Success Insights: It's not for everyone

Enjoy these thoughts on the topic of success. You don't need to agree. But it might be good to at least reflect on these thoughts.

Maturity is the result of experience, pain and reflection. If you are not yet mature enough – at least one of those is lacking.

Maturity is not a position. It is not an age. Maturity is a process. You will never be fully mature. You can only be on the maturity line.

The one thing that we all have in common is pain. Yet each of our pains is different. I might not understand your pain and you might not appreciate mine. Doesn’t that make us more alike than different?

Many people misunderstand the concept of balance. It doesn’t mean that your life should be balanced. It means that if you want more of one thing you must give up something else. It’s never equal and never balanced. It is give and take.

We often ask children, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” But we neglect to ask, “What are you willing to give up for that?”

Wisdom is not built on information. Wisdom is the result of questioning and reflection.

Confidence is not about knowing everything. Confidence is about being comfortable with not knowing what will happen next.

The best conversationalists ask good questions and listen.

Anybody can answer a good question. It takes a thoughtful person to ask a good question. When was the last time that someone said to you, “That’s a good question.”? Perhaps you need to work on your questions.

Simple is not the same as easy. Many people mistakenly equate the two and than become disappointed when simple is not easy.

Running a marathon is simple. First you move the left foot and then you move the right foot. Simple but not easy – because you need to do it 30,000 times.

The more challenging the obstacle the simpler your strategy needs to be.

Success is the result of doing little things consistently well over time.
