10 Secrets to Success

What is it that makes people successful and I mean really successful compared to you or me? Are they smarter or do they work harder? Are they risk takers or have powerful and influential friends?

The financial newspaper Investors Business Daily (IBD) asked these same questions a few years ago and started a multi-year search for the answer. They studied industry leaders, investors and entrepreneurs to understand the traits they all had in common that contributed to their success. Reproduced here is their list of 10 Secrets to Success along with my commentary on each no-so-secret, ‘secret’.

I decided to reproduce the list here and comment on each of the traits in hopes of motivating you and myself in the process. It’s time for me to take my own advice and start on the path to my dreams. I hope to motivate you, by using myself as an example.

I originally came across this list when I was staring at some papers on a refrigerator owned by someone who was very successful – both personally and financially. My family and I had just spent the night as a guest in a great house in the suburbs of Boston. We were living life large as we played pool in the rec room, drank wine from the wine cellar, and enjoyed a dip in the hot tub. The problem was, neither of the couples in the house owned the property or the life we were pretending to have. You see, my friends were house sitting for the original owner and they had invited us to stay for the weekend.

It wasn’t until the morning after our little ‘party’ that I noticed something taped to the refrigerator – something that impacts me each time I read it. It was the IBD 10 Secrets to Success. Once my head cleared, I quickly copied them down and read them over and over again. After our vacation I made copies and posted them in my home office and inside a journal I decided to keep.

The problem was, after a couple of months I forgot about the secrets and they fell by the wayside. And so did my actions towards my goals. At the time the articles 7 Ways to Grow the Action Habit or How To Motivate Yourself – Self Motivation didn’t exist and I lost my motivation. Well, I re-discovered the list and want to share it with you now. I hope you take these not-so-secret, secrets to heart and realize your dreams – whatever they may be.

1. How You Think is Everything.

Always be positive. Think Success, not Failure. Beware of a negative environment.

This trait has to be one of the most important in the entire list. Your belief that you can accomplish your goals has to be unwavering. The moment you say to yourself “I can’t…”, then you won’t. I was always given the advice “never say I can’t” and I’d like to strike those words from the dictionary.

I’ve found that from time-to-time my attitude waivers. A mentor of mine once said “it’s ok to visit pity city, but you can’t stay and there comes a time when you need to leave”. Positive things happen to positive people.

2. Decide upon Your True Dreams and Goals: Write down your specific goals and develop a plan to reach them.

Write down my dreams and goals? Develop a plan to reach them? You mean like a project plan? Yes, that’s exactly what this means. You may have heard the old adage: A New Years resolution that isn’t written down is just a dream, and dreams are not goals.

Goals are those concrete, measurable stepping stones of achievement that track your progress towards your dreams. My goal is to start a second career as a freelance writer – what are your goals?

3. Take Action. Goals are nothing without action.

Be like Nike and “Just do it”. I took action by reaching out and started writing. Every day I try to take some action towards my goals. It may be small, but it’s still an action. Have you taken action towards your goals?

4. Never Stop Learning: Go back to school or read books. Get training & acquire skills.

Becoming a life long learner would benefit us all and is something we should instill in our kids. It’s funny that once you’re out of school you realize how enjoyable learning can be. What have you learned today?

5. Be Persistent and Work Hard: Success is a marathon, not a sprint. Never give up.

I think every story of success I read entails long hard hours of work. There is no getting around this and there is no free lunch. But, if you’re working towards something that you’re passionate about, something you love – then is it really work?

6. Learn to Analyze Details: Get all the facts, all the input. Learn from your mistakes.

I think you have to strike a balance between getting all the facts and making a decision with incomplete data – both are traits of successful people. Spend time gathering details, but don’t catch ‘analysis paralysis’.

7. Focus Your Time And Money: Don’t let other people or things distract you.

Remain laser focused on your goals and surround yourself with positive people that believe in you. Don’t be distracted by the naysayer’s or tasks that are not helping you achieve your goals.

