The Three Keys To Success

How come some people manage to attain great success while others stay stuck where they are?

What is it that successful people do that unsuccessful people don’t?

Is there a magic formula that only successful people know about?

The answer to all these questions is very simple and can be achieved with three simple steps.

  • Continuous Learning
  • Self Belief
  • Hard Work

It’s that simple. The three keys to success behind every successful person you ever met, read about or saw on TV are the same. They may be put to you in other ways. They be broken down into smaller, bite size chunks or sold to you as a work shop or online programme; but the fact remains that all that is standing between you and great success are continuous learning, self belief and hard work!


I recently wrote about Jack Canfields ‘Hour of Power’ in A happier, healthier you in 3 simple steps! and one of the things he says to do in your ‘Hour of Power’ is to read for twenty minutes a day. The importance of this is that we should never stop trying to improve ourselves and our minds. Jack recommends reading motivational books, articles and news reports. Brian Tracy is another great believer in constant learning. He says:

….develop the habit of continuous lifelong learning….

We are never too old, or too young, to start learning something new. It is never too late to improve on the knowledge we already have. We can never know all there is to know about anything. Continuous learning makes us grow as human beings. It teaches us things we never imagined we would be able to do. Our success in everything from business, to relationships, to life in general starts with learning. We learn from our mistakes and our failures. We learn from our fellow man. Treat every experience as an opportunity to learn.

The key is to commit to your continued learning. Read every day. If it’s your relationships you want to make more successful, dedicate your reading to books about building great relationships and improving relationships. Learn how to look to yourself to improve on your relationships. What can you do to improve yourself and, therefore, your relationships.

If you want to make your business more successful, commit to learning more about your specific area of business or field of expertise. Learn more about your competitors and customers. Read books and magazines that relate to your business.

Seek out a mentor. Find someone who you aspire to become as successful as and ask them for support and advice. Approach them and ask if they would be prepared to mentor you. Don’t think in terms of how much something will cost you, that is not how you get what you want. You need to think in alignment with what you want, you need to match the vibration of what it is you desire.


Successful people all have one major thing in common, they all have an abundance of self belief. They believe, without question, that they are successful. This does not mean that they don’t have doubt or worry or fear, of course they do, they wouldn’t be human if they didn’t. The difference between successful people and those who are not successful is that they don’t allow that doubt or worry or fear to stop them going after their goals. They use it to drive them forwards. They don’t make decisions based on these negative emotions. They don’t let doubt or fear or worry stand in their way. They face their fears head on and just push on through!

The key is they have a goal, a clear vision of what they want. They don’t limit themselves by thinking they can only go so far. To successful people, there are no limits. They think strategically not reactively. They match their thinking to their goal. Successful people believe that everything is possible.

Jim Roth’s famous quote. If you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with then it figures that you should surround yourself with successful, positive, motivational people who all have similar goals and visions as you. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and encourage you. If you look at successful people you will notice that the people they surround themselves with are all very similar in terms of success and vision.

Success is not just financial or business success. To be truly successful means to have balance and abundance in all areas of your life; work, relationships, financial freedom. The freedom to travel and enjoy life and spend time with the ones you love. Freedom to give. Freedom to help and support others less fortunate than yourself.


You cannot and will not achieve anything without action! Successful people know this and work hard to achieve their goals. They know that in order to be the best version of themselves they must push themselves and take action every day. Nothing is ever achieved by sitting around dreaming. Your dreams can only become reality if you take action. Nobody can do it for you. Only you can make your dreams come true. Only you can make your vision a reality.

Do what you can with what you have.

Successful people were not always successful. They started with what they had, they worked hard and they watched as their businesses grew. Lord Alan Sugar started by selling car aerials out of a van he bought for £50, in 2016 his estimated fortune was £1.15 billion!

You may not have thousands of pounds in the bank, you may not know all the answers, but as long as you have a clear vision and you make the choice, to take the first step and not let doubt and fear and worry stop you in your tracks then you are already a success. Push yourself. Take action every day. Commit to work hard to achieve your goals. Follow the three keys to success and you cannot fail. It is the law of the universe. You are the creator of you world. Create something great!

Six Super Powers of the Mind

So it seems that if I am to become a successful writer first I must become famous, rich, hugely successful, a public speaker and a social media piranha! According to an article I read recently my chances of ever getting my book published, let alone making any money out of it, are slim to none!

Well that made for motivational reading (not!)

Suffice to say, I am not taking any notice of what I have read. As my mother always says “You shouldn’t believe everything you read” and for once I am taking her advice.

The whole principle of this blog is to prove that anyone can achieve whatever they desire. Be is success, a happy fulfilling relationship, a healthy body, ideal weight, wealth, whatever you can imagine in you mind you can hold in your hand.

