iSucceed: Secrets for the Average Joe and Jand (eBook)
To some people success is a million-dollar business. To others it is a comfortable job that allows them to spend quality time with their family. Some people see success as a great family. Others judge their success based on gold medals or championships.
Success is what you determine it to be.
For me success means being able to do what I want, with who I want, for as long as I want, when I want.
7 years ago I considered myself a success. I was married to a lovely wife who loved me and stood by my side and a job that I loved which gave me a comfortable life. At the time I asked myself what more could a man ask for?
I would have said that this is the essence of a good life.
But that was then and this is now. A lot has changed. I’ve changed, and let’s face it, the world has changed.
I lost 40% of my savings and stared death straight in the face. And yet, I’m still standing.
Today more so than ever before we are asked to do more and achieve more in less and less time. It isn’t easy. We all know that.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
This was the question I asked myself many years ago because I had a vision of my future and I didn’t like what I saw. What to do?
I honestly had no idea. But rather than just sit and wait around for someone to tell me I decided to take action.
Nothing spectacular…I just started searching. I simply went looking for help. And boy did I find it. A wealth of information.
I read books, listened to audio lectures, watched DVD trainings and then started applying the ideas to my own life.
The result was nothing short of incredible.
Seeing the changes in my own life I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could share these ideas with my students (being a teacher at the time).
There was only one problem.
I took a look at all I’d read and thought, “Jeez, not many people are going to want to read all these books.” I say that because when I first started out it was a struggle. Maybe that’s too nice a word – it was TOUGH.
But I knew what I wanted so I kept going.
So if most people weren’t going to spend the time to go through all the information I went through, I had a problem – What could I do to help share these ideas with other?
I sat there for a while wondering what I could do and then it hit me: Why don’t I write my own book?
A book that is short enough for people to read but powerful enough to help make a difference in people’s lives.
A book that would introduce a handful of the best ideas I’ve come across in my studies.
There are some incredible books out there that are life-changing but simply looking at a book that’s over 500 pages will make some people weak at the knees.
Then there are other books that are simply too wordy or too abstract.
A book that’s short and sweet. A book that won’t intimidate most people. A book that includes ideas on success and achievement as well as my own life experiences that have the power to make a difference in people’s lives.
