Success

Success.

I think T.S. Eliot said it best when he said:
“Success is relative.  It is what we make of the mess we have made of things.”

Our successes and our failures cannot be measured by anyone except ourselves.
We set the bar…
We determine what success looks like for us…
We build, create, dream…
Start, stop and finally finish somewhere.

Our plateaus and valley’s,
our free falls and steady climbs,
all done by us…
to reach goals, set by us.

So, when we say we haven’t succeeded, it doesn’t mean we’ve failed.
It simply means we haven’t made anything out of our mess…yet!

Success doesn’t always come easily or swiftly
but it does come.

In the early 1900’s a man named Roderick G. Stevens created a series of 52 “talks” on success, and the logic of business.

He sold his idea to companies and organizations all over the United States.

These companies handed out a single business tip to each of their employees every pay day for one year.  At the end of the year, these workers each carried a now completed collection of the logic they would need to help their employers, and themselves, run a successful business.

As I am reading through these tips…
I realize the value of this 100 year old book that I hold in my hands.

The knowledge that is bound inside this leather cover can determine your success…
These little tips, when used to their full potential, can point you in a direction that can make your success inevitable.

Over the next few weeks,  I want to share some of these pieces of wisdom with you in hopes that your vision for success is expanded and your logic for business comes naturally.

Week 1:
“Do the little things well and all things will take care of themselves in the natural evolution of progress.”
