Which success story do you believe?

Which of these two beliefs do you hold regarding your success?

1. “Your success…is reliant on your hustle – the decisions you make and the steps you take.” (ital added – kk)
Tory Johnson

The self-help industry approach in a nutshell.

At the opposite end:

2. “If you work with detachment, you will refuse to be rushed [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][or] let anything get on your nerves. But success and failure are of no account. They are God’s concern, not mine.” (ital added – kk) M.K. Gandhi

Which story do you live by?

Remember Gandhi also worked around the clock. This is a question for folks who are putting in extended best efforts. It’s not about doers vs non-doers.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

  • When I clicked in the Tory Johnson link, it appears that she is saying the same thing as Ghandi…I have not read her book, or ever seen her face before, so I could be incorrect.

    Ghandi hustled, in his own way, but without care for what others thought.

    In the email you mentioned Tony Robbins. Is he only about hustle? I don't think so, though I am not an avid follower. I also don't think the self-help industry only says "hustle." I think that comes from network marketing, actually! The old "ignorance on fire" syndrome. Go out and spew on everyone you know on day-1 and hope something/someone sticks.

    If you're working around the clock and not getting results that please you, you have to change something (duh) mindset or actions or both.

    This post seems to suggest placing blame outside ourselves (on the self-help industry – as though its homogeneous!) for our lack of positive results? If I wasn't so detached, this would get on my nerves;-)
