Why I Succeed.
The power of words
There is so much power in words. Words can make you happy or sad. They can calm you or make you angry. They can put you to sleep or give you a jolt of adrenaline and get you going. They can build great relationships but they can also tear them down. They can start wars and they can bring peace. I read a blog the other day that was beautifully written titled, Scribbler. In this post there was a statement that really hit me about how powerful words can be. The author talks about once again finding her love for writing. The statement is “So, if you ever decide to give up, or feel you’re not meant to write, please think about why you started writing.”
That one little word in that sentence, “WHY,” means so much. If you can do just one thing you will always be successful. That one thing is to remember that little word, only three letters. If you remember WHY then you can succeed at anything because you will never quit. Always remember why you started doing something that you love. Always remember why you fell in love with that certain person. In two weeks, my wife and I will celebrate our 27th anniversary. In 27 years we’ve had a great relationship but we have gone through a couple of storms. Whenever it got so bad that I thought we were at the end of our relationship, I would think back to WHY I fell in love with her. I would remember the first day that I ever saw her and the early days we spent together. I fell in love with her because of the person that she is. She is beautiful, intelligent, caring and funny. She always makes me and everyone around her laugh. Even if we weren’t getting along, she was still the same person I fell in love with and that was my WHY. It gave me the ability to fix our issues.
The only way to fail at anything is to quit. Yes, you will have small failures along the way in anything you do. That’s how you learn and your success is built on those small failures. If you quit and walk away, that is the ultimate failure. If things are getting tough and you’re seeing those small failures, always remember that little word, WHY. If you remember WHY you started, you will never quit. The WHY will bring you back from the brink, it will pick you up and get you started again.

I believe one of my greatest assets is that I will never quit. It doesn’t matter if I’m at the edge of physical exhaustion or mentally struggling with a dilemma. I will not quit. My reason is that my WHY is larger than the pain. It’s bigger than the problem. It’s more powerful than any reason to quit. It is what drives me and keeps me moving forward. I am successful because of my WHY.
What is your WHY? Is it large enough to keep you moving forward? If you have a big enough WHY then nothing is impossible. The universe wants you to succeed. It wants abundance for everyone in the world. It says so in Scripture. You have been given your WHY by God.
“For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.” – Matthew 13:12
On a daily basis you should think of your WHY. Let it pick you up when you’ve been knocked down, use it to keep fighting. Think about it constantly and keep moving forward.

I believe in the power of sharing. If I read a good blog that really speaks to me and I believe it will provide value to others, I will share it. I have linked four books that I believe have value. In order to change you, you first have to change the way you think. Leaders Are Readers!
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. A book that will change your life. It answers the question, Why do some people have everything and others struggle? The answer is simple, they know the secret. It has changed my life and can change yours.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This is an oldie but goodie that is full of relevant life lessons. It is a book that you hear speaker after speaker refer to. Successful people all have the same mentality and know you have to change the way you think to be successful. Only one percent of people set goals.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson. I found this to be a sophisticated yet easy read. This book goes along with a lot of what I write about in my blog. What other people think about you doesn’t matter so you should stop getting stressed out about it. Focus all your energy on what really matters which is you and your goals.
Extreme Ownership: How US Navy Seals LEAD and WIN by Jocko Willink. A book for everyone that I found basic and clear about leadership, teamwork, and having the right mindset. It is full of great stories with useful and applicable lessons. Own every decision you make.
I also highly recommend checking out the Audible Membership from Amazon. I can download great books on the Audible app and listen to them with my AirPods while I go on my morning walks. I use my AirPods every time I exercise. They don’t fall out and the sound is great. You can get any of these products simply by clicking on the links above.
