Secret to Success

Posted by: Socrates Socratous on: May 8th, 2009

What is the secret to success?

How can you possibly succeed in
anything you desire?

You see people starting from a really
bad place and end up at the top.

You see people who succeed repeatedly in
almost everything they do (or so it appears)

But HOW is this possible?

I will tell you MY secret but first, does
the following sound a bit close to home?

 * I am never gonna succeed
 * This is cr*p
 * It doesnt work
 * Economy sucks
 * It’s been 1 month already & I’m not rich
 * all my friends have tried and failed
 * My mom said it’s a scam

 * blah blah and yada yada

I hear this every day and guess what…

it ALWAYS comes from people that aren’t
successful (yet) and they will NOT be
successful for as long as they continue
on this path.

Step 1. Feed your mind

Indulge on the good stuff
When you want to lose a few pounds, you go
on a diet. the concept is the same here.
Think of this step as a “mind diet”. It has
nothing to do with eating even though foods
can make a difference on how well you feel.

If you want to be successful, you got to
“feed” your mind with the RIGHT INFORMATION
that will help you achieve that goal.

You ve got to feed it with things like:

 * knowledge about the area you want to succeed
   (study the right information)

 * Positive thoughts and reaffirmations
   (DO NOT allow yourself to doubt your ability to
   get what you want)
   Here is a trick: if you catch your self thinking
   negatively, conciously tell yourself to switch to
   positive thinking. you will be amazed with the result

 * Key associations
   Pursue hanging out with like minded people
   Find individuals who are driven for success
   (better if they are more successful than you)
   and meet with them regularly. HINT: your
   current friends are most likely NOT in this group

 * Imagine
   Every day, take a few minutes to IMAGINE
   your life at success.
    – Where will you live,
    – what car will you drive,
    – who are your friends,
    – what charities will you be helping,
    – what kind of flowers will you have on the frond yard,
    – where will you travel to
    – etc

   BE Detailed. a great visualization
   technique is to make something called
   a “visionboard”. This is a board where
   you put images you cut out of magazines
   or other publications, of things, people or
   places that resemble your desired world

Stay away of the bad stuff

As with any diet, you got to AVOID certain
kinds of other information that will hinder your

 * Avoid people who bring you down.
   Quite often these are people close to you
   If it is very hard to completely avoid them,
   try to avoid conversations around your success
   Keep conversations amongs these people, around
   things THEY like. This will help raise the
   “positiveness” in the room
 * Avoid the news.
   News is… well … BAD news.
   You dont want to poison your mind with every
   bad thing that happens in the world. Trust
   me, you can LIVE better without that information.

 * avoid trying to reinvent the wheel.
   Almost always, someone has been there, done
   that. Try tapping into that knowledge instead
   of re-discovering it from scratch.

 * NEVER allow yourself to say you CAN’t
   Why? Because you CAN.
   YOU CAN, YOU CAN! Chisel that into your

Dieting is VERY SIMPLE. Eat less calories
than you burn. That’s IT. however most people
dont achieve their weight goals. WHY? because
they CHEAT. They are also in denial they do that.

Success is also like that. Everyone gives it
a shot. most people do NOT achieve it. Why?
Simple. They CHEAT. They dont stick to the
proper “Success Diet.”

STAY Motivated
Stay on TRACK

Nurture your mind for success and you WILL SUCCEED

Go get started.

Parter to Your Success,
-Socrates Socratous

    I agree whole heartedly.

    Hey Socrates,

    A great post and you’ve covered the very essence of how I live my life. The turning point for me was when I listened to The Secret after hearing so many leading marketers mention it.

    The Law of Attraction certainly works for me and even if you don’t believe in ‘it’ with that label, your tips will certainly work for everyone who follows them wholeheartedly without giving them a name.

    This is excellent advice. Negativity in our life is a destructing force. We should always stay positive and improve our mind.

  4. Caroleon 09 May 2009 at 5:29 am

    Great advice. It’s much easier to succeed when you get your head on straight. Then you have the motivation to get to work and make it happen.

    It’s not a magic pill, you still have to ‘do’ something. But your belief, attitude, and reasons why will make the jobe easier!

