Success is easy, but so is neglect… Jim Rohn.

Jim Rohn said, “Success is to be attracted by the person you become.” When you become, you are like a magnet that attracts what you need to make your life a success. In this manner, if you become, then success is made easier because you are attracting it. This is much easier than working hard and NOT GETTING any or at most very little return for your efforts. This is what a seed does when planted. It attracts what it needs to help it grow and become everything for which it was designed.

Jim Rohn also said, “Success is nothing more than a few little disciplines, practiced every day.” Think of it, just a few disciplines followed consistently is what it will take to make you a success. However, if you do not practice these disciplines; if you are not consistent, but complacent, you will find yourself short of that which it takes to be a success. You will find yourself a product of neglect, and that neglect will lead to mediocrity, disappointment, and REGRET. As a matter of fact, Jim Rohn also said, “We must all suffer one of two things: The pain of discipline OR the pain of regret.” I would much rather carry the pain of a few simple disciplines than have to take medication to help forget the regret at night so I can go to sleep OR have to get up each and every day facing the regret of what I didn’t do, didn’t say, didn’t practice, didn’t study, didn’t learn, and ultimately, didn’t become.

So, the simplicity of this is, both are easy in that all you have to do is a few simple disciplines and you can become a success. These disciplines wind up taking on a life of their own and building on the same theory as compound interest…they grow and become more. In the same manner neglecting these few disciplines each day leads to a life of regret. It is neglecting what you know you should be doing, but you have decided not to do for whatever reason you have accepted. By accepting to neglect, you are also accepting the result of the neglect and that result will lead to regret.

Carrying the weight of regret will negatively affect your health, demeanor, and your outlook on life. Regret saps your energy leaving you depressed. Regret will lead to burnout and as a friend of mine so aptly pointed out, “When you are living your highest, you don’t experience burnout.” This is because you are passionate about what you are doing. You are driven toward your goals. Success becomes easier when you have your eyes on THE PRIZE, remaining focused on that prize until it becomes a reality in your life. Your passion becomes a driving force keeping you on the straight and narrow; it keeps you doing the few simple disciplines necessary to keep you on the path to success. It keeps you making the few correct choices based on a few simple disciplines and makes success easy.

Best of LUCK as you
