Have You Made Success An Ethical Obligation?

Have You Made Success An Ethical Obligation?

Entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and sales expert, Grant Cardone, correctly states that “success is your duty, obligation and responsibility.” He further states that you must consider achieving your goals and living up to your potential as an “ethical obligation.” Being ethical means always doing right in professional conduct. When you treat success as your duty, you are willing to do whatever it takes to create it; you will do what others refuse to do to win. If, however, you treat success as an option, you will never realize your full potential.

Success is not a zero sum game – I win, you lose. In fact, there is no shortage as to how much success can be created. Shortages of success are manufactured notions that take the form of envy, jealousy, unfairness , etc. If you think someone else’s gain is your loss, you are buying into those notions. When other people are successful (e.g., close $1M deal), feel encouraged. Equate their success with the possibility more success can be created. When you experience resistance and setbacks, re-read or re-write your goals. Focus on your targets, not your challenges.

If your goals do not excessively preoccupy your thoughts, how can you expect them to preoccupy the thoughts of others? You must be obsessed with realizing your goals and unreasonable in what you are willing to do to achieve them. Never use tomorrow (the future) to procrastinate. Take massive action today. Remember, there is no such thing as working too hard. Average performers say that to justify their decision to be content with the status quo. Never wait for success to happen to you; always approach it as your ethical obligation. “Success is your duty.”
