Do you think successful people are just plain lucky?
Successful people did not become successful because they were lucky.
They did not achieve success by accident. Being at the right place at the right time, meeting relevant people, reading the appropriate book, did not come about accidentally or by luck.
Luck is brought about by Labour Under Correct Knowledge.
Successful people prepared themselves. Instead of giving up on anything they started and wanted to achieve they got stronger by learning more.
Success is a methodical, orderly and deliberate process of deciding what you want to do with your life, what are the steps that you need to undertake to get you there, and lastly what you will do once you get there.
One of the most important aspects, if not the most important aspect to success, is the ability to visualize your successful outcome and stay focused on it until you achieve it.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge, knowledge is limited." — Albert Einstein
Successful people understood the potential power behind knowledge, yet they also understood that, for them to close the gap between where they are and where they wanted to be, they would have to piece together the enigma that is most often referred to as "life".
They had to build a picture, a vision, of success in their mind, and then go about taking action on creating that envisioned life.
In much the same way, you have to be serious about your present and future, you need to have the knowledge that is required so you, too, may close the gap: you need to be and remain determined to devote yourself to taking massive action to build your business of succeeding in life.
You, too, will need to see the end, your dream and destiny that you desire in your mind's eye. It is up to you to take the necessary and relevant action to make it all happen. It's just like going to the doctor with a particular health problem.
The doctor may prescribe a medication for you to take four times a day, yet he cannot be there with you to ensure that you are taking the medication.
It comes back to deciding to be responsible for your life.
Have you noticed how it all stems from that one attitude? Being responsible for your own life.
Your success, your being responsible 100% for you to live your dream life starts here.
When you accept 100% responsibility for yourself and your current life situation, you will have the power to move towards those things you truly desire in life: which is success in all areas of your life.

Here, you're not being told what you couldn't do; instead you are being told to shoot for the stars. And above all, you are being shown how to shoot for those stars.
"A person is what he thinks about all day long." — Emerson
Interesting thought, wouldn't you think? So much so, it's worth repeating: "A person is what he thinks about all day long."
Success and happiness cannot happen if you possess the same old thoughts and beliefs.
If you do not change your mind, if you do not get rid of the unsupportive thoughts and beliefs, you will inevitably remain stuck in your old ways. Not much, if anything, will change.
Let's give you a quick overview on how change comes about:
Your BEHAVIOUR, how you act (or perhaps do not act), controls your success or failure. Your ability to attain high levels of success is dependent upon your actions and behaviours. Your results are the outcome of your behaviour. Now let's consider where your behaviours come from and what controls them?
Your FEELINGS command your behaviour. Every action that you take is first filtered through your feelings that reside in your subconscious mind. How you feel about something determines what you do and how well you do it. So where do your feelings come from?
Your ATTITUDES create and influence your feelings. Your attitude is your perspective from which you view life. Whatever attitude you have about anything will affect how you feel, which, in turn, affects how you act. Where do your attitudes come from?
Your BELIEFS create, control and influence your attitudes. What you believe about anything will determine your attitude about it, which will create your feelings, and then which will direct your behaviour and action. Belief patterns are so powerful that two people who are in the same situation could perceive things completely differently. It only requires us to believe what we see and how we see it. We all have thousands of beliefs—big and small. And where do your beliefs come from?
Your THOUGHTS create, control and influence your beliefs. Your thoughts are real and are immensely powerful. Everything you accept from the outside world and everything you feed yourself from within is a product of your thoughts. Everything starts as a thought.
So, it goes without saying you need to learn to control your thoughts. And when you do, you will automatically control your beliefs, your attitudes, your feelings and, consequently, your behaviour and actions.
The big secret to success:
Learn to control your thoughts and you will influence your behaviours and actions. It's all a mind-set. That's what we've been saying all along.
Success is predictable and is not achieved by accident.
Have the mind-set of the successful people and you will achieve success. Believe and it is yours!
"There is a great future in front of you, you can leave your past behind." — Joel Osteen
Science of success experts have concluded that the brain is a goal-setting organism.
That is fantastic news for us: for whatever goal we give to our subconscious mind, it will work for us day and night, 24/7, to achieve it for us; to make it a reality.
The principal breakthrough that scientists made was that we do not need to waste our precious time and effort trying to change old thoughts and behaviours: we just simply create new ones.
And the other discovery they made was that we can continue to create new thoughts, new memories, new behaviours, new skills, and learn new things for as long as we are alive on this earth.
Now, with the new discoveries in recent years, it has been scientifically proven that our capacity to achieve and succeed literally has no limits.
Our brain has the capacity to continually learn during our entire lifetime.
Our brain can form new thoughts, can have new memories, and can learn new things by the millions, no matter what your age is. By the millions.
That's how many new things we can learn, that's how many new skills we can learn, that's how many new thoughts we can have, that's how many new behaviours we can adopt.
This is encouraging because there is no limit on your capacity to achieve new things.
No limits whatsoever for the human brain to learn, memorise, develop, achieve and perform at higher levels than ever imagined. It makes no difference what your age is: you are capable of learning anything new that you want to learn.
That adds to what we spoke of earlier: no more excuses.
"The future belongs to those who prepare for it today." — Malcolm X
Your brain has the capacity to achieve way beyond what was ever thought possible. So now is the time to break out of your limited thinking and start dreaming big and imagining unlimited possibilities.
Becoming successful is not impossible.
It is a choice you make through a decision. Every day, step-by-step, you may climb the mountain of success if you've decided to do so, if you're committed to accomplish what the others think impossible.
Design your future now.
Prepare to receive what you desire.
Thanks to the phenomenal advances made in cognitive science and the development of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), personal change, personal transformation, has come a very long way.

Bear in mind, much like everything else in life, success requires practice and massive, consistent action.
