The Ten Misconceptions of Success

Is it time for you to change your attitude about success? Maybe... I've found in much of my work with people on creating a better, more positive attitude towards life that many of us have a misunderstanding about success and what makes us successful.

Here are the ten most common misconceptions people have about success and some thoughts about those misconceptions.

Some people can't be successful because of their background, education, etc.

Anybody can be successful. It's a matter of wanting to, then doing what it takes to achieve it.

Successful people don't make mistakes.

7 Steps to Living at the Speed of Life

Everywhere you turn today, people are in a constant rush: Hurry here! Hurry there! Free up an extra half-hour and you just might be able to squeeze one more task into your already overflowing schedule of things to do.

Unfortunately, too many of us these days mistake living fast for living well. They aren't the same things. Rather than spend your time rushing around not enjoying life, make the decision to do just the opposite. Choose to slow down.

Below I've listed 7 steps that will help you get started "gearing down" to a calmer, more enjoyable pace: your own, personal, speed of life.

"Every man's life lies within the present; for the past is spent and done with, and the future is uncertain."
--Marcus Aurelius

As a coach, I find that, when I work with people on creating their ideal lives, we generally start with an assessment of where they want to be in the future as compared to where they are now, which almost always means spending some time taking a look at where they've been in the past.
