While there are so many debatable keys to success, literally, I’ve seen 3, 5, 7. 10…but I believe there is something more important than a key we need to grab hold of in order to achieve our goals.
Want to know what it is? Of course you do, but first, let’s look at some of the most recognizable “keys to success”.
One popular mantra and widely adopted key is “fake it til you make it”, even I’ve written about this “key” before. (you can read that here) Yet it only tends to work short-term. The idea behind this “method” is to fake confidence until you psyche yourself up enough until you hopefully become confident. Again, short-term, great idea, but only a matter of time til your brain catches on to this trickery.
Some of the other keys to success you can find are: determination, passion, luck, discipline, hard work, persistence, gratefulness…we could go on right?
There are two thoughts I want you to take away from this reading today.
ONE: Without belief being your first key to success, you’ll spend way too much time on figuring out which door the other keys open!
Think about it, if you don’t believe in you, how much more difficult is it going to be to utilize the other keys?
We all begin with a dream in our heart and then begin formulating the plan, strategies and goals to get us there. Ask anyone who has achieved or achieving their dream the biggest obstacle they had to overcome to get there and I’d venture to say it was doubt. Therefore they had to believe in themselves.
TWO: Do we really need keys to success?
Hear me out on this one. While I agreee with the importance of implementing “the” (how many are there again??) keys to success, we could walk around looking like the janitor with 100’s of keys on our beltloop. Not only is that heavy, but time consuming!
So…is there a better solution? Well honestly there are no “better solutions” only the ones that you’ll actually find, utilize or create!
Many solutions come more by way of combination than keys.
Once we find the right combination that works in our real life – that’s when things really UNLOCK!
If you are feeling frustrated trying to unlock your solution and the keys are getting confusing, try going with a combination. After all, your time is limited and the world is waiting for you to bring them the gifts you have stored up in you – it’s what you were created to do.
Spending more time focused on working combinations than keys right there with ya,
