Success 101

The most recent statistics show that the number of self help books published in 2019 was 85,253.  That number is close to more than three times the number that was published in 2014.

Alot has been written and there are many different well thought out ideas and plans that can help you be successful.

While many of the books are useful and thought provoking I believe we tend to overthink what it really takes to be successful at times.

In it’s simplest form I believe to be successful you can follow this simple three step formula and success will eventually find you.

1.  Show up.  Just show up and be early.  Be where you need to be, are supposed to be and when you are supposed to be there.

2. Work hard.  Every day.  Do what you are supposed to do and do it with excellence. How you do your work matters.

3.  Repeat the above two steps over and over again.  When you feel like you’re getting stuck make sure to go back to #1 and #2.

That’s not a book’s worth of knowledge but I believe it can get you closer to being where you want to be if you do it consistently.

I’m cheering for you.
