Whenever people talk about self-improvement, they ask "How can I get from where I am to where I want to be?"

The simple answer to this that you can do anything you want to, if you want it enough and you are prepared to take the necessary action. For anything to happen you must have two things:

Thought and
Everything starts with a 'Thought', but nothing happens without 'Action'. There is a simple formula which I call 'Your Success Principle' that can be applied by anybody to just about any situation. This formula brings together the two necessary components of thought and action and provides the means of how to get from where you are to where you want to be.

The first part is your approach and attitude, in other words, the way you think about things. This must be worked on if you are to succeed at moving from where you are to where you want to be.

You've heard about this before, but I'm going to show it to you in a different way. It comprises just three words: the first is POSITIVE which is the opposite of negative and in this case means accepting that things can be good. The second word is MENTAL meaning 'using your mind', and the third word is ATTITUDE. In this case attitude is the way you consider things. So the first part of how to get from where you are to where you want to be is POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE.

The second part of the formula for your success principle is concerned with what you do about the situation that is causing you the problem and is also boiled down to three words. The first of these words is SUSTAINED, which in my book means "keep on doing" the things you need to do. The next word refines the statement by adding MEANINGFUL and focuses you on doing things that are relevant not just being busy. And the final word in the second part of the formula is ACTIVITY.

The second part of the formula is therefore SUSTAINED MEANINGFUL ACTIVITY. Doing the things you need to do that are relevant and continue doing them until you achieve the result you desire.
