The Key to the Success

Key to SuccessWhile we’re doing opinion pieces…. There’s nothing scientific about anyone’s climb to the top. Well, maybe there is, but that just says that they’re boring.

I’m referring to that certain “Je ne sais quoi” that separates the men from the boys, the ladies from the girls, the stars from the lumps of coal. Read any of the top motivational authors and they’ll say that success ranges from positive thinking, to positioning yourself in the right field that utilizes your assets, to downright luck.

I have a number of thoughts of my own and some are quite esoteric.dele-preparation-classes Beyond those, I’m spilling the beans on one of the most underrated components of success: preparation.

That’s right, girl scout girlfriends: be prepared.

Opportunity is going to be knocking at your door at least once a day and you must be ready. There’s no two ways about it.

Think ahead.

winning-chess-requires-thinking-ahead1This means from the simplest to the most complex matter: lay your clothes out the night before, from top to bottom, shoes and accessories. Have your briefcase, purse, or even lunchbox stocked and ready to go. The phone, i-Pad, computer – charged and ready to go. Appointments lined up. Proposals ready to be Skyped, conferenced, e-mailed, or presented in printed and bound copies. Pens full of ink and ready to sign.

For those at home and raising children, your meals are prepped and homework checked. A list of groceries, dinner parties, doctors’ appointments. Tasks broken down into manageable chunks.

You’re ready and can handle most everything. Think and consider the what ifs of life. How will you respond?

After all, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

So, be ready. Good things are coming your way!
