Pretty much everybody would like to know the “secret” for success. The one thing that they have to get right, and THEN, success will arrive.
But thinking this way assumes that there is almost a mystical, magical factor that makes you successful. Something that, when it reveals itself, it will happen. Things are placed outside of our locust of control. Once we “find out” what is what’s needed, we’ll just do that, and boom! Under this assumption, the key factor to success, is not even following the instructions, is the secret!
Instead of success depending on a secret, how about if we assume that success has a cost? That there are things we have to do, time and money we have to invest. Hours we have to put in that we’ll never get back, that will make for our success.
Sure, there is still a lot to figure out, but no one is “hiding a secret” from you. And everything will reveal itself in the doing.
There is no secret for success. There is always a cost though.
