The principles of success are quite easy to grasp, but implementing them on a daily basis can be a challenge even for the most determined individual. By studying the foundational level of success, we develop the habits necessary to make success a natural instinct.
Resisting change is completely understandable and human. But in order achieve levels of success we've never reached before, we must do things that we've never done before. Reevaluating our own identity and personality in relation to our ultimate goals, not in relation to our past, is the first step to getting results that were previously unimaginable.
Setting clear goals is not enough. While goal-setting is an important part of getting what we want, most of us aren't sure what we want and don't have realistic expectations about what is possible. In fact, our goals can actually hold us back and prevent us from reaching our full potential.
The biggest results occur when we have clearly defined the role our past has played in our life and we have separated it from our current self, so that it doesn't dictate our actions today. This allows us to leave the past-present connection behind and concentrate on the present-future connection instead, which opens up the possibility of becoming the person who has the things we want to have.
