5 Essential Lessons on Success

Today I want to talk about the ingredients that cause success. Why do some people succeed, while others fail? what separates the two. I’m constantly intrigued with the concepts involved in success and failure. I’ve dedicated my life to discovering and explaining what separates one from the other.

I spend my days learning about the laws and the principles of success. I believe if we learn these laws and principles we will succeed. In fact, if anyone learns these laws and principles, they will succeed.

The laws of success will move your life from the pit to the palace, from ordinary to extraordinary. With that, let’s take a look at five essential lessons on the causes of success.

5 Must Read Lessons on What Causes Success:
1. Understanding the Success Formula

“Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure.”
–Earl Wilson

Success is usually the result of concentrated focus in an area where you have a natural advantage. Concentrated focus multiplies your effectiveness seven-fold. Concentrated focus makes the difference.

One man with discipline, determination, and focus will accomplish more than a 100 men who are merely interested.

The use of concentrated focus in an area where you are talented, will in time, grant you the opportunity to succeed. Success has almost nothing to do with luck. What people call luck is usually the offspring of concentrated focus. Success may appear to be the result of luck, but appearances are often deceiving.
2. Passionate Energy and Drive

Nespresso al borde de un ataque de nervios

En abril de este año me enteré de este curioso caso y desde entonces me encanta utilizarlo como materia de debate en mis clases. Creo que pocos desconocen la existencia de la marca Nespresso. Y estoy convencido de que estamos ante uno de esos casos que se repetirán hasta la saciedad en los cursos de marketing de los próximos años. Así que, a por él:

La historia del caso es simple: Sara Lee, un potente grupo global con base en EEUU y formado por distintas marcas como, por ejemplo, Marcilla, Bimbo, Hornimans, Williams o Sanex, ha conseguido burlar el sistema de patentes del grupo Nestlé creando unas cápsulas de café compatibles con las maquinas de Nespresso. Afirma, además, que esta fórmula no viola ninguna de las patentes del grupo suizo. El nombre de las cápsulas: L’Or Espresso. Hasta ahora, las cápsulas Nespresso sólo se podían comprar de forma directa en tiendas especiales de la marca, por Internet o por teléfono a un coste relativamente elevado (0,33€/unidad aprox.). Sara Lee en cambio las venderá –según mis fuentes probablemente a partir de septiembre– en gran distribución y a un precio muy inferior. Lo que ocurrirá es que muchos consumidores dejarán de comprar directamente a Nespresso.

Positive Attitude – 5 Steps to a Happy Life

We all want a happy life, and we all know that having a positive attitude feels better than a negative one. But for some reason, we are all attracted to and can be easily drawn to the negative side. How do we go about to establish a more positive attitude as a daily habit?

Even for someone like me, who thinks about and writes about positivity on an almost daily basis, having a positive attitude is not always easy.

I still sometimes see the world through a negative perspective, focusing on the bad and ignoring the good — especially when things aren’t going the way I had hoped. As I’ve been struggling with this lately, I’ve been reminding myself that it really is possible to change my perspective.

About a year and a half ago, I decided I was going to make a change in my life. I was going to start looking for the good, seeking the positive, and striving to make every day a joyful experience.

Grand Marketer of the Year 2010: James Moorhead, Old Spice

In the 1970s, an Old Spice TV commercial opened with a shot of a woman lounging on a corner-unit sofa covered in garishly patterned cushions, surrounded by a jungle of potted palms and ethnic statuettes—a fading hippie paradise. The brunette, wearing a one-piece catsuit with bell-bottoms two feet wide at the ankles, pages idly through a magazine. “Old Spice,” the woman muses in a breathy internal monologue. “It’s a nice smell to snuggle up to.” The scene cuts to a younger woman walking through a city park with fountains—she’s the classic NYU student type, once a staple of Woody Allen’s movies back when Woody Allen’s movies were funny. “That Old Spice—wow!” she thinks aloud. “He sure knows what he’s doing!”

You could reshoot that spot today for its unintentional comic value and it would fit right in with Procter & Gamble’s current efforts for Old Spice, the seemingly ubiquitous “Smell like a man, man” campaign.

Confusion to Clarity in 3 Steps

Time and time again, I’ve watched coaching clients walk into my office stuck, in the fog of confusion about some situation in their lives. They are sure that they don’t know how to move forward, that they don’t know which next step to take.

We’ve all been there – in that uncertain, frustrating place. It’s no fun.

Time and time again I’ve watched those same clients walk out of my office having uncovered a clear, wise answer to their questions, a clear resolution to their dilemma, the kind that allows them to move forward with that wonderful sense of confidence and calm.

I certainly didn’t give them their answers – I don’t have them. They found the answers inside. We followed a simple process that cleared a space for their own answers to emerge.

This article is a guide to doing that process on your own. In 3 simple steps, you can shift from a state of confusion to mental clarity.

All of us have an ever-present, remarkable well of inner wisdom, there for us whenever we need it. The tricky part is learning to access it. Our inner guru speaks quietly. In the midst of busy lives and busy minds, it can be difficult to hear.

Here’s how to access the wealth of wisdom within us and overcome mental confusion, in three steps.

No hay nada peor que una buena campaña para un mal producto

Hoy vamos a hablar sobre publicidad + política con el riesgo que ello conlleva. Creo que no hay hábito de hablar de política en España por el “miedo” de que la gente te encasille. O simplemente porque estamos tan cansados de la clase política que nos falta el ánimo de aportar nuestras opiniones. Da igual la razón, creo que es un mal hábito no hablar de política. La reflexión de hoy gira entorno a la llamativa campaña electoral del President Montilla para las elecciones autonómicas catalanas.

Como veis, se trata de una campaña muy gráfica y, en mi opinión, visualmente muy conseguida. El concepto, claro y fácil de entender: Hechos y no palabras. Más plazas de guarderías, más kilómetros de metro, más aeropuertos… mucho más respecto a lo que había antes. Pero veamos, ¿hacer MÁS significa hacer las cosas MEJOR? Creo que “los hechos” no están tan claros. No todo es blanco o negro. No siempre más es mejor. Ejemplo: Los barracones escolares en Catalunya se duplican en seis años.

La velocidad relativa

El tema de hoy trata sobre la importancia de regular nuestro tiempo. Para poder llegar a este punto, me gustaría comenzar hablando de una percepción estrechamente vinculada al tiempo que es la velocidad -la velocidad relativa- a la que ocurren las cosas. El concepto de velocidad relativa es un fenómeno que descubres cuando estudias física. Se trata de un concepto que tiene que ver con el movimiento, que siempre es relativo porque tiene que tener una referencia particular escogida por el observador. La velocidad de un objeto, por ejemplo de un avión que observas al despegar, no es la misma que su velocidad respecto a la tierra.
