The 2 factors why your success is predictable
Your success is predictable because it depends on 2 things. And you can control those 2 things.
(Because the Big Secret of success is not a Big Secret. It’s 2 secrets.)
It's always 2 things upon what your success depends on.
We tend to think that it's always one big factor. But no. Your success is ‘predictable and depends always on 2 things.
Let me explain…
Think about millenary Chinese philosophy, they knew it well with the Ying and Yang concept. So the same goes for success. It’s about two things.
And the 2 factors on what depends your success are:
- Working on your passion
- Building a well-organized mind
But realize that passion always comes first!
Whether you want to build a big company, build your own business, be healthy, or have a good career, concentrate on these 2 things: following your Passion + Building A Well Organized Mind.
Follow these 2 keys and your success is predictable. No doubt.
(And I insist: passion always comes first, because you can’t have a powerful mind if you don’t follow your dream. )
KEY #1 FOR PREDICTABLE SUCCESS:
FOLLOW YOUR PASSION
You succeed is predictable when you act like other successful people, over and over. But observe them closer, these people have passion for what they do.
So, decide exactly what passion to pursue in life. One for your business life and another for your personal life. But better combine them into one.
Here’s the deal…
Your success is predictable if you work on your passion.
So ask always if you are following your dream. This is the main difference between being rich or poor, being happy or unhappy.
And here you have two avoid this trap…
We have been always told to follow the Calvinist concept of having to suffer to succeed. But you don't have to suffer to succeed. You don't have to overwork to succeed. You don´t need to be overwhelmed.
No. This isn´t so.
You must first follow your dream and then cultivate your mind. Success is predictable if you only think, work, and live for your dream. And you´ll be happier so! I think it was the British novelist E M. Foster who wrote the happiness quote: “One person with passion is better than 40 persons without passion.”
So you could do the work of 40 persons!
Because think about it, if you have passion you will have the energy and self-discipline to do a lot of things, for example, planning.
If you follow your passion first you will be healthier, because…
…Think on people who smoke for example. Since they don't have a passion, they don't follow a dream. But if you had a dream you would think: "Ok, the 150 $ I spent every month on tobacco, I will save them." So with 65 years instead of cancer you will have 1 million $ if you invest them in an indexed fund.
And second, you will be happier doing what you love. And also enjoy the best peace of mind.
So do the following:
Take one minute, only one minute today, and think about what you want in life. Think on your big dream. Because this first factor, passion, will give you then the second one: a powerful mind which I will show you later.
So think about your dream. Once you follow it, you will have a special energy to achieve a lot of things. Once you know where you go and where you want to go, you can finish project after project.
For example, you would begin quitting interruptions. And instead of finishing a project in 10 days, you will finish in 2 days.
- You would also fall in love with exercise and get healthy.
- You would perhaps invest one hour a day thinking. Or perhaps three!
- You would avoid perfectionism that is killing your career.
- Or perhaps you would read 3 or 4 books per month!
- Or perhaps double your clients thanks to the new strategies you would design.
And then you would also have more extra time. You would work in the morning and go surfing in the evening. You could do whatever you want!
So realize that your success is predictable. You don't need a crystal ball. It's always about two things, the Ying and Yang of your life: passion and a well-organized mind.
And passion always comes first.
Is it possible to work on your dream?
Yes. You are already competent and with lots of possibilities, otherwise you wouldn’t read this. So forget what people say about a secure job. Overcome your fears and go for it!
Follow your passion first. I can’t emphasize it enough!
In case your fears are holding you back, here´s how to solve it:
Perhaps you aren’t working on what you love. Is there an elephant in the room? Then take a free evening and think if you are really following your passion.
Yes, there will be violent thoughts. Am I losing my time? But better crossing them once and forever.
Because then you will confront better other people attacking you saying you must work in a secure job. That “Passion… well, it’s for others.”
Realize that the main barrier to grow is people’s desire for security. They look for the money and so get stuck in a job they hate. But they will never develop their full of possibilities without working in what they love.

KEY #2 FOR PREDICTABLE SUCCESS:
A WELL-ORGANIZED MIND
Now it’s time for action and achieving your goals.
Because you need the Yin and Yang, not part of the method. And therefore you have to change completely your mind. Because look around you, people want to do great things, and many of them work hard…
But it’s not enough.
They must make the exact moves at the exact moment. And therefore they have to organize their mind.
It’s like being in shape. You must do your exercise. So if you want to be in shape mentally you also must work on your mind.
And therefore you have to... THINK MORE.
Thinking more is the key to fast self growth.
(And yes I know it´s obvious, but NOBODY DOES IT.)
Sho how to start?
For example, I isolate every day one hour for focused thinking. This is the ingredient that most people skip when trying to succeed. They work, they are good persons, but they never reach their big goal. Because they don’t prepare themselves well.
They do lots of unnecessary work, but not the key work.
But once you think more your moves will follow your priorities and will begin to have results.
It’s said that there’s no time to do everything. But you have time to do the exact things that will make you succeed... This is by the way the strategy of geniuses throughout history.
And leaving the rest undone!
It´s the fastest way to change your life and results.
And to build this strong mind here you have 10 keys. Anyone can help you:
9. Never look for excuses
A very good way to do the right things to succeed is never having excuses. If something went wrong it was your fault. No problem. You can cope with it. And you will learn.
But the best is that you will feel incredible because you will lower your hate. You won’t complain about others, which is the cause of so many diseases and conflicts between people.
So when looking for explanations do it smartly, simply accept it was your fault.
Believe me, once you say to yourself “Stop complaining! “ you will feel superb. You will brief breathe ten times better. And you see everything is in your hands. Everything! So you realize you have no limits.
10. Do 2 difficult things every day
If you need a roadmap to succeed hear you have it: do something hard every day. But I would suggest you do 2 hard things. So you will go double as far and achieve double as much as the big achievers.
As easy as that.
It’s easy, in the morning focus with 2 hours of hard work. And in the evening do your exercise, the second hard thing. Do this and you will go very far.
So analyze yourself now and see how many hard things you are avoiding. Then pick something out of your comfort and do it every day.
-5 Minutes of extra running...
-One minute speaking with someone you didn’t dare to speak...
-10 Minutes on a new project...
You know better than me.
(Bonus Key): Reward yourself
Reward yourself always!
If you need an extra plus to produce more, have a system of rewards. Small rewards for small tasks and bigger rewards for bigger projects.
- A pause plus a sandwich after working two hours concentrated…
- A trip to Australia after finishing your book…
- Choose your own…
You will achieve much more if a reward waits for you. Be creative. Design your own system.
- You can take a free evening after doing something hard…
- Or you will buy that shirt…
- Or you will read your favorite book...
You will do much more difficult things and focus much more if something nice waits for you.
It’s easy working harder if a prize waits for you. So it’s the best you can do to establish big habits. You will be incredibly productive so.
Follow these 10 keys and getting a strong mind will be a matter of time. This will give you all the self-discipline and energy you need.
But remember, the cause of underachievement is first not working on something that isn’t your passion. Then it will be easy building a strong mind. So first look for working on what you really love.
