The #1 Secret of Success
Today I am going to tell you the #1 secret to success in life, business & all that you do. If you apply this secret wholeheartedly I guarantee that your life will change for the better.
The #1 secret to being successful in everything that you do is not really a secret at all. In fact I'm betting that you already know this secret.
So the second biggest secret to being successful in life is to use the first secret, which isn't a secret at all.
And the secret is
Which all means the same thing.
Whenever possible help other people. Help without being asked and help without keeping a tally.
Let me just explain a bit further on that last bit. If you spend your life keeping count of who you helped and who has helped you & fretting about those you helped that haven't helped you back yet. Your head will hurt most of the time.
You must give without expecting anything in return. The benefit to you is in the giving. The best way to give is anonymously that way you have already let go because that person can't give back because they don't know who you are.
The most successful people in the world today know that what you give away comes back to you ten fold.
Zig Ziglar said, "You can get everything in life you want - if you help enough other people get what they want."
Brian Tracy put it this way 'Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, "What's in it for me?"'
So the question has to be are you giving? Are you giving what you want in return which boils down to the old phrase do unto others as you would be done unto yourself.
What this means is offering to help people, don't wait to be asked, people don't ask for what they want. Always be on the lookout for people you can help, for little things that you can do that might mean big things to others.
For example, when you're browsing your favorite forums if you see a question that you know the answer to, take a minute to answer it. That minute of your time may be worth hours & dollars to somebody else. So potentially two or three minutes of your time saves somebody else hours of time. Don't think somebody else will answer, be the one. Sow some seeds of goodness.
It's taken me a long long time to realise that the most successful people that I know are people that will help everyone and anyone. The people that when they see you struggling with something will jump in and do it for you. These same people, because they help everyone, also know everyone so they always know somebody that will help with your problem even if they can't fix it themselves. These people give without the expectation of reward. These people give without keeping a tally of favors given and returned. These people are happier because happiness comes from giving. When you make somebody else happy by helping with a problem you become happy. If you give happiness you get happiness.
And if we all did this the world would be a better place.
So your prescription to lifelong happiness & success is:-
Let me finish of this valuable lesson with a few more quotes from people who knew & used this secret
'The more credit you give away, the more will come back to you. The more you help others, the more they will want to help you.'
'The return we reap from generous actions is not always evident.'
'We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly, and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.'
'Getting people to like you is merely the other side of liking them.'
'You give before you get'

True Success is Generous
"Write checks on a regular basis to those who you want to bless, not those who you owe. Be generous. If you are thinking of one amount, raise it a bit. They'll be glad now. You'll be glad now and later." Chris Widener in the ABC's of Success.
The High Cost of Doing Nothing
Cost is sometimes a difficult term to define. Here, we are not simply discussing cost as it relates to selling price, but rather opportunity cost. The web site, "Mentors, Ventures and Plans" defines opportunity cost as "The loss of the next best alternative whenever a decision is made involving two or more options". "Investing in Options" defines it as "Choosing the best alternative means that you can't choose the next-best alternative. Opportunity cost is the next-best alternative that must be sacrificed in order to get something else you want. Opportunity cost can be thought of as the road not taken." Inactivity, or doing nothing, is usually the highest price paid and is often associated with great opportunity cost. Inaction is usually the worst decision one can make, made from a base of fear.
Success Intelligence : Attitudes to Success
For each of us, how successful we feel will depend upon our attitude toward success. Similarly, our motivation to achieve will be determined largely by our attitude. Equally the amount of success we achieve and the amount of success we do not achieve, will be determined in large parts by our attitude to success.

Become a Good Observer
We must never allow a day to pass without finding the answers to a list of important questions such as: What is going on in our industry? What new challenges are currently facing our government? Our community? Our neighborhood? What are the new breakthroughs, the new opportunities, the new tools and techniques that have recently come to light? Who are the new personalities that are influencing world and local opinion?
I confess, I love westerns. There is nothing like those "Showdown" scenes where the film is shot from down low and you see those boots moving slowly, step by step until they come to a stop just 100 feet from the other guy. Tumble weed blows by. The wind stirs the dust. The camera moves up and you see fingers twitching, getting ready to draw. You know that it is only a few moments until the good guy lets the bad guy have it and he'll be on his way to saving the day and setting the town free again. All that stands in his way is this one obstacle. But that obstacle must be put away.

Change Your Results by Changing Your Expectations
Our expectations get us into a lot of trouble and often cause a lot of stress. We expect our customers to always come back; we expect our boss to behave in a certain way; we expect the company we work for to take care of us; and we expect coworkers to be team players.

The Arenas of Success
"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Swotting for Success
Not so long ago, I impressed the daylights out of a friend, by showing him his face on my PC's screen. As I tapped away at the minus key, the picture slowly zoomed-out, revealing that it was a picture of the two of us, and it soon became clear where the picture was taken. As I continued to zoom out, more details came into view; the picture was actually a small part of a scanned photograph of the two of us sitting by my desk, watching the monitor. The photo was merely lying on the desk when the high-resolution picture was taken.
Many people talk or write about the science of success or the art of creating wealth. You don't want just the science. You don't want just the art. What you want is the technology. The how to.
