Are You Doing "The Work?"

“Success is a science. If you have the conditions, you get the result.”
Oscar Wilde


I have a tendency to get grumpy on this subject so be warned! My observation is that all too many people expect success without doing the necessary work, first on the “self” and then on actually doing the work involved to succeed.

A quote from my book that radio interviewers often ask about is that “life is simple. This does not mean it is easy.” Preparing ourselves for success requires confronting, clearing, coming to terms with our past; learning to rigorously tell the truth about our current reality; and declaring a future freely chosen.

That kind of work on the “self,” while not easy, is powerful and rewarding.

With love and respect,

Robert
