken as synonymous.   But which one of them comes first?  Does success breed happiness or does happiness breed success?


Success is Nobility, Virtue, and Righteousness


To some people, they cannot be happy without living a virtuous life.   Piety and nobility of doing the right things are paramount to success.  


Chapter 2 - Success is a Managed Process


Success sometimes happens haphazardly, but most often, success is a result of a deliberate intention. “You are what you are and where you are right now because you have decided to be there.”  You could have decided to be someone else and be somewhere else.  But you didn’t.  If you consider yourself or any of your endeavors to be a failure, it is often due to the fact that most people will choose the path of least resistance or short cuts in life.  Success demands a price, and if you aren’t prepared to pay it, then success will elude you.  Before you start out in quest of any goal, determine in advance the price you will have to pay to get it, and then resolve to pay that price.   You will know the price you will have to pay to get any goal only when success is sitting right there in front of you.


The achievement of any goal is essentially the result of a change in yourself or external circumstances.  So, to achieve success, you must learn to set goals and master change.


All goal achievement requires change.

Brian Tracy, Maximum Achievement


Goal setting allow you the choice of shaping your future starting right now.  The benefit of goal setting is that goals allow you to control the direction and shape of change.


Chapter 3 – Step I – Goal Setting


The definition of success is distinctively related to achieving needs-based goals.  So, the presence of goals, which satisfy important needs, is essential to success.  Without goals, your life is unguided and any success is due to happenstance.   The only way to control your life and success is with goals with you consciously set for an array of human needs and then achieve.   If you want more success, then you need to set more goals and work persistently towards them.  


Goals equal success.

C. W. Sooter


If success is the result of a process, then the process must include the declaration of goals as one of the preliminary steps.  Success or goal achievement begins with the identification of goals associated with the gambit of human needs.  Not all goals are equally attractive.  The key to happiness is not just in picking goals but also in picking goals we care about.  The only good goals are those that excite us sufficiently to do something about them and motivate us to persevere during the hard times.   Goals that don’t inspire action are the same as no goals at all.


Some goals are chosen because of the destinations we want to reach.  Other goals we pick because we need to reach those destinations by way of a journey.   Goals might be chosen because they are related to our life’s work, the things we love to do and arrive at destinations or ends we care about.  Other goals are just the grunt work that we must do to sustain life or the means by which we develop the abilities or develop new opportunities potentially leading to more distant but desired ends.   It helps to know if the purpose of a goal is a ‘means to an end’ or if it is directed to a high-order end.  A means-goal is has many different ways in which is might be satisfied.  On the other hand, an ends goal or destination usually has a limited number of ways for being satisfied.  For example, if the goal is to get married, any number of persons might satisfy this goal, since marrying anyone will achieve the goal of being married.   If the goal is to marry someone in particular, then the means options are narrowed to just that particular someone.  Often, it is difficult to make the distinction between means and ends and most people don’t bother to distinguish between the two.  For instance, are the needs for relationships and wealth a means or an end?  Some might say they are goals to an end because they fill important human needs.  Other might claim that relationships and wealth are the means to higher order ends such as stimulation, acceptance, and security.  Whether a goal is a means or an end doesn’t matter so much because both the journey and the destination (the results) bring us fulfillment, satisfaction, and happiness. Every goal we pick is important if we think it so. 


Since we have a limited ability to purse goals, we must choose them wisely.  We only have so much time and energy.  We can’t do everything, or least, we can’t do everything at once.  We must schedule our goals along a timeline.  Naturally, the most important goals should get the highest priority.  However, goals generally follow a natural, logical order and sequence, which needs to be respected.  For example, one must get date before getting engaged and before getting married.


Goals should have both breath and depth, covering all aspects of human needs from health to wealth.  Goals should short and long term.  For the more important aspects of our life, our goals should be planned in depth for the long term.  


Opportunity Finding


The purpose of a goal is to meet an unfulfilled want (a means to a plethora of needs) or need directly.  The unfulfilled want or need always precedes a declaration of a goal as the means for fulfillment.  Since our needs are only temporarily satisfied constant, we are constantly in a quest for ways to satisfy them.  Most of our needs are satisfied with our daily habits, routines and repetitive behaviors.  For the more difficult and long-term needs, which are not easily satisfied with our normal run-of-mill, daily grind, we need to set deliberate, conscious goals.   An important unfulfilled need presents us with a problem that requires a solution.


For every problem of an unfulfilled need, there are often many readily available solutions.  Some solutions are seen and some are not, because we haven’t yet creatively perceived them as such.  Our mind simply have not been conditioned or fine-tuned to see them.   Everywhere around us are opportunities that remain unseen as solutions to the problem of unmet needs.  When we finally connect with opportunities, we are often invigorated by the prospect of gain.  


The best opportunities are those that offer higher than normal gains for lesser than normal sacrifices.  Everyone carries around in their mind a balance sheet of what they want versus what they are willing to pay for it in terms of resources (time, energy, and money).  Everyone is a well-trained shopper in the marketplace of life, and they carry a mental tablet in their head of prospective rewards and costs.  Since everyone has a limited budget (time, energy, and money), everyone looks for how they can get as many of their wants and needs satisfied as possible with the limited resources they have available.   “Look for opportunities to express your values in positive ways (the products you see to satisfy your important needs).”[8] Life is a marketplace where we go shopping everyday with both a mental list of 1) what we want to acquire for ourselves and 2) the limited budget of resources we have available to us to expend.   We are constantly on the lookout for bargains.   If we find something at the bazaar that is on our want list, and the price has been reduced, it suddenly becomes a bargain and we buy it.   Likewise, if we find a new product at the bazaar that will satisfy a need better than normal options and the price is affordable; we are inclined to expend our resources to realize our perceived gains.  In other words, opportunities are like bargains, and the more of them we find and take advantage of, the more needs we are able to satisfy.


