Simon says, “Your success is just an attitude away.”
As with most of life’s important adventures, the door to your success
potential unlocks with attitude, attitude, attitude; and you hold the key.
Unlocking your unlimited potential rests on your fully committing to your
success. For you, anything less than success is unacceptable. Coming close, a
good try, nearly succeeding, and other versions of not quite making the grade
just do not do. Others may be satisfied with having played a good game; but
your vision for yourself does not include second place.
How do you develop the success attitude? You start by understanding if
you do not expect to succeed, you are likely right. Successful people make it
look easy but appearances can be very misleading. Your success is the most
challenging work you ever have the opportunity to do. If you do not believe you
are up to the challenge, it is all too easy to fail. What’s more, you quickly
see failing is far easier than succeeding. To succeed, you not only believe you
have what it takes to succeed, you believe you are up to the challenge. For
you, success is not merely a possibility, it is inevitable.
Your journey to success does not come with a guarantee. There
certainly are pitfalls and hazards along the way. You know the potential to
succeed is permanently bound to the possibility of failure. Despite the risk,
you are committed to your success, keep your focus on the rewards of
succeeding, know anything else is a precursor to personal disaster.
No, Simon is definitely not suggesting you ignore the risks or
discount the danger. What’s more, your personal success coach certainly knows
it is safer for you to do only what you are supposed to do, follow the rules,
and trust the world will reward you. Others depend on you to do what they want
done; and you are dependent on them for everything. If this fits your vision
for yourself, it may turn out just fine, assuming you hitched your horse to the
right wagon. If instead, you do not see yourself spending your life pulling
someone else’s wagon, it is time for a new vision for your future, one putting
who you are and who you will become on the same success path.
Do you see yourself on the success path? If so, you have the attitude
it takes to succeed. You imagine yourself succeeding; you know you will
succeed. It is the only alternative worthy of your valuable time and personal
