Recipe For Success

I truly believe that we can all be a success at what we do.  It is all in our Attitude of how we deal with life and each and every circumstance as it comes along.  We can have a positive attitude about things or a negative attitude.  If we believe in the Law of Attraction then what we Reap is what we Sow,  so you have to give out the good to receive it in return.  These are some of the Recipes for Success that I have found to help me over the years.  The ingredients you put into life make a powerful statement about you.

My list of ingredients for success is divided into four basic groups. Inward. Outward. Upward. And Onward. – David Thomas

Your Recipe for Success

New ingredients can improve any recipe – including your recipe for success.Most of the time, both consciously and subconsciously, we borrow ingredients. We create our recipes from what we hear and see – after all, very few things these days are original. But we are all unique and can make use of these ingredients in unique ways. We are ever evolving. Depending on our present circumstances, the ingredients we create, choose, and borrow, we may come up with a success that’s totally different from other people’s.

The three essential ingredients of anyone’s recipe for success are the Straight A’s of attitude, aptitude, and action. You can’t have one without the others. What’s your recipe for success?

Here is a great recipe for success in life:

3 cups love

2 cups loyalty

3 cups forgiveness

5 table spoons hope

2 table spoons tenderness

4 quarts sharing

2 barrels of laughter

Take the love and loyalty and mix it with sharing. Blend it with tenderness, forgiveness, and hope. Sprinkle abundantly with laughter. Bake it with sunshine. Serve daily in generous helpings

My favorite recipe is:
Start with a huge amount of attitude, created through a combination of dreaming, vision, passion, belief, desire, self-esteem, confidence, and body language. Add aptitude, which is created by a combination of knowledge, learning, education, study, intelligence, books, and CD’s. Add action, which is created from a combination of planning, networking, goals, execution, determination, discipline, and polite persistence. Then add a pinch of failure, fear, rejection and change. Sift until it becomes experience. Stir until it’s ready to serve.
