5 Incredible Success Lessons:
1. Hard Work
“God gives every bird a worm, but he does not throw it into the nest.” –Swedish Proverb
Success requires hard work. If you’re not working very hard, you’re probably not on the path to success; you may be on a treadmill. It takes hard work to succeed. It takes enough discipline to create the right habits, an attitude that doesn’t relent, and a work ethic that few are willing to bear.
2. Take Responsibility
“Possession of the ball is the key to winning in football, basketball, and the game of life.”
–Laing Burns, Jr.
In the game of life you have the ball. Don’t try to give , luck, or chance. Take the ball and play the game.
Can you even decide the game you play? You have the ball, you decide the game, life has been set up for you to win!
3. Act Like You Can’t Fail
“Act as though it is impossible to fail.” –Anonymous
I didn’t say failure was impossible, but you should act like it is. I didn’t say you wouldn’t fail, but you should act like you won’t. Why? Because your attitude will ultimately determine your altitude. If you see yourself as a success, you will eventually succeed. Act like the successful do, don’t be timid or shy; play like you’re going to win the game.
4. Fail Miserably
“Unless you’re willing to have a go, fail miserably, and have another go, success won’t happen.” –Phillip Adams
It’s okay to fail; it’s even okay to fail miserably. The only way to success is on the path of failure. When you fall, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, learn from your mistakes and keep moving. You have time to succeed. If you stay focused in an area where you’re passionate, and where you have a natural advantage, you will succeed.
5. Plan and Succeed
“An Unfailing Success Plan: At each day’s end write down the six most important things to do tomorrow; number them in order of importance, and then do them.” –Anonymous
This is the recipe for success. Plan your days and then complete your plans. I would be remiss not to mention that you should complete the most important tasks first. These are the ones you usually don’t want to do because they require you to leave your comfort zone. But growth only occurs when you’re uncomfortable, get accustomed to being uncomfortable. Get comfortable being uncomfortable, soon you will grow, soon you will succeed.
In Closing
Dell Crossword said, “Success is not permanent. The same is also true of failure.” If you’ve failed in the past, that doesn’t mean you have to fail in the future. If you follow the steps in this article you will begin to succeed. Make sure you work in an area that makes you happy, ensure you work towards your passion, and one day, that which you seek, you will find.

Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American philosopher, lecturer, essayist, and poet. He’s probably most known for leading the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. His work has influenced nearly every generation of thinker, writer and poet since his time.
So without further adieu, today I want to talk about some of the profound life-lessons we can learn from Emerson. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
7 Amazing Life Lessons from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Lesson 1: Aim Above The Mark
“We aim above the mark to hit the mark.”
To hit the mark, it’s necessary to aim above the mark. If you want to do $100,000 in sales **** year, create a plan that allows you to do $150,000. To hit the mark you have to aim higher!
Do you aim high when setting your goals? Things seldom go exactly as you plan them, aiming allows you to hit the target with the inevitable occurs.
Lesson 2: What You Always See, You Stop Seeing
“If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.”
What you constantly see, you stop seeing! You forget the wonders of your spouse, the reliability of your car, the warmth of your home, because you experience them too often. This is just a reminder, to stop, and marvel and the things you wouldn’t want to live without.
Lesson 3: Conquer Daily
“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.”
Life is a battlefield; to succeed you must “divide and conquer.” Conquer your fears daily; stretch yourself daily. Do something you don’t want to do, something you’re afraid of doing because you might get rejected or you might fail. Do that thing today, and then conquer another fear tomorrow. If you can create the habit of conquering your fear, you can move from the land of impossibilities to the land of possibilities.
Lesson 4: Work on Yourself
“The sum of wisdom is that time is never lost that is devoted to work.”
If there’s a secret to success, it’s work, but not just any work. I’m talking about working on yourself. Time spent working on yourself will yield you many dividends. Commit to work on yourself everyday, to become a little better, a little smarter, and in time the best version of you will be realized.
Lesson 5: Repair Your Character
“No change of circumstances can ***air a defect of character.”
Your thoughts determine your feelings, your feelings determine your actions, and your actions determine your character. A defected character comes from defective thinking and can only be corrected via accurate thinking: Thinking that is in-line with where you want to go and who you want to be. Better circumstances won’t change a defected character; only “better” thinking can do that. If you don’t decide to think “better,” your way-of-thinking will eventually drag you down exposing your defected character.
Lesson 6: Think Bigger
“In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.”
You are only limited by what your heart can imagine. If you can imagine big things, if you can somehow stretch your mind to see the impossible, if you can catch a glimpse of what could be, then you can go there. You must believe in what’s never been done before, you must believe that you can do what’s never been done before; you must be committed to realizing the impossible. If you can see it, you can have it.
Lesson 7: Make Yourself Necessary
“Make yourself necessary to somebody.”
If you didn’t learn anything from this article, please take this final point. Make yourself necessary! Not just to somebody, but to a host of people. When you work on yourself, and grow yourself, and spend years sharpening your skills, you will become valuable; you will become necessary to somebody.
