The Secret Ingredient To Success
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to go through life and nothing fazes them? They tend to have good things happen to them all the time and the bad things, well they always seem to turn into something good. The opposite is also true. Have you ever known someone, that always has bad things happening to them, and misfortune seems to follow them whatever they go?
We have been given the choice to choose our own destiny and that our thoughts and emotions combined with our actions decide what our destiny is going to be.I guess the big question is why?
Is it luck, fate, kismet or some special cosmic force that determines if good or bad things happen to us?
I can tell as surely as my eyes are brown that answer is NO!!!!! I truly believe that we have been given the choice to choose our own destiny and that our thoughts and emotions combined with our actions decide what our destiny is going to be. So what thoughts, emotions and actions create success? To me it looks like a recipe.
The Recipe To Success
If you took what it takes to be successful and put it into a recipe it would look like this:
- 3 Heaping Tbsp Small Smart Choices
- 4 Cups Consistency (working your small smart choices everyday)
- 1 Tbsp Persistence
- Add self discipline as needed to keep it from getting runny.
Then heat it up real hot over a period of time to force it all to gel together, and you know what you would have, a hard to run business.
It’s like a hard biscuit edible, but it won’t be enjoyable. It’s also like a pie crust, you can make it without lard by using other things, but it is just not the same. For me lard makes the whole pie experience enjoyable, and the secret ingredient that makes success sweet and the process enjoyable is thankfulness.
Thankfulness is choosing to look at the good things in your life however small they may be. Only got 3 customers and 2 team members? Be grateful, you have already done better than most network marketers, and if you can get those you can get more. Is money tight right now, can’t buy all the things you want. Be thankful, most people on this planet couldn’t even have breakfast this morning. Could you?
I do understand how hard it can be to build a business. My road to success has not always been paved with roses. I have Only got 3 customers and 2 team members? Be grateful, you have already done better than most network marketers, and if you can get those you can get more. had speed bumps, construction and outright detours that have taken me a while to get back on track, but the one thing I have learned is that thankfulness gets me back on the road and moving faster than anything else.
So why is thankfulness so powerful?
I believe it has to do with spiritual principle that we get what we focus on. You see when you choose to focus on what is good, true, noble, trustworthy, praise worthy, those things tend to come to you more. When you are thankful even when you can’t see the answer to your problem that is a form of faith, and faith is always rewarded with an answer.
I choose to look at the good everyday, I focus on the small miracles like when I am in a rush and I get the first parking spot, or when someone calls out of the blue wanting to join my business or purchase my products. When I ask them how they got my number all they say is that they found my brochure somewhere.
Can I encourage you today to make thankfulness a lifestyle choice, and like every other new habit, it is going to take time and effort to do it consistently, you may even fall off the thankfulness wagon every now and then, but the important thing is not to wallow in guilt, but pick yourself up, dust yourself off and be thankful that you have the chance to try again.
As I end this I want to tell you how thankful I am for you. You are the reason that I do this, and I appreciate every time that you read my posts, articles and newsletters.
To Your Success,
