Success Doesn’t Have to Be Hard


Tom Corley boats - crop

You’ve no doubt had your fill of stories about successful people who failed and failed their way to success. There are many successful people who attended the school of hard knocks.

Abraham Lincoln failed six times in politics before he was elected President of the United States.

Henry Ford’s first automobile company went bankrupt.

Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times with the incandescent light bulb.

R.H. Macy failed seven times before figuring it out.

There are enough successful failures out there to fill volumes of success books.

But history is also replete with stories of successful individuals who did not experience failure.

Andrew Carnegie experienced nothing but success in his march to making millions. Benjamin Franklin, America’s first millionaire, succeeded in just about every endeavor. Warren Buffet’s rise to billionaire status was all but uninterrupted.

My point is that you don’t need to graduate from the school of hard knocks in order to succeed. There’s an easier way.

Call it the fast-track to success.

You just need to adopt the success habits of successful people. Good daily success habits put your life on autopilot.

But, what are those habits?

Well, one way to learn success habits is to find a success mentor who can impart their wisdom and guide you along, making your path to success much smoother.

Mentors are very valuable because they help prevent you from making costly mistakes. They are a bulwark against failing, if you follow their guidance.

Unfortunately, most people are not fortunate enough to be blessed with success mentors and are pretty much on their own, making mistakes and figuring out what to do and what not to do.

Another way to learn about success habits is by reading books about successful people. Success leaves clues and the biographies of successful people will be sprinkled with those clues.

I chose another path. I decided to interview 233 millionaires over a five-year period in order to find out what they did to become successful. Through that research, I learned that the biggest factor in achieving success, happened to be habits.

So, I write books, I blog, I write articles for the media, I do media interviews and I speak to thousands all over the world sharing those Rich Habits.

To the untrained eye, those who have this Midas Touch, seem to coast through life realizing one success after another. But the reality is these individuals have incorporated good daily success habits into their lives and , as a result, have put their lives on autopilot for success.

Why go at success the hard way when the easier approach is to simply mimic the daily habits of successful people?
