Secrets of the Rich – Part 2

Posted on Aug 27 2008

Who is Successful?

Many people who achieve fortune in the world are not born rich. But they accomplished it through hard work and a plan of action.

Every type of person on earth can become successful. There are saints and scoundrels; philanthropists and thieves; poets and politicians; young and old. There are no limitations or physical boundaries for success.

Success comes to those who deeply think about success and constantly strive for it!

Although many rich financiers at the turn of the century had no formal education, they overcame that and went on to great fame.

Some people strive towards a single goal from early in life, and often attain that goal while still young. Others are willing to
risk new adventures later and still attain success.

“It’s never too late to learn,” wrote Malcolm Forbes, the money magnate. “I learned to ride a motorcycle at 50 and fly balloons at 52.”

Whatever your task, whatever your obstacles, you can be as successful as anyone else. Study the people who accomplished recognition in the areas of your pursuit. How did they achieve their goals? And don’t be afraid you don’t have what it takes.

As Daniel Webster wrote, “There is always room at the top.”

Forming Conviction-

The single attribute that every successful person has is the one-pointed devotion to attain a goal.

“There in the sunshine are my highest aspirations,” wrote Louisa May Alcott, “I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”

What are your desires? How can you form them into definite goals that you can attain?

Lawrence Peter wrote, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll probably end up somewhere else.”

Maybe you’re studying a craft or skill.

Perhaps you’re caught in a rung of the corporate ladder.
Or, you might feel constricted by your family and the environment around you. Which star are you reaching for?

“Ours is a world where people don’t know what they want and are willing to go through anything to get it,” wrote Don Marquis.

Take the time to think about your own aspirations.

Look inside to find what feels right. Almost everyone entertains the notions of fame and fortune, but put on the ‘costume’ that fits you.

Conviction requires certain qualities of action.

You must be sincere and be willing to assume responsibility. And you need the self-discipline necessary to work towards your goals.

  • Are you prepared to achieve your dreams?
  • Can you form their reality in your mind?
  • Will you devote your entire being to attaining what you want?
