what is your success IQ?

What is the difference between those who are successful and believe and those who aren’t?   It turns out that it isn’t IQ that predicts success.   Only 25% of success is contributed to IQ.   That explains why the “C” student with a good idea and passion can become more successful than the overachieving “A” student.   

What then are the key factors for success?   Success follows happiness.    The happier and more positive a person is the more likely success will occur for that person.    Just shifting a thought from negative to positive will make a difference.   Shifting all negative thoughts to positive ones will make a huge difference.   When that small voice starts speaking to you and telling you that you aren’t capable of doing it then replace that thought with a positive one that says, “Yes, I can”.    The brain can only process one thought at a time so replacing a negative thought every time one happens with a positive thought will benefit you.    Keep the positive thoughts in your head and life will become better.

There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Henri Matisse

Practice shifting your thoughts to positive ones and work on that daily, it will make a difference.   Louise Hay has some comments on positive thinking, check out this video.
