How many other people do you know laying awake at night thinking about how you can have a better life? I’m guessing about the same number I have—zero.
Success Net is about helping you design, plan, create and live your best life. We can help—and we’re committed to doing so. But the first step is for you to understand that you, and you alone, are the architect of your life.
And your best life doesn’t just happen. It doesn't automatically unfold, and it’s not given to you. You have to design and create your best life yourself. You are 100% responsible.
No one else can, or will, do this for you.
In fact, here is a complete list of what others have planned for you:
I’ve known Bob Stiller for over 25 years. During that time, I’ve watched him build a small Vermont business into a gigantic publicly traded company. And earlier this week, that company, Keurig-Green Mountain, was sold to a private-equity firm for $13.9 billion.
Coffee is the number two commodity in the world (right after oil), but that’s still a lot of money for a coffee company founded in little Waterbury, Vermont in 1981.
Bob bought out his original partners within two years for $100, 000. But it took four years to turn a profit. Early on, the company embraced an environmental and socially responsible ethos, and I always admired the culture Bob developed and cultivated in his consistently growing concern.
If you can accomplish your dream all by yourself, it’s likely your dream isn’t all that big.
Going it alone is hard. Teamwork makes it easier—and a lot less lonely.
The fact is, it costs nothing to dream bigger. And oftentimes bigger dreams are easier to achieve than small ones—because they’re more motivating and inspiring.
Grand dreams also make it easier to attract people to your team. People like to be part of something bigger, meaningful and more significant.
