“For most of us, success is like a mirage. We desperately need it, we keep on hoping that it is in our grasp, and it keeps on eluding us. Despite countless success stories and alluring success recipes from mystics, our journey toward this mirage goes on unabated, filled with wishful thinking and shattered dreams.

There are countless books on the subject of success, but with few exceptions, they approach success from the wrong angle. They preach about how success can be achieved quickly and retained forever, and they are hooked on the methodology and the management of success, not on the most fundamental piece of the puzzle: our mindset of success.

While methodology and management of success are certainly essential pieces, the total answer resides in attitude—the mindset that defines the quality of our life and is the architect of our successes and failures. A flawed mindset forces us to put the cart before the horse and tempts us to make our search for success a long, meaningless journey. Deploying a right mindset can start us on a thrilling adventure in pursuit of our genuine success.”
