7 Life Changing Keys to Success


Success does not belong to a select few; success belongs to “you,” if you’re willing to go after it.

Success is never handed out, you must take it, but you don’t take it by force.  You take success by becoming a successful person internally.  When you succeed on the inside, by taking on the thoughts of a successful person, the results will show on the outside.

Today I want to talk about seven life changing keys to success; these concepts will alter your life if you implement them.

Seven Life Changing Keys to Success:


1. Do and Dare

“The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The ‘sure-thing’ boat never gets far from shore.”
–Dale Carnegie


Are you daring to do the impossible?  There should never be a time in your life when you’re not attempting something impossible.  It is the impossible that stretches you and shows you what you can become.

Do and dare, get out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself.  Stretch the amount of work you do, stretch your expectations, and stretch your imagination.

2. Double Your Failure Rate

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”
–Thomas J. Watson


If you want to succeed, you need to fail.  No one succeeds with just a handful of failures.  You won’t be the first person to succeed, after only failing three times.  You need to fail, and fail, and fail; failure is the path to success.  You stumble until you walk.  It is through stumbling that you learn how to succeed.  Your stumbles prepare you for success.

3. Use Your Will
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.”

–Vincent T. Lombardi


Another word for “will” would be “desire.”  To succeed you must desire to succeed more than you desire anything else.  Successful people aren’t stronger than others, and they aren’t necessarily anymore intelligent than others, but they have more desire than others.  They have a burning desire to see their goal realized.  Do you have that same burning desire?  Without desire, you won’t have the motivation to accomplish the goal.

4. You need Determination and Commitment

Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”

–Mario Andretti


Are you determined, one person determined will accomplish more than a thousand people who are just interested.  You have to have the determination of a bull dog.  You have to latch on, and refuse to let go.  Desire, determination and commitment will strategically position you to succeed.

5. Excellence is Required
“No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.”

–Charles Kendall Adams

Are you providing excellent service?  To be the best, you must provide the best service.  You must give your customers what they can’t get from anywhere else.

How good is your service?  Can it be duplicated?  Is it excellent?

6. Vision is Necessary

“The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart – this you will build your life by, and this you will become.”
–James Allen


To succeed, you must ponder success.  Only through pondering success will you create the desire to make success a reality.  You must have a clear vision of what you are about to achieve.  This desire must consume you.  If the desire consumes you, it will one day be realized.

7. Go To Success

“Success doesn’t come to you, you go to it.”

–Marva Collins


Success won’t fall in your lap; you have to go after it.  You have to chase it down.  You have to want it more than anything else.  A lazy person won’t succeed, only those who are willing to work; those who are willing to “go to it.”

Are you willing to go to success?  Do you have a clear vision, do you have a burning desire, are you willing to fail, if you are, you are well on your way to success.
