These are secrets because though many seem to know, they don’t seem to understand.
Or could it be that they understand but it’s too hard to implement?
Whatever the case is; whatever is worth knowing is worth knowing well.
I’ve got my own ideas and you may have yours but why else do we share if we don’t really care?
I’ll make my illustrations as simple as I can and hope you enjoy it even if you don’t agree.
I hear people say things that some times may be true. Like “do what the man has done and you’ll get what he gets.”
How very true this is, it has it’s hidden sides. If you can do what swimmers do then you’ll get there results but won’t you first learn the tricks to be a swimmer too?

To start this class we’ll solve like maths
from known to unknown.
If we can’t tell what success is
we can at least tell it’s feel.
Some of us may know it’s looks
or be aqcuinted with it’s voice.
It’s not to me what it is to you
it’s that thing that we want.
Sometimes he’s a man at other times; woman.
It could just be a feeling or just some sort of name.
Success has three faces, I know them name by name.
As we proceed to the next , I’ll mention all the names.

1) Discovered Success:
as opposed to the name; it’s not stumbled upon.
One goes out of his way to make his own his own.
What you want may be rare, but been seen before.
In that case you’ll have to search and grab your catch for sure.
If it’s fame or to wipe shame, you know the path to take and if it’s wealth or fulfilment you just play by the rules.

2) Created Success:
this face of success is worn by few
those whose dreams no one could chew.
Never before have their choices been made and no one could tell from where those ideas came.
Their thoughts are new and so are their works.
We often call them innovators!
You know what you want; that’s your ‘success’ if it’s nowhere then you have to create it.
Your circumstances may be strange, your choice of stuffs nowhere to find then join the few ones who blaze the trail!

3) Become!
The third one’s name is hard to coin. We neither find it nor create it. The only way to it is to become it.
Becoming may be an achievement but achieving ain’t becoming; it’s something alltogether, difficult to explain.
Situations might not change with rescpect to process, they may just comply because of who you are.
When there is no way out, only a true success can come out undisarmed.
Not because he did it. Because that’s who he is!

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  1. Can’t a person be the best choice for an assignment; Emotionally stable, physically fit, have the temperament of a perfect negociator and be exceptionally eloquent?
