I was reading a great book by Rich DeVos a few weeks ago and learned about his ‘three A’s for success‘. His book ‘Ten Powerful Phrases for Positive People‘ lead me to learn about something he taught which is how action stems from the right attitude but it needs the right atmosphere to grow.
That got me thinking…A lot.
First off, I completely agree with his assessment. We always hear that action needs to be taken if we are to grow and become successful. However it starts way before we even take our first step.
You see, I’ve caught a lot of flack for saying this over the years but…When we fill our minds with garbage and junk, we cannot even begin to grow. For example, what are you planning on doing tonight?
Most people will watch the evening news, surf a few sites, check the latest gossip on Facebook and then sit in front of the TV and watch re-runs of Jerry Springer for an hour or two. That’s just in your own home…Now ask yourself who you associate with and what they will be doing or saying tonight as well…
If that’s your evening plans, that’s similar to what they will be doing as well. The atmosphere for growth isn’t there! You have to have the right environment for growth to take place.
Why not read a book? Watch a live training seminar? Write a blog post?
Do something that will nurture and help GROW the right attitude so that you start taking positive action steps.
Hey look! It’s your life and who am I to suggest how you spend your evenings…But if you aren’t happy with your current situation or online income…Take a good look at who you surround yourself with and what you do with your spare time…Huge clues are right in front of you.
Yes, we need to take action. Yes we need to develop the right attitude. But it all starts, in my opinion, with the atmosphere. With the environment you are in. And we can change it…Fill your mind with good stuff and watch how your life changes almost immediately.
Action, Attitude, Atmosphere….A solid plan for success!
