Stepping-stone to Success

b2ap3_thumbnail_00438886_20130818-153132_1Okay…you might want to argue there is more than one stepping-stone to success.  And, you’d be right.  However, I would contend none of the other stepping-stones have any importance until you start firmly from the very first one.

It’s like the old adage:  “A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.”  The thought in that statement is huge! It’s basically saying none of the other steps are remotely relevant or can be taken without taking that first step.

So, what’s my ultimate point, here?  Well, your success is directly dependent on you putting the most important stepping-stone in place and launching from there to the next and the next, etc.  Interestingly, the first stepping-stone to success is the same regardless of the pursuit or who is doing the pursuing.

All legitimate success in this world is derived from people persistently doing the right thing.  There, my friends, is the all-important first stepping-stone to success!

If you will always choose to do the right thing, you will inevitably, ultimately succeed.  If you try to shortcut your way to success by cheating, only here and there even, you will be found out and your stepping-stones will become so slippery you will absolutely fall off track.  You will end up in the bog of mediocrity, at best, or the quicksand of total failure.

In everything that you do…do the right thing…and, success will only be  a stone’s throw away.
