Plus One

b2ap3_thumbnail_j0438759So many things that seem so complex and hard to deal with are really so simple. And, so it is with how you reach a level of success with which you are satisfied. Yes, there are lots of things you have to do and luck may play a part but there is one overriding thing that makes it all simple.

My purpose in this post is to identify that one thing for you and, thereby, help you to do the things you need to do to become the best “you” you can be. On the other hand, no matter what I write to try and inspire you it is absolutely up to you to make the necessary moves.

You, and you alone create your opportunities in life. You might disagree because of how luck may play a part, as I mentioned earlier. I remind you of the old adage: “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.” In other words, you work hard to create your opportunities and prepare yourself to take advantage of them and success will be yours.

However, for our purposes today, I’m going to dispense with what I consider the three keys to success beyond the idea behind that adage. You can read about those in another post. Today, it’s all about keeping it even more simple…Actually, simple and succinct!

Your success, in the final analysis, comes down to one thing: Plus One. Or, as a Japanese proverb puts it: Fall seven times, stand up eight.
