We all want to be successful. In all areas of our life, because frankly that is what life is (or should be about).

Just like we only get one body, we only get one life and the days seemingly slip away harmlessly into years…

As I have said over and over again. Life is SHORT.

We owe it to ourselves, our families, our friends and followers to not settle for mediocrity. Life needs to be lived. Take sometime to sit down and design the life you want to lead. Sure this can be and IS scary but there really isn’t anything to lose.

Once you have the picture. Set up some process goals to make that happen and then follow the simple yet highly disciplined formula to success designed by the 1972 Olympic Champion wrestler and Olympic coach Dan Gable.

Success boils down to three principles:

1. You need to listen to good people, people who are knowledgeable and want the best for you.

2. You need to believe in what you’re taught by these people and believe in yourself.

3. You need to apply habitually what you’re taught.

Gable says that you will succeed when all three principles are in place. Better yet as you succeed, it will also lead to domination IF you continue working the formula.

I’m going to add another point and it ties into principle #3. and that is Show up.

Simple eh… in theory yes, but not so in practice. It takes discipline to develop the habits that lead you to the successes you desire.

What is cool is that it will work for anything you want to master, not only triathlon.

Listening and believing is not enough though. Nothing good happens if you don’t apply what you have learned over and over again, unless you practice the art of relentless repetition, you will never become a success. (This is the showing up part)

Don’t be fooled into thinking this formula is too simplistic to be true. Well it maybe if you don’t want to be successful.
