As life has gone on I have been more and more interested in why we do what we do as human beings. Or even if we have free will at all! I was always wondering if all the successful people I saw were born to be successful or were they just regular people that grew into their success through something else. Did they “attract” success into their life through visualizing like in “The Secret”? Were they born with an abundance of talent that they just capitalized on? Did they have some secret that no one else knew? Or were they just regular people like you and me who learned the skills they needed to accomplish their dreams? The more interviews I saw, the more it stood out that most came from modest backgrounds that believed in either something or themselves. The BELIEVED that they could do magical things.
I’ve also seen really, really smart people get hung up time and time again. They were never able to get past the obstacles that inevitably derailed their dreams. So what is the secret sauce? That is what this blog is all about. Trying to decode what are the clues left behind by successful people that we can emulate and go after our dreams!
I recently read a book that was absolutely transformative. I believe it is one of the most important books ever written when it comes to how to think to be successful and what it is that holds back so many people. It’s called “Mindset” by Carol Dweck. In my next post I will get into the details of the book and explain why I think it is one of the most influential books ever written in explaining how mindset really is the key to success in all area’s of your life.