8. Don’t Be Afraid To Innovate: Be different. Following the herd is a sure way to mediocrity.

Follow through on that break-out idea you have. Ask yourself “What would I do if I wasn’t afraid?”

9. Deal And Communicate With People Effectively: No person is an island. Learn to understand and motivate others.

Successful people develop and nurture a network and they only do that by treating people openly, fairly and many times firmly. There is nothing wrong about being firm – just don’t cross the a-hole line. How do you deal with people?

10. Be Honest And Dependable: Take responsibility, otherwise numbers 1 – 9 won’t matter.

Enough said.

    Thanks for sharing this list!

    I would also point out that it’s very important to begin with a clear definition of what “success” means to you. Otherwise, you run the risk of ending up being an unsuccessful success.

      99% of the people will agree with this post; 1% will actually take action. That’s why we have the “haves” and “have nots.” Thank you.

      • http://kayamo.org/ bo4610

         Man you nailed it, indeed less people will take action. I was reminded of Jack Canfield’s training when he raised a fifty dollar bill and asked the audience who wants to have it and everyone just raised hands and Jack just stand there waiting for someone to go get it. He said taking action is what separates winners from losers. That training was stucked in my head forever. Gee thanks for sharing the secret to success. =)

      Patrick,

    How you think is definitely everything. I wrote about it in Work in Progress:

    “One of the biggest things that held me back in life was my limiting belief about what was possible. I was always talking about how I couldn’t do this or how I couldn’t be that. Is it really surprising to see that what I believed actually came true?

    We all need to start seeing the world from a different perspective. That comes from going out everyday and keeping our eyes open to all the possibilities. It comes from learning new and exciting things that force us to stretch our minds and move outside our comfort zones.”

    The common thread I share with you is that I too am starting a second career as a freelance writer. And its time for me also to wake up and turn my dreams into clear goals. So it felt really nice to reaaffirm whats important through this post. Of all, I think three secrets are the most important –
    Secret 1, Secret 3 and Secret 5.

    I try to take at least a small step each day come what may.
    Thanks for the article, again.

  • http://www.mysuperchargedlife.com Jeff@My Super-Charged Life

    I agree with you that the first secret has got to be the most important. This is a topic that really interests me. I am becoming more and more convinced that we are surely only limited by our own thoughts. I have just started writing myself and it is sometimes hard to stay positive. You have a nice blog and it looks like you have created some good readership. Any tips for for someone just starting out?

    That sums up pretty much with your article.

    I think it’s also important to get over fear of success itself. For many, their deepest fear is not that they are inadequate, it’s that they are powerful beyond measure.

    My weakness is #6. I am never quite sure where to go find “the details”. And, even when I get them, I’m not well-suited temporarily to long deliberations. Thus, I often end up “winging it”…which sometimes works…but I often regret that I didn’t spend a little more time on my decision.

    #11: Dare to Suck
    You’ll find this list in various forms, but the entry I never see is Dare To Suck. That is, you must realize, come to terms with, and find a way to turn into a positive, the reality that any long-term skill worth acquiring–whether it’s playing an instrument, writing, or making fine furniture–entails a long, exhausting period of not being very good at it. In other words, if all you have in mind is the endpoint at which the world acclaims your skill, then you’ll never make it through the wilderness of mediocrity because IT’S NOT WORTH IT. Long-term, hard-work, persistence goals only pay off in retrospect, if the endpoint is all you care about. You have to find a way to enjoy the journey.

    This sounds more negative than it is. It’s just a reminder (direly needed in an achievement-oriented culture) that being an exemplary practitioner is not the only reason for doing something. There is value in dicking around and hanging it out there. But you need to find that value for yourself. It’s the only way you’ll get through.

      I agree. Most people are far to risk-averse when it comes to trying new things and chasing opportunities.

      No good advice nor smart sysmet will make you successful unless YOU do something.

      It’s not an easy task to go the whole way and get something actually done.
      Lack of motivation and stress while making hard decisions can stop you anytime.

