Why Some Never & Some Do: The 9 Ps to Success

Positive Points along the Path

I’ve been working on my branding bringing all my pursuits together. Besides being a mom and grandmother, I’m a REALTOR, Design Psychologist, teacher, author, speaker, and internet marketer. I love having multiple projects and feel so great when things come together in harmony.

The following ideas may help you complete amazing achievements similar to my accomplishments this past year. I’m not bragging. I’m an example of what you can do. If a grieving senior widow who lost everything can turn her life around when it seemed hopeless, you can too.

One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to express gratitude as much as possible for everything during each phase of the following process. And, love everyone you come into contact with. No matter how difficult someone may be, try to just send loving thoughts their way. Don’t complain and participate in poor-me stories. I faked joy until I became Joy. Love in action creates joy.

The 9 Ps to Success

Do you know your life’s purpose? When you find your purpose, you can filter the thousands of thoughts flitting through your consciousness. Your life’s mission may define your purpose or just give you a guideline for actions. Have you created a mission statement?

One interesting exercise is to write an obituary for yourself. Writing an obituary lets you imagine what you want to accomplish in your lifetime. You can then plan the steps you need to take to achieve your desires. Try it. You may be surprised. (By the way, if you use a pen and paper, these exercises get more creative results for most.)

While your purpose may be more spiritual and intellectual, your passion comes from your heart, emotions, and intuition. Get into a meditative state and let your mind wander. What are your secret heart’s desires? What are you passionate about? Think about your aspirations, longings, adorations, cravings, and what gives you pleasure.

Let your purpose and passion meld and percolate. Let your creative juices help you see pictures in your mind of actions, events, and results. Imagine and see your vision from concept to completion. Dream something bigger than yourself. Hold thought steadfastly to the good you can bring forth to the world.

Create a plan of action steps forward. You may not see the entire roadmap at first and circumstances change. Continue picturing the results you want. Listen to your heart. What’s your next best step? Take it. Keep adding action steps to take. Check your old list of goals or To Do list. Some things are always there, but you’ll be surprised how many action steps you strike through in a week, month, or a year.

Along the way, you will start getting things ready to tackle your initial steps. Work, write, design, post, advertise, whatever you need to do and remember your purpose to motivate yourself. These actions determine your ultimate success. The difference between successful people and those who always struggle is the ones who achieve their dreams do things they don’t want to do while those who sit around saying it can’t be done take no action. Take the extra actions to advance your progress. Work a little more when you’d rather watch TV. Ask the difficult questions and do the hard things.

It’s time for you to shine! Feel your passion and share from your heart. Love your audience and forget yourself. Give your performance your total concentration. Push yourself to give more than your customers, clients, and even you expect.

Expect to profit from all your hard work. Don’t give up. Learn from your mistakes and keep going. Demand your fair profit for work well done.

Take pleasure in your success and pay it forward. You deserve happiness just as much as you deserve profits.

Peace of Mind
Find serenity and stop to enjoy the peace of mind you’ve created for yourself. Express gratitude.

Next? Repeat. 
What are you going to do?
Get gutsy! Declare publicly your intentions below so we can support your endeavors.



One of my blessings is my home. I lost all my real estate when my husband passed and no one would pay the rent on our investment properties. God or the Universe, whatever your beliefs, provided this home. I designed the pool in my dreams until it became reality. There was only dirt surrounding my home when I purchased it. You can see how it evolved over the past few years. I’m so grateful!

Love & Joy to you,

  1. I so enjoyed reading this as it speaks from the heart and soul of so many problems today. People give up and give over their power when things go wrong and they can and do go wrong. This is life and what you have created out of chaos and confusion is something that I admire. So many would’ve still been sitting waiting and wondering what to do. However you took your adversity and turned it into a powerful tool known as believing in yourself and the world around you. You got up after the long dark night and you put 1 foot in front of the other and that my dear has made all the difference in the world. Dr. Mary Kay Evans
