Will Rogers’ Formula for Success
“In order to succeed, you must know what you are doing, like what you are doing and believe in what you are doing.” – Will Rogers. For those who may not know him, Will Rogers was an American cowboy, newspaper columnist, stage and motion picture actor, and humorist. He certainly was not afraid to try new things and gave us his wisdom in simple, direct terms.
His advice on success is no exception. Knowing what you are doing says you have a specific goal in mind – at this point, you don’t have to know how you are going to get there. If you decide, for example, that being an industrial engineer serving large companies does not feel like what you were meant to do, you look at options and see that small business coaching looks like a better fit. How to get there – you have a friend who is a business coach and more clients than they can handle. He mentors you, you try it part-time and find it is the very best decision for you. Believing in the change of direction then gives you the power to move forward, to do what you were meant to do.
Many read Will Rogers for his humor but if you look for the underlying truths you can find a great deal of wisdom.
