[Tweet “Successful people do the same things. They think the same way. #success”]
There is a little-known ongoing research of America’s most successful people. Some people have dedicated their lives to this study. I call these people success gurus. They have found that successful people tend to do the same things. They think the same way. Their values, beliefs, and attitudes are similar. Even their parents tend to parent in the same way.
These similarities are called the commonalities of success. It is these commonalities that you want to teach your children. When you do this, you are infusing the cream of America’s most successful people into your children.
The commonalities of success have been best communicated to the people via the speaker’s platform. Some of the greatest speakers have been Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Bob Richards, and Norman Vincent Peale. The trouble is less than 1% of the American people have been lucky enough to be exposed to these speakers.
There is a master list of positive beliefs in chapter 1 of my book, Success for Your Children. This list originated from all the great speakers I have heard over the years. I have gleaned off the best and most useable wisdom tips and organized them in a format that is useable by anyone. I consider this list to be pure gold. It is a great list for parents to choose from.
