Success Is a Patchwork Quilt

No single guru or ebook or system is ever going to make you successful in life or in business.

The truth is, success is something you create… something you patch together from diverse sources of information and experience.

Maybe you learn something valuable from me. Maybe you learn something else valuable from another teacher. Maybe you learn something else valuable from a book.

And so on and so forth.

All this time you are digesting, assimilating, and synthesizing information based on your experiences up to that point.

You draw conclusions.

You try new things.

You readjust and move forward.

Success cannot be purchased in a box, even though that’s a strong selling appeal.

Success cannot be found by becoming a sycophant of “the guru of the month.”

But success can be found by recognizing valuable information when you stumble across it.

And then putting it to good use.
