Success was never meant to be a singular endeavor, a solely independent exercise. You must learn to interact with, share your experiences with, and open up to others around you. Within those very moments of interaction lies your happiness, and your success.

How many successful people – from all disciplines – have you interacted with today? Even if you were wildly successful, being it all by yourself would be pretty lonely. You obviously would not be happy (with no one else around, how would you know?).

Have you ever seen a football team get all the way to the Ninety-Nine yard line, the quarterback then gives the ball to the other team and tells the players, “That's a pretty good run for this time, we'll hit it again later.”?
Of course not. If anything, success was close enough for them to taste. So they dug in a little bit more, played a little bit harder, and gave it all the effort they could, just to go one yard.

When your success takes a turn to another direction, you'll notice a pleasant surprise – it get's easier! It may be that you know what to do, how to do it, and what steps are necessary to follow your new success path.
Or, it may be that this time around you are not scared, or hesitant, or even preventative in your actions.

A long time ago a guy by the name of Jeff Bezos tried a little experiment. He purposed to start an internet marketing company. To do that he wanted to set up a test – to sell a popular, in demand product, on the internet, and then fulfill the orders and realize a profit.
He decided on books as the product, and so Amazon was born. Obviously the business concept worked, and Amazon now sells so much more than books. The experiment was a success, and from there Bezos knew he could leapfrog to other success – general and specialized merchandise sold on the internet and fulfilled from his distribution centers.

Have you ever felt pressured to make a decision regarding your success? You know, one of those 'decide right now or this opportunity will vanish' kind of a thing?
If you have experienced that, I hope you did not choose to buy, or subscribe to whatever it was they were selling. It was not of success.

You may have made a decision, intended a path long ago, it made so strongly and with such anchor that it has no option but to finally come to fruition. And then one day, out of the blue it seems, you receive that intuitive nudge telling you it's time for that plant to blossom.
Immediately you will want to validate that nudge – is it still worthy of your pursuit or was it then, and is it again, just a fleeting moment? Here's how to tell: Does it excite you and make you happy? Does it fill you with a sense of joy to see yourself undertaking that course? And most importantly, can you imagine yourself as successful at it?

We can become frustrated and depressed when the world seems to going against us. We may even do things to sabotage our immediate, or future progress.
However, it is those periods of “non-success” and of difficulty when we learn to become our greatest success. Being the teacher is great. But knowing when to be the student, to listen and learn, can be the most important part of our success.
