14 Principles You Must Master to Become Successful

Written by Anthony Moore

“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.” -Jim Rohn

Success isn’t complicated.

But like financially illiterate individuals can’t understand how to become wealthy, or health-illiterate individuals can’t understand how to lose weight, success can look impossible to achieve.

But success — true, lasting success — is within your grasp. It is possible. It is available, to every person, at this moment.

Right now, you can make a decision to become a student of success. You can start on a journey that will take you to a future where everything you want is possible.

The principles to get there aren’t easy, but they are simple.

If you want to achieve true, lasting success in your life — the kind of success that will be the foundation for your life’s legacy — you need to master these 14 principles first.

1. Most People Will Never Be Successful.

“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.” -Jim Rohn

Sadly, although anyone can choose to become successful, most people never will.

This is because when it comes down to the final word, most people will choose comfort over growth. Ultimately, they see the price for true success and say, “no thanks.”

This is one of the most important characteristics of the “mediocre majority” — they are unwilling to trade comfort and stability for the pain of wild growth.

Success costs you.

To reach higher function, you must be willing to become a child again, to learn and grow in new avenues. You must constantly be willing to become a small fish in a big pond again.

Most people simply aren’t willing.

The simple truth is, everyone could become healthy, happy, and fulfilled, starting right now, as you’re reading this. It is a choice that is available at all times. Yet, most people never take it.

In the words of Warren Buffet: “That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”

The choice to become 100% financially independent is available now.

The choice to have extremely rewarding and intimate relationships with your friends and family is available now.

The choice to become fit, active, and healthy is available now.

The choice to experience intense and complete emotional healing is available now.

But most people won’t take it.

Each of these avenues has a high cost. They require you to change your life. To shed old habits and adopt new ones. To sever ties with toxic individuals. To admit “I don’t know.

Benjamin Hardy put it this way: “Anything is possible if you are willing to pay the price.”

Many people make these decisions every day, and change the trajectory of their lives, and their family’s lives, forever.

But many, many more people never make this choice.

They continue to live in ordinary, average lives, just like everyone else around them.

And in the words of Seth Godin:

“Is there a difference between ‘average’ and ‘mediocre?’ Not so much.”

2. Evolving is Painful. That’s Why Most People Don’t Do It.

“Arrogant or critical people are often people with low self-esteem who are afraid of taking risks. That’s because if you learn something new, then you are required to make mistakes in order to fully understand what you have learned.” -Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad

Evolving is painful.

Becoming a better version of yourself requires time, energy, humility, and study.

Evolving means constantly becoming a child again. You must become a young, teachable student again, over and over.

You must constantly be admitting, “I don’t know.”

There is so much you don’t know that will be revealed to you over the course of your studies and self-discovery. And the most helpful way to “grease the wheels” of this journey is to remain humble and open to correction and teaching.

The worst thing you can do is insist you already know everything.

Michelin-star chef Gordon Ramsay had a show called Kitchen Nightmares where he would audit a struggling restaurant’s food processes.

There was a particular episode where a failing restaurant was led by a stubborn and arrogant chef who refused to change his menu or learn new tricks.

Ramsey came in and began cooking marvelous new dishes for the restaurant. He prepared a particular sea bass dish for the owners, which they loved.

However, the chef refused to try the dish. “I already know what sea bass tastes like,” he argued dismissively. “I’ve been cooking for 38 years.

Instead of learning a free, valuable lesson from a world-class expert, this man chose pride over growth.

This is how most people react to criticism — defensiveness and immaturity.

Instead of humbly admitting they don’t know everything and gratefully accepting wisdom and teaching from experts, they choose pride and stagnation over humility and massive growth.

Evolving is painful. Most people simply choose not to do it.

But once you decide to become someone who is open to correction and teaching, you become an unstoppable force.

If you shift your mindset into being an open, thirsty mind that is hungry for knowledge (and humble enough to accept correction), you’ll become more capable than 90% of the population to achieve massive success.

“Every next level of your life will demand a different you.”-Leonardo DiCaprio

What got you here won’t get you there.

Mastering success means mastering the art of constantly becoming a better version of yourself.

This is done through slow, deliberate choices, and is sped-up exponentially through being humble enough to accept correction and teaching.

3. The Obstacle is the Way.

“Within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition.” -Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle is the Way

The ancient stoic philosophers like Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Epictetus all ascribed to learning how to turn challenges into triumphs.

It was Aurelius, emperor of Rome who first penned the thought, “the obstacle is the way.”

Aurelius had to deal with problems you and I don’t typically face — assassination attempts, betrayals by his top advisors, and the incessant efforts of his enemies to overthrow Rome.

What he learned through all of this was not to run from problems; in fact, they are exactly where you should go.

It is through solving difficult problems and overcoming frustration and fear that allows you to develop patience, poise, and peace in the most dire of circumstances.

The reason so many NFL teams, CEO’s, and personal development coaches have been studying the philosophy of Stoicism in recent years is because solving these obstacles directly (instead of running away) is exactly how to become a stronger, faster, smarter, and more poised person.

Becoming successful often means an entire transformation in many parts of your life. The relationships, finances, health, and personal habits of successful people often look radically different the the average person’s.

This change is difficult. Evolving is painful, so most people don’t do it.

But for those who truly desire to become successful, the obstacle — fear of rejection, frustration, setbacks, anger, impatience…

This is exactly where you need to focus your efforts.

4. Growth and Comfort Cannot Co-Exist.

“You can either step forward into growth, or backwards into security.” -Abraham Maslow

Growth means learning. It means working, doing, creating, resisting, failing.

