Brian Tracy’s Wisdom On Success

Brian Tracy's Wisdom On Success

Brian Tracy shares his wisdom on success with Vic Johnson, the interview includes information on goal setting, money, motivation and life. Use this information to elevate your life by implementing it so that you can rise to a whole new level.

“Brian, you have been a student of success for over 40 years, and you’ve written that success is predictable. What do you mean by success is predictable? And if I’m someone seeking that what are some of the key things I need to be, doing, and looking out for?”

“Well, if you go into the kitchen to cook a dish and the very first thing you get is a recipe and you follow the recipe and you work with the recipe, eventually you’ll master that dish. Once you’ve mastered it and made it a few times you can make the dish over and over again and you’ll remember the recipe and you don’t have to keep going back to the recipe book.”

“Now if somebody says wow that is really delicious, you don’t say it’s a miracle, like something out of voodoo, no, you just followed a proven recipe that had been worked out by people before you. And that’s basically the secret of success.”

“If you want to be successful in starting a business then you study what people have learned. And everything that people have learned they’ve written down or shared in seminars or put onto audio programs.”

“I learned this from a very wise man named Kop Kopmeir who spent more than 50 years studying success and he had developed more than 1000 success principles that he had derived out of 6000 books. And when I met him I asked him the question you would ask, of all these thousand principles, which is the most important principle of all? And he said Brain it’s simple: Use proven success methods, learn from the experts, you’ll never live long enough to learn it all for yourself.”

“Successful people are those who learn from others who’ve gone before them, unsuccessful people try to make it all up. Like a cook going into the kitchen taking ingredients out of the cupboard, throwing them all into a bowl, wondering why it doesn’t taste good.”

“The people in the top 20% follow proven success principles, proven recipes, proven formulas, proven combinations, and they just do them over and over again until they master them, then they can do more and more of them, faster and faster, easier and easier at a higher level of quality. And all that translates into greater results.”

“Find the success recipe from the right people.”

“We are where we are and what we are because of the choices and decisions that we have made in the past.”

“So the starting point of changing our life is to make new choices and decisions which requires that we stop making old choices and decisions that are not helping us, in other words, to get into something new, you’ve got to get out of something old. To start associating with positive people you’ve got to stop associating with people who are not helping you. And in many cases, people realize they’re going to have to break off old friendships, break out of relationships, quit jobs, stop associating with negative family members who are constantly critical. You’re going to have to reorient yourself to more positive people.”

“Now the third principle that’s so important is this, there’s a law of attraction in the universe that says that you attract into your life people and circumstances in harmony with your own thinking. So if you start to read really good material, set goals, commit to your own personal development, strive to become good at what you’re doing, listen to positive audio programs, and associate with positive people. What happens is you set up a force field of energy, that is invisible but it attracts into your life people, circumstances, possibilities, opportunities, that would not have been there in the absence of your own changed thinking.”

“So all 3 conspire, stop making bad decisions, start making good decisions, start associating with people who encourage, who are in harmony with what you think, and then trust to this law of attraction to bring you the right people into your life.”

“The natural tendency when we hear or learn something great is that we want to convince everybody else of it. The very best thing is that you must teach men at the school of example for they will learn it no other. So what you need to do is be an example. Be an example for an extended period of time. Give yourself two, three months, maybe a year of being the new person.”

“In the main, people don’t change, you can change, and you’ll find it much easier to change if you’re with positive people, very hard to change with people who don’t want you to change, who want you to be the person that you were. But in the main, people don’t change, so sooner or later on in life, you’re often going to have to make some hard choices.”

“In the short term, as Gandhi said; Be the change you want to see in the world. Be the kind of person that you want to see. And if that does not bring people around the be prepared to go to the next step, be prepared to walk away.”

“If you write a goal down, it increases your chances of success by 10 times.”

