So, what is success to you? Many people go through life thinking that they are successful or at least happier than rich people. Now, I always have to ask myself a certain question, how is it that everyday people can claim that they’re happier than the rich? Now, surely both sides have their pitfalls? If you missed my last article on The Key to Success, just click on the link provided after reading this one.
When it comes to success, you can’t look at one thing such as, money or time. You have to examine everything when looking at the big picture. Let’s look at an example: person A over here has lot’s of Money, while person B has lots of time but no money, yet again, person C has time and money. Again, what is success to you?
Let’s get back to person A shall we? These are the people who have a considerable amount of Money, yet have no time to enjoy it. There are many pitfalls to this and I’m sure you’ll be able to point some out that I don’t. These people have no life, they work many hours throughout the week with no time for family, and they may or may not have very many possessions. See the problem?
Now person B on the other hand, these people work full or part time, yet have no Money to do the things they want to do. Instead, they’ll have mounds of debt, nothing to show for, and always worried about living paycheck to paycheck. These people generally have more time, but they’re usually spending that time working on projects at home that need to get done. Sound familiar? This is the average person we’re talking about.
Last, but certainly not the least, we have person C. These are the people who are fed up with the daily grind of going to work and have set out own their own. They are the ones who have: managed to find a balance between time and business, learned to manage their money so they don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck, don’t always have to have the next new thing, and they certainly don’t by things they don’t need.
The working class Average Joe generally finds himself/herself wanting something they can’t afford yet. When you’ve got money, it’s generally a whole different attitude. It’s more or less, “do I really need a 3rd generation iPad when I have the 2nd?”
Yet at the same time, the Average Joe, tends to be poor, worried about where their next Paycheck is going to come from, worried whether or not the lights are going to get shut off or if they’ll have enough food, struggling to pay the taxes on the property that they “own,” not to mention, scrambling to fix their work vehicle when it breaks down on one of their work days, thus costing them more money and time. I don’t know, sounds pretty stressful to me, just to be an Average Joe?
Again, success is numerous factors, how much time you have, do you have worry about paying the next bill, are you loved by your family, and what about your overall health? There maybe one or two things missing here, but you get the idea. Let’s close this out by asking you to leave a comment….

What is the Key to Success? Is there really a such Key? Many people may not realize it, but there is. I’ve been learning a lot about Success lately and I have to say that I’m blown away. There are literally tons of valuable information and teachers available, so there is no reason not to succeed.
There is perhaps one single most important factor that determines Success. What is it? Mindset. That’s right, it’s merely how you think and perceive the world. It never fails, time and time again people often make an excuse. These excuses range from, it’s already been done, to I can’t turn my passion into my job.
This kind of thinking, is dangerous. Not only is it dangerous to the way you think, but it’s also dangerous to your health. Health and Success go hand in hand, if you’re not healthy, you won’t be successful. I’m not talking about a healthy body, although that’s important too, no I’m talking about a healthy mind.
Have you ever seen the type of person that is a loving and caring person, but perhaps they care and love a bit too much? You know the ones, they’re always tired when they come home, they never take time to enjoy the day, and little things like playing with the kids annoy them? That’s not healthy, that’s not successful.
In order to be successful, we have to take care of ourselves, yes that included taking breaks. If you haven’t found your passion yet, keep trying, you’ll find it. There is already someone doing what you love and making money at it, no reason you can’t too.
Think positive and visualize already having what you dream and the doors will open.
