SUCCESS: The Wednesday Word of the Week #WednesdayWisdom
It means that success is not a one-and-done.
We also have Grant Cardone’s Success Pledge
“I pledge a commitment to My Success, My Family’s Success and to the Successful Survival of the company I represent.
Success is not an option for me but something I insist!
Success is not something others can give to me, that the government or the economy can provide me.
Success is not determined by luck, chance, race, creed, color or religion but hard work, creativity, follow through and persistence.
I refuse to not have My Success. I refuse to quit prior to My Success and I will do everything ethical in claiming my right to My Success.
My Success is My Duty, My Obligation and My Responsibility.”
Exercises in Understanding
- Why do you think it’s important to put your success ahead of your family’s and your company’s? [Hint: If you’re on a plane the plane loses cabin pressure and the oxygen masks drop, you have to put yours on first because if you can’t breathe you can’t do squat for anybody else.]
- What happens when anything suddenly goes from not being a choice not being an option to something that has to happen? [Hint: You need to get to that place where success is not an option. What do you need to handle in order to get to that place when you think about creating success?]
- Why is how you attain your success so, so, so important? [No hints. Work this out on your own.]
- Since success is dependent upon hard work, creativity, follow-through and persistence, which one of these do you need to get better at doing? [Hint: Which one of these are you not doing enough of? Take a real inventory of actions your taking associated to each of these.]
- Have you ever considered that success is also your right? Why would that be? Has anyone tried to convince you other wise? Who was it and why did you believe it? [No hints. Dig deep. You’re worth it.]
