Here’s a sobering statistic: by the age of 65, on average only 5% of us will have achieved success. “Yeah, right. . . ” you might say, “Success is subjective; there is more than one version of what it means to be successful.”
The author of this book disagrees with you. Along with Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg, and all the other billionaires on earth. Here is the absolute, best definition of what it means to be successful: success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.
In other words, success is when an individual who knows what they want to do works towards achieving their dream. That sentence alone gives you clues into the strangest secret on how to achieve a life of prosperity and success. The key is setting a goal, creating a plan to achieve said goal, and following through.
Written by Earl Nightingale, who in 1941 was aboard the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Mr. Nightingale was just one of the fifteen surviving Marines. This experience, combined with the maxim “As ye sow, so shall ye reap,” inspired Mr. Nightingale to embark on a new path, anchored in the philosophy that each of us becomes what we think about. We become what we think about–is an idea that has echoed through the ages, from the Bible to preeminent thinkers of today. Despite this, most of us choose to ignore this precept.
