Learn the Real Secrets to Success from the Success Hit Parade

Aug 17, 2007
Lovers of pop will forever be telling you the order of their favorite songs on the hit charts or hit parade depending on your age group. You know there is a hit chart for success that if you stay tuned you can use it forever to keep you pointed in the right direction.

How many of you are tired of being told that to be successful you need to set goals, to remain focused and to implement the action necessary to reach your outcomes.

What about, you need to be organized or you need to throw out all the things in your life that you no longer use so that you can allow the new to come in. I relate to this suggestion very well, when I want a new wardrobe.

Sounds easy, but why is it that the majority who set out on this success pathway end up in a daze, just continuing on the same old route that they have been on. For some this can be a lifetime, for others it may be years, and for some they make one attempt then decide that success is not for them. All have developed the same negative thought pattern.

How many of you set the goals and that becomes 'end of story', nothing happens the goals just fade away on the piece of paper they were written on.

Why is it that Sir Richard Branson can take a group of street kids in South Africa and turn them into entrepreneurs with businesses turning over up to the equivalent of $25 million USD? Why is it that Oprah Winfrey can take a similar group of girls in South Africa and create similar results with her leadership academy? Results such as these are available to everyone.

Perhaps it is their need to succeed that is far greater than the majority, or perhaps they have been given the 'Real Secrets' to success!

In the movie, 'In pursuit of Happyness', Will Smith plays the role of Chris Gardner who developed a desire to succeed so great that he could endure all the hardships and obstacles that were placed in front of him, even sleeping in a public bathroom with his son. You may think the movie portrayed an over exaggeration of his life, not so, his life is well worth learning from.

Take Anthony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor and Brian Tracey, just to name a few, they were not given their success on a silver platter, read their stories and a similar pattern emerges.

Take some other real life stories, such as Branson, Winfrey, Lance Armstrong and Warren Buffet. There is a tremendous level of knowledge gained from reading about their lives. The real fact is they will give to you the 'Real Secrets' to attaining success.

What are these 'Real Secrets' and are they attainable by all?

It is very apparent that not everyone will want large sums of money to prove their success. Don't get sidetracked on the money issue, your life will be empty if money is your focus. Better to focus on having fun in your life, adopting an attitude that being successful is fun, the money you need for your future or for survival, will flow through the endeavors that you make and create.

The number one on the chart is the giving back to society what you take.

If you take knowledge, then give knowledge back, if you take riches then give riches back.

Next on the success hit chart, and this may on occasions change places with number one hit, is the absolute desire to change what you are doing, or an absolute desire to be successful with your goals.

Third place must go to being totally obsessed with a willingness to never give up, despite what obstacles of hardships you come across. Your desire and your willingness will become united as you continue with the attainment of each of your goals.

Failures occur because the desire and the willingness fades out or the wrong desire is attached to the goal, or maybe you don't even know what your real desire is.

For a desire to be real you must be able to develop a three dimensional picture of yourself achieving the goal, then develop the ability to just tuck that picture away in you brain's filing system. This is a simple practice that can be used for planning and achieving the goals that you set for yourself on a daily basis. This is the exact same principle used by coaches of elite athletes, they are trained to see, smell and feel the victory long before the event.

When your disillusioned with the readings regarding success being all in the mind, think of it in terms of that three dimensional picture you have put away, use it as your purpose and meaning to giving to you a path to a better life, perhaps even in helping to create a pathway for a better world.

Goals have been dropped to number four on this hit chart, goals are important, but a goal does not mean anything without the decision being made to give back something for what you received and for the desire and willingness to succeed. Goals are your strategies to reach your desire.

Goals are another issue that will bring about a halt to attaining success. The same occurs in a business situation. Business's fail because they have no goals, or no strategies to reach a success level, your success level must have strategies.

Can't write goals? Here is an easier approach for you to try. It has been taught by one of my mentors and used successfully by many. One large piece of paper or a journal so that it is permanent, write your desire at the top of the page, then list twenty ways in which you can reach your desire. Now you can write down anything that comes to you, the first ten will be easy, the next five a little harder and the last five you will no doubt find still harder, but you must have twenty no more, no less. It does not matter how ridiculous they seem at the time these goals are for you, they are what will keep you on the right track. As you are successful with the easy steps your confidence is increased.

Hit number five is definitely about your self confidence. By achieving the small steps as discussed in the last paragraph you are developing a higher level of confidence and a lesser degree of fear. Obstacles will occur, in this area it is beneficial having someone to talk to. Removing the obstacles or learning how to bypass them is where the coach or the mentor can work with you in planning the new route to take, mentors have traveled the same path, their role is about giving back the knowledge they have previously received.

Hit number six has to be about you, about your investing in yourself. Never put your self education to the side, education is never a waste it is an investment into your future. Take every opportunity available for training. You never know when you can give that knowledge to someone else.

Meditation is at number seven. Lao Tzu (c.604c.531 BC) said that 'to the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.' Meditation is for your mind, it removes that never ending chatter that accompanies your busy life, and it gives your mind time to relax, a relaxation that will expand into new and wondrous ideas. Meditation is the precious gift that you give to yourself. All you need is ten or fifteen minutes every day either of a morning or last thing at night and you will find that you will soon become your own wise counselor.

Are you stressed by the mere thought of success or scared of the criticism that you may get from friends and family, then use my final strategy, hit number eight, put music in your life. Research has proven that music alone, or when it is coupled with meditation or even brain wave therapy creates benefits including stress relief, increased creativity, and an ability to think and read faster. Brain Wave Therapy assists in balancing and restoring your brain's sodium and potassium levels, thus reducing mental fatigue and brain fog.

By implementing your own hit chart or hit parade you can create some real fun in your life and reach the level of success you desire.
