Is there a secret to success? Have you ever asked yourself what to do to succeed? What is the difference between success and failure? There is no secret to success apart from the famous two words. Hard work. There is nothing that comes easy. Success is earned one day at a time. You wake up and as you walk out, you will be earning success or mediocrity or failure. Every decision lead to a different direction.
Notice, knowledge is not power. Its a potential power. Knowledge in itself is useless unless used or applied to achieve. Its what you do with what you know that determine your success. There are many geniuses out there who are very broke. They know a lot of stuff about a lot of things but still broke because they do not apply it. There is this philosophy I always like. ” There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path”.
Always ask yourself these three questions. 1. Am I doing what I have learned? Am I applying the knowledge that I have gained? You may actually know but you are not doing it.
2. Am doing it, but have I mastered it? Have I achieved or reached the best? have I managed to attain the best from what I do?
3. Can my results prove that I have mastered it? If you are a teacher, can the results prove you have mastered your teaching art? If you are a sales person, or doctor, or engineer, or sociologist or writer.. Can your results prove you have mastered the knowledge you have gained?
