7 Philosophies That Will Help You Achieve Success

We all want to be successful in life, don't we? Whether it's relationship success, achieving our ideal body, sporting performance, business success, or anything else. Whatever it is, many of us seem to be on a never-ending quest for such success.

However, we are frequently our own worst enemy. We frequently get in our own way, impeding our own development. Why is this the case? Because we haven't developed the personal philosophies required for life success.

Tony Robbins taught me a simple 7-step process that will show you how to:

1. Always act from a position of personal power

What exactly is personal power? Personal power is defined as the ability to act. But what holds people back from taking action? The answer is self-evident: fear!

The most terrifying fear is the fear of failure. So, on a collective and personal level, we must agree to discipline our mindset to recognize that there are no failures, only results or outcomes. In life, you never fail; you always succeed. You are successful in obtaining some sort of outcome. The important thing is what we do with the results.

Consider it… How many of us always achieve our objectives? I'd guess there aren't many. But how many of us get a result or an outcome all of the time? We are all guilty of it.

The bottom line is, how many of us enjoy failing? But how many of us are enthusiastic about learning? So, from now on, we can ensure our success by understanding that there are no failures and that you can always improve by learning from your experiences. I've always tried to teach my students that the acronym F.A.I.L. stands for First Attempt In Learning.

2. Accept responsibility for your surroundings

Shouldn't everyone? There is a belief in this world that I completely agree with: everything that has happened to you in your life is a direct result of your actions, either physical or mental. Thoughts are objects. You become what you think about. The Law of Attraction is based on this belief.

Perhaps you do not subscribe to this belief system. After all, this is a very strict line that is difficult to accept at first. But allow me to explain why this is the case. Who has the authority to change a problem if you are not responsible for your surroundings?

When you realize you have a problem in a world for which you are responsible, you have the power to change it! This belief system is not intended to tell you that things are your fault, but rather to empower you to believe that you can change your life circumstances no matter what.

3. Constantly stretch and challenge yourself

If you want to grow as a person, you must stretch and challenge yourself on a regular basis. Place yourself in situations that make you feel uneasy because it is outside of your comfort zone that the magic happens! When you put yourself out there, you realize you can and must perform. Human beings can do incredible things when they put themselves in danger; they can accomplish things they never thought possible.

Let me ask you this: how many times has a looming deadline compelled you to work your tail off and produce results? Under such duress, some of us produce our best work. We grow and achieve by stretching. And when we do, we realize that it is our thinking, not our ability, that is holding us back.

There are a few key factors to consider when stretching yourself:

  • Make a promise to yourself to do something that appears to be beyond your current abilities.
  • Make a public pledge, a public declaration to someone important in your life who can hold you accountable.
  • Model someone who is already achieving a result that appears to be beyond your current ability.
  • Carry it out! Take action, follow your model's steps, and when you don't know what to do, act as if you do. “Well, if I knew what to do, I'd do this…” This mindset removes your limiting belief and allows you to access the resources you truly possess as an incredible human being.

4. Focus on unconscious competence rather than cognitive comprehension

When you don't have to understand every little detail, you can just run with it and things will flow. Cognitive understanding, on the other hand, is where you understand every little detail, how things work, and why things happen. It is here that we frequently become entangled and stymied, preventing us from taking action.

My point is that rather than understanding every last detail, it is critical that you immerse yourself in action, in activity.

Experiential learning, in my opinion, is far more powerful than studying books and lectures. This is something I can attest to from personal experience. When I first started teaching, I was thrown into a class of misbehaving, underachieving 14-year-old students and told to teach them a topic I had just studied the morning before.

I can tell you right now that that experience taught me far more than reading a book on teaching or sitting in the back of a lecture theater with other teacher trainees. That was the start of my career, and I've never looked back. Since then, I've had a successful career and worked my way up to senior leadership.

5. Always act in accordance with your personal integrity

By integrity, we mean that we act in accordance with our own set of beliefs. As long as you believe they are true and take consistent action that corresponds to your belief systems, your progress will correspond to your goals, and you will develop in the way you need to and have more personal success in life.

(((Instant Book Preview of Napoleon Hill's Philosophy of Success)))

Wholeness is another definition of integrity. Just consider this for a moment. Would you consider someone to be whole if they are not acting with personal integrity and in accordance with their belief systems? Someone who is sincere? Would you go to them for advice or purchase a product or service from their company?

6. The response you receive is the meaning of communication

What should you do if you're not getting the results you want, even if you're acting with the best of intentions? Change! Remember that the world operates on the basis of stimulus and response.

If your communications aren't working, it's not because your audience isn't listening; it's because your physiology, tonality, body language, and so on elicited the incorrect response. So, what are you going to do? Alter your strategy! Use different words, change your tone, and change your body language. Communication, not intention, is everything. The outcome is everything.

7. Make a commitment to do whatever it takes to succeed

With the exception of causing harm to others, of course!

All of the preceding disciplines are supported by this final discipline. If we want to be successful in life, we must commit to making that wish a reality. The key to life success is to move from interest to commitment to action from personal power.
