More than three years ago, I began this amazing journey called a blog. It’s been full of ups and downs, elations and frustrations. Most of all, it’s had a positive impact on so many lives. And now it’s time to change it.
I’ve only purchased one Grateful Dead album (technically a CD) in my life. It was a greatest hits album called “What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been.”
That album title aptly describes this blog.
Over the past three years, I’ve learned a ton. I’ve also influenced people in ways I never imagine. So why change it? I’ll get to that in a moment.
First, what I’ve learned…
What I’ve Learned in 3+ Years of Blogging
Did you know that not all successful people are equal? What separates the very successful from the successful? In today’s episode you will learn 4 things you must learn to do to make the leap from successful to very successful…
If you look back at the most successful people in history, You will find that each of them clearly learned to do four things. Some learned them earlier than others. But eventually they learned them all before they reached the level of very successful.
In this episode we talk about:
- The difference between being successful and very successful
- Some examples of very successful people
I’m going to make one assumption about you as I write this post:
You are already a successful person.
I know that to be true because unsuccessful people don’t usually read self-improvement blogs. No, you may not be a millionaire yet, your business may still be virtually unknown, or you haven’t gotten the promotion you’ve wanted for the past two years, but the very act of reading this shows me you are already successful. But I also know that you want to take it to the next level. So how do you do that?

You can find great leaders everywhere, if you just look.
Perhaps you’ve heard of one from the news recently. His name is Joey Prusak. He’s 19-years old and he has more leadership ability than most 40-year olds I know.
If you don’t know his story, here is a quick recap courtesy of NPR:
Prusak, a Dairy Queen manager, back on Sept. 10 saw a woman pick up a $20 bill that a blind customer dropped. When Prusak told her to give it back, she refused. So, the 19-year-old manager refused to serve her. He then took $20 of his own money and gave it to the visually impaired customer.
