Let’s talk about success. I’m sure you know by now that successful people do – what unsuccessful people won’t do. That’s just a fact of life!

George Washington Carver said: “When you do the common things in life, in an uncommon way, you’ll command the attention of the world.” Pat Riley, one of the few coaches who’s won NBA titles as a player, and a coach put it another way. Riley said: “Do the ordinary things, extraordinarily well.”

Something I’ve learned is: Success will not lower its standards to us, we must raise our standards to success.

I’m sure you’re well aware of who Napoleon Hill is, the author of the highly influential book: Think and Grow Rich. Napoleon Hill spent his life studying, and observing the determinants of success. And in an interesting survey Hill conducted – he talked with people who had earned over 1 million dollars a year for three consecutive years. Napoleon Hill found these people all had five things in common:

You’ve heard it before: “Set your goals first.” “You can’t hit a target that you can’t see.” “Start with the end in mind,” etc.

So why haven’t you done it? Why are you stuck? Why do you read these blogs and still get no results? “Sure I have goals,” you say. “So what about it? I try.”

No preaching from me is going to make it happen. No self-improvement course is going to help. No inspiring quotes is going to work their magic ­ IF YOU DON’T ACT.

If you’re trying to achieve your goals without a plan, without a system, without support, you’re wasting time and getting stuck. Maybe this blog will be the one to push you over the edge. Maybe you’ll reach a point of no return after this blog. Maybe a breakthrough will occur. The choice is yours.

Below are 10 tips that I have found useful in helping me see my goals come to pass. I hope you will encourage and inspire you to take action. Because it’s a horrible thing to live a life where you die in the middle instead of the end.

Success does not happen overnight and even the most random success stories are usually the byproduct of hard work, determination and just a little bit of luck. Being in the right place at the right time is more than just mere happenstance, however, it is an actual skill that can be cultivated over the course of time.

To be in the right place at the right time, you’ll need to build your professional network. The cold, hard reality of the modern job market is that it is less about what you know and more about who you know. With so many skilled employees seeking jobs at any given moment, the network you have built is what will sustain you over the long haul.

In many instances, a person who makes the hiring decisions for a certain position does not care about what your grade point average was in college or what your extracurricular activities. They do not care about what you like to do in your spare time (within reason) and they do not care about your greatest fears or weaknesses.

They are looking for someone that they do not mind spending their days with. At most jobs, the people you work with become a makeshift family of sorts and we often end up spending more of our time with our coworkers than we do our own loved ones.

“The ability to recognize and learn from one’s mistakes is the first step to becoming a great leader. BUT the ability to learn from others’ mistakes is not only critical to successful leadership – it is GENIUS.”

Recently, a friend of mine and I were sitting at an upscale restaurant in Houston, Texas talking about old times. We haven’t seen one another in nearly half a decade. Anyhow, our conversation turned to the failure’s and mistakes we’ve made over the years. We ended up talking at length about all the areas in life where we had went wrong. And believe me – we had one story after the next about our failure’s which included: failed marriages, failed businesses, failed you name it. We were text book failure’s in the sense. But do you know what? We were also probably some of the most SUCCESSFUL individuals in the restaurant! That’s right. Sure…we’ve made our fair share of mistakes. But, WE’VE LEARNED FROM THEM!

My friend and I will continue to make mistakes. I assure you we’ll continue to have failure’s in our lives. But I also assure you that ALL of our mistakes going forward will be ORIGINAL MISTAKES. Why? Because we’ve learned our lessons from the school of hard knocks taught at the University of Life. We’ve taken our licks, dusted ourselves off and got back up and tried again.

Typically, I try to keep my blog posts short. But today I have a personal story to tell you.

Have you ever had “one of those days?” A day when everything that can go wrong does? I believe Murphy named a law after this. Monday was that day for me.

On a scale from 1 to 10, my frustration level was at a 13. So much so, this song perfectly describes my Monday: So You Had A Bad Day.

Actually, it began Sunday night. I was kept up most of the all night by a whimpering puppy. The poor thing had been neutered two days prior. And between being emasculated and having to sleep with a plastic cone wrapped around his neck – my baby boy cried and cried long into the nights and early into the mornings.
