10 Simple Success Strategies


There’s no need to complicate what it takes to be successful!

“If you’re doing it hard, you’re doing it wrong” is a quote I heard often in the military. It has stuck with me in every major endeavor. Gurus of all types will have you believe that success is some mystical or difficult formula that only they have the monopoly on and that you need to hand over big bucks so they can show you how to use their complex ‘success strategies.’

Let me save you some headache and your hard-earned cash and remind you that success is indeed simple.


Don’t confuse simplicity with being simplistic.

To reach any goal, you do have to be strategic. If you have the right system, process, or framework, then the sky is truly the limit. We don’t call this site, Strategic Secrets for nothing. Fortunately for you, we have decoded success and goal achievement to it’s simplest elements.

Here Are My 10 Simple Success Strategies for Goal Achievement:

  1. Pray About the Goal. If it pleases God and will not harm and injure others, but will be a blessing instead, then commit to it and set it as a goal to achieve.
  2. Visualize Yourself Accomplishing that Goal Daily. Get it etched in your mind vividly by meditating upon the goal until you see it naturally.
  3. Do Something Every day Towards Achieving the Goal. This not only builds momentum but will guarantee reaching the goal in due time. Success loves action so act on your goals whenever you can.
  4. Do Your Best and Leave the Results up to God. He is the miracle worker so once you’ve done all you can do (be honest with yourself here), expect God to bless and grant you favor in realizing your dream.
  5. Exercise and Stretch Daily. Keep your body performing at its best and it will not fail you when you need to push it to complete your goal.
  6. Go Green! Eating and drinking fresh green veggies will give you a boost of energy and may even help you live longer to enjoy your accomplishment(s).
  7. Go to Bed Before 10:00 p.m. and Wake up Before 6:00 a.m. Early to bed, early to rise still makes you healthy, wealthy, and wise. Don’t sabotage your success. This strategy has worked for kings, sages, athletes, and the world’s most successful people for centuries. It will work for you too.
  8. Remain Thankful and Express Gratitude Throughout the Day. Let others know you’re grateful for their love, help, and support. Return thanks in prayer to God for His marvelous blessings in your life, business, or ministry. Zig Ziglar used to say, “The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more you will have to be thankful for.”
  9. Listen to and Read Something Inspirational Before You Leave Home. Keep your mind and body in a state of positivity by deliberately putting the good in. Read the Sacred Scriptures, listen to classical music, read a success book, listen to your favorite motivational speaker, or repeat positive affirmations out loud. The more you do this, the more you will drown out the negativity that zaps your productivity.
  10. Plan Tomorrow Today (PTT). This is perhaps the best simple success strategy I’ve ever paid for. Yep! My first paid coaching session revealed this strategic secret and it has changed my life and goal setting forever! Each evening, write out what you plan to do tomorrow. Set your goals the day before and create a plan of action to achieve them the next day.

I pray you found those 10 simple success strategies to be helpful. If you need the best results-getting success strategies, I highly recommend The 100 Day Challenge by my friend and success expert, Gary Ryan Blair. I’ve written about this before in a few blog posts that you can check out here.

If you’ve got some big hairy audacious goals and want to crush them quickly (in the next 100 days), then you need strategic secrets that will give consistent proven results to make a quantum leap. This is that system!

Just this quarter alone, using the principles of the 100 Day Challenge, I’ve been able to:

  • Interview ten 6-7 Figure entrepreneurs
  • Finish yet another degree (Master’s in Project Management ~ MPM) with a 4.0 GPA — gradating Suma Cum Laude
  • Draft a new book/course
  • Host 2 financial and depression seminars
  • Facilitate 7 local community health fairs
  • Motivate a close friend to pay off his house mortgage
  • Lead our Church to decrease it’s mortgage to now less than $99,000 (with a goal to pay it off completely by end of the year)
  • Celebrate 11 years of marriage to my B.M.W (Beautiful Marvelous Wife), Rhonitta
  • Drive over 3,000 miles with my wife and son for a scenic vacation and bonding

Now it’s your turn. You can do even more with Gary’s expert success training in goal achievement. Start by grabbing his Free DOWNLOAD: Unleash Your Greatness. It has some great tips on creating radical results fast. I think you’ll really love it.
