11 Secrets to Success

Hello everyone!

With the start of the new year (school year, that is and welcoming of a new season ahead) I wanted to share with you this amazing post I read a few days ago from a blog I frequent ~ http://www.ArunShanbhag.com. September is always a great time to renew goals, “get back on track” and start living the life you’ve always wanted to live (if you’re not already doing so right now!!!).

I’m adding a couple of my own thoughts and quotes to the list as well, while we’re at it!

12) LET GO. Whatever does not serve you, your body, mind or spirit in a positive way, let it go. You can’t be a success if you have anything toxic holding you back.

13) IT’S NEVER TOO LATE. It’s never, ever too late for anything. Erase words like, “should have, could have, would have…” from your vocab and live life with no regrets! Here’s a favourite quote, “It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” ~ George Eliot

14) Enjoy. Be Happy. Smile. And Breathe! Sure, we all have stressful patches in life but we can’t let those events or failures bring us down. You have to enjoy each and every day of your journey even when things feel hard. This quote always helps me lighten up! “Life has become immeasurably better since I have been forced to stop taking it seriously.”
~ Hunter S. Thompson.

So with that, eat more turmeric and wishing you all a happy September!

Decades ago when I subscribed to the Investor’s Business Daily, they had an inside section called IBD’s 10 Secrets to Success. I clipped out that section, and every so often would go over the list to make sure I was following it. I am sharing it with you all, and archiving this valuable, yellowing scrap of newsprint.

Here the authors do not provide any philosophies or elitist quotes, but simple gems. Not to write in your diary with flourishes, or share on twitter or Facebook, but to apply to your life, every day. This is the real stuff. My pithy comments in parentheses. And could not resist adding a 11th.

  1. How you think is everything:
    Always be positive. Think success, not failure. Beware of a negative environment. (Avoid gossip and don’t believe it.)
