What is success? Think about it.

Success has very little to do with how smart you are or how good you are. Success does not rely on luck. Success is simply developing that winning attitude and putting feet to your dreams. Action is critical. Whatever you believe, is what you will achieve. If you believe you can, you are right.

Still you can believe all you want, but you also have to add action to that belief. If you don’t get started though, and don’t jump into the game, you do not stand a chance of getting there. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What are you going to choose to do with it?

We all have choices. If I asked, “Do you choose to succeed or fail?”, I doubt many would pick failure. However, by lack of action, and focus, you are picking just that. You have a choice of being a success or a failure. Great achievers will always dream the impossible dream, but they will make the impossible happen. Leaders and winners only accept excellence and press forward moving ahead.

What they find is when they take action to venture where others don’t dare to tread, it becomes easier and easier. The higher they soar, and go, the less competition they find. There are many fabulous opportunities up in high places, but without vision, most are blind to the opportunity.

Take advantage of this. Know what you want and chart your course. Develop a plan and learn to focus on it. If you focus on it and do it, you will accomplish much. While others are sleeping and talking and not doing, take action and soar ahead. Focus. Accept and go for only the best. Take responsibility yourself. No one cares more about you and your dreams than you. Make them happen. You can do it. Go the extra mile, make it happen.

Too often I have people come to me with excuses of why they didn’t do something. Their sponsor didn’t “HELP” them, it was too rainy, it was too cold, it was too sunny, or they would miss the 23rd rerun of some show on TV, so they missed a training call. While it is GREAT if you have a sponsor that is there for you, ultimately your success depends on you, yourself. No one can make you successful, but you.

In my 20 plus years in this industry, I have failed my way through many companies. The sponsors I’ve had that were worth anything were few and far between. Too often, I had HORRIBLE sponsors, that cheated, lied and stole. It was sad, but true. Still NOT one of them could steal my dreams. Not one of them could keep me down and make me fail. Ultimately, I was responsible for me, myself and I. I could have quit and given up many times, but if I had, I would not be here today and I would have missed the dance. I LOVE that song that says you have a choice to sit it out or dance. I choose to dance and no one or anything in the world can stop me. I am totally unstoppable. I am building a solid team of winners, people with much more talent than myself. They, too, are unstoppable because they know where they are going and are not stopping until they get there.

When we all arrive at the top, we will have one HUGE party and celebrate together. Until then, we’re moving forward one day at a time. New people are joining our team daily, and they too have visions and dreams. Some have experience and others do not. Some are already successful in their own right, others are just beginning. They come from all walks of life, all sorts of careers, and yet they all have one thing in common. They are looking for security, looking for a better way, looking to build a business of their own, looking to make the world a better place. I find it fun and challenging to meet them all and I learn as much from them as they do from me, and we are building a solid team. I made up a quote a long time ago, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” It does and it will.

No matter what your dream is, NEVER let anyone or anything stand in the way. Don’t just dream life away, be a participant. Get started with zeal and focus. Focus on where you want to go and nothing can stop you.

Hope to one day see all of you on the beaches of the world as we travel the highway of life together. I love traveling and enjoy visiting with those that have achieved their dreams as well.
