Success Leaves Clues
This next article is part of an ongoing series here at TSB Magazine called The Success Principles. The series is based on the 64 principles laid out by Jack Canfield in his course of the same name. If youre new, I always suggest starting any series from the beginning.
Principle 9: Success Leaves Clues
This next lesson is a short sweet reminder that you don’t have to figure it all out on your own. No matter what in life you personally want to accomplish- someone has already done it and left clues in the form of books, manuals, audio and video programs, university classes, online courses, seminars, and workshops.
If you’re a regular reader of TSB Magazine then I know you are already taking advantage of this tremendous tool for success.
Whether you want to make a million dollars, write a best selling book, master dating and relationships, build a fortune 500 company, climb Mt. Everest, win a kickboxing tournament, learn a new language, and virtually everything else you want to do their are books and courses on how to do it.
I just finished reading the Four Hour Work Week the other day, and almost started crying upon its completion. The book laid out my plan for living my life to perfection. I could not have asked God to write a better book for my particular wants and needs.
No matter what your wants and needs are, I am sure there is a book out there that is perfectly tailored to guide you to your ideal life.
Canfield provides 3 key ways to take advantage of clues:
1. Seek out a teacher, coach, mentor; a manual, book, or audio program; or an internet resource to help you achieve one of your major goals.
2. Seek out someone who has already done what you want to do, and ask the person if you can interview him or her for a half hour on how you should best proceed.
3. Ask someone if yo can shadow them for a day and watch them work. Of offer to be a volunteer, assistant, or intern for someone you think you can learn from.
When you take advantage of all this information, you’ll discover that life is simply a connect-the-dots game, and all the dots have already been identified and organized by someone else. All you have to do is follow the blueprint, use the system, or work the program that they provide.