    Hi Socrates
    Your ideas are 100% correct… We accept it 100%….
    Good Luck

    I have enjoyed your bits of wisdoms regarding our awakening Consciounessthruout your blogs.

    I need your help regarding one of your recommended links for Affiliate Profits Blueprint item #5000 to get them to respond to my enquaries as to why, after I purchased item #5000 and not received, they ignored my emails.

    Thank you for your messages,

    Thank you for your comments so far. Keep them coming.

    Positivity is one thing (a very important one), but it is only part of the process. We need to continue to feed our minds with the RIGHT information regarding the type of success we want to achieve.

    Knowledge, Education, Studying the details of the particular area is also of great importance.

    Take weight loss for example. It is a goal. To achieve it, not only you got to keep positive, but also get educated as to how our body works, how many calories each different exercise burls, how many calories each food has, etc. Then, it becomes easier to make adjustments to diet and lifestyle and stick to your goal.

    If you want to build a successful online business, you not only need to keep positive, but also study the right material and educate your self on the subject.

    There is a greek proberb that goes something like this:

    “You ve got to move your own hand if you want God to help you”

    In other words, you cant just be wishing for something, or want something really bad, but also act upon it and help will come.

    Keep those comments coming

    Sorry about that.

    Please submit a ticket here:

    and put: ATTN: Socrates at the top. Include the ticket number of your previous request and I ll personally look into it for you


  9. Joseph Chmielewskion 09 May 2009 at 7:51 am

    Excellent commentary.

    I would like to see the issue of “focus” addressed in greater detail.

    How to finish one project, how to complete all the “never ending” details, how to stay on track when results are slow in coming.

    This should also include building a foundation for success, building a real business instead of racing after a quick buck, and how to fit purchases into that foundation.

    On the other side, there should be some caution about dealing with those “over-positive, highly successful people” who want your money.

    Being able to see through the copywriting tricks that the “gurus” employ to sell expensive (but unnecessary) products that you don’t have the business foundation to use would be a start.

    Learning to accept a dose of reality…that you might be one of the 97% of customers that “can’t, shouldn’t, won’t”…be able to use the masively-hyped product could increase your success focus.

    Thanks, Socrates, for the encouraging post. It’s so easy to get off track for some of us that posts like this are a real help.

    It was told by Students of napoleon Hill, that the time he first interviewed Andrew Carnegie, Andrew outlined a proposal to Hill and asked the young reporter if he would accept the offer. Unknown to Hill, Carnegie had a hidden stopwatch that if Hill would decide to go ahead and acept the proposal he had 60 seconds to make up his mind. Hill answered in 37 seconds …. yes he would … I shudder to think that Carnegie’s secrets would have been buried if Hill missed that fateful deadline or if he procrastinated in decided.

    Haanel was also criticized by a group of successful men who wanted the Master Key kept private and top secret and the Church also banned this work.

    So the Big secret is that how many of us are using all your talents…

    I would say 98 % of the human race use 2% of the talents … let me ask What would happen if they were inspired to find and utilize the other 98 % ?

    Thank you for asking me to look at “Secrets to Success” above. Agree, more or less, with what you have written with the exception of avoiding the news. Certainly you can be successful in your chosen are by doing so, but at a notable cost.

  15. saraon 12 May 2009 at 11:06 am

    thank,s too much

  16. inohon 16 May 2009 at 5:13 am

    you said the real stuffs.keep it up.

    High Socrates Socratous,

    I’m just beginning to try internet marketing… but I really like this posting.

    The hardest part for me is staying away from negative people, as at this time, I am bound to negative people because it is where I live and I can’t afford to move as of yet. Me and my sister share a home, and it’s a very negative environment. Anywho…I appreciate all the advice you give and also the motivation! I’ve been sharing motivational and positive aspirations for years…but only now feel I want to not only share this with these positives with the world, but also, get myself and my son out of the negative environment I’ve become increasingly disheartened about. Again, thanks for the continued inspiration…. It is truely genuine, something I rarely see in internet marketing.

    Peace, Light and Love to you and yours, CordieB.
