Three Steps to Success

b2ap3_thumbnail_00438886Simplicity seems to help in so many things.  I think most of us would agree that the simpler a concept the more easily it is digested and transformed into some kind of meaningful action.  For me, that certainly is the case when it comes to trying to define the pathway to greater success in life.

So, with simplicity in mind, here’s the first step to your success journey.  You must have the necessary knowledge.  If you don’t know what to do, how can you expect to successfully do it?  It’s impossible…so, your first step to success has to be to learn all you can about what it is you want to accomplish.

With your base of knowledge in place, your next step has to be learning all you can about how to accomplish what it is that you want.  In this case, how is synonymous with skill.  You can be aware of all there is to know but if you don’t know how to apply it, the knowledge is pointless.  Knowledge without action is nothing more than being ignorant.

Finally, with knowledge and skills as your foundation, comes the biggest challenge to achieving success.  This third step, if not taken, will nullify all that has gone before it.  In the final analysis, it’s the amount of effort you put forth in applying your knowledge and skills toward success.

Success can be defined as continuously putting forth the effort to apply your knowledge and skills in a way that gets you what you truly want out of life. Simple…three steps.
