Key to Success in Life

Key to Success in Life

The past year has been challenging for all of us. Last night I was reading a book and a quote caught my attention. “Success in life comes not from holding a good hand, but in playing a poor hand well!”

This old saying comes from the poker table, however, it true in life and business as well. It is easy to keep your optimism when you are being dealt more good things in your life everyday versus bad events or challenges. How do you keep pushing on when each time the “cards” you receive are worse than before? Today, we’re looking at the keys to success.

Key to Success in Life

First, you have to keep in mind that not all of the “cards” you receive are bad. Some are quite good and very encouraging! It just seems that we are being dealt more bad than good. In order to persevere through the challenges start focusing on the positive things that are coming your way.
Second, look at what is not working and start making changes. Be honest with yourself and change your efforts that are not bearing fruit. We often keep doing what has worked in the past whether it is working today or not!
I don’t know about you, but today I am going to list the positive things that are working for me, look long and hard at what’s not working, and make changes!