      The responses I have read are atrocious. Here is why; the spelling and grammar is below average and the use of shorthand is grating.
      However, I can’t and won’t be derisive or obstruct your determination to succeed, as most of the responders, by name, originate from a global multi-national and multi-ethnic culture. But, I will ask for your time and effort to learn effective writing and communication as a part of your desire to achieve success.

  • Richardlikea

    I guess the biggest one is: 
    Persist. Keep on doing what you do.

     I learned from an old book about the Resistance, the negative thoughts that creep up when you want to take action. Thoughts like ‘I can’t do this’, ‘Does this really work?’, ‘I have to take a nap, I will be motivated after it’, ‘This is not for me, I don’t have the skills’ etcetera etcetera. It’s literally THIS that stops you from taking action. And we all know, you have to take little steps EVERYDAY to walk the path. The most important thing that helped me to stay motivated was MEDITATION.Meditation is one of the key thing to me when you want to achieve a goal. It gives you the opportunity to recognize that Resistance, say to it something like ‘haha, Resistance, I know that it’s you’ and keep doing it anyway.Hope I helped!

    Also when it comes to fear. There’s a book that entitled “Feel the fear and do it anyway”  The cover of this book states “How to turn your fear and indecision into confidence and action”. … It says, feel that fear … and just DO IT ANYWAY. It makes the point that, there is actually NOTHING TO FEAR in this world but fear itself

    These are great questions you ask in the beginning of this piece and I fully agree with all 10 Secrets to Success listed here.  I practice these 10 Secrets daily and I would also like to add to this list “The law of Attraction.”  ”That which is like unto us is drawn” or put simply, “What we think about we attract, whether it be positive or negative.”  The Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the universe.  This law and every law of the universe never change, and they are forever and everywhere.  We really need to be careful of what we think, for we will attract just that.  The direction of our thoughts are a choice, so if we change our thoughts, we can change our realities into what we desire them to be.

    “Right opportunity? Right time? Right skills? In all honesty.” says  by Jason Njoku (CEO of Iroko Partners), with his mouth, i too want to say that STOP wasting your time looking for easy ways to success. There has never been an easy way. Nobody will give you a million dollar because you have an idea that you think is killer. Wake up from your dreams ! If you want to be successful, you have to stay FOCUSED; build what you have to build, experiment, study, improve and pivot. Then you will be successful, it doesn’t happen overnight.

    I agree and believe that success needs persistent or perseverance plus discipline and moral values. Really a life long process. Many people were very successful at the early stage of their lives but later they fall and many in the long run bloom. Never disregard honesty because honesty is a good policy.

    This entrepreneurial and success in general list has inspired me even more to do what I need to do.

    I love the concept of writing down your goals not just thinking them with their notion of the New Years
    Resolution is just a dream not a goal if not written down. My goals are all jotted down formally now.

    Perhaps the most important part is only focussing on things and tasks that bring you closer to your goals and don’t let you get distracted.

    Ohhh ! Poor men ! When I was on a trip to a small town found several people in the middle age sitting at the door of their humble homes talking to each other .

    After a few days I asked one of them why wasted much time talking if they could be working and getting more things for themselves. At the same moment he said he already had everything here , my wife , my children and my friends to tell good things in our lives .

    We are nearing the 22 century , and from what I read people have learned nothing of what success really is . Success is get home early to talk to your children , to your wife , listen to them and interargir positively .

    Achieving success is not put millions of dollars into their accounts but put millions of satisfactions in personal life . The goal of achieving success is the success of life in its fullness . Success is not dependent on day to day targets but it depends on what stage we are living . What is the objective of achieving billion after 60 years? I can answer for all : let your kids spend all of it in a very few years. We have to be careful with these monstrous ideas to make wealth so fast .
    Please think before writing ridiculous articles like this .

    Sorry, have to disagree with this. Ambition is the one & only thing you need to succeed in life !!! Ambition will make you take action, work hard, seek knowledge, train, seek friends, make you network, etc… ultimately make you succeed !!. None of the other traits really matter, not that I am saying, one should not be honest or etc…

    Nice list. “Never stop learning” is a big one. Daily reading is something that has helped me tremendously in my life. “All great leaders are readers”
