High-speed internet access, instant messaging, fast-track to success, and even fast food, describes the rush, rush world we live in. More than ever before, people want instant access and quicker results. While it is understandable that no one wants to take the slow route, success in any endeavor takes time, focus, and dedication. Education is much like a path with no end; we each make our way down the path and the better educated we are, the more enjoyable and rewarding our journey becomes.
I am in the process of creating a membership site that you will hear more about in the coming months. It will provide an ever-growing curriculum that has two distinct approaches to personal and professional development: training and education. I believe that one must train for today and educate for tomorrow to be successful.
Training and education offered via my membership site is being designed to help members develop knowledge and philosophies that will influence their attitudes and decision-making skills. Below you will find my ‘Path to Success’ that will guide you to achieve greater levels of success in both your personal and professional life.
Dr. Rich’s Path to Success
Education that forms our knowledge base comes from the schools we attend, the lessons we learn from our parents and grandparents, and what we are taught through our lived experiences. Education can be formal or informal and is one thing no one can ever take away from you!
As we become more educated, we mature in thought. As that occurs, our personal philosophies evolve. This is sometimes referred to as ‘wisdom’ that comes from life experiences and increased education. The philosophies of how we view the world and people around us impact our attitudes. With philosophies that allow for sound reasoning, our attitudes are positive, and so is our well-being. This is why it is critical to associate with positive and successful people.
Our attitudes then align to the actions we take and the short- and long-term decisions we make. The most successful, respectable people take focused actions and have positive attitudes that allow them to see a better future. These people are referred to as ‘Subject Matter Experts.’ Associate with the best of the best and you’ll progress far above the rest!
Training and education are the foundation for building a strong knowledge base that over time will collectively add up with ‘incremental gains’ to produce success. Education has a way of creating ‘new views’ that provide inspiration and motivation for self-improvement.
As a professor and public speaker, I have had the privilege of encouraging people to consider new concepts and formulate fresh thoughts. When that happens, their hopes and aspirations flourish as a new world opens up to them. The same thing happens to me when I purposefully seek further education. And it will happen to you when you join my membership site and discover dynamic and creative ways to increase your knowledge base and expand your own horizon.
