Unlocking your success combination

She was exhausted from this thing called life. Each day she woke up with the awareness that she wasn’t where she wanted to be. Life wasn’t what she’d hoped it would be. She needed answers.
Although burdened by the expense of it all, she traveled to see a Sage she had long heard about. It was said that this woman could see into the souls of those who sought her and could immediately give them the keys to unlock their deepest dreams and desires.
Upon her arrival, she was received with such love. It appeared the woman had been expecting her and once she had refreshed her guest, she immediately got down to the heart of the matter.
“You’ve traveled far to get some answers from me,” she said. “Yes,” answered the traveler. “There is a combination to your success and with any combination, you need all, not just some components for the lock to open. Here are the keys to unlocking your success. They are simple keys, but they are not easy. They will require much discipline and fortitude and steadfastness. Do you want them still?”
The traveler affirmed her need for the keys. The Sage said, “Well then, here are your keys and God bless your effort,” as she handed her a sheet of paper with the instructions. They read as follows:
1.) Accept 100% responsibility for your life. No more excuses. No more blaming or finger pointing. You alone determine how you respond to life. Your thoughts, your actions will lead to your results.
2.) Broaden your horizon. You are not your past and the world is bigger than what’s right in front of you. Experiment to find your passion and unearth your talents.
3.) Believe “it” is possible. Believe in yourself. An acorn already has the DNA and programming to be a large oak tree. You too, are designed for greatness, but you must believe.
4.) Act on your positive beliefs. Be willing to pay the price for your success.
5.) Pay for your success now and play later. Success is always cheaper when paid upfront.
6.) Ask, Ask, Ask. Ask and you shall be given. Suppress your pride and ask for opportunities to use your talents and gifts. Many will say no. So, what? Gold requires the sifting through much dirt. Sift your dirt happily.
7.) Do not fear. Just do what you know you should and can do. Feed your faith by entrusting your plans to God and being around positive go-getters.
8.) Pay attention to your results and adjust accordingly.
9.) Commit to your personal growth and find others to mentor and encourage. What you sow, you reap.
10.) Above all, be grateful for who you are, what you have and the hope for a better tomorrow. This will be a barrier against discouragement and despair and enable you to always look for the good in your circumstances.
Are you too in search of the keys to your success? I believe this combination will work for anyone who is ready to roll up their sleeves and diligently follow. As the new year commences, I am committing to being your partner, friend and coach as you work to making this year your best one yet. Happy New Year.
