The Secret To Success is to Master Yourself

By Hannah du Plessis

Many people have the ambition to succeed; they may even have special aptitude for their job. And yet they do not move ahead. Why? Perhaps they think that since they can master the job, there is no need to master themselves.” - John Stevenson

Statistically, most self-help and how-to books stay unopened on the shelf, or read once and then forgotten. 

The reason for this is that most people are just not disciplined enough to study these books bit by bit or one section at a time and master it before moving onto the next level. 

That is why musicians are among the most successful because they have to learn one skill at a time and then practice it until they master it before going on to the next skill. 

That is also why schools and universities are so effective because they also teach skills bit by bit until their students master it.

What is the secret to success? 

1.    Mastering different skills
2.    Practicing them often
3.    Try and fail until you succeed 

You can only do this if you are self-disciplined.

If you have mastered yourself.

Bit by bit

Little by little

Piece by piece

Those who are successful have learned to master themselves.

So, what are you going to do today? Are you going to make some more excuses, or are you going to knuckle down and master yourself so you can do what it takes?

Daily inspiration may help you.

A boost in self-confidence may help you.

But in the end, it is up to you.

Be all you can be! 

To Your Success!