Comfort means safety. It means stability, protection, pleasure, and feeling good.

Growth cannot happen as long as you choose comfort over learning. Growth and evolution are incubated in pain and discomfort.

Most people choose comfort over pain, and so remain in average, mediocre lives.

If you want to succeed and experience true, lasting success, you need to know that all the necessary growth and evolution you must experience cannot happen while you’re comfortable.

There is so much you need to know and need to learn. The path to success is paved with obstacles that can only be overcome by reading books, gaining mentors, failing and trying again, and learning from your mistakes.

These cannot happen if you continue to mindless numb yourself through TV and drugs, sleep in longer than you should, or cling to what is “easy” instead of what is “challenging.”

Growth and comfort cannot co-exist.

If you want to become a new, better, healthier, richer, stronger, smarter person, it cannot be achieved while you choose comfort over growth.

5. Becoming Extraordinary Means Giving Up a “Normal” Life.

“If you want to live an exceptional and extraordinary life, you have to give up many of the things that are part of a normal one.” -Srinivas Rao

If you want to experience true success and become extraordinary, it means you must give up many parts of a “normal” life.

Nowadays, “normal” means a lot of things.

“Normal” means buying things you don’t need to impress people you don’t like with money you don’t have.

“Normal” means binge-eating an entire pizza while binge-watching an entire season of a TV show.

“Normal” means sleeping in as late as you can. It means doing what others tell you to do. It means following conventional advice, never leaving the safety of the herd.

Normal is “the way things have always been done.”

But “extraordinary” is something quite different.

If you want to live an extraordinary life, that means you’ll have to start acting very differently from how everyone else is.

One of the most basic tenets of becoming extraordinary is simply having the courage to go against the tide.

In the words of Benjamin P. Hardy“Ordinary people seek entertainment. Extraordinary people seek education and learning.”

Extraordinary means buying books, online courses, and conference memberships instead of buying alcohol, doodads, and luxuries you don’t even need.

Extraordinary means saying “no” to merely good opportunities and waiting for the truly great ones.

Extraordinary means investing your money in assets, not liabilities. The wealthy don’t become wealthy by sitting on their hands — they spend enormous amounts of time becoming extremely financially literate and make their money work for them.

Extraordinary means becoming fit and healthy so your body and mind are able to function at extremely high levels so you can produce work that can truly change the world.

Extraordinary means devoting the majority of your time learning and investing in personal development.

Most people don’t prioritize the characteristics of the extraordinary lifestyle. Being extraordinary means doing things others won’t.

“Would you be as successful if you followed all the rules and always behaved and never took chances? No, you’d be just like everyone else, scared about failing and worried about being liked.” -Tim Grover, personal trainer of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant

6. Willpower Doesn’t Work.

“Most people approach goals and personal improvement the hard way. Rather than changing their environment, they strive to overcome their current environment.” –Benjamin P. Hardy

Most people are terrible at achieving goals.

As much at 92% of people give up on their New Year’s resolutions just a few weeks into January.

When asked, most overweight and broke people declare they would like to become fit and financially successful.

But they continue in their unhealthy habits and foolish financial decisions.

Most people are terrible at achieving goals because they rely on willpower to do so.

A simple secret about success is that willpower doesn’t work.

Commitment does.

According to the latest psychological research, your willpower is like a muscle. The more you use it, the more tired it gets. Essentially, willpower is a finite resource that becomes depleted with use.

As a result, your willpower is nearly gone by the end of your long, strenuous days. Suddenly, you don’t even stand a chance resisting that junk food and watching TV.

Commitment is something entirely different. Commitment goes above and beyond your energy, stamina, or how you feel, even after an extremely strenuous day.

If you’re truly committed to something, in your mind, it’s as though you’ve already succeeded. All doubt and disbelief are gone.

“When you commit to an enormous goal that far exceeds your current capability, willpower won’t solve your problem. Rather, you’ll need a new environment that organically generates your goals — a context that forces you to become more than you currently are. Once you design the right conditions, your desired behavior naturally follows.” -Benjamin Hardy

As long as you rely on willpower alone to accomplish your goals, you will never succeed on truly enormous levels.

It is only through an unwavering commitment to a new lifestyle that truly allows you to accomplish extraordinary things.

What if “poverty”…. is all in your head?

7. Consistency Beats Intensity.

“Long-term consistency beats short-term intensity.” -Bruce Lee

In 1974, boxer Muhammad Ali was scheduled to fight George Foreman. Foreman was considered by many observers to be the favored to win the fight due to his superior punching power. He was stronger and more experienced than Ali.

Rather than try to match Foreman at his own game, Ali adopted a different tactic, which became famous in their “Rumble in the Jungle” fight. It was called the “rope a dope” technique.

During the fight, Ali put himself in a protected stance, put his back against the ropes of the ring, and let Foreman punch him relentlessly.

At the time some observers thought that Ali was being horribly beaten and worried that they might see him get killed in the ring.

But the ropes on Ali’s back allowed him to absorb the punches without taking a lot of damage. While Foreman exhausted himself fruitlessly attacking Ali, Ali was waiting for the moment to strike.

At the end of the 8th round, Ali knocked out Foreman and won.

Often, the stronger and faster opponent gets beaten by a weaker, slower adversary.


It’s because in the long run, it’s not about intensity — it’s about consistency.

This is the essence of Angela Duckworth’s groundbreaking book, Grit: The Power of Passion and PerseveranceIn short, it is not the individual with the greatest starting position or motivation that usually wins — it’s the person who has the most “grit.” The person who can last the longest.

