The Biggest Challenge in Becoming Successful

What does it mean to be a successful person? This is a very important question with many different answers to the question depending on who you ask. I believe the mark of true success is being true to who you are no matter what others’ opinion may be. When reading Jeff Moore’s My Everyday Power Blog, I knew I’d found a definition for success that matches mine completely because I believe in order to be true to yourself (to truly know yourself) you have to know your own heart. With permission from Jeff, I am sharing his original blog with all of you. tlb

Everyday Power Blog


Is success all about what you know? Or is it, who you know? What role does perseverance play? How about integrity and commitment? What about guts? How about heart?
The most successful people in the world were not necessarily the smartest or the most educated, when they got started. Over time and with experience they might have become they best in their field – of course. But that’s that necessary to get started.
And it’s all about getting started!
What they do have, what we all have in us if we summon it – is heart.
Heart, meaning the intestinal fortitude to keep going when we have seen no results. The heart to keep going and keep believing even when we have run out of money, exhausted our resources and when people have let us down, again and again.
This is when our heart gets put to the test.
