In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.

Your own success

The most reliable way to enjoy success is to already be successful. Think about it. Those who are already successful have many distinct advantages. They are experienced at achieving what they set out to achieve. They have the confidence that comes from building one success on top of another. They have the knowledge, the contacts and a reputation that opens doors for them.

So how do you get yourself into that position? The answer is obvious, and yet so many people fail to see it. The answer is to learn from those who have already achieved the kind of success you desire.

Never in the history of the world has there been a better opportunity for learning from others than there is right now. We live in a world that is overflowing with in-depth information. If you can’t find at least a dozen detailed success stories in your field of endeavor, you’re not really looking.

Rather than envy others for their success, learn from them and create a success story of your very own.

— Ralph Marston
