I interviewed Brian K Wright, the host of Success Profiles Radio, where he interviews some of the most successful people in the personal development world, including such names as Darren Hardy, Jack Canfield, and Dr. John Demartini. In our interview together, he shared with me the highlights of these interviews and the powerful lessons he has learned. Here are a few of the takeaways that I got from my interview with Brian.
Success is not an overnight thing. People look at the success of people like Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk or Darren Hardy and forget about the years of struggle, adversity, and work that goes into creating worldwide success. Whether it’s family, business, finances or health, we all deal with problems in life and these successful people are really normal just like you and me. What sets them apart is their willingness to work through the tough times and the ability to focus on their vision relentlessly.
They know exactly what their “why” is. This is huge because your “why” is your motivation to move forward. The most successful people out there are crystal clear on what it is they are after and as a result, they are able to attain it almost every time. How are you supposed to hit the target if you don’t know exactly what the target is? How will you know you’ve hit it? Why would you keep going when you get hit if you don’t even know why you are doing it in the first place? Be very intentional about the way you live your life.
They immerse themselves in success. Successful people know that in order to create and sustain success you need to be in an environment that supports and rewards successful behavior. That means that you need to surround yourself with people who are at a higher level than you or who support you and challenge you to grow. You need to immerse yourself in content that empowers you to succeed, including the media you watch, the things you read or the music you listen to. They have extreme attention to detail and know that their environment must be setting them up to win.
