I remember when I listened to my first success program; it was called “The Seeds of Greatness” by Denis Waitley. At age 10, I did not understand that much but I enjoyed every word of the program. I was, however, waiting for him to tell me exactly how to become successful. Was there a certain widget I needed to create or sell? Who would I sell it to? How exactly was I going to make my million dollars? I anxiously waited to hear these answers.
By the end of the program, I realized that none of my questions would be answered. I became a bit discouraged and turned to the classified section in magazines such as Success and Entrepreneur. “Ahhh! I found it!” Here, hidden in the back of these well-known periodicals were hundreds of people with the answers I was looking for and willing to give me exact details on how to make a million dollars for only a few hundred dollars! What a bargain! Well, after many years and several thousand dollars I finally understood how success really works and learned several valuable lessons.
Since age 10, I have purchased hundreds of books and tapes on all aspects of success, as well as attended seminars by some of my favorite speakers. These have been the driving force that helped me find the exact way to achieve success. The key word is “find.” It was up to me to use the information I had gathered to define my own goals and pursue them with passion. Success is very personal to each individual. Anyone who wants to sell you overnight success or wealth is not interested in your success; they are interested in your money.
