Brian Tracy’s Top 10 Rules For Success



Brian Tracy's Top 10 Rules For Success

Brian Tracy is a Canadian-born American motivational public speaker and self-development author. He is the author of over 70 books. His popular books are Earn What You’re Really Worth, Eat That Frog and The Psychology of Achievement. Brian shares his top ten rules for success. Use this information to take your life to a whole new level.

1. “Don’t Live On ‘Someday Isle’.”

Many people have great dreams and plans that they want to accomplish but then they take a vacation on ‘Someday Isle’, 80% of the population lives on ‘Someday Isle’. If you want to be a great success there’s one simple rule, it’s to vote yourself off the island for life. If you decide you’re going to do something, do it. There’s one major difference between successful people and unsuccessful people, successful people launch, they start, they get on with it, they just do it. Unsuccessful people get the same ideas and the same information but they’ve always got an excuse for not starting.”

2. “Learn From The Experts.”

“If you want to be successful in starting a business then you study what people have learned and everything people have learned they’ve written down or shared in seminars or put onto audio programs. The key principle is to use proven success methods, learn from the experts. Successful people are those that learn from others that have gone before them, unsuccessful people try to make it all up. Successful people follow proven formulas and proven combinations, they do them over and over again until they master them and all that translates into greater results.”

3. “Find Your Life Purpose.”

“Make a list of 10 goals that you would like to accomplish in the next year and ask yourself, ‘If I could only accomplish one goal on this list which one goal would have the greatest positive impact on my life?’. It could be a spirituality, health, wealth, or relationship goal. Make that the major definite purpose of your life, and make it the central organizing principle of your life.”

4. “Manage Your Time.”

“Time management is the sun and everything that you do is the planets in orbit. Everything we do in life revolves around time because time is life, time is the substance of our life, the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your time management. Everything we have or are or ever will be will be a direct result of how we use our time and the wonderful thing is that we’re always free to choose how we use our time.”

5. “Structure Your Goals As Questions.”

“There’s a process which has made more people rich than any other single process of goals achieved and it’s to take your major goal and structure it as a question. Write it as an open-ended question e.g How can I make 10 million dollars in the next 12 months? following that you discipline yourself to write 20 answers to the question. Write down everything you can think of, write at least 20 answers, this process of mind-storming forces you to dig deep deep into your mind where you will find all your answers. The answers may be obvious but it’s the most obvious answers that we overlook.”

6. “Think Rich.”

“The starting point of becoming a millionaire is to remember the greatest discovery of all of human life, which is that you become what you think about most of the time. If you sincerely want to be rich, to achieve all your financial goals, and to retire as a self-made millionaire, one of the smartest things you can do is to develop the habits of thinking and acting that enabled others to become self-made millionaires. Most people worry about lack and poverty and they wonder why they’re flourishing financially because they’re thinking about poverty and lack rather than prosperity and abundance. All habits are learnable by practice and repetition, you can program yourself to think like self-made millionaires, and remember it has to start on the inside before it ever comes true on the outside.”

7. “Don’t Quit.”

“Here’s an important point, nothing works the first time. I would try a new idea five or ten times before I pass judgment on it. I would not just quit like most people do and that changed my whole life. That was the turning point of my life. You have to try new things to get new results. If you try only two things can happen, you either succeed or learn. You cannot lose by taking action, you can only lose by not taking action.”

8. “Be An Example.”

“Teach people at the school of example for they will learn it no other. Be an example and be an example for an extended period of time. Give yourself two to three months maybe a year of being a new person. In the main people don’t change and you’ll find it much easier to change if you’re with positive people and it’s hard to change with people who don’t want you to change and who want you to be the person you were, sooner or later you’re going to have to make some hard choices. Be the change you want to see in the world.”

9. “Form Good Habits.”

“95% of everything you do is the result of habit. So the rule is, form good habits and make them your masters rather than allowing bad habits to form. Good habits are hard to form but easy to live with. Bad habits are easy to form but bad to live with. All habits are learned and can be unlearned, you don’t actually unlearn a habit you simply replace a bad habit with a good habit that has more powerful power and impact. And how do you develop a habit, through repetition. Almost everything you do from the time you get up in the morning is habit. So start to think about yourself, what would be the best habits to have?”

10. “Never Give Up On Your Dreams.”

“Good question to ask, what age should one give up on their dreams? Never. You’re only as young or old as your dreams. As long as you still have dreams, visions, and goals they keep you young. It’s an amazing thing and they keep you going. So never give up on your dreams.”