Fortunately, there are opportunities or bargains everywhere; we just need to keep our eyes open and our antennas up.   “Always be looking for the next opportunity coming your way that you have opened by what you did today.”[9]  Sometimes, all it takes to find a bargain is to search for one.   Interestingly, an opportunity in one area often clears a pathway for success in several others.[10]        


There is no security on this earth; there is only opportunity.

John-Roger & Peter McWilliams, Do It


Some of the best opportunities are not seen, because they are hidden behind some preliminary work (time and energy) to prod them out of the woodwork.   “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks suspiciously like work.”[11]  Opportunities never come to those who wait; only those few who dare to attack and seize it will capture them.[12]  Opportunities are never lost, because if you miss it or don’t take, someone else will. 


Optimism is the tendency to expect the best possible outcome in every situation.

Denis Waitley, the Psychology of Success


Most success is due to opportunities that were just ripe and therefore destined to work out and those that don't work out weren't ripe or not suppose to work out.  One must make the decision whether to continue to purse difficult and elusive opportunities or to cut one's losses and move on to the next deal.[13]            


There are many ways people can conceptualize the creation of something that would be considered of value to others.  “They can take something that is little or no value and visualize how it could be made valuable. They can construct a picture in their mind of what commercial value would look like, then alter sometime close to it until it begins to create its own demand.   They can take something that is already valuable and increase its value or buy it and hold it until it does have value.”[14]


Creating Options


An option is a solution to a problem that one could execute or not.   Having a portfolio of options as ready-made solutions to unmet needs is like money in the bank.  You can withdraw an option at any time for use to meet a need without having to take the time to invent one.  Options have value and considered by some as useful as any other resource such as time, energy, and money.  


People with perception, foresight, and creativity invent options for personal and mutual gain. If you don’t need the solution an option provides, you can always offer it to some in need who is likely to reciprocate in kind.


Goal Clarity


People have a greater chance of achieving their goals if they only understood what they are.   Once you can clearly visualize your goal and link it to an unfulfilled need, you are ready to begin the journey to its quest.   Ideally, every goal has a characteristic that is measurable so you will be able to verify the extent to which you have or have not achieved it.  Then, as you work towards the final objective, record progress to sustain your motivation to continue the pursuit and also as a means of verifying that you have arrived at your destination when the goal is achieved.  Count and record what is important as a way to measure the progressive movement towards any goal.[15] 


Some people believe that they must motivate themselves before they begin working on any goal.  However, motivation does not have to be present before taking the first step.  In fact, taking any action toward a goal, no matter how small,  is the first logical step, because action induces motivation.  Motivation tends to follow action.  You might be more pleased with many good, solid performances than with one stress-producing masterpiece.[16]          


The Destination


Without a destination or end objective, there can be no success.  Success means the attainment of important goals.   Goals are the way you translate dreams into reality.  But our dreams must be tempered by prayer, faith, hope, and above all, realism.[17] Goals serve as magnets drawing you towards them.  Living a full life means having goals in all dimensions of life, including the physical, mental, and spiritual.  “People are often pursuing goals of economics without due consideration of associate goals of humanity.”[18]


All goals imply an imagined future that is different and ideally better than the status quo.   A goal implies a unrealized destination which is a change from what exists now to some envisioned future conditions.  To achieve a change in outer conditions, one must be willing to make changes in themselves, as they allocate resources of time, money, and energy to creating the conditions necessary for the goal to be achieved.  “When you set a goal, you must ask, how do you need to be different, how do I need to think differently, and how do I need to act differently.”[19] 


“If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?  Find a compelling future, find and deal with barriers to reach it, make an action plan.  Don't get so hung up on the goal that you ignore or rush the process.”[20]                


The more focused and clear your goal, the more efficiently you can find the way to achieve it.  “The narrower your goal, the faster you'll get there.  Much less investment is required for small dreams.  Letting go of unimportant goals frees up resources you can devote to the more important dreams.”[21]  “Goals won't seem nearly as unreachable if you realize you can get there one step at a time, by degrees.”[22]   


Every goal should have three qualities: 1) achievable, so that you don’t frustrate yourself in trying to achieve the impossible, 2) significant, so its achievement will make a positive difference in your life, and 3) measurable, so you will know it has been achieved.  


If you can’t measure a goal, then it is too indefinite to develop plans to achieve.  “You only improve what you measure.  Goals should always focus on action that you can control in getting the desired results.”[23]             Cultivate the habit of knowing exactly what you want from life and envision it in such as way that it is concrete in your mind.  The more vivid the mental image, the better it is for the subconscious mind to guide the way.


Goals are dynamic; they tend to change with time.  “Create definite goals towards which you are constantly working and change these goals to suit your needs in the years to come.”[24]


There are five particularly hard goals: 1) goals that are outside your comfort zone, 2) goals that go beyond what is expected or required, 3) goals that are too hard to be done alone, 4) goals that don't earn an immediate payoff, and 5) goals that challenge us because they are beyond our current abilities.[25]      


Everything is easy if you know how to do it.

