What is the Strangest Secret to Success?

Mar 14, 2008
Success is such a complex word that when people say, žalmost half of the population in a certain country is successful,Ó the information is so vague that they still have to define the real concept of success. This is because the word success can mean a lot of things and each denotation and connotation is dependent on the kind of situation and the turn of events.

Nevertheless, success has a universal definition that people may use to define and to classify what is successful.

According to an article written by Earl Nightingale, žSuccess is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.Ó This simply means that people become what they think about.

He further stressed that a person who knows where he is going, has a goal to aim, and an ambition to follow, then that is what success would mean. So to speak, if a person does not know where he or she is headed to, then, there are higher probabilities that the person had failed.

The Concept of Success

Many people, who are adept in linguistics and etymology of words, have tried to come up with the greatest definition they could ever give to success. But, after so many researches and psychological studies, the definition of Nightingale seems to be the clearest and the most realistic definition.

Simply put, what Nightingale is trying to explain is that success starts from the day a person realizes what he or she wants to become and thinks of a way to pursue it.

The problem with most people who are buried deep with failure is that they tend to neglect the capability of their mind to foresee and project the things that they want to do.

There are instances wherein some people keep on working hard and yet success seemed to be so far away. On the other hand, there are people who seem to be not exerting any effort at all and yet they achieve everything.

It is from this point of view that others think that luck seems to be available to people who can afford to obtain them. It is like they have the powers of Midas touch, where everything turns into gold. It is like they have the world in the palm of their hand, ready to take the turns according to their fate and destiny.

The truth is that success befalls into people who have already set a long-term goal in their lives. They have already set their mind to it, think about it day and night, and find the right time, place, and means to make it real. What they view with success is no longer a dream that usually lasts for hours only. What they see, from the start that they realized they want to do something and worked towards its realization, is a solid fulfillment of their dreams, something that they can touch and feel.

It is such a pity that there are still many people do not get the best things in life and that they continue to fail in spite of the hardships that they have gone through. This is because they fail to take charge of their thoughts. They neglected the fact that what they can do with their mind is exactly what they can do with their life.

These people who are constrained with failures are those who fall short of setting up a goal and focusing to find a way to reach that goal.

What they should be doing is on focus more on want they wan tin life. It is a simple mind-over-matter concept. It may not be easy at first but as you gradually program your mind to make it happen, it will surely happen.

In fact, other people contend that willpower is not solely an important factor in making things happen or in being successful. What it needs is programming in order to have direction and step-by-step process. Without direction, things will go astray.

People should keep in mind that the human mind is such a powerful tool that it can even move innate things when initiated. Hence, never underestimate the power of the mind because it is the single and strangest secret to success.

Indeed, success is not everything what other people used to believe in. Success is simply what you have set on your mind and the things that will follow will be the ways on making things into reality.

You can also be successful and the means to achieve it is no longer a secret because everything will happen if you just put your mind to it.