“The next biggest thing in the process of goal setting. There’s a process that has made more people rich than any other single process of goal achieving, and it is to take your major goal and structure it as a question. If your goal is to make $100,000k per year, you would write: How can I earn $100,000k in the next 12 months? Now that’s an open-ended question. And then you discipline yourself to write 20 answers to the question. The 20 answers are all the different things you can think of to earn $100,000k. Whatever you can think of, write it down, but force yourself to write at least 20 answers to the question.”

“The 20 question method, called MindStorming, it forces you to dig deep deep into your mind, where you will find all your answers. And often it’s the 20th answer that is the breakthrough. Sometimes it’s the most obvious answers we overlook.”

“This is one of the biggest of all challenges, it’s procrastinating on starting on a major goal, and the way that you overcome it, one of many ways, is you break the goal down into as many small steps as you possibly can, you make a list of every single step that you’re going to have to take to achieve the goal. Henry Ford said; The biggest tasks in the world can be accomplished if broken down into enough small steps. Anc once you’ve broken it down into small enough steps just do one step. Do one thing at a time, and maybe the next day you do just one more thing.”

“What happens within the mind is there is a natural momentum, once you get into the rhythm you start to move forward and pretty soon you’re doing the next step, and the next step, and the next step, and so on.”

5 Great Pointers On Achieving Success 

Follow Your Passion

Success does not come overnight, it takes a lot of hard work and passion to reach the desired goal and dream. It requires strong dedication, hard work, constant improvement, and sometimes luck. If you are not doing what you love, then you are bound to give up and fail. Only those who have a great passion for something they love, will continue, and strive hard to move on and achieve greatness. It should be something you are willing to sacrifice and dedicate your life to. Every day, every week, and every hour of the day should be dedicated to achieving your goals and dreams. 

Find The Correct Balance

Life is all about finding the right balance. When you find the right balance, only then will you see success around you and within you. Balance your time, spend time with your family and friends. Allocate time to achieving your goals and targets. Look after your health, exercise, and eat well. Life is all about finding a balance. Do not sacrifice one thing for another. It is important to find the right balance in life.  

Establish A Routine

Routines are vital when you are trying to succeed. We are taught from a young age the importance of keeping a good routine in life because without a routine you will be a mess and it will become harder for you to do well in achieving your goals and targets. For example, people who have a job, working for a company, these companies have strict routines in place. The reason for this is so that the company performs well and becomes more successful. Even in our daily lives, without routine we will be all over the place. It is proven that a person who has no routine in life, is a person who is very lazy, a time waster and someone who has no goals and ambition in life. Therefore, we should strive to have good routines in our life, as this will lead us to have a better life. 

Learn From Your Mistakes

Successful people have failed many times. It is inevitable unless you are an extremely lucky person, where everything works out for you. But, when starting off, the first few steps are the hardest. Many people who have achieved great things have failed on many occasions. There are many obstacles in front of you that blocks you from reaching the next stage of success. For example, there are many entrepreneurs who have failed in many businesses, until that one business that has made them successful. Without failures and mistakes, we as humans will never learn, therefore make as many mistakes as you can, as these mistakes will lead you to gain more experience and knowledge in achieving your goals and dreams. 

Find Support And Resources

Find yourself a mentor, you need someone who can point you in the right direction to achieve greatness. With the correct help and support, you can achieve even better than you would do by yourself. If a mentor is not available, try reaching out to others in your field. Find people who have already achieved what you plan to achieve, and try and get as much information from them as possible so that you can reach that level of success one day. Networking is important to become successful and bigger in what you are trying to accomplish. Reaching out to people will allow you to grow further. It will allow you to find out information that you did not even know you needed. Therefore, speaking out and finding the right support and resources will push you to the next level. 


To summarize, to achieve success, you must be wise and bold. A person who does not try and is lazy in life will go nowhere. You cannot just dream and expect everything to fall perfectly in front of you. You must work hard to get results. We should analyze those who have achieved greatness, by following in their footsteps. Only then can we crawl, walk, and then achieve our own success. Remember, success does not come overnight, it begins with baby steps, and when you are established, you will see the greatest successes.

