Success is a natural consequence

“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.” Jim Rohn

How many times have we heard someone ask, “what’s the secret to their success?” It’s easy to believe that success is due to some magical secret ingredient, but success is actually a natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals. Ponder that for a moment…success is a natural outcome…when we consistently apply the basics. Let’s say we want to lose weight. The basic actions of losing weight are being mindful of what we eat and getting enough physical activity every day. Will success come as fast as we want it? Probably not. But there is no magical pill that will make us lose weight faster than is biologically possible. Just like there is no magical pill that can fix a struggling relationship overnight; what can improve the relationship is consistently applying the basics of healthy communication every day. So what are the basic fundamentals of your success?
