Success is Intentional

Yes, you can make your own success.
Yes, success is subjective.
Yes, success is intentional, regardless of how it is defined.

Matt Weinstein and Luke Barber in Gently Down the Stream writes that there are only four keys to success.  Stephen Covey espouses that there are 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.  Others in the personal development field assert their own numbers:  James Arthur Ray Harmonic Wealth, Deepak Chopra , Les Brown,  Oprah, Anthony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, or Michael Beckwith all make an assertion that there is a certain key to success.

I agree.

We all can make success intentional.  There are stories abound, and I make a practice to read at least one inspiring story a day, about people who exceed expectations and build their own success.  Secondly, I make a point to surround myself with achieving people. In my inner heart circle that are multiples who have made success their mantra.  All ages, all races-a diverse group of people who deliberate success.

One person I will highlight is Otis Marks II.  He was stricken with multiple sclerosis and like Montel Williams, is determined to live a quality, active successful life. I truly admire his will to live life.

Yes, your DNA is different, but your Direct Navigational Audacity is a shared commonality for success. In essence, you can boldly go wherever you want to go. You can and should create your own galaxy of success.

Make your DNA (Direct Navigational Audacity) bold. Steer your own success with intentional audacity.
Remember success, however you choose to measure it, is intentional.
Set your intentions.

How to set your intentions:

1. Clearly define your passion, determine what you want to do. Write down specific goals.
2. Clear out negativity. Surround yourself with positive, passionate people who will give truthful feedback.
3. Make a plan. Navigate each personal step you must take to audaciously reach your goal.
4. Be tenacious. Grab a bulldog hold on your plan. Get a mentor, clean up your finances, and work your plan.
5. Celebrate short-term incremental goal successes along the way.
6. Examine your progress. Consult with your mentor and other achievers to gain perspective about achievement.

These steps are easy to integrate into your success DNA plan. It takes discipline and an inner intention to persevere until you achieve success. You can join the other legions of successful people.

Make you plan work and work your plan.
People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply; by the lives they lead. ~James Baldwin

Tell me about your success. Write how you achieved success in your comments.
