The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 339 – The Common Denominator of Success

In today’s episode I’m teaching on Albert E.N. Gray’s speech, “The Common Denominator of Success.” 

Most of us were taught that hard work is the secret to success. However, Gray points out that although hard work may be required—it’s not the real secret to success.

Gray says success lies in the fact that successful people “formed the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do.” The key word here is “habit.” Successful people are in the habit of doing things failures don’t like—and don’t want—to do.

“Men form the habits, and habits form futures. If you do not deliberately form good habits, then unconsciously you will form bad ones.” 

If you want to be great, you have to habitually do great things. You have to do the correct things over and over again. Once it’s a habit, we no longer have to think about doing it.

In this episode you’ll learn:

    • How to make success a habit
    • How we’re born to be a success, yet we’re programmed to be mediocre in life
    • The difference between what mediocre, normal people (or failures) do, and what successful people do
    • Why you’re not getting the results you want
    • The 4 main habits that bring about success business or work 
    • Why your “needs” will only push you so far, but your desires will keep pushing you long after your needs are satisfied
