3 That Guarantee Success

October 14, 2018

Notice the trajectory of the line in the photo I've chosen today to represent your success. The success you will experience as long as you keep three things at the top of your mind, on the tip of your tongue, and within reach of your hand.

 

First, complaining about something is only as good as the action you've devised to solve the problem! Criticism is only as effective at motivating change in someone else as your desire to recognize the competence and skill of the person who has crossed you. Nobody is perfect. No circumstances are ideal. However, your attitude and thoughtful grace under pressure will smooth out the bumps and pimples. By adopting this principle, you will likely save someone else's life, reputation, and bless yourself in the process. If you insist on ignoring it, you will probably leave a sad path of destruction in your way.

 

Second, be happy.

First.

We must lay to rest the myth that happiness is the prize at the end of a struggle rather than a prerequisite to struggling successfully.  Kill that idea and bury it today. And don't make it a solemn occasion. Throw an "End of the Rainbow Lie Party!" Invite a few friends! Have everyone bring their favorite IPA and don't refuse gifts! Celebrate the death of a myth whose engine is fear. Happiness, my friends, is your choice. Today. Not because everything is going great. Nope. Everything may be terrible, but choosing to have an optimistic attitude, engaging your curiosity, and taking action will head you in the right direction! Happiness is your new engine! Choose happiness now. Now. Now. And now. Even now.

 

Third, believe that you will be successful. Never, ever belittle the power of belief.  If you struggle with negative thoughts, doubt, and fear, write it all down in the left-hand column on a beautiful white piece of paper.  In the righthand column, counter each negative thought or anxiety with a successful one! That's right. Replace, "I can't save enough money" with "Here's how I can save more!" Replace, "I'm fat" with "I'll lose five pounds in the next ten days, and keep it up until I've reached my goal. Here's how I'll do it!" Replace, "I don't have any friends" with "I'll be a friend." And don't be hard on yourself! Everyone struggles with negative thoughts, doubt, and fear. That's why "Believe!" is a command. I exhort you, "Believe!"