The individual who is able to make a stronger commitment to maintaining their course despite whatever happens

This is the person who will reach their goal.

Will Smith, critically acclaimed actor and producer, was once asked about his motivation and how he got to become to successful.

“The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill,” he explained.

“I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories.

But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die.”

Success is all about consistency.

It’s not about never falling down — it’s about getting up every time you fall down.

“You will fall. And when you fall, the winner always gets up, and the loser stays down.”
-Arnold Schwarzenegger

Most people rely on short, intense bursts of inspiration and motivation in their attempts to be successful. Maybe they read an inspiring weight-loss story, or just watched Gladiator.

After this inspiration, they act like a crazy person — they work tirelessly, day and night. They go to the gym 6 days in a row for two weeks, they write 5,000 words for their book, they throw out every piece of junk food they have in their house.

But what usually happens to these people?

The same fate that befalls nearly 92% of individuals who make New Year’s Resolutions: they give up a couple weeks later.

Enthusiasm is common.

Endurance is rare.

“Fall seven, rise eight.” -Ancient Japanese Proverb

8. Success Means Choosing Education Over Entertainment.

“Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” -Hal Elrod, The Miracle Morning

Choosing to learn instead of being entertained is a trademark characteristic of successful people.

Mastering success means learning to love being a small fish in a big pond. Most people don’t want to admit those three little words…“I don’t know.” Instead of choosing to learn, they reject the opportunity and instead go back to entertaining themselves.

But achieving your ultimate life requires a tremendous deal of learning. It requires an intense dedication to gaining knowledge, learning important lessons, and receiving teachings that add to your wisdom, experience, and education.

Some of the greatest and most successful minds of our time are also voracious readers. They make time for their education.

Warren Buffet (worth $74.4 billion) advocates to read hundreds of pages a day.

Mark Cuban (worth $3.4 billion) dedicates three hours a day to reading.

Bill Gates (worth $90.2 billion) reads 50 books a year, nearly a book a week.

Elon Musk (worth $15.2 billion) is an avid reader that claims he learned to build rockets by reading books.

The most successful people of the world don’t spend their precious and most potent time binge-watching TV, playing excessive video games, or partying into drunken oblivion.

The extraordinary people of this world dedicate massive amounts of time and money into investing in themselves.

This is done through reading books and blogs, attending conferences, seminars, webinars, and trainings, participating in “Mastermind groups,” collaborating with others, and working with several mentors.

Successful people choose education over entertainment.

Odds are, your life’s greatest work requires you to close the wide gap between what you know and what you don’t.

In the words of Benjamin Foley, “The goal of life is not to relax on the beach, sipping mojitos all day. The purpose is to find something you love that also adds value to the world.”

If you want to find that purpose, and actually start creating and doing work that impacts the loves of thousands…

You’ll need to get educated.

If you want to be extraordinary and successful, choose education and learning over entertainment.

9. Everyone’s First Draft Sucks.

“The first draft of anything is shit.” -Ernest Hemingway

I have a friend who is writing a novel.

It’s his first novel, and he works very hard on it. In fact, he’s been working on it for years. Sometimes I check in with him to see how it’s going. It’s usually going “alright.”

Here’s the thing he doesn’t understand:

His first book probably won’t be that good.

And that’s OK. His second and third books will probably be better.

But he’ll never know if he never publishes the first one.

I’ve written 2 eBooks so far. The first one sold exactly zero copies. The second one sold about 20 copies.

I imagine my next one will sell a little more. Same goes for the one after that.

My first 2 eBooks weren’t that great. I put a lot of work into them — a lot. But I also clicked “publish.” Most people never do that. They spend years building this intricate, almost-perfect creation that’s never quite “done.”

They don’t realize they’re only prolonging their own success.

Most people want to be wildly successful on the first try. But this almost never happens.

Everyone’s first draft isn’t that good. That’s because we haven’t learned what “great” is yet. We are not able to produce great work without first producing a lot of crap.

In the words of renowned radio host Ira Glass:

“All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not.

A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work.

It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions.”

My friend would do far better for himself if he simply published his book, accepted some criticisms and the fact that he didn’t immediately make the New York Times Best Seller list…and start on his second book.

It will probably do better than his first book did. Same goes for his 3rd and 4th books.

Success isn’t about creating; it’s is about consistently practicing quality actions. Every day. Over and over. Unsexy, boring work.

Michael Jordan didn’t become great while on the court of his widely-publicized games. And Michael Phelps didn’t become the most decorated Olympian of all time solely through his widely-publicized Olympic appearances.

These individuals became great alone, in practice, every day, for years. Over, and over, and over.

“Champions aren’y made in the ring. They are merely recognized there.” -Joe Frazier

Everyone’s first draft sucks.

Get over it, publish it, and try again. Your second draft will be better.

10. How You Do Anything is How You Do Everything

I used to juggle being an entrepreneur on the side while working full-time.

I used to believe that even if I slacked off all day at work — scraping by, just doing the minimum to not get fired — I could switch gears from the lazy, unmotivated worker I was to a disciplined, creative entrepreneur when I got home.

But that never worked.

How you do one thing is how you do everything. If you spend all day being bored, lazy, and irresponsible, you can’t simply “flip a switch” and become a truly responsible, disciplined, hard worker while at home, in your relationships, your finances, or your health.

Many people think they can compartmentalize their discipline and effort — working hard in some areas but not in others — but you can’t.

