My Nine Success Secrets
By Jerry Montero
These nine success secrets apply to anything you do in life, not just to doing business offline or online.
First: LOVE is the foundation of everything--love for whatever you do and for others. "To be a genius means to do what you love doing." --Johann Sebastian Bach
Second: Living and dying from moment to moment is the key to happiness: live each day as if it were your last. Your past is unimportant, your future no one knows; you are the master of your destiny.
Third: Be honest and take responsibility for everything you think, say, and do.
Fourth: Focus on your goal, which has to be bold but reachable, and take action. The time for action is today, not tomorrow.
Fifth: Be different. Doing what everybody is doing leads to mediocrity. If you can stand alone, then no fad, no arm- twisting, no peer pressure will sway the foundation of your being.
Sixth: Never give up: be convinced you will succeed and you will. But keep it simple--simplicity is the mark of a true genius. And smell the flowers: life is not a race and the journey is as important as the destination.
Seventh: Never stop learning. Read, get training, develop skills until you're ready to kick the bucket. Look, listen, learn, laugh, live, love.
Eighth: Without good physical and mental health you can do little in life. Exercise. Enjoy nature. Eat to live. Keep away from junk food and recreational drugs: coffee, tobacco, alcohol, cocaine, meth, etc. These drugs are sapping people worldwide of their energy and are killing them daily.
Ninth: Don't take yourself too seriously. Learn to laugh at yourself; if you do you will be laughing all the way to the bank in no time. Sense of humor is the elixir that will keep your mind young and creative. ;)