Commitment to Goals     


We only run out of goals when we die.  Only when we cease to live, do we give up attempting to fulfill our basic human needs. In the meantime, we should view ourselves as goal seeking creatures.  You may run out of time in this lifetime, but you should never allow yourself to run out of commitment.[26]   The best way to begin any new project is with a firm commitment.  The ultimate test of commitment is action.[27]  Decide what you're committed, what's worth pursuing, and what you are willing to sacrifice to achieve it.[28]            Once you are committed, there is nothing that will stop you from reaching the goal you seek except yourself.




If we want success, we must be sufficiently motivated to fight for it.  It is easier to gain success if you can attract it to yourself rather than chasing after it. 


We do not attract what we want but what we are.

James Allen


You attract what you have into your life by who you are.  Unfortunately, what you attract may not be necessarily what you want.  By changing your beliefs – what you are - you can change who you are.  People are not so much the sum total of their cellular material but what they believe they are.     That which you so desire to have in your life already exists somewhere, you just have to find a way to connect with it.  Once you are connected, you cannot be stopped because your thoughts are aligned with the spiritual power of God.   You do not attract what you want; you attract what you are.[29]      



Become the person you need to become to get where you want to go in life.

Jake Steinfeld, Power Living by Jake 




It takes courage to leave your comfort zone and strive for something new and better.  Motivation can make one courageous.   Motivation supplies sufficient reasons to be courageous in the face of resistance to your goals.  Motivation does not guarantee the courage to change your life, but it certainly helps.  Any motivation is relative, and so, any goal motivation must be comparatively stronger than the motivation to quit or all the other motivations functioning simultaneously within you.[30]


When we believe that we are capable of succeeding at a task and the task is linked to some compelling goal, we become both motivated and courageous.  We magically find ways to take action.   Without both a compelling reason and a belief in our capability, inertia and inactivity hold us back.  When we have sufficient motivation, we develop the courage to sweep aside any challenge that gets in our way.




People have wants and needs but some of them are more important than others.   A burning desire cannot be denied.  We build our own fire to motivate our selves.


When a man's willing an eager, God joins in.



The only thing you need to reach the ecstatic state of joy is simply something to be passionate about.  The mere presence of passion within you, and the enthusiasm that comes with it, is all you need to fulfill your dreams.  Self-actualized people have a compulsion to become what they can become.[31]


Enthusiasm signifies God within us.

Madame de Stael 


Chapter 4 – Step II – Belief


You must believe in yourself if you are to attain any goal.  Without a strong belief in your ability to reach your destination, why would you even bother to start the journey?  It is not the reality of the situation that we must worry about but how we view them.  Tony Robins states that it's not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.  If the belief is not there, it will be hard to develop the motivation to proceed towards any goal.  The rewards inherent in a goal may be compelling, but if you don’t believe the goal is attainable, you will dismiss the goal as impossible.   Thus, the second step in the process of achieving success is to believe that a goal is possible for you to attain.  It's those who don't know it can't be done who often succeed in doing the impossible.


You can if you believe you can.

Dr. Frank Minirth, You Can


Believing in Yourself


Motivation is just a matter of creating more forces pushing in the direction you want to go and removing more forces that are resisting your efforts.  If you really want to do hard things, you must get ride of some of the old things that are holding us back.[32]


Whatever you state of mind or belief in yourself, it can be changed both in reality and in perception.  Whatever is hard can be mastered. Whatever skills you need, you can get.  Whatever blocks your path, you can remove.  You just need a basic belief in your ability to do what needs to be done at the exact moment you need to do it.  


If you suffer from a lack of faith in your innate abilities, you can bolster it.  Believing in yourself comes from both your conscious and subconscious beliefs.   If you hold the belief that somehow, you are not good enough, this belief alone will hold you back and limit the amount of success you achieve in your life.             “Most individual limit themselves; it's not God who limits them.”[33]         


If you suffer from a lack of faith or belief in yourself, you need to change them right now, because this belief will limit what you achieve for the rest of your life.   What are the thoughts behind your belief that you are not good enough?  Ask yourself, what must I be, do, or have that will make me good enough?   You may have many answers to that question, so write them down.  As you think of new answers, add them to the list.


Then, begin to systematically challenge every negative belief on the list.  Find convincing evidence to challenge each and every negative belief.  If you belief that you are not good enough because you lack critical skills, then reminder yourself that you can either learn those skills or find an expert who has them.   Then, every time a negative belief arises, you must challenge it with the positive belief until you are convinced in the logic of the positive.


You can boost your public standing/image, reputation, and self-esteem by developing an expertise in one or more areas of your interest.  It doesn’t take much information and understanding to become versed in a topic.  Read some books and articles and then begin writing about those aspects of the topic that most interests you.  Find ways to get your ideas out into the main stream.   Set up a Blog and start writing articles about the subject you are passionate about.[34]             If you can intelligently converse in the subject matter, you become a semi-expert, and people will give greater weight to your opinion.


Expanding Your Comfort Zone


Everyone lives in his or her own prescribed comfort zone, because living there is more comfortable than living anywhere else.  The best comfort zone is the one we prescribe and design for ourselves rather than forced upon us by others.   Unfortunately, our comfort zones restrict us when it comes to making the changes we need to reach our goals.    People often give up wonderful goals that might greatly enrich their life just because it requires them to stick their neck outside of their comfort zone.  Our comfort zones take our greatest aspirations and turn them into excuses for not bothering to aspire.[35]        


When outside your comfort zone, lean on higher power for strength.

