If you want success to last, become a more confident, success-minded person. This is the only way to make the success you achieve today last well beyond tomorrow.
The only certain way to enjoy a lasting and growing success is to grow as a person. Practice disciplining your thoughts, seeing the bright side, and cultivating a confident state of mind.
Why is this important? Because things happen that are unforeseen, unexpected, and, if you are not cool in the face of challenges, unsettling.
Maxwell Maltz, author of “Psycho-Cybernetics,” wrote “Self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent.”
This is sage advice because the only opponent who can destroy is the one you see in the mirror.
Jim Rohn wrote “It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.”
Be a resilient, confident person and you will keep your success intact and continue to grow it.
And that’s why self-improvement makes for lasting success.