When one area of your life is suffering, all the other parts suffer. Conversely, when you develop one part of your life, all the other parts benefit too.

Are laziness, irresponsibility, and avoidance normal parts of your day? Even if they’re in areas you don’t deem worthy of your efforts — are they there?

If they are, they need to be changed. The whole cannot become healthy if there are still toxic areas that remain unaddressed.

Like a broken ankle or a dislocated shoulder, the entire body will suffer if even one part remains broken.

11. You Can Become Anything If You’re Willing to Pay the Price.

“How much you improve is up to you.” -Anders Ericcson, Peak: Secrets From the New Science of Expertise

In the words of Benjamin P. Hardy:

“You can learn, have, or be anything if you are willing to pay the price.

You can be a millionaire in not a long period of time.

You could be an established expert on any topic.

You could be a successful business owner.

You could have deep spiritual understanding.

You could do an Iron Man triathlon.

You could be an empathetic, caring, and loving person.

You could have beautiful and meaningful relationships with your romantic partner, business colleagues, mentors, and other people who inspire you.

You could be the person you know within yourself you can be.

You can live the life you know within yourself you are meant to live.

But you have to pay the price.”

The price for being extraordinary is a high one. It means severing ties with toxic individuals. It often means waking up earlier, eating healthier, and saying “no” to things you used to say yes to.

The truth is, there are probably dozens of daily activities you do that don’t serve you. They only serve to distract you, bring you down, or keep you “busy.”

Paying the price of success means changing these behaviors. The choice to become extraordinary is not unlike the addict who knows he has to quit to survive; do you keep doing the same things, or are you willing to change everything to transform?

For many people, the answer is no. They see the price tag for a truly successful life, and suddenly they’re hesitant and reluctant.

But if the prospect of the reward — becoming extraordinary and truly successful — is worth it to you…

Then you need to start paying the price.

When you’re with your loved ones, do you look at your smartphone or pay the price?

When you have 5 extra minutes, do you “zone out” or do you pay the price?

When you have a choice between the easy and comfortable path or the difficult and challenging path, do you pay the price?

When your alarm goes off in the morning, do you just press “snooze” or do you pay the price?

You can have anything you want. But this success requires a heavy price.

Are you willing to pay?

12. Success is a Lonely Road.

“The more bold you are, the more rejection you’ll experience.” -Todd Brison,

The thing about becoming truly successful is that most people never do it.

The world is full of members of the “mediocre majority.” Most people will never be successful. They may try, or claim they want to, but in reality, it never happens.

This reality becomes all the more keen for the few individuals who actually choose to become truly successful and extraordinary.

It’s lonely. There’s not a lot of company.

Only those who have reached the top of the mountain know how few tracks are up there.

If you want to be truly successful, you need to understand this road will probably be very lonely, for a time.

Even the most well-intentioned people around you may begin to disparage and discourage you from leaving the safety of the herd. Family, friends, and loved ones all may not understand your choice to go on a new path.

In some cases, they may even become resentful and hurtful.

This is because since many people never reach their dreams, they don’t want others to reach theirs. In order to prevent the reality that you achieved your goals while they did not, they strive to keep you in the herd, or ostracize you when you leave.

If you want to reach new heights and achieve success unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before, it will likely involve loneliness, rejection, and ostracism.

13. If It’s Not a “Hell Yes!” It’s a No.

When my wife and I were still living in San Diego, I was extremely busy. I had written an eBook, started a podcast, gotten a craft beer certification, and read 30 books, all while in full-time grad school and full-time work.

When we moved to South Korea, our lives became extremely simple. And I began saying “no” to almost everything.

Some of these opportunities included:

  • Overtime at work
  • High-paying private tutoring
  • Youth basketball coach
  • Remote data administrator
  • Podcast co-founder

I said no to all of them.

That’s because I realized they were all “good” opportunities, but not “great” ones.

None of these opportunities made me think, “Hell yes!”

From now on, if any opportunity doesn’t make you say, “Hell yes!” you must say no.

Most people are stuck in obligations they don’t even like, simply because they didn’t have the courage to say no. As a result, their days are spent doing things they don’t like that suck precious time and energy that could be spent on building their legacy.

You need to say “no” more.

In the words of Warren Buffet:

“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”

When you say yes to the “kinda-good” opportunities — the ones that make you say things like, “Sure, that could be fun,” or “Alright, that sounds interesting” — you forfeit your chance to say yes to amazing opportunities.

Your life’s legacy requires your best work, and a lot of time to do it.

You can’t create a legacy if you’re always distracted with good-not-great opportunities, even if you’re making a few extra bucks.

14. Acting “As If” Becomes Acting “As Is.”

“Act as if you are already the healthiest person you can be. Do not wait until you feel better about yourself or until you believe you have what it takes. As if you are self-actualized and your beliefs will follow suit. Act while you fear rather than waiting until you feel unafraid.” -David Richo, How To Be an Adult

One of the most important factors about becoming successful is self-belief. In other words, your level of how successful you will be is generally accurate.

This sentiment has been echoed throughout history.

Said Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”

In a letter to a struggling friend, Bruce Lee said, “What you habitually think largely determines what you will ultimately become.”

Do you believe you can win? Can you envision yourself with your goals completed? Can you see yourself with everything you’ve ever wanted?

If you can’t, you’ll almost certainly never.

What you focus on, expands. This is why most critical, judgmental, and negative people invariably have negative, toxic lives.

If all you focus on is how much of a victim you are, you’ll always be a victim. If all you can see is how unfair your circumstances are, you’ll be doomed to stay in your stagnation.

