“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 10

June 19, 2009

REASON # 10 – You worry what your family and
friends would think about you if you read or listened
to self-development material.

Im going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I'm going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I was always embarrassed about reading self-development
books on the train into work.

That was until I realised who was still going to be on the
same train in five years time, and I knew it wasn’t going to
be me!

I still get raised eyebrows from my family, but I will be
the one who is smiling when I achieve what I know that I can
achieve. Only this evening…my sister laughed out loud when
I told her that my eBook was called “The Science of Success”

But…at least I am doing what I want to do.

I take my personal development seriously.

Others may ridicule you…or laugh behind your back…but
they will be the jealous ones when you reach your dream…
and they are still stuck in never-never land!

So the moral of the story is…

Do what you want to do with your life…and not what others
say you should do.

REASON # 9 – You worry more about job security,
than how happy you are.

Enjoy your ONE life!

Enjoy your ONE life!

Job security is all in your mind.

How do you know that the company you work for will be around
in a year’s time, let alone ten year’s time? If you dread
waking up on a Monday morning…

- Find a different job, or
– Find a way to supplement your income so that you can leave
and do what you would really love to do.

I went against my wife and family and quit my job, despite
having no savings. I quit to do this. It’s what I want to do
with my life. Period.

Two years ago, I was counting the years to I retired at 60
with a full two-thirds pension. So what changed?

I changed…because the world won’t.

I decided that I couldn’t be unhappy for 40+ hours a week
…I decided that I wanted to see my family grow up…I
decided that I wanted to help my wife more with our
disabled son.

I decided to do what I wanted to do…and not what society
expects me to do. That’s why I wrote my eBook -
“The Science of Success”

I had a good career…with a decent salary. But I realised
that we are here to enjoy life…and not to struggle with
life. I have seen enough miserable people who work 70+
hours a week and have a fantastic salary…yet their kids
hardly know them.

It’s your life…and you only get one shot at it.

So you might as well enjoy it!

I hope that this part of the report has shown you
that there are more ways to be a success, other than what
can be measured in monetary terms.

REASON # 7 – You look at what you can buy with
your salary increase – not how much you can save.

I know many people that have homes to die for. The only
problem is that their mortgage is bigger than the house!

The equation is simple – if you increase your borrowings in
line with your salary you will be poor when you retire. If
you increase your savings in line with your salary you will
become rich when you retire. It’s really that simple.

In the classic book “The Richest Man in Babylon”, George S.
Clason wrote that if you saved 10% of your salary every
month…you would become rich. Although the book was written
in the early 20th century…it’s probably more relevant than
ever.

Save a proportion of your salary every month…even if it is
only 1%. And make sure that you cannot easily access it. If
you do this…not only will you have some money behind you
…but you will also get into the habit of saving.

Believe me…once you get into that habit…you will get as
much pleasure from saving and investing as you do from
spending.

It may seem unbelievable to you…but take my word for it -
it’s true!

REASON # 3 – You’d rather watch television that work
on your personal development.

Once you have used time, you cannot get it back. Isn’t it
more important to use it for your development than for
watching the TV?

One of my top 3 all-time quotes comes from my mentor -
Jim Rohn. He says:

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money,
but you cannot get more time”

I used to spend all weekend reading the thick broadsheet
newspapers – it used to take that long! I realised that I
was wasting days, even weeks, every year reading about
things that had already happened!

What good will that do for my future?

So now…I’m more selective in what I do…and what I read.
I get as much information from quickly glancing through a
newspaper as I did from reading it from cover to cover. I
only watch the TV programmes I really want to watch…and
not just anything that happens to be on.

Use your time wisely.

Did you know that if you got into the office one hour
earlier every working day…you would be producing almost
7 WORKING WEEKS more work in a 48-week year! (See I even
gave you time off for your vacation.)

I got up an extra hour earlier every day so that I could
spend quality time writing my eBook – “The Science of Success”

Once I had got used to it…I didn’t really notice any
difference!

Imagine the impact 2 hours less TV every night could have
on your life and your future. Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Cartoon – Real Winners!

REASON #1 – You never act on the information you read in
self-help books.

Reading the latest book by your favourite self-help author
may be interesting, even enlightening, but it is money
wasted if you just read the book, and do nothing else.

It seems that a lot of people want to champion the fact that
they have read “hundreds” of self-help books. For all the
good it has done them, they might as well have read hundreds
of novels!

You can get something out of every self-help book you read
…if you actually do something with the information rather
than just read it. By their very nature, these books should
be treated as life “User Guides” and dipped into at regular
intervals for inspiration.

If you do read a book from cover-to-cover make sure that you
have made notes about those “Ah ha” moments that you should
have had if the book has lived up to it’s promises.

The best thing of all to do is to summarize the book
yourself…by understanding the information on your own
terms you will be more able to focus on what you can apply
in real life.

I’m a great admirer of Gary’s work and have known him for years and love his ‘down-to-Earth’ approach.

How can you hit a target you don’t even have!?

April 3, 2009

“Famous archer, Howard Hill won all of the 267 archery contests he entered. He could hit a bullseye at 50 feet, then split first arrow with the second. Would it be possible for you to shoot better than him? YES, if he were blindfolded! How can you hit a target you can’t see? Even worse, how can you hit a target you don’t even have!? You need to have GOALS in your life!”

Cartoon – Do It Now!

Here’s another piece from the 100 Day Challenge I did last year…

Embrace a Do It Now Philosophy!
The people who make things happen in this world value and share a similar sense of urgency. It’s my great desire to ignite a flame under your behind today…

Sometimes you need a rocket up your ass!

Sometimes you need a rocket up your ass!

..one that compels you to step up, to raise the bar, and astound yourself.
You must keep in mind that throughout this 100 Day Challenge, no matter how intelligent or capable you may be, if you don’t have a sense of urgency. Now is the time to start developing it.

Cartoon – The First Steps To Success!

January 27, 2009

Here’s an excerpt from Ryan Blair’s 100 Day Challenge – the cartoon is mine and doesn’t appear in the transcript…

We all know that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and the same holds true for the 100 Day Challenge.
The goal choices you make today set the pace (fast) as well as the tone (playing to win), and the actions you take today determine both your direction and destiny.
To ensure a good start, you must take that bold first step, you must identify three achievable goals and you must pursue victory throughout the day. You must start the day fast and finish the day strong.
You must have the conviction that the purpose of setting a goal must be to achieve it, as there is no purer form of success, no more exact and exacting test of what you are capable of than to seize every opportunity, and achieve everything you set out to do.