C. W. Sooter


Five actions will take you out of your comfort zone: 1) willingness to take risks, 2) desire to purse excellence, 3) thinking big and seeking the rewards of action, 4) belief in yourself and the mission, and 5) willingness to stand up for what is right.[36]


The feelings of discomfort when we step outside our comfort zone is just the energy needed to boost us to use our full capabilities to engage the world on behalf of our dream.   Whatever you find most uncomfortable, be willing to do it.  You may not have to do it, but we willing to.  Instead, plan and expect to be uncomfortable.  Learn to be comfortable with discomfort.  The excess of comfort is the bane of all our ills (the source of all that ails us).  There is a time for us to be comfortable and a time to be uncomfortable.  Plan to be uncomfortable as you work towards hard goals.  Learn to be comfortable with discomfort.  The first step to success is a willingness to be uncomfortable by leaving your comfort zone.[37]           


Wherever we are headed, we need endurance to finish the race we select for ourselves.  If we run out of steam before we finish the race, “Let each of us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”[38]


Pursue excellence; not excuses.

Alex & Brett Harris, Do Hard Things


Happiness Comes Before Success


People often debate, which comes first, success or happiness.  Some claim that happiness is the result of living a successful life.  Others claim the opposite; happy people are successful people.  The theory that happiness comes before success gives people who strive for success a new venue in their quest for achieving goals.   “Success is not the result of making money; making money is the result of success.”[39]  Instead of starting with an effort to achieve success, a good source of preparation is to find legitimate ways to make yourself happy first.


People who succeed generate excitement in the projects they are involved in. “The real secret of success is enthusiasm.”[40]  People who fail generate trepidation and fear in whatever projects they undertake.  A successful person is one who can identify what his Natural Child personality wants out of life and then let his Adult personality figure out how to make it profitable. The key to success is to know if something you want is attainable at a reasonable price.  If a goal is not attainable at a price you are willing to pay, you would be foolish to under take it, because you will lose more than you gain.  If a goal is attainable and profitable in terms of the gains, you surely want to purse it.   The profitable goals you have the resources to purse, the more rewards you reap.  A rational success seeker is attracted to goals with the prospect of high gains and repelled by goals with the prospect of high costs.  If you don’t get this decision rule right, you will suffer from a lifetime of frustration by the outcomes of your choices.   The irrational thoughts that spur you on to pursue unattainable goal or to shun attainable goals need to be examined so they can be modified.[41]    


Success is getting what one wants at an affordable price.

Jason & McHahon, Power to Change Your Life


Like happiness, success is not something that you gain directly.  You must focus your attention on goal achievement.  The people who achieve goals are people of character, who value the work ethic and apply the principles of success.  No goal is achieved without hard work.  But applying the success principles can condense the amount of work required to achieve success. 


Try not to become a man of success, but a man of value.

Albert Einstein




Your subconscious mind offers a way to leverage the power of your conscious or thinking mind.   There is much that goes on in our brain without our conscious awareness.   If this power source is used to our advantage, it gives us leverage in our quest for achieving our goals.  The subconscious mind can be harnessed to serve the conscious mind if the right commands are given.  “Your conscious mind commands and your subconscious mind obeys.  For example, once you set a goal, it is your subconscious mind that works to bring to your attention the things you need to do to make your goals and dreams a reality. ”[42]


Here are some ways to elicit the power of the subconscious mind.  First, focus your conscious mind clearly on the goals you have set for yourself.  Keep your attention on a vivid image of what the final destination looks and feels like.  Whatever your conscious mind dwells upon grows in importance to the subconscious mind.  The more you repeatedly think about something, the more it becomes part of your reality.  Second, eliminate the resistances that are holding you back.  Most resistance to change is due to fears of loss, failure, or hard work.  You can replace any negative or fearful thought that may be troubling with its positive equivalent if it is repeated often enough.  Third, if you find yourself in difficulty in reaching your goal, then to get out of any problem, stop talking about the problem and start thinking about the solution.  Fourth, anytime you begin to doubt the outcome of any action you are about to take, close your eyes, visualize the ideal outcome, feel the tantalizing success of that moment, and take a few deep breaths and release the outcome to God.  Then, resume your activities.


Chapter 5 – Step III – Action Oriented


Nothing happens without action.  Good intentions and goal setting will get you no where until you are prepared to invest time and effort.  To become successful, you must be action oriented.  The rule, act first; think second, is a better guideline than sitting on an opportunity until it disappears.   Even if you stumble on the first step, you had to take it just to find out what’s out there.  Life will teach us what we need to know to succeed so long as we endeavor, we will find a way.


It's not how well you start but where you're headed that counts most.

Alex & Brett Harris, Do Hard Things


Action Oriented


Those who are successful don’t wait for success to come to them; they go after success.  “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly at first.  Anything worth doing is worth failing at and trying again.”[43]  Once you get started and the blood and momentum are flowing, you can always correct course as you begin to see your way through the thicket.                       


The people who get on in this world are those who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.   The thing that gets us to our goal is action.  “Everything is best learned by doing.“ [44]  To do something is far better than to think about doing it.  Even is what you do is wrong, the feedback from results will tell you what you need to know to succeed.[45]  For more personal satisfaction, take action.  Sometimes, the actions will go awry and we will do the wrong things.  We can self-correct our actions as we go.   Our path to success might not have been perfect, in hindsight, but we often get the desired results faster than if we took our time and developed the perfect plan.  We should be grateful that we have the ability to recognize mistakes when we make them. [46]


Everything comes to him to hustles while he waits.