Winners become winners by acting like one.

Acting “as if” can be a playful game, where you toy with the balance of shedding off who you were or are, and instead don the costume of who you want to be. It may sound silly, but this is a powerful exercise for your mind.

Robert Kiyosaki, author of the acclaimed finance book Rich Dad Poor Dad, recounted a time when he had lost a large amount of money, leaving he and his wife broke.

I’m a rich man,” he would tell himself. “And rich men don’t do that.”

Even though he had literally lost all his money, he still acted like a rich man. He still donned the “costume” of a wealthy, financially secure individual, and so that’s what he became.

If you’re rich, you don’t make bad investments or foolish financial decisions.

So act like you’re rich.

If you’re a healthy, fit individual, you don’t eat garbage. If you’re a loving, caring husband, you love and serve your wife. That’s just what you do.

Even if you’re not there yet, don the costume. Acting “as if” will eventually become acting “as is.” This is how people become truly successful, especially if they or no one else around them has ever done so — they imagine themselves as that person. Then they act accordingly.

And in the words of Paulo Coelho:

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

If you’re broke, overweight, unhappy, or stuck, act as if you’re not. Act as if you’re a rich, fit, content individual with a purpose.

You’ll become that person.

But you have to believe it.

“One will never get more than he thinks he can get.” -Bruce Lee

In Conclusion

“Where you are is a result of who you were, but where you end up depends entirely on who you choose to be from this moment forward.” -Hal Elrod

Mastering success isn’t easy, but it’s simple.

Success isn’t mysterious. It’s not a magical puzzle that only a select few have the ability to solve.

It’s available right now.

But mastering success requires you to become a more open-minded and humble learner than you ever have been before.

You must learn from the experts. You must admit you don’t know.

You must recognize reaching new heights requires an entirely different you.

This is good news. We were not meant to stagnate or remain in comfort for long. As anyone who has chosen comfort over growth for too long knows, that very comfort sours and becomes a prison of fear, shame, and isolation.

The real, fulfilling life is waiting for you on the battlefield.

It’s not easy out there. But the rules are simple.

8 Common traits of the worlds most successful people – it takes 8 to be great

 🧨 “Wealth and Abundance” Auto-Hypnosis Program– Must see👈🏻 Click for More Info

Whilst each persons path to success is different, the world’s most successful people share some distinct common traits.

In his book, “The 8 Traits Successful People Have in Common,” author Richard St. John conducted intensive interviews with more than 500 highly successful people, from Bill Gates to Martha Stewart and collated the data to see if any common traits existed.

He found all those interviewed shared 8 traits, which he calls the “8 to be great” because “they’re the foundation for success and greatness in any field.”

1.Passion – they do it for the love

They didn’t start their field to make a quick buck, they started and continue to work because they genuinely enjoy, believe and love what they do.

It makes sense that business phycology today shows the most successful business marketing is the most authentic – “people don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it – Simon Sinek”

2. Failure is an art

Failure is a means to develop and nothing less. When hit with a curveball these people use it as a stepping stone to learn and become even better.

“Failure can be heartbreaking, and when it happens you have a choice,” St. John writes. “You can let it be your school or your funeral.”

The right choice, of course, is using failure as a stepping stone and building off it. Once you do, St. John says it’s all about relentlessly moving forward.

3. A niche

To be successful, it’s important to specialize in a certain area and build your expertise – become indispensable to your industry.

“Success means narrowing down and focusing on one thing, not being scattered all over the map,” St. John writes.

4. They habitually stretch their comfort zones

Richard Branson during his interview told St. John, “I think whatever you’re doing in life just push yourself to the limits.”

You must push through shyness, doubts, and fear, St. John writes. Remember if it scares you, that’s a good thing, you are actively challenging yourself and developing as a result.

5. They never stop thinking of new ideas

“Ideas light the way to success,” St. John writes. This is true across the board – ideas form innovation – innovation is the difference between success and market dominator.

The key here is creativity. St. John lists eight ways to come up with big ideas:

1. Have a problem, because big ideas come from everyday problems.

2. Be observant: Eye-Q can be more important than IQ.

3. Listen: Ears are antennas for ideas.

4. Asking questions leads to ideas.

5. Borrow an idea, and build it into a new idea.

6. Make connections: Take one thing and connect it to another.

7. Make mistakes: Mistakes and failures lead to great ideas.

8. Write your ideas down.

6. They seek to continually learn

Self development plays an integral role in these leaders lives. They are never too old or wise to be students – this eagerness to learn keeps them at the forefront of trends, innovation and allows them to be reactive.

Continuous learning means becoming good at something, then getting better, and then seeking to be our absolute best, St. John writes.

7. They provide value to others

It’s important to ask yourself who you serve

Once you’ve determined who you serve, you need to figure out what unique value you can offer. Martha Stewart, for example, learned to be a master homemaker, and “her expertise had high value for millions of women clamoring for tips to make a better home,” he writes.

According to St. John, shift your focus off of yourself and onto the people you serve, to set yourself up for financial success: Do what you love. Serve others what they love. Get money in return.

8. They work hard and play hard

All of those interviewed admitted to working very long hours, on average each person was working up to 14 hour days. Oprah Winfrey, for example, told St. John that she “would never see daylight.”

Whilst hard work is necessary, it’s also important to have fun whilst you work – this allows you to avoid “burnout”. St John writes that successful people aren’t workaholics; they’re “workafrolics” because they have fun with their careers.

