I know that you want to be more successful in life and business. Everyone does. But what do most people do about it? Nothing. They sit back and take whatever they can get—which is usually nothing. They go to work at jobs they hate to bring in "money" – but have you ever noticed it's never really enough? There always seems to be more "month" left at the end of the "money."

And just about every person I've ever talked to would like to have more skills and success when it comes to owning their own business. But here's the interesting part: Most people won't go out and learn how to be successful in life and business. They just won't do it.

It's as if they had someone say to them when they were young: "You're a loser if you have to learn how to be successful" or "If you're not satisfied with working hard and struggling, then there's something wrong with you." Well I'm here to tell you that these ideas are donkey dust!

You weren't born knowing other skills like how to walk, how to speak English, or how to drive a car. These are basic skills that you learned when you needed them. Success in life and business is just another skill, and anyone can learn it if they want to.

For years, I was sick and tired of not being the successful, happy person I knew I could be. I was working at boring, mindless jobs that robbed me of my life and my happiness. I couldn't stand the idea that I was going to spend the rest of my life not being the person I knew I was supposed to be.

I went on a personal mission, and spent years reading and studying all of the books, tapes, and seminars on how to be successful with women and relationships. But the frustrating part was that most of what I learned was wrong—most of it simply didn't work when I tried it!

Have you ever looked at some of the 'success' books that are out there? Those books would be great—Except the don’t tell you how to get out of your own way!

All most books talk about is what to do after you're already successful. They don't tell you anything about how to get your foot off the brake to allow yourself to succeed in the first place. These books only work if you've already been pretty successful - they do almost nothing to teach you how to let yourself succeed in the first place!

Even worse, there are books out there that teach you to just "improve your attitude" and "think positive" – and you're sitting there going, "But I'm not letting myself succeed – how on Earth do you expect me to have a positive attitude?!"

The sad truth is that most people give up and never have the kind of success that they want in life or business —they give up and settle for a life that isn't what they really want—or worse—they settle for no life at all. It doesn’t have to be this way!

Author's Bio: 

On the night of October 20, 1997, a 30-year-old religious studies major named Noah St. John had an epiphany that changed his life. While attending a seminar, he suddenly realized the real, hidden reason so many smart, talented, motivated people stop themselves from success – and saw it had nothing to do with goal-setting, "motivation" or anything being taught in traditional success literature. That very night, with no formal education in business, Noah decided to form a company to teach people around the world the simple steps that remove the hidden barriers to success.