Thomas Edison


By acting promptly, you make things happen. And with a little practice and planning, you can make them happen your way.[47]    


Practice makes perfect only if the practice is perfect.

Loehr and Schwartz, The Power of Full Engagement


Action is the first law of the universe.  Without action, nothing happens.  All the mental resolve in the world does no good unless you use it to drive yourself towards some kind of action. Well begun is half done.[48]  It is better to start too early than too late.  If you are too early, you have the chance to self-correct and begin again.  Start now in what seems like a noble adventure and figure out how to finish it later. 


I like the way I do it better than the way most people don't do it.

Dr. Frank Minirth, You Can 



Planning is a rewarding effort to define the journey, but don’t do too much of it. It is better to have a premature start than to dwell at the starting line, waiting for the perfect time to begin.   You only need enough planning to get you started, ideally in the right direction.  The power of planning is to build your confidence that you start energetically with a full head of steam.  A good enough plan is always better than a perfect plan, because every plan sows the seeds of its own destruction.  There are always unknowns and improper assumptions built into every plan.   A good plan describes the general route to be followed during the journey to the intended destination and leaves the details of the action to the moment they are needed and not before.  


The most important part of the plan is the planning and not the plan itself, which most likely will continually be modified throughout the journey to keep with fast moving circumstances that will be out of our control.  In addition to unplanned detours, any journey will present unexpected opportunities as well.  “When you have a good enough plan, it prepares you for all the opportunities that present themselves along the way.”[49]  “As long as you are actively involved in pursuing your goal, there will always be a next time.”[50]            


“To begin any project, ask questions about purpose, consult with the wise, involve friends, use technology wisely for leverage, accept criticism, and give away the credit for success.”[51]  “Plan backwards to develop a roadmap on how to get from where you are to where you want to go."[52]


Prepare a written plan for any crisis or significant goal in advance so you will know what to do every step along the way: 1) What personal value am I committed to, 2) Outline the goal (specific, measurable, and achievable), 3) Plan the steps needed to achieve the goal, 4) Develop intermediate sub goals and reward yourself, 5) Know what you can do and what only God can do, then pray for God's assistance on His part, 6) Listen for God to inspire you with fresh ideas, 7) Evaluate, refine, and try again, 8) Refuse to give up until you reach your destination.[53]


Hard Work


The reason most people lack an action orientation is that it often leads to hard work.  If you want more success, you must put yourself on the line more often and be willing to accept the prospect of hard work.  Hard work pays off in the long run with more results…success.  The old adage, “the more you train and sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war”, the very reason why it pays to stay in motion.   Not only do you get more done, but he find more opportunities as well.  Likewise, the more you prepare for success, the easier and faster you achieve it. 


“The teen years are not a vacation from responsibility but the training ground of future leaders who dare to be responsible now.  Everyone who competes against the best must go into strict training to develop their best performance.  The teen years are the primary time God has given us for strict training.  At no other time are we better positioned to decide who we will become.”[54]    


Work is the price that must be paid to gain any goal.  If a goal didn’t require work, you’d have it already.  “People enjoy the harvest but not necessarily the hard work in sowing and cultivating. We enjoy being fit and strong, but we don't enjoy exercise.[55]   “The common denominator for success is hard work.”[56] “The path that requires more effort also provides more rewards.”[57]            “A man can bear any what if he has a big enough why.”[58]  “One of the prerequisites of success is to keep your desire for the object of your desires burning brightly by continually visualizing and thinking about all the benefits, satisfactions, and rewards you will enjoy as a result of achieving your goal. So, think about your goals all the time. “[59]


Work makes life better.

Loehr and Schwartz, The Power of Full Engagement



Time Management


Everyone has the same amount of time in a day.   Not everyone has an equal number of days.  Success depends on using your time well.  Time management is the means by which you allocate your time according to your priorities.  You decide how you allocate your time, and you can supply any activity with an unlimited stream of time of your choosing.[60]  If you don’t have sufficient time to devote to a task, it is only because you chose not to.


You will not always be in control over the conditions necessary for success, but you can usually control your time.  Those who want to succeed don’t stop; they dare to go forward despite the obstacles in their way.  “Life is not about success or failure but it is about being in command of what you choose to do no matter what happens to you.”[61]          


The factors you need to control to ensure success are defined as the critical success factors.  One of the success factors is time spent in action towards a goal, and you can control that factor.  Once you identify the other success factors, you must strive to control them.  “Identify what is missing (in the critical success factors) that if it could be provided, produce a breakthrough.  Explore all possibilities to create a sense of what is missing versus improving what already exists.”[62]  “Only a few things really matter - the vital few 20%, everything is just noise.[63]     




Few people get to where they are going by themselves.   We need the support of others to get what we want out of life.  Connections and collaboration with others helps provide information, complementary skills, and motivation to proceed toward worthwhile goals. Always be developing your idea-implementation network.[64]




By living our dream, we can contribute not only to ourselves, but also to everyone and everything around us (the power of the invisible hand).[65]            The best way to ensure a richer life and a more fulfilling existence is to increase your contributions to life.[66]          




Sometimes what you choose to do is not for the money but for the experience that will take you to the next level.[67]  Something we do things, not because the action was necessary, but because it was necessary to make us the person who is able to do what is necessary.


If you want to be an expert, get experience. You can sell experience to prove your expertise.  Invest in becoming an expert.  Learn the fundamentals of any subject matter, document what you discover, add value to the discovery, and then, publish it for others to read.  


