Have you ever wondered, if life was all that could be? A great myth in American society often conceived by the idea that somehow, someway, we are all entitled to a great life. First off, we must determine what indeed is a great life. Is that a life filled with moments of happiness joy and triumph? Or is it a life more ruled by a monetary value engaged by our ability to attain great wealth?
Along this journey many people find themselves questioning and wondering is it all possible to have the success of my dreams. Often times along this road to success, every man’s dreams will be clouded by the irony of reality, when to each his own faces… the common everyday struggles of life.
And in this time of struggle and hardship mankind is often looking for a scapegoat, a way out, someone to blame for when things apparently go wrong.
A Quote From Jim Rohn
Jim Rohn said; “you must take responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself“. That was from Jim Rohn America’s foremost business philosopher.
Now I’m no Jim Rohn, I’m merely a mortal man, however in my journeys through life, business and I too have found the image in mirror to be the telltale sign of my own weakness. Often times in my life when I faced my most perilous moments I to look in the mirror only to say why… why am I not successful, and who’s to blame.
The reflection in the mirror never lies, and in reality if I was man enough to admit, I had my own self to blame. So in reality, as reality strikes, there is but one person to blame and that is yourself. That reality is strikingly accurate and as straightforward as it may be, and you and you alone stands to bear the burden of acceptance, acceptance that’s Yes… it’s me to blame, but fact is acceptance is the first step in resolution.
Another Fact, if you want to be successful, you have to take 100% responsibility for everything that you have experienced in your life. This may include your achievements, any results you might’ve produced, and even the very relationships you’re involved in, it could be a matter of health or even physical fitness, income claims and income aspirations, feelings of joy, sadness and even the realization and shock of your debts, all come into play when you examine why, why am I struggling for success.
It is often all too common in each and every member of mankind to be conditioned to blame someone outside of ourselves for the parts of our life we simply don’t like. Or you can turn to some astrological charts, some wizards and rub even crystal balls to try to discover what you’re missing in the big picture.
But I’ve often found, a simple trip to the bathroom mirror, reveals the number one culprit in the game we call life. At inside myself and inside you, lies the reason and if embraced, every answer you need to be successful.
And as author Jack Canfield would write, back in 1969, only one year out of graduate school, I had the good fortune to work with W Clement Stone. He was a self-made millionaire worth 600 million at the time. And that was long before all the.com millionaires came along in the 1990s. Jack Canfield writes Stone was also an American premier success guru. He was a publisher of success magazine, author of the success system that never fails, and co-author with Napoleon Hill of success through a positive mental attitude.
Mr. Canfield goes on to say when I come pleading my first weeks orientation, Mr. Stone asked me if I took 100% responsibility for my life. Mr. Canfield said I think so, and then replied simply…well, I guess I’m not sure.
He went on to say have you ever blamed anyone for any circumstance in your life? Have you ever complained about anything? Jack would reply… I guess I have… Then the reply came don’t guess. Think! Jack replied simply by saying yes, I have.
In a reply that would put anyone on the spot Jack was simply told that means you don’t take 100% responsibility for your life. Taking 100% responsibility means you acknowledge that you create everything that happens to you. It means you understand that you are the cause of all your experiences.
If you want to be really successful, and I know you do, then you will have to give up blaming and complaining and take total responsibility for your life, that means all your results, both your successes and your failures.
Thus the prerequisite for creating a life of success. It is only by acknowledging that you have created everything up until now and that you can take charge of creating the future you want. As Jack was told, if you realize that you have created your current conditions, then you can uncreate them and re-create them it will.
I guess by reading, and hearing the words of this blog post, perhaps you can determine on your own who has responsibility for your life.
A great quote from George Washington Carver simply reads “99% of all failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses”. George Washington Carver was a chemist who discovered 325 uses for the peanut.
But, all by myself, I can only think of one… Peanut butter.
I encourage you, live the life of your dreams, look into the mirror that hangs on every American wall. And ask yourself these three simple questions.
- Who am I?
- What is my goal?
- Whose duty is it to fulfill it?
And if you’re honest with yourself, the person you see in the mirror can answer all three of those questions in great detail.
People ask me all the time, Dave how did you learn to be successful? I Often tell people, success is a journey not a destination. And as long as that journey is one you enjoy, success comes relatively easy.
Three things you need for success:
- A Goal
- A Destination
- A Way to Get There!
What you will find in Business
In business you may find, it would be much simpler to take a logical well calculated approach to finding a roadmap for your success.
My number one resource for finding that roadmap over all the years that I’ve been online in business, is My Lead System Pro. My Lead System Pro gives every business owner, or potential owner, every single tool necessary for success. I started my first home business back in 1993, back then we did not have MLSP, but… we did not even have the Internet. Now times are different and the Internet has simply become a mainstay in practically all home businesses.
I would love to take you under my wing, and show you all the intricacies that MLSP can solve for you in your home business. I’m not saying your week, or even incapable of doing this on your own, but what I am saying is… I would like to open my notebook, the notebook of my journey through life and business and perhaps see if there is any parallels that our paths cross… in an effort to help you lighten your load and make your journey one thats simple, less stressful, and more rewarding than the image in the mirror has perceived.
I invite you today to take a test drive of MLSP! And Me, Myself and I, Dave Shirley will be more than happy to be your mentor and guide.
