We all want to be successful and fulfill our most important needs.

Money (security). New car (reliable and nice way to get around). More money (fun, freedom). Family and commumity (love).

If you search online you’ll find thousands of way to be successful from “work at home and make $500 a day” to “join this PLATINUM mastermind for a $100,000 a year and all your dreams will come true!

I know this because I’ve invested in many online courses, coaching, classes and even some get rich quick schemes (ugh).

Some of them helped me and some of them were a complete waste of money. Some of the money I’ve got back and a lot was just like flushing it down the toilet, while learning a great lesson: (don’t flush money down the toilet!)

What I’ve learned is, I am by far the most successful in ALL aspects of my life when I stop trying to be something I’m not.

When I live with integrity, take responsibility for my life and stop trying to please others or be LIKE others (sorry Tony Robbins – I never agreed with that piece of advice!)

The #1 way to be a success is to be yourself. Your very best, most happy, talented and brilliant you. Do what you love – DO IT! Work hard, as hard as you want, but work at being YOU!

I was moved to write this blog because of a video I saw on Facebook. It’s a song written by Colbie Caillat called “Try”. Colbie is a Grammy Award winning singer / songwriter. It made me cry and happy at the same time.
