The 10 Golden Secrets of Total Success!
Welcome to my newest, biggest project! For over 25
years, I've studied successful people, I've read the books, attended the workshops,
borrowed and learned and improved every idea I could find. (I even got a Doctorate
along the way!) In my coaching practice, the ideas have proven to be incredibly
powerful! My clients achieve their goals and create the lives they really want!
It's time to write the book!
Initially, the book is being developed as a series of
articles in my weekly email newsletter, TIP's. The articles are listed below.
It's my intention to expand each article into a full chapter and complete the book
by the end of the year. Until then, you can subscribe to TIP's and receive an
article each Sunday evening, via email. To subscribe, Click Here, and complete the
form at the bottom of this page.
As you read the articles, your comments are invited!
How can the chapter be made stronger? Clearer? More practical and more
powerful? What examples would help you profoundly change your life? You'll
find a form to send your comments at the bottom of each article. Obviously, not
every suggestion will make it into the final draft, but your feedback is important!
living) the Life You Want!
Success, and failure, are not vague philosophical concepts. They are the heart of
how we live our lives, spend our days, and use our time, talents and energy. Living
well is about claiming our destiny, achieving our desires, and living with "no
regrets." (Available soon.)
||The First Golden Secret: Integrity & Depth of Character
Success requires balance, the ability to separate the "wheat from the chaff" of
life. Highly successful people know who they are, what they stand for, what they
believe, and what they would die for. There is no need for false fronts, hypocrisy
or deceit. "What you see, is what you get." (Published in TIP's on
||Golden Secret #2: Imagination Rules the World!
Success requires the ability to see the future, to see solutions and imagine the things
that are yet to be! Successful people dream big dreams, they focus on things that
have never happened, and ask "Why not?" Success is not about surviving the
day, it's about creating a better tomorrow. (Published in TIP's on 6-27-99)
||Golden Secret #3: The Power of Self-Discipline!
Highly successful people use their personal power! They understand that the
true meaning of "self-discipline" is to live according to their values while
pursuing their destiny. They understand that ultimate freedom comes from
living the life they choose. They are in charge and they take action!

||Golden Secret #4: Undefeated Optimism!
Living well requires a positive expectation that every problem contains a greater
opportunity, and that life is a marvelous adventure! Successful people expect to
win, they expect great health, wonderful friends, and a rich sense of personal
achievement. Life is good! (Published in TIP's on 7-11-99)
||Golden Secret #5: Planning, Strategy & UnCommon Sense!
Successful people know where they are going. They revise their strategies when
necessary, but they always know their next step. They have a plan, and they expect
to succeed! They are smart, quick, determined and in a hurry! (Published in
TIP's on 7-18-99)
||Golden Secret #6: The Power of Partnerships!
The poet, John Donne, observed that "no man is an island", and the Beatles said,
"I get by with a little help from my friends." Highly successful people
live in a richly rewarding community of friends, family and colleagues. They have
valuable networks, and they nurture these relationships. (Published in TIP's
||Golden Secret #7: The Ability to Work Hard - Effortlessly!
Unusually successful people work very hard, effortlessly!
Their joy, their curiosity and energy are enhanced by their work. They know that
"when you do what you love, you'll never work another day in your life"!
Their passion is to create and contribute, but they never "work"!
(Published in TIP's on 8-1-99)
||Golden Secret #8: Patience and Perspective!
Success requires intensity, impatience, action and focus! And
yet, people who live extraordinary lives, never seem to be in a hurry. They have
time to "smell the flowers", talk with children, and wait for the seeds they
plant to mature into a rich harvest. They know that life is too short to be
rushed! (In TIP's on 8-8-99)
||Golden Secret #9: Know the Rules! (And When to Ignore Them!)
Great leaders know that life has rules, and they are enforced
without favor or preference. But they also know that most of the "rules"
are only current customs. The winners in life have the creativity and daring to
challenge conventional wisdom, without breaking the rules! (Published in TIP's on
||Golden Secret #10: Attitude is Everything!
Unusually successful people know that "Your attitude determines
your altitude." They know that success, wealth and achievement come to those
whose hearts are large enough to contain them. They expect the best, and accept
whatever comes their way, living each day to the fullest. (Published in TIP's on
||Living Well Starts NOW!
Highly successful people know that the "good life" does
not come from having things, but the luxuries of life are often the result of having lived
very well, indeed! Success is not "someday" -- it starts NOW!
Begin living with joy, enthusiasm and success immediately! We'll show you how!