He recommends having an 80/20 split – meaning 80% of your work should be enjoyable and the remaining 20% should consist of the serious, not-so-fun stuff.

Japanese Breakfast Tonic Melts 34 lbs in 28 Days – How I Get Control of My Weight Using This Weird Tonic Drink. Find out how a potent Japanese Tonic can help you lose weight (Drink daily before 10am).

There’s a new powerful fat loss solution that’s helping men and women effortlessly drop 1lb of belly fat every 24 hours.

That’s not an exaggeration.

A maverick Japanese doctor recently leaked the secret formula of an ancient Japanese Tonic that targets the root cause of deep belly fat and activates a powerful, little-known fat-burning hormone inside you…that MELTS away all your stubborn body fat.

It’s a powerful Japanese herb mix that’s been unknown to the Western public since it was discovered…

Mom of 3 Susan Atlee used it to lose 33lbs in 28 days after she suffered a heart attack from standing up too fast.

>> The Ancient Japanese Tonic That Melts 1lb Fat Every 24 Hours

This tonic comes from a remote island in Japan where obesity and diabetes type 2 are unheard of. 

And where men and women have the longest life expectancy in the world. 

It’s so powerful because it targets the single root cause of belly fat. 🔥🔥🔥

Those who’ve used it are already seeing incredible results WITHOUT adding in exercise or changing their diet. 

She’s still dropping weight…

👓12 Proven Ways To Increase Your Intellectual Wellness

45 yr old Mom of 3 Susan Atlee used this solution to drop 33lbs in 28 days without doing any additional exercise or dieting.

==> 🚨🚨🚨 The Potent Japanese Tonic That Burns 1lb of Fat Daily

Rina lost 38lbs in 5 weeks without exercising at all due to her whiplash from a car accident.

Firefighter Mike Banner’s 45-year-old sister, Susan, lost 54 pounds in only 7 weeks with no exercise due to osteoarthritis in her damaged knee.

Taylor had high blood pressure and was getting pains in her knees. She lost 31 lbs in a month and a half and couldn’t be happier. 

This might sound crazy but they all reported being able to see and feel their fat melt off their belly within the first 24 hour

And the best part is as long as you drink this Japanese mix every morning, you’ll also experience these incredible results too!

 A Japanese herb mix was leaked that’s stunned scientists due to how fast it melts excess fat. 

🚀🚀🚀How fast? 1lb of fat per day to be exact.

The caveat…You have to take it BEFORE 10am every day.

==> The Powerful Japanese Herb Mix That Melts 1lb of Fat Daily ☢☢☢

By doing so your body will activate a powerful fat-burning hormone called adiponectin, which when released…Forces fat cells to melt rapidly while releasing harmful toxins from your gut…and shrinking your belly in less than 24 hours!

People are losing 30+ lbs of fat in a month without changing their diet and workout routine…They’re simply drinking these herbs before 10am.

==> Japanese Plant Mix Melts 1lb of Fat Daily 👌

This may seem new to you, but there’s a hormone called C-Reactive Protein, that when elevated, is known to cause chronic inflammation and rapid fat storage. 

And even worse, when left untreated this hormone WILL wreak havoc on your body making it nearly impossible to lose weight no matter how much you exercise and eat healthily.

Thankfully, there’s a simple and quick strategy to shut it down.

And the best part is it’ll only take 24 hours before you’ve lost your first pound of belly fat.

✨💥==>The Fastest Way to Shut Down The Most Dangerous Fat-Storing Protein (and Start Burning Fat again)

PS. Why would you put up with this?

This newly discovered hidden cause of belly fat is silently destroying your digestive system, inflaming your arteries, joints and even your brain…

It’s not your fault if you have high levels of CRP.

But you do have to act urgently.

It’s time you showed some respect to your body.

💥How to Boost Your Brain Power: 4 Things to Do and 4 Things to Eat

Hello there,
Do you know you’ve been deceived?
If you’ve spent your hundreds of dollars into “Law of Attraction” seminars, books or DVD…
And have yet to manifest your dreams into existence…
There’s a reason for that.
==> [The ‘counterintuitive’ secret KEY to manifestation]
Well-known quantum physics scientists have already agreed that, “Learning” is the worst thing you can ever do, if you want to deliberately and effortlessly manifest the life of your dreams.
In fact, by doing so…
You’re only making this much harder on yourself.
[This short video training] shows why ‘trying to learn’ how to manifest is actually the reason why only a few people are able to do it effectively.
The more you know, the more you’re stuck having trouble manifesting things you want in life.
I know, this is counterintuitive to what the “mainstream” says, especially when there is a ton of books, videos and seminars to buy.
Good news is, there’s a way to skip the learning so you can easily and openly live in your natural state of abundance.
That’s exactly how billionaires achieve their success, despite reading a single book on the law of attraction.
[Click here to discover the secret key to billionaire success >>]

If you’ve ever bought a book, attended a seminar or paid a life coach to teach you “how to manifest abundance…”
Well, I’m sorry to tell you,
But you’ve been misled out of your money…
And took a wrong path to your dreams.
For that, I’m truly sorry
>> [Here’s the reality about manifestation:]
Everything you want, is already yours.
And I do mean, everything;
● The money.
● The freedom.
● The empowerment.
You don’t need to “learn how to manifest” it; any of it.
And anyone who tells you different, like those big name gurus, are making money…
By pretending to know the answers,
So they can live a better life.
But the truth is…
It’s your own limiting beliefs that are programmed in your subconscious…
That’s BLOCKING the money, success and fist-pumping breakthroughs you want, need and deserve…
From easily becoming your reality.
The good news is…
>> [A Brand new technology is changing everything.]
Check it out now…
And discover how to “reprogram” your subconscious… So it automatically manifests everything you could ever ask The Universe for. Without you having to learn anything.
Do you think billionaires sit around reading law of attraction books? They have this KEY THING down to a teeth. Now you can have it too.