Don't quit, and don't even think about it.

Jake Steinfeld, Power Living by Jake




No has to have all the answers to be successful.  There will always be unknowns in any path we pick.  The path we don’t take is always viewed in hindsight as the smooth.  To reach any destination, all we have to do is “pay attention to what God is calling us to do next.”[68]     


What you focus on becomes your reality.



What we behold, we become. If we want something different, something greater than what we have, we must think greater thoughts and perform greater and more difficult actions.[69] Our main business is not to see what lies dimly in the distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.[70]           


What each of us will become later in life largely depends on what we become now.[71]




At the precipice of action, we often hesitate in starting what might be a long and difficult journey.  We can think a myriad of reason not to begin.  If we hold ourselves back, it is a sure sign that the goal or destination is not worth the price you are willing to pay for it.  Rather than expend the resources to get something you don’t have, you are choosing to accept the status quo, or current conditions, just to avoid the journey.


Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

Jules Renard


When we delay doing what we believe needs to be done, due to a lack of motivation, we develop excuses to explain our delay.  “Delay is the deadliest form of denial.”[72]  We deny those truths (the destination is too long or the rewards are not worth the trip) we don’t want to face.      If our goal it eliminate an undesirable condition, then what we don’t do today will still be waiting for us tomorrow.   There is no magic in life.  Either we carry our burdens today or tomorrow we carry more. The burden of today’s omissions on tomorrow is a heavy load to carry.  Don't get into a position where tomorrows load is too much of a burden.  Lighten your load my doing what work needs to be done today.             


Sometimes people wait to do what needs to be done in hopes that the need to do it will go away.  “One of the lessons of history is that nothing is often a good thing to do and always a clever thing to say, but it doesn't get us anywhere.”[73]


Chapter 6 – Step IV – Gaining Leverage


An action orientation and just plain hard work will get you to the end of a long journey, but wouldn’t be wonderful if you could get to your destination faster and easier?  Leverage implies getting a job done with less cost in time and energy.  Leverage is akin to having the right tools for the work.  You gain leverage by sharpening the saw before you begin cutting.  Anything that makes work go faster and easier can be considered a source of leverage.  The following concepts are potential sources of leverage.




A good way to start on your quest for any goal is to get close to its sources, the people, location, and resources…anything that has attributes of the goal you seek.  “Proximity means placing yourself in relationship to the persons and things you want to attract.”[74]        Success in the business world depends on building relationships and building relationships is based on three things: follow up, follow up, and follow up.[75]    


Best Practices


There are a few right ways to do something and many wrong ways.  The right ways makes work easy and fun.  The opposite is true of the wrong ways.   Doing a job the wrong way creates more problems than it creates.   Before you begin any job, make sure you know the best process for getting it done.  If you don’t have the means to use them, then hire someone who does. 




For every destination (end), there is an ideal journey (means) that will get us there.  If we pick the right means to get a desired end or goal, it increases our chances of getting there without raising too many problems.  We almost always get to our destination by a path that is less than ideal because of detours and roadblocks that could not be seen along the way.  A plan will get you started in the right direction toward your goal but not always in the way you first imaged.  If you stay firmly fixed on your goal, and adapt your plan along the way to the best means available to you at the time, most people can figure out how to complete their journey.   Stay flexible as many roads lead to the same destination.  Be resolute on the end but flexible on the means.  If you don’t have the right means at your disposal, find an expert who does.  An expert offers short cuts to success. [76]  Experts have developed know-how based on hard-earned experience and have developed rules and heuristics on how to handle just about every contingency that might develop.   Better to travel with experts than as a tinderhorn by yourself.         


Perfection of means and confusion of ends seem to characterize our age.

Albert Einstein 



Knowledge is often the most important criterion for success.   Often, when a project is started, the requisite know-how is low because of lack of experience.  If only one could begin a project knowing all they will know at the end of the project.   There is a way to do that level of experience…hire someone who has already been there and done that.   Not only will they likely know the right way to do something, they also will know what not to do to avoid problems. 




Momentum is like a snowball rolling down hill…it tends to get bigger as it rolls over fresh show.  Most people are about as successful as they make up their mind to be. Belief in your abilities comes past success and mental preparation for this one. The common denominator of successful people is that they seem to know where they are going.  Once you get yourself in motion, keep moving and allow momentum to work for you. Losers wait for something to happen; winners make things happen.[77]  “For big ideas, start small and let it expand by its own momentum.”[78]


Confidence and Acting As If


A lack of confidence will hold you back from making bold moves such as jumping into a project as if you could handle it no matter how difficult.  If you want to gain the power of confidence, act as if you already have it.[79]  If you need motivation, be willing to act as if you already have it.   “The willingness to do creates the ability to do.”[80]“When you act as if failure were impossible, it usually is.”[81]  




Luck helps but you can’t always count on getting it, or can you?  By doing smart things, you tend to attract luck.  Being at the right place at the right time is the cause of much success.   You can summon good luck by finding ways to get to the right place at the right time, as often as you can.   Good fortune can be managed just by choosing to do the right things at the right time and to search for ways and means of doing thing right with the right tools and processes.    


“Wanting something intensely is the motivating power that produces good luck. All luck starts with an idea that kindles a compelling reason to take action.[82] The harder you work, the luckier you get.


The harder I practice, the luckier I get. 

Gary Player 


The Law of Cause and Effect


For every effect in your life, there is a specific cause.  Everything happens for a reason, even if we don’t know or understand the reason.   There are specific causes of success and there are specific causes of failure.  If you learn the causes of each, you can control them.


