The Approach

A lot of people go through life by taking short-cuts however if you are to achieve success in whatever you endeavour to achieve there are no short cuts. You might have gone through school by cramming for exams and probably got away with it; but with this recipe to success you cannot cram in order to achieve the desired results. You cannot skip the unpleasant parts and just cherry pick what you want and then expect to have the desired results. Just like I explained in my previous posting the path to success is like baking you are following a recipe there are different ingredients, you cannot leave some out and just make do with those you like.

As a matter of fact this recipe to success which we will reveal in subsequent posts shares the same natural cycle that governs farming. I do not know if you are familiar with farming, my parents were subsistent farmers and there was a natural cycle that we followed I cannot imagine it being done any other way. In Zimbabwe where I was born the farming season started just on the on-set of the rainy season which came around October/November which is also the start of a very long African summer. The preparation of the land was first, tilling and weeding then you would plant the seeds on instinct of that it would not be two or three days before the first rains fell, and naturally we would wait for the planted seeds to germinate. As the plants shoot from the ground and start their growth, we had to pay attention we had to taking out weeds that would choke the growth of our plants and take the nutrients intended for our plants. We had to wait right when the plants have matured to harvest them for corn which is commonly farmed by subsistence farmers such as my parents. As I have illustrated above farming follows a natural process which however impatient you are you will have to follow. Suppose you decide you do want to till the land and will just go ahead and plant the seeds, the rain might not permeate the top soil in order to germinate the seeds. Say you decide to skip the planting of the seeds and will just wait the harvest; well I do not have to tell you what you will find come harvest time.
Before we delve in there is an essential fact that we need to address; the issue of scepticism or doubt which is essentially lack of faith. One important aspect is to acknowledge that you have probably failed that is why you are reading this and that the path that we will reveal has worked for countless people who have found success both in their chosen vocations and as well as their personal life. You cannot go into this half-hearted it is not about trying and then seeing what will happen. It will produce half hearted results, with the path it is black and white, there is no middle ground here, it is either that you are in or you are out, you cannot sit on the fence, you have to give this your all if you want the desired results. Remember that what you sow is what you reap; you can expect a different result to that that you put in. As Johann Wolf van Goethe said;

“Nature understands no jesting. She is always true, always serious, always severe. She is always right, and the errors and faults are always those of man”.

In my next post we will look at defining success and the importance of knowing what you want.

The Elusive Secret of Formula To Success

Is there a formula to success many people have asked in their quest for success in life? The answer is yes there is a secret formula which if followed to the letter guarantees success. Let me home this with an analogy, suppose you want to bake a chocolate cake that you might have seen in a magazine or on television. You will need to get the recipe, look at the ingredients, obtain them if you do not have them and prepare to bake your cake according to the recipe and the method. If it is the original cake that you saw in a magazine or on TV that you want then you will need to follow the recipe and play a very close attention to the method in order to get you the required results. However if you decide that to follow part of the recipe and skip some other parts then the result will be different to the original cake that you wanted to bake. As a matter of fact you will end up with something totally different. Well I suppose you can say its easy when baking a cake to stick to the recipe, but the same principles applied in baking/cooking apply in your quest to be successful.

Like everything else in life, there is nothing new under the sun, there are new numerous examples of people that have been successful in life so in essence you will not be trying something new here. However while it is possible to list all the traits of successful people and just get people to emulate them you will find that in-itself does not guarantee success. Do not despair though because I have mastered that elusive secret formula to success it has taken me almost 12 years to get to this level. I am willing to share this proven formula to success with you. Over the coming weeks I will reveal the formula to you and if you follow it to the letter I do not only promise you success but I guarantee you that you will be successful.

Here take my hand and walk with me on this incredible journey that will change your life forever.
