Being successful is simple. Get clear on the result you want. Stay focused on it. Take massive action toward the goal. And keep adjusting to stay on course until you get there.
Success isn't the hard part. The hard part is figuring out what you want in the first place—what you want bad enough to stick with it to the end.
A rare few are blessed with a preformed vision for their lives, but the rest of us have to create it. And it isn't going to find us, so we have to push ourselves to keep trying things until it's clear.
