the secret to success

THERE ARE so many answers to this age-old question: What is the secret to success? Thousands of books have been written on the topic; and it has inspired hundreds of movies, documentaries and keynote speeches. And yet we continue to strive to find the silver bullet — that single secret that will propel us to success. What if the secret is that there is no secret? What if real success is the product of patience, and the ability to stick with your goals, day by day, week by week, month by month — without losing focus or getting discouraged?

6 ways to build a millionaire mindset

» Small starts have big results. By the time I was in varisty I was studying, had a business and my first property. I’d chat to my peers and their eyes would widen. They’d always say they wished they’d started early as well, or that they’d known it was possible when they were youngsters. It’s always possible, and it’s never too late to start. You just need a goal, and you need to take the first steps — and stick with them. It’s not an overnight thing. It’s slow and steady. » Success is the result of discipline, perseverance and passion.

9 habits of mentally strong people

We all reach critical points in our lives where our mental strength is tested. It might be a difficult friend or colleague, business challenges, a dead-end job or a struggling relationship.

The ability to break the mould and take a bold new direction requires extra grit, daring and spunk that only mentally strong people have. It’s fascinating how mentally strong people set themselves apart from the crowd. Where others see impenetrable barriers, they see challenges to overcome. When Thomas Edison’s factory burned…

the gritty truth about success

WHEN ANGELA DUCKWORTH started teaching Grade 7 maths, she realised that IQ was not a reliable predictor of who would be her best and worst students. In fact, some of her strongest performers did not have stratospheric IQ scores. Equally, some of her smartest kids weren't doing so well. Duckworth was convinced that each of her students could learn the material if they worked hard and long enough. After several years of teaching, she came to the conclusion that a much better understanding of students and learning is required from a motivational and psychological perspective. In education, we know how to measure IQ, but what if doing well in school and in life depends on much more than your ability to learn quickly and easily? IDENTIFYING THE SUCCESS FACTOR So, Duckworth left the…