P.S. If you have invested a lot of money into your own self-growth, this ONE KEY THING will make it possible for everything you’ve been trying to manifest… to FINALLY become your real-life experience.

P.S.S If you have struggled with manifestation before, this KEY THING was what caused you to struggle. Fix this and unlimited abundance will be yours. [Discover how.]






With love and respect

P.S. It’s now possible to accomplish in mere minutes what used to take months of training and study to accomplish. It’s not just theory, it’s science.
And it’s all thanks to [this strange new scientific method] that’s redefining what it means to manifest abundance.

If you are “magnetically opposed” to abundance. Then You Need to learn how to magnetize your brain to abundance. Find out how this “morning magnet ritual” could you manifest thousands.

12 Proven Ways To Increase Your Intellectual Wellness

👀 🔥🔥🔥 This Japanese Breakfast Drink Changed My Life

Can’t manifest abundance with programs like The Secret or The Law of Attraction? Well 2 professors from Harvard just discovered something that amazed them…

They discovered that the root cause of scarcity actually has to do with the magnetic polarity of your brain.

It’s true. New research has shown that if you’re not manifesting abundance in your life right now…

It’s very likely your brain is “stuck” in a negative polarity.

Luckily, a simple morning ritual has made it incredibly easy to reset that polarity from scarcity to abundance.

In fact, this man used it to manifest 250k in a single weekend… And that’s after living in his car and barely scraping by for 5 years.

Meet David….David was living the American dream…

Until it all went away. He was abandoned by his family and rejected by his friends. Shamed, embarrassed, and desperate, David was forced to live in his car… Eeking out a living driving for Uber.

He tried everything to reverse his fortunes… The Law of Attraction… The Secret… And too many manifestation programs to remember.

But nothing worked.

Sinking deeper and deeper into depression, he was desperate, convinced he was destined for a lifetime of scarcity. Until, during a chance meeting, he saw research by two Harvard professors that explained everything.

Within weeks, David had manifested $250k… in a single weekend.

How was David able to go from living in his car to manifesting thousands?

I made a video [that reveals all.]

💥💥💥 Never “learn” how to manifest money, again

These 2 Harvard professors revealed a secret magnetic switch in the brain that can turn scarcity into abundance…

Almost overnight. For how you too can access this secret abundance switch in the brain…

How is it possible that David manifested $250k in ONE weekend…After being one step from living on the street… for 5 years?

It all happened after a simple morning ritual reset his brain’s magnetic polarity.

He left scarcity far behind while opening the door to jaw-dropping abundance.

Now, instead of worrying about being one step from homeless…David’s biggest problem is figuring out where to put all his money.

Find out what he did, and how this morning ritual can reset your brain’s magnetic polarity to unlimited abundance…

See happiness as a condition, NOT a destination 👌❤❤

Harvard researchers were stunned when their research proved once and for all that some people could NOT manifest abundance and feel happy…

Thanks to a hiccup in their brain’s magnetic polarity. These people were found to be “magnetically opposed” to abundance.

Which means that while they might work hard and try multiple methods of manifestation…It would be almost impossible to live a life of unlimited abundance.

Thankfully…The same research revealed that once you’re able to reset this magnetic polarity…It’s like letting a caged bird fly free.

People ask themselves a lot of the time what’s the secret to having your best life possible. More and more, You could always turn over to our friend David to learn how to do this.

This is because David is making great money, having wonderful relationships…..and he does not seem to be trying too hard to do this.

He calls his secret [The New Happiness Code].

If you ask him why he’s happy all the time, he might tell you “Because I can’t afford NOT to be happy!”

See, David found himself $13,995 in debt… and not debt he could just pay off over time. He lost his home, all his funds, and ended up living his car.

But he learned something he calls the New Happiness Code that turned it all around. See, he had been tremendously unlucky when he lost everything.

No one could have predicted what would happen to him over 8 days of hell.

[=> Click here to see the 3 things that destroyed David’s life…
PLUS the ONE thing that gave David more happiness, money, and love than ever before.]

What I admire about David is he decided to take responsibility for what was happening in his life.

Instead of complaining, he decided that it was on HIM to change things. And that started with changing the way he felt.

The way he felt about himself… about life….and especially the energy of his inner feelings at any given moment.

What blows my mind is he seems to have cracked the code on how to feel good…..even if it feels like everything is falling down all around you.

It’s not affirmations…

Not visualizations…

And not gratitude (though all of those things are awesome).

What I want you to do is check out David’s story because most likely you’ll see a little bit of yourself in there.

We all find ourselves in situations where we get stuck and assume that things are not working for us.

But change can happen in the blink of an eye. It can happen like that for you, right now and today. You just have to take this first step to see what’s possible.

And that is clicking the link below.

🧨 17 Ways You Can Make Money Online Right Now 🎯

💪💪💪 This Unusual Breakfast Tonic Gave Me Back My Confidence

15 Minute Manifestation is a product created by Eddie Sergey. It is a breakthrough personal development product that allows you to literarily reprogram your subconscious mind to allow you to manifest the life of your dreams. If I were to pick up only one personal development product when on a tight budget, I’d definitely choose 15 Minute Manifestation. Simply because it gives me something that other products can’t give.

