Successful people are who successful people are, because successful people do what successful people do. Success is not defined by who they are or who you are, but ultimately by what you do.
I want to talk to you about successful people.
My message is really, really simple. Successful people are who successful people are, because successful people do what successful people do. Success is not defined by who they are or who you are, but ultimately by what you do.
Of course what you do does create who you are as an individual but when we separate people’s success from who they are as opposed to what they do, it makes it unattainable for ourselves. For example when I worked with kids, the kids that were getting 60% looked at the kids who are getting 80 or 90% and they would think that that child was getting 80 or 90% because that kid is just clever and smart. Guess what? In this world there are people who find things easier than other people!
I tend to say if there’s somebody out there who is naturally brilliant at what you want to do, take them out of the equation. There’s say one person out of a thousand that is naturally great. Take that person out of the equation and the other 999 who are successful in that area will have a formula in order to be successful. They will do what they need to do to be successful. They might not even know what they are doing to be successful – but they are doing it. Our job is really simple, we need to know what successful people are doing to create their success so we can do the same and we can create our own version of that success.
You might not have the same business as Richard Branson you might not have the same body as Dwayne Johnson but you have your version of it. We have to stop associating success with the person and start associating the success with the actions of the person. Of course their actions are going to be derived from their mindset and attitude and we can develop the same mindset, the same attitude. We can take the same action and then we can expect to have our version of that success.
So, successful people are who successful people are, because they do what successful people do. Richard Branson gets to live the life of Richard Branson, because Richard Branson does what Richard Branson does and what he does is what successful people do. We can have what they have, our version of it, if we just do what we need to do in order to be successful in whatever area of life you want to be particularly successful at. Bear this in mind, it is not who people are that make them successful. Who they are is based on what they do and what they do is ultimately creating that success.
Until next time be successful
