Dave’s Diary: 3 Keys to Success
Tomorrow is new day in America. No matter which party wins, it’s time to get to work and search for succes
s. Success may be easier to come by under one administration than another but elephants and donkeys aside, according to Steven Scott author of “Mentored By A Millionaire”, there are THREE things you need to propel you down the road of success.
• A mentor. No one in the history of the world has ever achieved real success without a mentor. That’s according to Steven Scott who has studied the subject of success. He says in all his research he has yet to find any successful person who could not name a mentor during some portion of their professional life.
• Creative persistence. Emphasis on the word “creative.” Creative persistence is not hitting a brick wall and getting up and hitting it again. Creative persistence is hitting it once and realizing you have to find another way around it.
• Emotional word pictures. When you can communicate your ideas using emotional word pictures, people buy in to your ideas more easily. Ronald Reagan was a master at this. A great example was when he called the Soviet Union an “evil empire” shortly after the Star Wars movie came out. Instead of giving a long speech – he simply painted the word picture by using the phrase “evil empire.” Everyone got it.
