Successfully Thinking…

Posted: July 26, 2011 in Helpful Professional Notes, Personal Thoughts and Notes, Uncategorized


It has been a long time since my last post. A lot of things surrounding this ideology have caught my attention and I thought it would be a great topic to write about. And for those of you who I haven’t met I hope this helps. Thanks in advance for reading.


So here I am, a 22 year old, college graduate with a degree and the real world is knocking at my door step. After looking back at the last year, I would’ve never thought I would be in the positions I am currently in right now, still searching for a job in a field that I spent 4 YEARS OF MY LIFE STUDYING FOR. I’ve talked to a lot of my friends and they are pretty much in the same boat that I am which made me think about how or why this happened. Since I’ve been little I was always lectured about staying out of trouble, getting good grades in school graduating from college and a landing that really nice job (the one with the big windows overlooking the city). It seemed like such a full proof plan to becoming a successful adult.

The key to being “successful” (in my ever so humble opinion) isn’t about WHAT you’ve done but more so about whom you’ve effected. The money, the cars, the clothes and other material things are good to have but they don’t quiet measure up to being able to positively affect an audience. People are the focus in my measurement because, unlike money, they never lose their value over time. But in order to make a successful difference YOU MUST LIVE, SPEAK, AND THINK SUCCESSFUL!!!!! This means that you must practice what you preach. I think people generally have the capacity to do well but their environment and other thing distract them from their purpose. I’ve actually come up with a list of might help you STAY FOCUSED.


  1. Find Your Passion – You must enjoy what you are doing to be successful at it. Once you find something you like DO IT to the best of your ability and don’t let anyone stop you.
  2. Success Is Never A One Man/Woman Show – You can’t succeed alone. Every story of success is a story of people working together, each contributing their own unique talents, skill sets and abilities. Do what you do best and place yourself around others that have similar ideas and successful actions. “Birds of the same feather flock together.”
  3. Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff – Things will go wrong, it’s apart of life. You can’t fail if you don’t quit. Find yet another way to make it work. Drive is one of the essential components of success.
  4. Think Successful and Actions Will Follow – If you don’t like where you are today, don’t expect tomorrow to be any different without change. Change your attitude, priorities, and activities and you will be surprised how it will affect your situation. Whatever you think about most of the time is what you create in your life. SO THINK SUCCESSFUL
  5. Get On Track – its one thing to know what you want you want to do but it’s a completely different thing to take steps toward it. If you know what you want to do find out how to get there because without a path you’ll get lost.
  6. You Give In Order To Receive – If you want help, be helpful. If you want honest relationships, be truthful. If you want success, help others get what they want. If you want love, be loving. “The Golden Rule” never fails.
  7. It’s Your Life So Live It – Life “really” is like a movie. You write the script. You’re the star, director and critic. And like a movie, it ends. What’s important in life is not just the journey, but the “quality” of the journey. That’s why it’s important to make “every” day the best it can be, because “now” is all you have.

“”Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key of success if you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” Herman Cain