The Law of Control


You gain more success and avoid more failures if you can control the sources of each.


The Law of Belief


Whatever you believe with feeling becomes your reality.  Belief is capable of creating the equivalent of facts.


The Law of Expectations


Whatever you expect with confidence becomes your self-fulfilling prophecy.  For example, you can never rise any higher than your expectation of yourself.   So, you had best expect the best from yourself.


Law of Attraction


You are a living magnet that attracts to yourself a nearly perfect reflection of your dominant thoughts and expectations.   People who use the law of attraction in a positive way are often called lucky.


Law of Correspondence


Your outer world is a nearly perfect reflection of your inner world.   Anyone can tell what is going on inside of you just by observing what is going on outside of you.


You must be something to be able to so something.



Law of Mental Equivalency


Thoughts objectify themselves.  Your own thinking has created almost everything that you have in your life for better or worse.

Chapter 7 – Step V – Overcoming Difficulties


Most journeys eventually run into problems before arriving at the intended destination, which will require a retrenchment and workaround to overcome. The more difficult the journey, the greater the number and magnitude of problems you are likely to encounter that will need to be overcome.  Many potential problems can be anticipated in advance, which gives you the opportunity to anticipate and try to avoid them in advance.  Most problems can be avoided if you make an effort to plan around them.  However, not all the problems you are likely to face will be known when you start.  The only to find them is to start and keep alert as you journey.  When you hit an obstacle, you must adapt in real time.




In every quest, you need to work at your highest and best performance level.  The better our performance, the better our results and the fewer problems are left over when we are done.


The more we demand of ourself, the more we deliver. Generally, the higher the performance demanded, the higher the performance achieved.  “Set up performance standards and invite and encourage those responsible for achieving them to beat the norm.[83]  “Doing your best in each moment puts you in the best place to do your best in the next moment.”[84]  “People need to place metrics around their priorities.[85]


Athletes know that their performance on the field depends

 on their performance off the field.

Dr. Frank Minirth, You Can


Practice makes permanent.

Author Unknown 



When we get too comfortable within our own comfort zone, we become lazy, thinking we already know or have everything we need to achieve success.  We lose our motivation to better our selves. Complacency thrives hidden behind rationalizations like “I’ve done this before, no big deal” or "why bother, doing anything different if the old methods work". The cost of complacency is to remain an average performer, with average results that are well below our true potential.  Complacent people slide into habits of mediocrity and excuse making.  As a result, we keep doing the same things in the same way time after time.  Life gets boring, and we're not sure why. The first symptom of complacency is satisfaction with things as they are, which results in a lack of goal setting, and the second, complacency rejections the prospect of things as they could be.[86]


The complacency of fools destroys them.

Proverbs 1:32 

Fear of Failure[87]


The fear of failure is the greatest single obstacle to success in adult life.  It is what keeps people in their comfort zones.   It is seldom possible to succeed without suffering failure along the way.  Success is a numbers game.  You must risk failure to gain success.  The more often you set goals are try to achieve them, the more often you will both fail and succeed.


View failure as a means of learning what you need to know so you can do it right the second time.  Approach every difficulty as it were sent to you at that moment and in that way to teach you something you need to learn so you can continue moving forward.


Nobody likes are work just for the sake of doing it.  Only if there are compelling reasons for hard work are we humans willing to do it.  Otherwise, the path of least resistance will be the path most often taken.   Great opportunities will simply look like hard work.


It is best to regard any setback or failure as temporary and causing a detour from the main road.  Once you realize that a detour just takes you off the main road until you can work your way back, you will not become discouraged and quit.   Every journey will have problems, which you are best viewed as detours.  Fortunately, it is the detours that make life interesting.  


Learning to view setbacks as a detour, and not as failure and defeat, is important to keeping a positive mental attitude.  People train for success, why not train for handling failure.  Failure is far more common than success.  Success is the last thing that happens in the quest to achieve a goal. In-between start to finish the journey will have many setbacks, failure, and defeat that must be worked through to get to the end.  Failure need not mean the end, just an intermediary step or detour that must be taken to get to success.  Failure is just part of the process.  Anyone can capitalize on their gains, but only a select few can capitalize on their failures/losses. Constantly be working to figure out how you can improve the odds and win.[88]


I would rather fail in a cause that later succeeds

than succeed in a cause that one day fails.

Woodrow Wilson


A righteous man falls seven times and rises eight times.

Proverbs 24:16 


Overcoming Problems


Every problem has a solution.  Solutions are found by finding the problems first, and then, matching future actions to link back to the original destination.  The journey may have a new curve in it after running into a problem, but it is still possible continue the journey.


Everyone runs into problems in the journey of life.   Problems are a fact of live.  If you want to become successful, you must learn to handle problems.  “Whenever God wants to send you a blessing or gift, He wraps it up in a problem.”[89]


Chapter 8 – Step VI – Completing


Every journey comes to an end when you finally reach the finish line.    All you must do is persist and endure until the end.   But not every project needs to be finished nor must every journey reach the envisioned destination.  Some projects are doomed to failure, found not to be worth further effort, or a better goal discovered.   A journey should only continue so long as it is deemed more worthy than any other destination available at the moment.    When a new and better destination is found, abandon the old and begin the new.




