You’ve no doubt had your fill of stories about successful people who failed and failed their way to success. There are many successful people who attended the school of hard knocks. Abraham Lincoln failed six times in politics before he was elected President of the United States. Henry Ford’s first automobile company went bankrupt. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times with the incandescent light bulb. R.H. Macy failed seven times before figuring it out. There are enough successful failures out there to fill volumes of success books.
But history is also replete with stories of successful individuals who did not experience failure. Andrew Carnegie experienced nothing but success in his march to making millions. Benjamin Franklin, America’s first millionaire, succeeded in just about every endeavor. Warren Buffet’s rise to billionaire status was all but uninterrupted.
My point is that you don’t need to graduate from the school of hard knocks in order to succeed. There’s an easier way. You just need to adopt good daily success habits. Habits put your life on autopilot.
Habits are automatic, subconscious behaviors, thinking and choices. Most are not even aware of the habits they have. The Midas Touch is nothing other than having good daily success habits. To the untrained eye, those who have this Midas Touch, seem to coast through life realizing one success after another. But the reality is these individuals have incorporated good daily success habits into their lives and , as a result, have put their lives on success autopilot. Why go at success the hard way when the easier approach is to simply mimic the daily habits of successful people.
