Success is defined as the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted: they attributed their success in business to hard work. The gaining of fame or prosperity.
Your definition may be different but the essence of success for each person is attaining something they desire. Your success may be defined by wealth, peace of mind, or a sense of joy. Hopefully you will achieve all three.

The seven secrets of success will help you achieve your success, no matter how you define it.

Robert Sculler:
“What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail?”

These seven steps, when mastered, will lead you to the attainment of all your dreams and goals. You cannot fail.
You need to master these seven steps to be successful in any business and in your daily living are seven fields. If you gain mastery of these steps, there is nothing you can’t achieve.

Time Management - The first step you need to master is the art of managing your weekly 168 hours. Manage your time instead of allowing time to manage you.
If you learn to manage the hours in your day based on your peak time and prioritizing each step, you can accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible.

Attitude Adjustment - The second step is to learn how to control and adjust your attitude. Chances are your attitude could use some improvement. You control your attitude by controlling your thinking. A positive attitude is a winning attitude. Success and attitude must be married in your new success plan.

Goal Setting - The third step is to learn how to write achievable goals.
No successful person ever got that way without setting goals. Set goals and you will be a success.

Goals must be:
Written - Goals not written are daydreams
Attainable - You must believe you can reach your goals
Specific - Goals must be measurable
Timed - Set a definite time to reach your goals
Rewardable - Always have a reward for reaching a goal

Personal Inventory - The fourth step is to clean up the wreckage of your past. Since success starts with you, you won’t go far until you clean your own house. A thorough personal inventory will clear the path to success.
Without this step you will always struggle for success.

Amends - The fifth step is to make an amends to all persons you have harmed. This is a vital step to once and forever clear any baggage of blame and resentment you might be carrying.
The clearing that comes from this vital step opens the flood gates of creativity, prosperity, and joy of living.

Journaling - Start step six today by doing one of the things that all successful people do; begin the practice of daily journaling. Journaling helps you focus and stay on target. It helps you reach your goals faster.

Meditation- The seventh step is to make time each day for quiet meditation. It need not be formal or complicated. Simply set aside 10 or 15 minutes each day. Go somewhere where you can be quiet and meditate on you. This is a great time to read something motivational, spiritual or religious. Read an inspirational message, then spend a few minutes contemplating what you’ve read.
Why the bother with all this? Because you can’t progress until you change.

Find out who you are.
When’s the best time to begin these steps? Right now; Begin today.
