This Is The Only Way To Be Successful

I believe it is safe to say everyone wants to be successful.  Success is inextricably linked to being happy.  I know I can say that everyone wants to be happy.  The question is, why is success (or happiness) so elusive for some?  The answer is easy.  There is only one surefire way to experience success in your life, and that is to get started.

So many of us make life more complicated than it is, when the principles are very simple.  The only way to experience whatever you desire in life is to get started.  Do you want to lose 10lbs? Get started.  Do you want to find love?  Get started working on yourself.  Do you want to go back to school and get your degree? Get started.  Do you want to change the world?  Get started, then.

We make so many excuses on why we don’t have certain things in our lives when the truth is,  we haven’t done the work.  So if you want to see, be, or do something that will make you happy, then get started.  Getting started (and continuing until you succeed) is the only way to become successful.

Step out of the box!





As we grow older, many of us become “fixed in our thoughts” or set in our ways.  When we don’t explore new ideas, foods, and experiences we limit out opportunities.  There is so much to life than what we experience in our homes, on our block, on our street, and in our neighborhoods.   The world is so vast.  There are wonderful people to meet, beautiful things to see, and exciting places to  go.  Step out of your box, and see what’s new.

Pray, meditate, and take action.

Live essentially,
