What’s the secret to success?

 Hi Team,

Another great message from Gary. Are you prepared to be a problem solver? 


Have you ever wondered why it is that some people succeed while others seem to always struggle? I’ve had that thought a few times over the years and I have formed an opinion. I’d like to share that with you today.

There really aren’t any secrets about how to become successful….in anything. Volumes of books have been written on the subject. There are no secrets, but there are very specific steps, or ideas, or suggestions about how to make things happen.

Here we go. When a person is prepared for success, they literally put themselves in position to make things happen. What does being prepared mean? Prepared people have gone through daily disciplines. They read daily…….They do something every day about their passion……They are willing to learn and they usually never have excuses…..They listen to CD’s….they attend meetings……they conduct meetings…..they are willing to learn lessons…..that means they are willing to fail……but because they have prepared themselves by their daily disciplines, they succeed.

Becoming successful is actually very simple, it’s just not easy! So that brings me to this point. When you see someone who is very successful at building their Shaklee business, please understand that they have had many disappointments, lots of obstacles to overcome, perhaps weekly setbacks at times, and have faced many problems but they have become problems solvers. There you have the secret to success.

You might be saying to yourself right now, “I thought you said there weren’t any secrets.” All right, I was lying. So you now know the secrets to succeed at anything you ever want to try. Prepare yourself so you are always in a position to make things happen when the opportunity presents itself. BUT, don’t be surprised by disappointments, obstacles, setbacks, or unknown problems. That’s all part of the process of being prepared.
