An ancient story tells of a young King who wanted to document the most profound and useful wisdom that had been discovered since the beginning of time. So he assembled his most learned scholars, monks, philosophers and wizards and charged them with the monumental task.
Many years went by before they returned with the results. They presented the King with a large set of leather-bound books and were visibly proud of their hard and painstaking work.
The King thanked them, but said the work was too grand. He requested they distill down what they had already sifted to a much more condensed body of work.
More years went by before those still living returned with three books. But the King was still not satisfied. He demanded that they consolidate even further.
With much trepidation, his scholars eventually presented their king with one book that they felt confident was the most concise and condensed understanding of all great truths.
He read the book. And he thought about it for a long time.
But once again he felt that the efforts were insufficient. So he charged his most learned men to give him one sentence that encompassed all the great knowledge they had so dutifully studied and documented.
Within the year, they returned with these four words to fulfill the King’s demands: “There’s no free lunch.”
OK, so it’s not a true story. And it’s doubtful that those four words would have been the result if it had been true.
But I like the story, because for over 40 years, I’ve been attempting to learn and refine the fundamentals of success—of getting what you truly want.
What I was looking for were the common denominators of success. I discarded things that weren’t universal and could be attributed to luck, individual traits and sometimes even gimmickry.
What I found were three things that all achievers had in common. And no, they had nothing to do with “There’s no free lunch.”
It’s all explained in my new book. The Achievement Code: The Three-C Formula for Getting What You Truly Want is about implementing Clarity, Concentration and Consistency. Because all three are common to achieving success and happiness.
I’m pleased to share with you my latest book and look forward to hearing from you as to how it helps you get what you truly want.
