Success… an excerpt from the soon to be released book:
Motivation for the World, One Word at a Time by Gary A. McAbee
We will arrive at the finish of our journey together by defining the word success. Did you notice the definition of success is really about an outcome or result? Somehow we have added more to this definition, so the word success takes on many different meanings. Success is usually connected to something that is good. I think we can agree that the most common use of the word success is to associate it with a positive outcome. However, by definition success can be a positive or negative outcome.
For example, the police can be successful at catching thief, while another thief can be successful at getting away. This shows that success happens all the time and it is inevitable regardless of the situation. We always get an outcome or result, so we are always successful! No matter what you do, success is guaranteed. No matter what you try, success is guaranteed. No matter where you go, success is guaranteed. Understand exactly what this means: success can be defined as a positive or negative outcome or result.
To become a success, start by defining it for yourself. Claim victory in the beginning of the process. Build enough faith to believe you are destined to be a success. Write what would happen if and when you pursue success. Dream big and let those thoughts plant the seeds of your future success. Develop a vision that supports your idea of what success looks like to you. Turn these things into a burning passion for becoming a success. Seek various sources of motivation to help you start toward success. Compose a plan that will allow you to complete goals on your way to success.
Keep defining success for yourself. Study and build your knowledge base to lead yourself to success. Improve your character so it will help you find the success you deserve. Learn how to work harder and smarter so success will come to you. Create your own luck and you will increase your likelihood of experiencing greater success. Take calculated risks to uncover opportunities that will lead to success. Embrace failure of a part of the process of achieving success. Find your hidden resource of perseverance in the midst of searching for success. Continue to rely on your integrity as you get closer to success. Refine your focus as you see success first-hand and experience it more often. Enjoy success as you live the life you have always wanted to live.
Affirmation: I finally understand the steps that I must take as I make steady progress toward my ultimate goal: success!!!