How I Eat For Free Using Instagram



How I Eat For Free Using Instagram

To start eating for free, you need to have a popular Instagram account that will grab the attention of the restaurants you plan to reach out to.

Having an account that is well put together and the pictures being posted on Instagram posts being of high quality, and building visual interest is very important.

When reaching out to the restaurants, it’s important that you share how your influence and connection with your followers can benefit the restaurant and the food that they are preparing.

A restaurant in Melbourne said that after it was shared on the restaurant gained popularity and it’s income greatly increased following the Instagram post.

Reaching out to restaurants is also ideal for eating for free anywhere you want to go. After getting an invitation to eat at restaurants it is extremely important to reach out after and thank the person or people who made it possible.

This is a way to show the people you are dealing with that they know you are serious and will reach out again in the future because of it. Building a relationship after initially getting an invitation to eat at a place is ideal for making yourself known and making more connections with the people and friends that they work with.

Part of the deal you make with the restaurants is that you’ll post jaw-dropping images or videos of their foods, ones that will grab the attention of followers who can potentially visit their restaurant to get a bite to eat. This is exactly what I do – Sean Kelly of @delicious on Instagram.

I share this content which helps bring exposure of restaurants to my followers and allows me to eat for free on a consistent basis. When I eat at all these different restaurants, neighboring restaurants see the business increase and they want the same.

Not only do I benefit the business that I am helping, but I am also promoting my services – showing other businesses that I can perform in the social media world.

A large part of becoming a successful influencer is being able to prove yourself. If you promise a business that you’ll bring in ‘X’ amount of business from your account, you should live up to it or go over that amount.

Being able to show other client’s proof that you will live up to your business quota or bring in more, in the end that will bring in even more clients for them and gain more people for you to work with.

Same Game, New Look – Sports Highlights



Same Game, New Look - Sports Highlights

It’s become a tradition. Sit down, turn the TV on and watch the game. Only the lucky few are able to go see them in person. Sports have been around for centuries, and as time progressed and their popularity increased, fan bases grew exponentially. As the media began to cover sports, few stations soon gained a monopoly. These became the main places to get all your sport news.

Up until recently, the opinions shared about sports were largely those of mainstream reviewers. As the popularity of social media services such as Instagram and YouTube increases, more people are given the opportunity to make their opinions known. One person whose opinion has gained much more traction is Daniel Padron, the face behind @sportshighlights on Instagram.

I had the opportunity to meet Daniel Padron and find out how he has managed to be heard in such a dominated field. “I came up with the idea when Instagram first started allowing videos rather than just pictures. I would see countless highlights every night watching games during the Big 3 era and I believe that inspired me to start posting highlights” Padron explained.

What started off as a fun pastime has now grown into an audience of 1.7 Million, that continues to increase by the thousands daily. “I didn’t know if people would like or care about my opinion when I started, but I always wanted to be an analyst or reporter for ESPN, so I just gave it a shot” he explained.

Padron started with just his friends following him, however as people began liking, commenting, and tagging others on his posts, his page gained popularity. The engagement he received only helped his posts be seen more. Padron was not only pleasantly surprised to see that many people agreed with his opinions; he was also interested in how people disagreed. This line of direct communication from Padron to his audience separated him from analysts on TV.

Although people can still give their opinions to mainstream reporters, @sportshighlights works to make it a more immersive experience. For instance, if Daniel sees that many people are interested in a particular team or player, he is able to make an effort to post more about it.

Although the experience is slightly more tailored, all teams are reported. One of the best qualities about @sportshighlights is that it had created a medium through which fans from all over the world can exchange opinions and discuss games. With a quick read through the comments, a person is able to see the same highlight through multiple points of views. This feature alone is what draws many audience members in.

Despite the fact that the same mainstream reporters and analysts are featured on TV, @sportshighlights has given sports fans a whole new experience. With the newfound ability to comment and discuss plays with anyone, Sports Highlights has successfully brought fans together and given the same game a fresh new look.
