Motivation For Success From Steve Jobs That Can Change Your Life

We can all learn a lesson about success from the late Steve Jobs. The things he did with Apple and Pixar revolutionized the world as we know it and without these wonderful creations, things would certainly not be the same.

These were massive successes that required a lot of hard work and a hulk like mentality, and overcoming other adversities that almost no other person would be willing to face. This is the exact point I wanted to make here today.

The old saying may be cliche and like a fairy tale myth to most people-“Whatever you can believe you can achieve.” Steve Jobs is a shining example of this.

Most people are so comfortable with what they have and uninspired to reach unfound levels of success in their lives that even the thought of a little hard work hurts their head or ego. Then then go on to complain about the things they don’t have and never will because they’re too unlikely to strike it rich.

This kind of mentality will kill your dreams and goals from the start, leaving you to fester in your own sea of negativity and limiting beliefs.

The commencement speech in the video below is information that every student should have a chance to hear. These are life-changing words that if more people heard then maybe our economy wouldn’t be as devastating as it is today. More people would be more inspired to recognize their dreams and turn them into a reality.

Most Things, If Not Everything, Happens for a Reason

Some of you may think this will sound like a bunch of hocus pocus or witchery but one of the most important things I have learned in my life is that everything happens for a reason.

Whether you believe in God, law of attraction, etc, have you considered that one or all of these could be responsible for the events that transpire in your life? Some people believe God has a plan for them while others believe that you attract what you put out into the Universe. I believe in both.

I used to be a very negative person with a pessimistic outlook on life. I complained often and had taken on the role of a victim. I wondered why everything bad happened to me and what I had done to deserve bad things happening to me.

I had no idea I was like this at the time and didn’t realize it until years later after I had severely worked on my personal growth and development. I read many books and listened to positive audios on a daily basis. I began to learn every day, which resulted in more positive thoughts, and my brain functioning at a higher frequency. I began to see the good in every situation which gave me peace of mind and allowed me to enter a new plane of spirituality.  Continue reading “Most Things, If Not Everything, Happens for a Reason”

The Biggest Success Blunder You Can Make

Success means different things to different people, but that’s not to say that the process differs in a whole lot of ways. In other words, there are many paths to “achieving success” but there are some things that stay the same, which is exactly what I want to talk about in this article today.

More importantly though, I want to talk about the biggest success blunder than you can make. Why?

Because this is the one thing that determine whether or not a person will experience success.

The No. 1 Success Mistake One Can Make

Is….. drumroll please: Having a fixed, negative mindset; also known as your belief system.

If one has limiting beliefs about themselves or the world around them, it’s going to be a pretty sticky challenge to achieve any kind of substantial success. It’s hard to have faith in something if you don’t fully believe that it’s possible, which is where the majority of success seekers fall short – well, it’s one of the biggest reasons at least.

People with fixed mindsets have a hard time accepting the things that will need to be changed or sacrificed in order to reach their desired level of success. They also tend to accept the new things they need to learn and the challenges that need to be faced along the way.

On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace the path that most success requires, which is why these types are much more likely to accomplish their goals.

Hopefully this difference is painfully clear. I know it was for more, but more on that later.

3 Timeless Secrets to Success

When most people hear the word ‘success’ they usually think of money and status, myself once included.

Sure these things sound great, but they don’t just come out of nowhere. As cheesy as it sounds, success on any subject takes a ton of hard word and dedication, on top of consistency, persistence and patience which is where most make the decision to give up. Success is hard, but that can be a good thing. If it weren’t then everyone would be successful and things would be even harder than they can be now.

I have been studying success for five years now and in all of the courses and products I’ve bought, books read, and seminars traveled to, my collection has grown to the hefty size that it is today; but that has also come with five years of experiences, mistakes and failures along the way.

To kick off Recent Rambles to a giant start, I thought it would be beneficial to share the biggest three secrets that have stayed consistent throughout all of my endeavors.

Important Success Secrets

#1. Skills Pay the Bills

Money is typically traded for something else of equal or proportionate value, am I right? Well the same thing applies when you are trying to start your own business or be successful within the company you are working out currently.

Skills are weapons in this economy and the better you hone yours, the better you will be paid and the more in demand you will be.

#2. Patience Pays

It it’s worth it, it takes time. Again, if success didn’t take hard work than everyone would consider themselves that way.  Continue reading “3 Timeless Secrets to Success”
