In my book, The Success Principles, I teach 64 lessons that help people achieve what they want out
of life. From taking nothing less than 100 percent responsibility for your life to empowering others,
these are the fundamentals to success—and to great leadership. When people ask me for the single most important principle, I share a simple formula. For years I’ve been teaching top leaders and thinkers in our world this formula that helps guide their decision-making and pathway to success. I don’t know any successful leader who doesn’t keep this on the mind daily:
E + R = O
(Events + Responses = Outcome)
The basic idea is that every outcome you experience in life (whether it’s success or failure, wealth or poverty, wellness or illness, intimacy or estrangement, joy or frustration) is the result of how you have responded to an earlier event (or events) in your life. Great leaders don’t just know this instinctively, but they make it a habit to respond in ways that generate the outcomes they want, even during extremely tough experiences or events seemingly beyond their control.

Success Principle #35 says “99% is a bitch; 100% is a breeze.” When you make a 100% commitment to something, you eliminate exceptions. You no longer have to waste time or energy debating whether you are going to do something. It’s already been decided. If you commit to reading an hour every day, no matter what, you read an hour a day. You don’t debate whether you’ll keep that commitment. If you vow to not work past 6 p.m., you don’t make exceptions. You’re 100 percent committed, so it’s not even a question that you’ll be out the door at … Continue reading Success Principle #35 from Jack Canfield

Yesterday I watched a webinar presented by Kerwin Rae about the top 7 challenges on the road to wealth. Kerwin Rae is a businessman, coach, mentor, entrepreneur, author and international speaker. As one of the world’s leading business commentators and strategists for over a decade, he has coached thousands of consultants in numerous countries on business development, marketing, sales, human behaviour and entrepreneurial psychology.
As these principles are faced in one way or the other by most of achievers worldwide, I thought that it was a good idea to share them here.
Just before that a quote heard also yesterday during the webinar: “Mindsets play strange tricks on us. We see things the way our minds have instructed our eyes to see” Muhammad Yunus.
So the top 7 challenges on the road to wealth are:
1. Focus – really one of the biggest challenges is to focus on what is important, ignore shiny objects and the usual distractions;
2. Motivation – why you do what you do? what is your drive to do, achieve and grow;
3. Clarity – if your vision is not clear don’t expect that the outcomes to be like that. It can happen, but don’t be sure about this;
4. Plan – you know, failing to plan means planning to fail – no more comments here;
5. Strategy – you need to follow a proven strategy to win the game;
6. Tactics – you can have the best strategy in the world but the tactics are the movements which will make things happen – you can call this the leg work;
7. Feeling like giving up – this is a big challenge when you feel like giving up just that the only way is straight forward. Continue reading “The top 7 challenges on the road to wealth”
Benjamin Franklin este considerat “Primul American” si o personaliate deosebita studiata si citata de foarte multi dintre oamenii de succes pe care ii cunosc, cu care colaborez, pe care ii urmaresc sau citesc. Despre el, mai multe pe Wikipedia aici.
Am regasit aceste 13 principii ale succesului intr-o carte despre vanzari – “Cum am devenit expert in vanzari” a lui Frank Bettger si m-am gandit ca este momentul sa scriu despre ele pe blog. Benjamin recomanda ca aceste principii sa fie aplicate unul pe saptamana ceva gen tema acestei saptamani este … timp de 13 saptamani si apoi sa o iei de la inceput. Sfatul meu este sa adaptezi aceste principii la scenariul tau de viata iar la sfarsitul articolului voi scrie despre cum le-a adaptat Frank in viata lui. Deci:
1. Cumpatarea – nu manca pana la ingreunare si nu bea pana la ametire;
2. Linistea – nu spune decat ceea ce ar putea folosi altora sau tie; evita conversatiile marunte;
3. Ordinea – lasa toate lucrurile pe care le ai la locul lor; acorda fiecarei parti a ocupatiei tale timpul ei;
4. Hotararea – fii hotarat sa faci ceea ce trebuie; indeplineste fara gres ceea ce ai hotarat;
