As I said before secret to success is having a good plan, a lot of determination, and especially patience. In our quest for success, we should always remember our priorities.
Unfortunately, we live in a society where a personís success is measured by size of their billfold, their car and their home. To some people, belonging to country club means they "have arrived". To others, where there are multiple country clubs, they canít join just any club they must belong to THE Country Club.
I am reminded of a story that I heard years ago while attending a seminar.
A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist complimented Mexican fisherman on quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.
"Not very long - it is a very nice day and fish are plentiful," answered Mexican.
"But then I donít understand, why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked American.
The Mexican fisherman explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs and those of his family.
The American asked, "But what do you do with rest of your time?"
"I get to sleep as late as I wish, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with my wife. In evenings, I go into village to be with my friends, have a few drinks, play guitar, and sing a few songs...I have a very full life."
"Hold on a second", American interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can really help you! You have to have a good plan. You need to stay focused on a target - success. You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell extra fish you catch.
