Chapter 5: The Seven Lies of Success

The world we live in is the world we choose to live in, whether consciously or unconsciously.

No matter how strong our beliefs, we should always be open to other possibilities and concepts. There are seven beliefs that can be very useful.

Everything happens for a reason and a purpose, and it serves us. Every adversity brings some opportunities and benefits, even if it contains a painful lesson. It is up to us to convert a negative result into a positive outcome.

There is no such thing as failure. There are only results. The result can be negative, but it only means to try again using different methods. We do not fail. From negative results, we can learn and gain experience to produce better results the next time. Believing in failure is poisoning our mind, which puts us into a negative state.

Whatever happens, take responsibility. We generate our experiences in life. We do this through our actions, behavior, states, and thoughts. We can control them, so we are responsible for the quality of our lives.

It’s not necessary to understand everything to be able to use everything. We should determine the balance between use and knowledge.

People are your greatest resource. Only as a team with a common purpose can we build something big. The most successful companies know this, which is why they treat their employees with respect and dignity.

Work is play. Only when we love what we do are we fully committed and motivated.

There’s no abiding success without commitment. We can achieve success if we do everything that is in our power and “whatever it takes.”
