You can read everything you can get your hands on about acquiring wealth, you can work 'roundrepparttar clock to achieve your dreams, and you can try every known method to get ahead, butrepparttar 102090 'bottom line' is that there really are only three keys to success.


"Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developedrepparttar 102091 opportunity that was at hand." - Bruce Marton

It has often been said that opportunity will present itself to you IF you are inrepparttar 102092 right place atrepparttar 102093 right time. That is probably true for many of us. However, opportunity also presents itself, sometimes, in other forms - inrepparttar 102094 form of a challenge or an obstacle, for example. Indeed, most ofrepparttar 102095 world's greatest innovations came about asrepparttar 102096 result of someone trying to find a solution to a problem!

So timing is important, and being inrepparttar 102097 right place atrepparttar 102098 right time may be equally important. But it may also be that you simply have to see a problem that needs a solution - or open your eyes to a disguised 'opportunity' that may be right in front of you.


It follows that if you can see an opportunity right in front of you, you must also be able to seerepparttar 102099 POTENTIAL in what is being presented. In other words, you need to be able to ENVISION success. In order to set your goals to achieve success, you'll need to know what it will look like when you get there - THAT is vision!