Our six untapped super powers are:







Mary Morissey is an expert in this field. She explains how we can unlock these super powers to create everything we dream of.

You will all recognise these six little words. You probably think you are using them already. But are you? Are you really using them as they are meant to be used?

I have said it before and I will say it again:


Everything ever create was first IMAGINED!

INTUITION: Do you listen to your intuition? Those gut feeling you get. Do you act upon your intuition? I bet the answer is no more often than not? How often do your ignore those ‘gut feelings’? STOP! Start to take notice of your intuition. Listen to what the Universe is trying to tell you. Trust your gut!

WILL: Will it to happen. Have total belief that it will happen. This is not the same as will power. Will power is inconsistent and forceful, will is calm and confident. When you use your will, you create such a frequency of belief that whatever it is you want has no choice but to manifest.

MEMORYImage result for alice in wonderland 6 impossible things before breakfast quote

Memory is not just about what has happened in our past. We can create our future memories. Whatever it is you want, create it as a memory in your mind. Visualise it so much that it is cemented into your subconscious as an actual memory. Focus on past memories but only the good to raise your vibration. Don’t dwell on negative memories as they only serve to lower your vibration and reduce your creative power.

If you believe 6 impossible things before breakfast like Alice imagine how extraordinary your life would become.!

REASON: Most people seek to use logic to navigate situations, make decisions and “get ahead” in life… but logic is based on evaluating current circumstances and can only produce more of the same results. Reason, on the other hand, is based on your infinite potential – Mary Morissey

PERCEPTION: Whether you realise it or not, you are actively using your faculty of Perception in every moment of every day.

Most people perceive without awareness, and therefore experience life as a series of uphill battles. But by shifting your Perception, you will have the power to turn even the most overwhelming challenges into insignificant road bumps on the path toward living a life you love.

Once you master your Perception, you become unstoppable in life! – Mary Morissey

So as you all know from my previous post Don’t forget synchronicity I’ve been doing an online course with the delightful Jack Canfield. Yesterday’s homework was to focus on my past successes. This, for me, is easier said than done. However, I have to say that when you really think it about and start to write down what you have achieved in life, no matter how big or how small, you really start to feel positive about yourself.

You see, we always seem to remember the bad things, the stuff that didn’t go right. We mull it over and over in our minds until it becomes so much bigger than it really is. How many times has something happened and you’ve felt embarrassed? You replay it again and again in your head until it is such a monumental event that you never want to leave the house again! When, in reality, nobody else, other than you, has given it a second thought.

So let’s start focusing on the good! Our achievements. Our successes.Give it a try. You’ll be amazed at how good it makes you feel and how motivated you will be to take on your next challenge because you will know you are capable of anything!

Today’s lesson was all about E+R=O (Event+Response=Outcome).

Jack says that no matter what happens in our lives (event) the outcome is determined by our response. Our response is the only thing we have control over. Therefore, it’s our response that determines our success and happiness. We create our outcome!

Put it this way. Something happens to you at work. A colleague does something that pisses you off. Maybe they didn’t complete their part of a certain task or ignored a job that needed doing? Now this is where we choose our response. We can either react badly and so we get a bad outcome or we can react in a positive way, therefore, we get a positive outcome. It may be that the reason our colleague didn’t complete their part of the task is because they were busy dealing with something else or they weren’t feeling too good. Maybe they didn’t know how and were too embarrassed to admit it. Maybe they just couldn’t be bothered! The truth is, it doesn’t matter why they didn’t do it, they just didn’t do it. Now we can choose to let this stress us out. We can choose to get angry about it. Does it change anything? The answer is no!  Our response only affects us. It doesn’t change the event, it only changes the outcome. If we choose to react in a positive way we will receive a positive outcome.

I know it’s hard, especially when how others work impacts on our workload, but this is where we choose to let it stress us out or we choose let it go, to take a positive response. E+R=O.

We are the creators of our happiness. We choose what decisions we make. We choose. We respond. We create our outcomes.

I quit smoking last year. I gained weight. It wasn’t the event, me quitting smoking, that made me gain weight. It was my response to me quitting smoking that made me gain weight! I chose to eat to substitute my not smoking. I chose food over cigarettes. My choice, my response = negative outcome. Now I am exercising and eating healthy again. I am losing the weight I gained. My response to my weight gain = positive outcome.

I can’t wait for tomorrows lesson. This course has taught me so much. It has also reminded me to keep a positive mind and take responsibility for my outcomes.

Everything we are experiencing in our lives, right now, is a direct result of what we have thought. How we responded to things. We are the creators of our universe. If you don’t like what is in your life, change what you think and how your respond. Only we can change our outcomes. Only we can create what we want. The blame game needs to stop. Nobody else controls us. If you want something to change only you can make that happen.
