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.
Our attitude to success is part of our Success Intelligence. Recognising our attitudes and changing them can often be a way of achieving greater success. Recognising and understanding our attitudes toward success is a way of improving our Success Intelligence. It is also a way of helping to overcome some of the 'blocks' that inhibit our path to success.
Your Attitude to Success So What is Your Attitude to Success? To find out, read the following few paragraphs and select the one that most closely matches your own opinion, experience or viewpoint.
1) I will achieve success only if I really deserve it. In order to deserve my success I must make sure that I never make a mistake or slip up, I must always give that little bit extra, I must win the approval of other people, I must gain qualifications.
2) Success only comes through effort and hard work. If I am not achieving success it is because I am not putting in enough effort. More effort should bring more success. If my efforts are not working then I need to try even harder.
3) No pain, no gain. Success will only come after some amount of loss or pain on my part. Life is never easy and success can only be achieved if you are prepared to overcome obstacles, set backs and misfortune.
4) Success always has its price. There is no such thing as a free lunch and success can only be achieved by successful negotiation or dealing.
5) Success always involves some form of sacrifice or compromise. You have to be prepared to sacrifice your money or your time or your social life or your relationship or your health for the success you seek. Each level of success requires greater sacrifice.
6) Success means never accepting second best. Only perfection, quality and coming first can achieve success. Failure is not an option. I have to win or get things right first time.
7) Success is only real success if you achieve it yourself. Having the help of others is 'cheating' and diminishes the value of success. I must become self-sufficient to be successful in any meaningful way.
From these statements, you can see that different people have quite different attitudes to success. These attitudes not only determine the way(s) in which they approach success and achieving it but also the obstacles that block their path to success.

What Are the Nine Bodyparts of a Better Life?
Your Head, think about what you want and move towards it Everyday we have several opportunities to make a change for the better, the worse or just say the same and everytime we make a decision in one of these directions. At breakfast you could have oatmeal, or toast and jam, or you could have a coffee and a donut, your decision could often be better. When you get to work you could take the elevator only part way and climb a few flights in the very empty stairwell or you could choose to take an elevator to your floor. Don't feel too terribly bad about all of your decisions as you should know that not many others are making a great decision every time either. I ride my bike to work every day and in a building of 1000 people I am one of three bike riders. Look at these decisions one at a time and if it is a little easier carry around a notebook and write down things to do better. Try to resolve today to just do a few things alittle better than you did yesterday.

Five Principals for Prosperity
Many years ago, forty to be exact, I started my own business at the tender age of nineteen. The street markets in and around Manchester England was my happy hunting ground. Every day was an adventure and despite the weather and difficulties of getting a stall on the street market, life was always fun and enjoyable. There was always some comical incident, even when I had to stand in the pouring rain, with no customers in sight. And if there was no amusing event to focus on I created one and made other people laugh.

Informational Interviews: Tips for Success
As a work-life and career coach, I regularly work with people who are engaged in a full-blown career change. Typically, this process involves identifying potential "next careers" through a variety of methods, and then seriously exploring them. Informational interviews are a great way to do this, but many career seekers are reluctant to pursue these kinds of conversations because they aren't sure what to ask. Not sure what to ask the professional who's granted you an information interview? Here are some ideas to help you get the most out of your meeting. These questions are based on the assumption that you have sent your resume to this person ahead of the meeting so they have some idea of where you are coming from.
