Success “Secrets” – The “3 D’s Of Success”

Do you ever wonder why some people are so successful at almost everything they attempt while others seem to struggle to succeed at anything?

I was very fortunate to meet a success coach and mentor over 10 years ago.  He is a self-made millionaire that has taught me, and thousands of others, how to succeed in every area of life through the success “secrets” and principles he has shared over the last 30 years.

One of the first lessons my mentor shared with me was the fact that truly successful people had to first change their way of thinking.  Most people do not have financial growth before they have personal growth. Personal growth starts with changing your way of thinking.  Those that have financial growth before personal growth are usually the ones who lose all their money or the ones that are unhappy, no matter how much money they have.   The people that are happy, with or without money, are the ones who have the priceless personal and spiritual growth along with positive thinking.

One of the very first things my mentor actually recommended that I do, for both personal growth and financial growth, was to read Robert Kiyosaki’s book called “Rich Dad Poor Dad.” This very popular, best seller, along with my mentor’s lessons, headed me in the right direction towards success by changing my way of thinking and growing personally.   I would strongly recommend that everyone purchase this book online or at their local bookstore! It teaches you how to go from working for someone else for your money to having your money actually work for you!

The other step my mentor had me take for success, while reading Robert Kiyosaki’s book, was to come up with my “3 D’s of Success”.

What are the “3 D’s of Success”, you ask?

The first of the 3 D’s is to have a Dream. In order to become successful, you must first have a dream.  Most people actually daydream or imagine the things that they would like to have or do or accomplish but don’t ever come up with enough details about their dreams to be able to see them, smell them, feel them, hear them, taste them, etc.  These dreams need to be so real that you can imagine yourself already having achieved them.

The second of the 3 D’s is Desire. If you have a strong enough desire, you will do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true.  How bad do you want to succeed at your dreams?  Are you willing to take the necessary steps every day or week or month or year to accomplish your dreams?

The third of the 3 D’s is Determination. Most people, especially at the beginning of every year, come up with some really great New Year’s Resolutions, but most of the time these same people are told that their dreams or goals or New Year’s Resolutions are impossible dreams so they are discouraged.  When you develop a vivid, strong, real dream for yourself, you will develop a strong enough determination not to let anyone or anything get in your way of accomplishing your greatest dreams, goals or New Year’s Resolutions.

There have been many hundreds of incredible dreams that truly amazing people in history have accomplished that has created who we are today!  Think of incredible people that you know from present or past that have done incredible things.  Now, think of any dreams that you might have.  I bet you can make them happen, if you have a strong enough dream, desire and determination to make them happen!
