7.9 Things I Learned About Success From Darth Vader
Unless you have been living in a cave, you have probably seen Star Wars 3. I did some 'thinking outside the box' and came up with some ideas about success from watching the movie.
1. Perseverance - If it doesn't kill you it only makes you stronger.
Successful people persist. They're tenacious and dogged. You can put an obstacle in front of them?They go around it, or over it, or even plough thru it. The path to success, filled with obstacles it is.
2. Discipline - Practice, practice, practice.
Successful people practice what they do. They're doin' it, doin' it. When other people are resting they're still doin' it. They have formed a winning mindset, and are willing to work hard, and put in the effort in order to achieve their goals. What may look easy to some, only becomes easy after countless, repeated efforts. If you want to become better you have to practice.
3. Have a mentor - Find someone who has achieved what you want and follow his path.
Successful people find a mentor who has achieved success and follow their path. Success leaves clues. Want to become rich in real estate? Look it up in google. Want to grow your 401k? Look up successful investors. The key is to do some research in your area and find out who has already achieved what you want.
4. Willing to get the job done - Getting your hands dirty.
Successful people understand that sometimes they have to get their hands dirty in order to get the job done. If you're a CEO that may mean answering phones, folding letters, packing orders. For others it could be menial tasks, work you just don't want to do, or anything that you normally don't do.
5. Be prepared to go it alone - There's no I in team, but there are 3 in millionaire.
Successful people know that sometimes they have to follow their dreams alone. Sometimes everyone around you will abandon your vision. It takes a strong character to go it alone. What usually happens is everyone hops back on your success train once it's come in.
6. You are always good at something - We all have a talent we are good at.
Successful people know what they are good at. They have practiced their talent. Honed it. Excelled at it. The key is for you to find what you are good at and do the same.
7. Consistent action - Step up and keep stepping up.
Successful people take consistent action. Notice how I said 'consistent'. We can all take action once in a while. It's successful people that constantly take action that getting them to their goals. The key to success is to act constantly. Money doesn't grow on a rolling stone?or is that moss?
7.9 Focus, focus, focus - Hit the bullseye
Successful people know how to focus. They focus on only one money making idea and take it from cradle to grave. They don't have one idea, then have another idea next week, and another the week after that. Focus on one money making idea and take it as far as you can.
So to wrap up, it takes perseverance, discipline to achieve your goals. It's good to have a mentor. Don't be afraid to do the job or to go it alone. Use your talents. Constantly act and focus like a laser.
Oh yeah...Always keep your lightsaber safety on!
Yours for excellent success,
P.S. May Success Be With You.
