“Success is not
a destination, it’s a journey”
How do you define success, and what methods do you follow to achieve it? In today’s article I explore the mysterious nature of success, and provide a few excellent tools for having it manifest in your life more readily.
Secret to Success Podcast
First, please listen to an amazing podcast interview I did with Steve Little. Steve is one of the most successful people I have ever encountered and you will be inspired to hear his philosophy:
Because he has enjoyed a very lucrative career in the software business over the last 20 years, Steve shares with us some of his secrets for attaining financial success.
He is also a champion athlete and bodybuilder and has created a health, wellness, and fitness business that services everyone from overweight executives to competitive athletes.
If this wasn’t enough, Steve is also an accomplished artist, musician, author and family man! Don’t you ever wonder how someone like Steve is able to accomplish so much?
I know I do, and if you have not caught an episode of “Conversations to Change the World”, this is a great one to hear.
Success is a Present-Moment Thing
Success is an ever-evolving phenomenon in our lives that each person judges differently. One individual’s version of achievement is not necessarily another’s.
We must also be aware that the experience of success shifts periodically within our own lives. What makes you feel accomplished at this present moment may mean nothing 10 years from now.
It is easier to understand this by analyzing what your greatest ambitions were in the past. More often than not, how you defined success during your college years is a whole lot different than how you define it mid-career.
This realization is actually very freeing, and ignites awareness that the only thing that
really matters is your present moment concept. ‘Success’ is just a word, a fleeting perception that has no universal meaning.
So when gauging your success in life, there is no need to look behind or ahead. Instead, look right here, right now and bring your attention to your current situation.
Success Magazine Re-launch
With all this said about success…it is still necessary to go for it! Once you become present to the things that make you feel fulfilled, action is required to make them a reality in your life. To use another fantastic quote:
“The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.”
I decided to write this article to coincide with the recent re-launch of Success Magazine! Success is a fantastic platform that solely focuses its content on all aspects of achievement.
I highly recommend you checking it out, and they have chosen their ultimate list of the 25 must-read books for achievers. I have read most of these…all great stuff!
Woody Allen is quoted as saying “seventy percent of success in life is showing up”, and I whole-heartedly agree with the sentiment. You have to be in the ballgame in order to get a hit!
So get yourself into the game and listen to the Steve Little Podcast and check out Success Magazine! I look forward to hearing your comments.
Lastly, please visit Steve’s wonderful coaching website at Champion’s Success.
