Are you successful? What does that word mean to you? Unlimited wealth, "toys" as far as the eye can see, or family gatherings at your cottage on the lake?
Success is a state of mind, and I would like to help you Succeed! Below are some dynamic belief steps to follow.
S – Start believing in yourself and what you do!
Starting=beginning. If you wouldn't have taken the risk and got on your bicycle for the first time, would you have the confidence that you do now as you mount your bike for a ride through town? This belief comes from within and turns your dreams and vision into reality!
U – Understand another's point of view.
You don't know it all, so don't appear to. Put yourself in their shoes and listen. Have empathy.
What does the other person want? What are they feeling? Block out your own feelings and the voice that has a response to their statements and truly "BE" with the one you are talking with. Don't interrupt! Have you ever thought up the perfect response, so witty and smart, that it burst out of your mouth, only to stop the sentence coming out of the other person's mouth. You missed them and possibly the sale or relationship.
Have you ever truly been understood? It is the best feeling in the world. When you put yourself aside to put the other person first, that is true sacrifice and success.
C – Confidence isn't a feeling, it is an action. You need to have it, even when you just don't feel like you can!
C – Collaborate , share your successes, be vulnerable and share your mistakes. Be real! You will become a people magnet. Surround yourself with people you admire. Look for like minded people, people who have what you want, who believe as you believe! Find out how they got to where they are and then do the same. Billionare Ross Perot paid millions to attract the brightest to his company. Be people smart.
E – Exercise your brain and body.
Read, read, read! Readers are leaders. Have you thought about that, it is true. The more you know, the more confident you feel and the more comfortable you feel collaborating with those who have what you want. Sound familiar?
Run, run, run! Keep your body in shape. Make a list of the people you admire, who have what you want? What do they look like? Do they exercise or take care of their outer body as well as their mind and soul?
E- Encourage others! Your friends, family, business partners all deserve to hear praise. Dig deep to find something they are good at or have done well, then say it, write it, sing a song to it, whatever, just acknowledge it to that other person!
D- Determine to be better than who you are and you'll be surprised at who you'll become! Use the bulldog determination like the tortoise and the Hare. Even the snail made it to the ark. Determine not to quit, creatively begin again and again, and again!
How hard are you going to work? How bad do you want it! It isn't that hard, just…
Start believing in yourself.
Understand another's point of view.
Confidence – do it and then feel it!
Collaborate with those who have what you want.
Exercise your mind, body and soul.
Determine to be better than who you are and you'll be surprised at who you'll become –

"They need to look interested and show some desire. If you don't want to be here, go home," Tim Bresnan remarked.
A lot was expected from the team India before this test match as the # 1 spot was on stake on the match. But nothing different than the last two test matches has happened in this test match too so far. England have dominated the all three days of play in bowling and then batting as well scoring more than 700. India have lost its first wicket again without scoring as Virender Sehwag again went on zero. No doubt India have been performing poorly in the series so far and England have outplayed them in every field but the question arises here is that does this give anybody the authority to speak and write cheap things about them.
The reason why this has been said is because of the British media writing cheap and irresponsible things about the Indian team and even compared them with the sheepdogs. As if that wasn’t enough for them, the reputed news paper wrote that Indian team is even worse than the dogs and sheepish India have gone to the dogs with torrid field day. \
England former cricketer and captain Michael Vaughan also peeped into the matter and gave his opinion on the performance of Indian Cricket team saying that India have failed to resist against the English Cricketers. Former West Indian cricket Michael Holding also said that even England team would have not enjoyed this series and wouldn’t have thought that the road to being number 1 would be so easy. Many former English cricketers commented that India did not deserve to be the at the top and only look good on paper. Former England captain Nasser Hussain said that tourist India are little better than a county attack.
And one more controversial comment from the current player Ravi Bopara as he said that people should stop worshipping Sachin Tendulkar now. Another objectionable comment was on the Rahul Dravid that says, “Now we know why Rahul Dravid is called The Wall. It’s because balls bounce off him”. Well after having said that he just got out for some score of fewer than ten only. And after targeting VVS Laxman, the British media targeted Virender Sehwag for the serious allegation of ball tampering. If Sehwag really did that then how come 35 cameras on the stadium and the umpires, match referee couldn’t catch that act.
Really after having watched all this on TV and internet, this irresponsible behaviour of the British media and former cricketers is really disappointing and unexpected. England has always been the best place to play cricket and the behaviour of the local audience has been the inspiration for the other countries as well. The audience of England is said to be the audience that really understands the game of cricket and respect all cricketers. But recent incidents will certainly affect the reputation of England among all cricketing nations, India in particular.
Indian team needs to perform better and answer all these arrogance with the way they have been doing so far that is just concentrating on playing good cricket. That’s what you expect in the game what is called as a gentlemen’s game.
Everyone would agree that England are playing their best cricket ever, but they should know one basic etiquette to be humble when on rise. England must not forget that its not so long that England lost to Australia 5-0 and England has not won a test series with India since 1996. So British media should behave more responsibly and avoid such childish things of arrogance.
An Inspirational video for all. Do Not Miss it.
I think it is a great video full of life lessons. I encourage you to watch it and question everything about your life again. What you might consider “bad” might not be as “bad” as you think!
Thanks Nick!.. for sharing your message with the world and making us “THINK AGAIN”.
