The Curse of Success Geniuses

Written by Jason Katzenback

Don't talk to me about how to succeed! I've read success advice and books and articles. They're all…"

"What Do You Think I am Going to Say?”

"They're all good? They're too good!

Why, when I've read just what to do to succeed, I am ready to tellrepparttar President to get out, so that I may showrepparttar 141978 world what real success is."

"Those books inspire me! They wind me up like an alarm clock all set for success. They make me dream BIG dreams-and then in a few days, I wake up and start to forget! "

You see dreaming of success is not enough, people succeed because they do something… they do something it in a big way."

You have probably read that 'do something' ad­vice, but- let me tell you-there's something left out! And, to be honest I don't believe that very successful men actually know just how they succeed.

"They're geniuses, and geniuses can do things without knowing how they do them." Let me explain… I can't playrepparttar 141979 piano, but my wife is a musical genius. She can play any tune she hears. She can play anything I whistle! But she doesn't know HOW she does it, and she can't tell me how she does it, in fact she can not even read music well!"

"I believe that a lot of very successful people are success geniuses, and so, isn't it true that they can succeed without knowing just how they do it?” Think of some especially gifted genius you might know, who was able to do some one thing astoundingly well without knowing how he did it.

Geniuses are rare.

In degree of capacity, they differ fromrepparttar 141980 rest of us, and so, perhaps, eminently successful people - success geniuses - are able to succeed without being conscious of how they do it.

So oftenrepparttar 141981 advice on suc­cess, which we read, comes from these people. But since they are geniuses, perhaps they don't know just what makes them successful any more thanrepparttar 141982 natural born musician knows what makes it possible for him to play any air he hears without having been taught it.
