3 Simple Sentences

Three Sentences For Getting Success
a. Know more than others
b. Work more than others
c. Expect less from others

William Shakespeare

3 Simple sentences, seems easy enough, so why isn't everyone successful?

Sometimes I laugh while watching CNN or any other news show and see "experts". The reason I laugh is because a significant event can happen and someone comes on tv and they put 'expert' beside their name, and I think how are they an expert when it is the first time it happened! How did experts become experts? Well some really do know just about everything on a topic, but many just know more than the average person. They do their homework. They read all they can on their chosen topic and poof they are an 'expert'.

If you want to be successful at anything, than become an expert in your chosen field, read, listen, learn, find a role model or mentor.

Work more than others. Who wants to do that? Aren't we all trying to figure out how to make more money and work less. Isn't that what get rich quick ideas are all about? People tired of working for someone dram of having their own company so they can choose their hours and work less...ha! Having your own business rarely mean that at least in the first 5 to 10 years. Your goal should not be to work less, but to work smarter. If success to you is moving up in your company, than work smarter, show initiative, take on challenges. Besides winning the lottery there are no lazy roads to success.

Expect less from others. Funny we can always spot the faults in others. Many expect others owe them. Some feel entitled, and become bitter and depressed when the world doesn't buy into that. A salesperson tries to make a sale, gets turned down, and they convince themselves that it is the external factors why they can never make a sale. Expect less from others and more from yourself. Nobody including friends and family are obligated to do what you want, to buy from you, hold your hand, agree with you. it would be nice though! Networking works the same way, the worst networkers are those who expect to get something rather than give!