Now, let us understand what this product is all about and how does it impact our lives by simply tuning the subconscious portion of our brain.

At one point in my life I was in a complete financial turmoil and my life was in disarray. Neither did I see a way out of it nor did I know what to do.

At this point, you might be thinking that I am just one of the sales guy convincing you to buy this product; but believe me you’d be dead wrong to think this way! For me, it wasn’t even the 15 Minute Manifestation that helped me and put me on the right track in life.

It was a guy named Eddie Sergey.

During the post-recession period, unemployment rate was high. And this led to a substantial cut in wages. I was desperate to do ANYTHING just to earn more for a living. Not to mention that I was already in a cloud of negativity and low energy.

I read many books on law of attraction, took courses on manifestation and personal development. I even took therapist session. Neither the therapist nor the courses were of any use. I got lost without any clue of my dreams or goals.

Then I came across this guy – a multimillionaire entrepreneur who claimed to have cracked the code to communicate with the subconscious mind and bring it in tune with the conscious portion of the brain. Or as he called it, “UPGRADE THE SOFTWARE”.

Eddie used the scientific concepts to correlate our thoughts, and hence our brain to the tiniest of particle, the sub-atomic particle. He devised a technique to focus energy waves around us to create a sense of positivity. He explained how “THE EDITOR” or the subconscious part of the brain limits our abilities and keeps us away from abundance by distracting our attention. And that there is a way to naturally reprogram this subconscious mind to lead us to the natural state of abundance.

But more than that, what impressed me the most was his own story. (you can learn about his personal story from his website). He had a very rough childhood and it was unbelievable how he overcame the hardships of his life through this technique he discovered and developed since he was nine years old.

I will not bore you with the deep research Eddie did on brain science and how he co-created the 15 Minute Manifestation together with a team of NLP and hypnosis experts. The bottom line is that if you are looking for a product to scientifically “re-wire” your subconscious brain, then you can trust 15 minute manifestation where you only have to listen to audio tracks unlike other courses which ask you to do endless writing or read ebooks that bore you to death unnecessarily.

I got to try the first audio track to listen for 15 minutes a day for a week and I must say that those 15 minutes proved to be the greatest investment of my life and I mean it. I could feel the change within the first week and then I began to realize what he used to talk about. I was so motivated by the results that I took the complete course of 21 days.

15 Minute Manifestation is NOT woo-woo, made-up or hocus-pocus nonsense. It is NOT one of those crappy, rehashed, useless junk programs which just deceive people to get their money. Neither is it “Think positive and the world will serve it to you” sort of thing.

15 Minute Manifestation also comes with a 60 days no-questions-asked money back guarantee.

But it does come with some CONS too.

15 Minute Manifestation yields proper results when you follow the course and listen to the audio tracks daily for the entire period of 21 days. You may be able to feel the change earlier but if you believe in overnight results, then there is no such thing as overnight success.

So if you’re one of those individuals who just collects programs and doesn’t do anything with the information inside them, I would advise not to waste your money. This program is for dedicated and serious people only, who TRULY want to improve their lives!

DO NOT let things keep happen to you and do this instead! Learn a “cool new” trick for an amazing life.

17 Ways You Can Make Money Online Right Now 🦺

So how do you breakthrough and release all the deep seated thoughts that won’t let you go when everything else you’ve tried has failed?

Here’s what I learned and I didn’t need to spend hours or years meditating (which, by the way, I’d already tried). You don’t need to interpret dreams, read countless books on attracting and intending, create vision boards, or pay for costly seminars (which I’d also tried).

I was able to bypass all the time-consuming techniques and go straight to the source – the subconscious.

  • It only took a few short minutes a day
  • I was able to make “corrections” to my subconscious thought patterns so they rejected negative thoughts that were deeply rooted, the thoughts that continued to hide themselves even though I went through all the meditating, mantras, intending and all the rest of the techniques that are popular today
  • And I was able to form new, powerful thoughts that will became my reality in the same way the old thoughts did.

I’m sure by now you’re asking the same question I had when I first discovered this incredible program:

How does it work?

Let me explain it in simple terms.

15-Minute Manifestation uses theta brainwave technology to bring your brain into the theta state almost instantly. And this is where the magic happens. This is where the subconscious is most receptive to messages.

You may experience, as I did, vivid imagery, long forgotten memories, and intuition leading to creative ideas. I experienced information that apparently was beyond what I are able to receive during my waking hours.

But I wasn’t asleep and I didn’t forget the thoughts I had, as is so often the case when we dream.

15-Minute Manifestation is the last tool I’ll ever need and it only took 15 minutes a day

  • There are no long and tedious books to read, no theories to understand and nothing to memorize
  • All you need is a pair of headphones

Why are you still holding on to all those destructive subconscious thoughts? The technology is available NOW!

By utilizing your brains naturally occurring theta waves – the same waves that occur in sleep and deep meditation – you can reprogram your thoughts to get rid of those that have been making you miserable and keeping you from moving forward.

15-Minute Manifestation is easy and inexpensive (thankfully, because I’d already spent a small fortune and a lot of time on books and seminars that didn’t work). And the benefits are enormous. There’s absolutely no risk because the program comes with a 60-day money back guarantee!

Don’t waste any more precious time being frustrated because you’re unable to live a life that’s fulfilling your dreams. Get this program in hand today and discover what I did – that in just 15 minutes a day you can become the person you want to be. It’s easy and quick and you’ll wonder why you lived so long without it! I know I did!
