Motivational Speakers – Wrap your head around these 10 Success Breakthroughs
I just read a great blog post from the Braintrack blog site – The 10 Biggest Breakthroughs in the Science of Success.
If you want the skinny, you can check it out below (here’s the full article) – my comments are slightly irreverent. (Definitely leaning more to the cheeky side than to the scornful side). Based on my own work around success, I happen to concur with most of what the folks from Braintrack have put forward.
Of course, success is different for everyone. So, defining it is difficult and then road-mapping a plan to achieve it is just as difficult. Success to you means something totally different than it does to me. I suppose that’s the joy of being human – nothing is simple.
- The difference between firstborns and secondborns. According to Belgian researchers, firstborn children are superior to second born. Ye gads, now I know why my elder brother, Bruckner is in charge of a company and I’m (barely) in charge of me.
- Success breeds more success. Duh!
- Practice really does make perfect. And there, I thought practice makes permanent.
- The biology of risk taking. Evidently it is all in the hormones.
- The role of praise in achievement. Don’t do too much of it.
- Using the “if then” plan. Sounds like a plan.
- Visualising success is for suckers. Thank you … finally someone got it. I like the hard work, taking action model.
- Many heads can be better than one. Yup, just ask Medusa.
- Potential matters more than success. That’s what I tell my dates: “Invest in my potential”. When they see my clapped out Datsun, they find it difficult to keep a straight face. Jeez, so judgmental.
- Looking to the future is more important than looking to the past. Mmm … it’s really fulfilling to tell people that I was the 1981 Jukskei champion (for non-South Africans – it is a game similar to horseshoe throwing).
For all the motivational speakers out there: can you top any of these Science of Success breakthroughs?
