What is your success factor

I ask my participants, “What is your success factor in life”  Some of them told me about luck, support from parents, good PR skills ,  good experience and profound professional knowledge” I was surprised that none of them explain the success factor from attitude point of view. As a result, many people do not put much emphasize on attitude development.

Lately, I discover that “skills training” is more popular than attitude training.  Many people want to learn leadership skills, selling skills, negotiation skills etc. In fact, ton of skills would become useless if we do not have the right mental attitude to apply them. Many professional are not doing their best in their choosing skills just because they are too smart to break the rules with WRONG ATTITUDE. There are doctors who are trapped in jail just because they misused their professional knowledge and skills.

In fact, I wish to acknowledge that attitude is as important as skills and knowledge. This is why most of the company stating the Core Values as part of their staff appraisal system. Good attitude lead to better commitment, better responsibility and better productivity. It also leads to better team work, better working relationship and better organization culture.

There are few criteria to inject “good attitude” among work force:

First : Reminder and pointer

People need to be remind again and again wither through verbal, written or demo by others. The more we remind them, the attitude become stronger

Second : Rules and guidelines

People want to know what can be done, and what cannot be done. When we have set up a standard performance for ourselves, we will use the guideline in our daily life.

Third : Rewards and penalty

People want to be appreciated when they are doing the right things.  The more we rewards people, the better their self esteem to carry out positive attitude. Penalty is another way of creating awareness but must be executed in good term to avoid resistance to change.

There are many success factors which impact your performance. These success factors are varies base on your key performance indication (Kpi) and environment challenges. The tougher the challenges, the more success factors would be involved. Any how, attitude factor can always rank number one in the world class performance. Most of the world class competition is not just depend on skills , but more on mental factor.


Success principles

Attitude is always the major success factor in all area of endeavor. When the game become tougher, the attitude of achiever must be equipped with greater and smarter attitude.


The danger of saying “I know”


Most of the people who fail to get what they want would rather “slow down” and “keep to basic” rather than trying all out to make it happen. They put a reverse gear in their life and they have the fear of “commit” to something that they can’t do. In short, they surrender to fast without knowing that there are tools and people who can help him to get what he wants.


One of the reasons is that they “think” they have try all what is possible of doing. They also “think” that they have learned everything about his success. Thus, they have a tendency to reject whatever guidance and support that may be rendered upon them. They thought that they are the master in his industrial and he has walk through all the up and down in life. The ego inside him make him “a full cup of water” and not ready for any input, especially people who do not know anything about his expertise.


This is a pitfall of success.  They thought only “Master of his industrial” can only help them. They do not aware that “simple ideas” from people who is not in his field would be able to open up his “mental brake”. The following case study might be helpful to you.


During the Board Of Directors of a toothpaste company marketing meeting, they brainstorm and discuss on how to improve their market share. They talk about packaging, customer service, pricing, marketing strategy, promotional tools ect. After few days of brainstorming and discussion, a tea lady say to them, “I have been here listening to all your wonderful ideas; can I also contribute my idea?” One the directors look at her and say “Don’t waste your time, you are not an expert in this business.” Anyhow, another director says “Why don’t give her a chance”. The tea lady than say “Well, you can make the toothpaste opener a little bigger, than the user will use more. If you double the size, the market will surely double too”. All the directors are amazed by the ideas. In fact, this is the number one formula that is being executed after the marketing meeting.


Your mentor and your coach might not be the expertise in your field, but they are able to lead you to think “out of your box” You will soon discover that one simple idea will give you a million dollar value in return.


Open up yourself. Don’t ever look down at ideas from strangers, from people who are not as wealthy as you, from people who are outclass or people you do not like. They might change your life and give you the next Million Dollar success.


Success wisdom

People who are expert in certain field can be easily locked up by certain career pattern and they fail to think “out of the box”. Sometimes, talking to people who are not in his line might be able to give a different insight about what he has been doing so far.

Are you ready for success?


When I ask many of my friends, are you ready for great success? The answer they give to me is “Yes, I am ready”. But, when you ask them “What have you done so far on the success matter?” Most of them would say “Not much” Than, I ask them, “What you would do in the next one year than?” Sadly to say, most of them are not having a clear blueprint for their future success.


What is the missing link between you and your success? The answer is definitely “plan” and “Action”. If in the past so many years, nothing has been done and many things are postponed, it is clearly show that “your planning and action are in trouble”

You might have put them into the diary. You might wake up every morning with the desire to do your best. But just motivation and writing down on diary are not enough. You need to have right planning skills and treat every dream as your life project. You need to manage the project with excitement.


Most people would say. I have done everything to get what I want, but just that it does not work. Do you ever study what you have done, how you do it ? and Is it right and proper? You can be pretty busy with day to day action and get nothing out of it. You are committed, but it is not enough.


Success is a system of principles that link one to another. Any misshape of any principles would make your dreams stagnant. Many people think that they have known everything about success but yet fail to get what they want. When they refer to the success system, they found that few of the major principles are still not being applied in their life. They will also discover that those principles are so easy. Failure to live up any of the principles would mean “failure” and “disappointment”


When you read motivational books, you find that success principles are so simple. It can be  “thinking big”, “Don’t procrastinate” “Love what you do” etc. But putting all of them together in a masterpiece is not an easy task. You need to have a system to guide you and make them part of your daily endeavor.


Due to this shortcoming in success venture, I made an effort to compile all the success principles that is important to our future success. I name it “Biogenic Life Success System”. It encompasses all the philosophy and principles of success through the ages. I believe you will start to taste and experience this miraculous system and take it as part of your future success tools.


Success wisdom

If you wish to discover the power of “success”, don’t just apply few principles and say it does not work. Put them all together and live them up as a “master blueprint” for your life, you will start to understand why “ success principles are simple but difficult to live up.”
