Is That What Successful People Do?


Dilbert by Scott Adams

In a world filled to the brim and overflowing with self-help book, CDs, YouTube videos, and the like it’s hard to weed out just what it is that you need to know. In some cases it’s overly redundant, you read one book and feel like you’ve read them all. In other cases you read it and go “Is it really that easy? Is that really all I have to do to be successful?” Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t.

What I’ve learned in my journey is that you really can’t do what other successful people do or follow a motivational book to the T and expect everything to just work out. Everyone in life is on a different path and no two paths are the same. What has worked for one person probably won’t work for you.

Sure there’s the main points of working hard and taking things step by step but that’s really the only common ground. Sure I can go the route and ask “what is success and how do you obtain it” but that’s kind of like asking “What is truth and how do you obtain it”. It’s such a big thing, it’s and enigma which is why it can’t be so easily captured in a book or ten and why there is no secret formula.

So what do successful people do? Who knows? And maybe it doesn’t matter. Because at the end of the day it’s all about: What do you do?