Finishing is satisfying but not always wise.  To continue a quest, just because you are in the midst of the journey, is foolishness when better options crop up.  Just be wary that you are not flittering from one seeming attractive goal to another and never finishing what you start.  A good ending is just as important as a good beginning. If you never finish, you never reap the full rewards of success.  There may be good reasons for not completing what you start, but the reasons should only be the discovery of something better.  You may find that 1) the goal is not worth the continued effort, 2) you got want you really wanted already, or 3) another goal may be more suitable to your needs. If you repeatedly find yourself starting but never finishing, then you have a butterfly mentality and are easily distracted from what is important.


It matters if you finish what you start.

C. W. Sooter




If you can endure the journey, you will end up somewhere.   The point of a success handbook is to take control and steer you way to destinations you have consciously chosen.  “Success is not something you achieve; it is something you pursue.   The only thing holding you back from any goal is you.  Creating a successful life is an inside job.  Improve your ability to goal seek from the inside out.             Success is a decision you make when you pick a goal to go after.            Success comes from following a successful process.  To endure when the going get tough require that you break down any negative beliefs and substitute them with new, positive thinking about yourself. Successful people take responsibility for their success. A truly successful person is someone who is always spinning one accomplishment into an even greater achievement.  Failure is considered temporary and never fatal.  Successful people view failure as a necessary step in the process of success.[90]     


You can't get to success without accepting some challenges and failures along the way. A successful pursuit of a goal can happen in a myriad of different ways than one initially contemplated and often in ways that are totally unexpected.[91]


A goal is an outcome you want to achieve and towards which you are willing to direct effort…pay the price. If you want the results but aren't willing to expend the effort, then your proposed goal is nothing more than a fanciful wish. 


To be realistic, all goals should be specific (envisioned), measurable (quantifiable), achievable and realistic with the resources at hands.  Besides being specific, measurable, achievable, and realistic, goals must also timely, meaning it matters when they get done. [92]  All opportunities tend to fade with time.  The best time to begin a goal is right now.


Successful people accept their known weaknesses but choose not to be bothered by them.  They give themselves permission to fail, and they are willing to learn what they need to move forward, one step at a time.  So, you have no excuse not to begin right away on any important goal.   By allowing yourself to fail, you aren’t discouraged if you should fail on any of the steps along the way.  Outcomes have a way of teaching us what we need to know to succeed.  The secret of success is to make the extra effort, try another approach, and concentrate on the desired outcome.  The way we look at the problems and obstacles in our lives has a powerful effect on our happiness and our potential for success.  You may or may not get what you deserve in life, but you will nearly normally get what you expect.   So, start all goals with strong and bold actions and expect that you will ultimately get what you work for.  Success is a consequence of choice, effort, and commitment.   Achieving goals often require us to build new skills, understand new concepts, and find new ways of dealing with problems.  All of these are actions that might be necessary to ultimately achieve a goal.


Since you can’t do everything at once and tackle every goal you want out of life, you must phase your goals and spread them over your lifetime.  There is a time for everything and if the timing is ripe for many of your goals, then you must prioritize and pick those goals that offer the most rewards for the least investment of your limited resources.   To get the most out of life, always prioritize your goals and activities.[93]


The formula for success is knowing how to get along with people.

Denis Waitley, the Psychology of Success 



Not every goal started is worth of completion.  Questionable goals are best tested for their worthiness and appropriateness by starting them.  Only if the first steps confirm the worthiness of a goals and the absence of resistance should one continue.  Life is like a long buffet line with many different goals to be sampled.  If you pick one goal and the first taste is bitter, this is sufficient reason for moving on to other offering in the buffet line.   With the cornucopia of successes to be tasted in life, it makes no sense to continue if it doesn’t meet the taste test.  Not everything in life is meant to be experiences.   Often, a single sampling is sufficient to determine the goodness of fit between the rewards offered by the goal and the needs to the seeker.  A wise person knows when to quit.  The secret of victory is knowing when to cut your losses.[94] Perseverance is an admiral trait but not always appropriate.   If an improper goal has been started, the wise person acknowledges the fact and abandons it early, thus cutting their losses and saving more resources for other goals.


Persistence and Determination


Everyone is born with determination but only a few use it.

Dr. Frank Minirth, You Can


People don't wear out; they give up.

Louis L'Amour, Western Novelist


Anyone can be persistent if he or she believes in something.  Those who truly believe are the one who change the world.[95]    


Chapter 9 – Step VII – Lessons Learned


The only way to learn well the important lessons that only life can teach us is to take our experiences and examine their meaning for the future.  Hidden in every experience are lessons we can learn if we just take the time to find them.   Each journey provides its own lessons and some of them are worth remembering.  Don’t hesitate to write them down for posterity.  Only codified lessons are learned.


Not only can we learn how to do things better, we can learn the better things to do.  Apply everything you learn to guide you in the future.  Let no lesson be lost lest you.

Chapter 10 - Success Intelligence[96]


It is not so much intelligence that breeds success but an aspect of intelligence called success intelligence that promotes successful living.  It's not intelligence in general but successful intelligence in particular that counts in living a satisfying life. Successfully intelligent people can make mistakes and get into bad situations in business or relationships, but they have good judgments and the courage to know when and how to get out of them.              


Successful people know both their strengths and their weaknesses.  They capitalize on their strengths and compensate for or correct their weaknesses. Successfully intelligent people actively seek out role models for themselves, and later become role models for others. Successfully intelligent people question assumptions and encourage others to do the same.  All creative people begin by asking one question: "Why?"


Some of the characteristics of people who live a successful life and high levels of success intelligence are the following.  Successfully Intelligent people:
