Success Planning

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position
that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”

Booker T Washington

There’s a fine line between success and failure. On one hand you have to have some serious faith and guts to step out of the box of comfort and do your own thing – win, lose or fail, this is apart of the success process. On the other hand you have – the fail of wisdom and rationality, the fail of caution and perfect timing should you step out on your own under-educated to the traps and pitfalls that are sure to meet you on your journey. So where are you on the line?

I was reading FORBES magazine yesterday and came upon an article titled: “12 Things All Successful People Do“, and think it’s the perfect insert to help you steady your successful course. The piece starts out by saying,

This is due to the fact that successful individuals aren’t just born — there’s a lot more that goes into the equation. Through my experience, I’ve found those who are highly successful have a lot more in common than we may think.

On the hunt for success? Here are some habits to take note of:

1. Boldly fail.
2. Set goals.
3. It’s not always about luck.
4. Carefully track your progress.
5. Don’t wait to act.
6. Connect the dots.
7. Harness your confidence.
8. Commit.
9. Be alert.
10. Persevere.
11. Communicate like a pro.
12. Display humility.

It’s an easy list. Right? I know what you must be saying, “Well thanks Qui, for expounding on each bullet point!” To that, I’d like to say, “You’re welcomed,” then I’d like to promptly share this link:

The link will explain it all, in far greater detail, so enjoy!


While you’re researching your course, I’d like to put this in your ear,
Success is for you. There’s nothing to fear.

My brother is an athletic Coach, and he’s always one to say,
You can not hit the ball – if you don’t step-up to the plate.”

You control your destiny and your fate. Go after it in full.
Start today. Get it out of the way; “Time is non-refundable.”

Coach Joe G said that too! Coach Joe G is my little brother.
We are linked to success by our choices and not our father and mother.

Blood is thicker than water, but knowledge rules the day.
If you are a go-getter in your field, adjust the 12 Things on your plate.

There’s a fine line between success and failure, as stated by Booker T. Washintgon,
I’m Qui 
Covering 4×3 on my own terms in success and fun! I bar none!!!
