4 step formula that simply guarantees success

4 Step Formula That Simply GUARANTESS Success whether a real estate agent in Palm Harbor FL, or a student in Flattop Mountain , Utah.


On May 25th, Wesley Firkin introduced himself to the Active Rain community with his first Active Rain blog.  (http://actvra.in/4RSz)

What he shared reminded me how personal our struggles may seem to be. Then at some point in our lives we realize we are  not in the struggle alone. However, it is the responsibility of each of us to make ourselves available for the help that surrounds us.

As real estate professionals, we live an isolated and lonely existence, permeated by the 'smiley face' syndrome to the point the agent often loses identity of who they really are.

All of us labor toward that one day when we will be financially free.

Perhaps your financial freedom, if you hurry, is going to take 5 years.

Or, if you were to relax a bit, enjoy the journey, and balance your life along the way, let’s say your financial freedom is going to take 3 years longer.

What would your choice be? Financially free in 5 years with worry, stress, problems, craziness, sickness, pressure and unhappiness all along the way, or would you rather take a few years longer to be financially free, having enjoyed and loved those 8 years fully?

Which option sounds like the greater success story to you?

“Well, I’m stressed out as it is right now," some will say, "worrying about money, so yes, even if I have to undergo a little more stress in the short-term, I’d rather get rich quicker than wait a second longer than I have to.”

There are a lot of people who feel like they work better under pressure and that is fair enough. That is like the artist who thinks he or she produces masterpieces when they have drama in their life. That does work for some.

Let me propose an alternative question: "If you were not stressed out about anything–even reaching those goals that are most important to you–what would your mind do instead of focus on the drama?"

What would your mind do if you weren’t worrisome or pressured every minute in order to reach some goal as quickly as possible?

It wouldn’t have that much to do, would it? However the survival instinct in your mind knows its primary job is to look for fear around every corner.

Without interference from this survival instinct, the best version of yourself, the higher you, can begin to assert your natural, harmonious connection to the universe more and more effortlessly.

Choosing to develop the habit of not allowing guilt, anxiety or pressure to control your thoughts, emotions, and actions, you allow another type of energy to work through you as well as with you.

There’s a qualitatively different experience to life when the best version of you, the higher you, directs your being. To live from the higher self is to live in courage, purpose and joy rather than fear, need and obligation. When you are in your higher self, this is the only time it is possible for you to connect with the universe and the vast reservoir of wisdom and clarity that awaits.

Whatever it is you’re striving for in life, don’t attempt it by yourself! Yes, you have to do your part, but you don’t have to figure out every single thing on your own by yourself. There exists supportive essence in this universe that wants to see you and me and everyone be prosperous and successful. That is its sole purpose: to support whatever it is we create with our thoughts and actions.

So what’s the secret to tapping into this source of unlimited potential? In other words, what’s the secret to being successful?


But not just practice getting better at whatever it is you’re trying to be successful at. You also have to practice being happy right now and not wait for “success,” whatever that word means to you!

Wesley shared a profoundly important principle. That principle is, "Gratefulness is the foundation of enduring happiness."

Practice being appreciative, joyful, light, calm, confident, centered, beautiful, smiling and knowing. These are the attributes of the best version of yourself, your higher self.

And this is “The Simplest Formula for Success”:

  1. Learn.
  2. Do.
  3. Go back to 1.
  4. Go back to 2.

You’re going to continuously learn, do, and repeat that equation. You are going to make mistakes. You are going to run into obstacles. It happens to everyone, and it will happen to you.

Just practice this simple formula for success, and operate from a place of practical yet positive belief in what you’re doing.

So …take a nice, deep breath. Do the best you can. Allow the universe to handle the timing of your ultimate success. Be confident that it will work out. Your success, though never guaranteed, is within your grasp when you follow this simple formula for success.

Take your ego out of the way with its insistence on having its way, which usually entails unnecessary strife, anxiety, impatience, and worry.

You are going to be successful because you are going to do two things.

You’re going to learn things.

And then you’re going to do them.

You’re going to put them into practice. You’re going to learn more, and then you’re going to put that more into practice.

And you’re going to enjoy every step along the way, as long as you allow the best version of yourself its deserved expression as much as humanly possible in your everyday life.

As I read Wesley Firkin's first blog on Active Rain, the words I thought I heard from his lips, "I'm going to do them!"

Hi Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041.  Can't believe I'm just now getting to read this post ~ it's been in the universe for almost 2 weeks now  

As a new agent, it is very tempting to jump on the "worry wagon" and add to the stress of life.  But I choose to work hard and go with the flow at the same time.

I try to read every morning and get myself "centered" ~ your words are just my "cup of tea."  Thank you Annette
