The secret is out… There isn’t one.
While I’m not referring (directly) to ‘The Secret” (there is no way I’m putting a hyperlink there, thank you very much!), the additional layer of reference still fits.
Any resource that will tell you otherwise, stay away – it will lead you from the path. It’s quite simple in my opinion – it is just not hard to work hard. We are all born with different talents – some things come natural to some, and many of us need to work on the others to stay on top of them. But that’s what the secret to success is all about – actually working at it.
I want to be clear – just working hard is not a “complete” answer… it’s about working effectively. And there are many resources (books, websites, technology – you likely have these already to some degree) that can help a person do just that.
But it is the drive to work at things, the internal sale I call it, that needs to take place before anything else. Success can be measured by any number of external ways, but internal success can be the hardest to measure and is probably the most important to recognize.
So how do you measure success on your own terms?
