Change Your Ways To Success

Being successful isn’t an easy task, that’s why most people are not successful. After reading Josh Linkner’s article “You Lost It: 7 Ways to Get Your Mojo Back,” on Forbes, I thought it might make for an interesting blog post.

In the article, Linkner offers 7 ways to change up how you are currently doing things in order to bring some peace and increased productivity to a stagnant life, namely:

  • Change Your View
  • Change Your Attitude
  • Change Your Patterns
  • Change Your Priorities
  • Change Your Mentor
  • Change Your Friends
  • Change Your Thoughts

Now, I can see where he’s going with some of these, but his mention of changing friends is a bit unrealistic.  I mean, we have friends for a reason.  I may not have scores of extremely successful businessmen or lawyers for friends, but I keep company with good, hard-working people who make an honest living.  I’m not going to abandon them because I want to better myself.  I kind of think that akin to “throwing the baby out with the bathwater” mentality.

His advise for changing mentors, though, is sound.  Mister Miyagi ended up being a good mentor for the Karate Kid–better than the karate school jerk.
