Student: Are there rules that guarantee success?
Teacher: Yes, there are.
- Rule # 1 Choose a profession that you enjoy, no matter what happens.
- Rule # 2 Create specific visual outcomes that you want to achieve so you know you’re being successful as you take your journey through life.
- Rule # 3 Know the feeling you want to feel so you know you’re successful.
Student: Those rules seem too simple.
Teacher: Success would be a commonplace achievement if more people simply followed those three rules. * Succeeding is supposed to be simple. ** The job you go to every day is supposed to be enjoyable. *** Creating a clear vision of outcomes you want is supposed to be natural to do. **** Knowing what you’re going to feel like when you say – Yea, I did it – is supposed to be obvious to you.
Student: I think I complicate matters when I set goals to succeed.
Teacher: Most people make success a complicated mess because they don’t keep it simple. You don’t become a screaming success by screaming about wanting to be successful; you just quietly follow those three simple rules.
