Well, as a group of Texan’s, we (at least most of us) are familiar with the Texas Two Step. Maybe we can’t do the dance, but – at least we’ve heard of it. For successful people there is a similar numerical equation that is the mantra for success folks. I’ll call it the Success Two Step (plus).
Now, the average person will find that take one step forward and end up taking two steps back. You hear excuse after excuse for why they don’t have successful results. Gas it too high, the economy is stagnant, money is tight, and the excuses go on and on. That is not the standard for success.
Successful people do what unsuccessful people don’t or won’t. Regardless of the situation, successful people are always moving forward – taking steps forward. Sure, we all find that circumstances or situations provide challenges. This is true for everyone. But, successful people view the challenge as an opportunity to find an effective solution and that is one key foundation for success.
So then next time you look in the mirror or hear yourself talk – ask yourself this, are you taking two-steps forward and one step back? As long as the success dance has more forward than back…you’ll find that regardless of circumstances your success will be assured.
