The Art of Success – Article #1 – These Misconceptions Might Be Keeping You Stuck


These Misconceptions Might Be Keeping You Stuck

What two words can sink your success faster than anything else?

“I know.”

You probably grew up with the idea that if you read some information and can recite it back, then it’s something that you “know” and are able to apply to your life.

When it comes to the success that you want, nothing could be further from the truth.

If you want to be successful, you have to understand success.

What’s the difference?

Understanding is not just intellectual; it’s experiential.

When you understand something you’ve gotten to the heart of it and felt it from the inside out. The teaching is a part of you then, and you can apply it with ease and start seeing results.

Because the truth is, if you’re not getting the results that you want in your life, there’s something that you don’t understand. That’s all it is.

And that’s why I’m starting this series by correcting a pair of common misconceptions that might be keeping you stuck or in a constant state of struggle and frustration.

Common Misconception #1: Success is a future destination.
People usually view success as something to be achieved or a place to get to. They think it’s “out there” somewhere, and they strive and struggle to reach this unattainable place.

As you’ll begin to understand if you follow this series, success is not out there. It’s not something that you go out and get. It’s something that you discover in YOU.

Common Misconception #2: Success is a product of luck.
I was raised in a lower-middle-class dysfunctional family, where I was taught to believe that a loving God created us, and yet people lived in poverty and were sick, and they had terrible relationships. They were stuck and couldn’t figure out why.

Meanwhile, other people owned businesses. Some of these were entrepreneurs with a very strong work ethic, and yet, they also were stuck. While others, like a rocket ship, were very successful.

People in my neighborhood pointed at those successful people and said, “They are lucky.”

When I tripled my income in less than 12 months, that’s one of the things they said about me.

I’ll tell you all about it next week, but my rapid rise in income had absolutely nothing to do with luck.

Success has nothing to do with luck.

In fact, I don’t even believe in the concept of luck. And if you want to be successful, I suggest that you immediately delete that word from your vocabulary.

If success doesn’t have anything to do with luck, how does it come about?

As I just said, you discover it within yourself—and you do that through a very orderly process that bridges the gap between where you are and where you want to go.

I’m going to share that exact process with you in weekly installments over the next several months.

You really can double, triple, or even quadruple your income, and it doesn’t have to take a long time or be difficult.

So check back here next week to begin to understand how you can create the prosperous, abundant life of your dreams.
