How to become successful and happy? In a relatively short period of time.

There is an easy way!  Yes, there is. We are going to go through it here. 

There is a shortcut to becoming successful and happy.

We just need to change ourselves.
I’ve been where you are today.
I have been there for many years.

Today if I sit and think back, I will never allow myself to go back into that nasty sinkhole again.

The moment I thought I’ve made progression something else would normally go wrong.

I use to sit with my hair in my hands asking myself in a crying manner:

“What next?”

“What is the next thing that will go wrong?”

I bet you can relate to the feeling:  I’m an outsider in this world.
Why are people around me looking so happy and successful?

Yet I felt like there was absolutely no reason as to why I was unhappy.

A void life is putting it mildly.

I made forceful and violent efforts to free myself from restraint.

Give me a moment to explain…

Being in a sinkhole is exactly what it says…if you move you sink even deeper.

Many years have passed.

Many books have been read.

Many videos have been watched.

Many methods tried. 

I have to admit we are not all the same.  We are not all at the stage where you feel you are dying from the inside. Every person reacts differently to situations.

We do not all have the same experiences and feelings but be assured that somewhere along the line we do have to experience similar feelings.  One person might experience it more complex than the next. The fact stays the same, – we all experience difficult times at some point in our lives.

After my divorce, 10 years ago, I set out on a journey to find success and happiness no matter what it took.

I had a hunger for success and happiness so bad I would have done anything to find it.

It’s this hunger that helps you get what you want.

I decided my life begins NOW…. And so does my success and my happiness.


Today I want to share with you what I learned and now know.

Remember that you need to open your mind, body, and soul or else you are fighting a losing battle.

After numerous failed attempts did I realize I need to open my mind, body, and soul.

This is when my life turned for the better.  After being “open” I found the following 5 secrets that helped me to my journey of success and happiness.

Secret # 1:

It has been scientifically proven that the biggest factor to get you going in the direction of a better life of being successful and happy is gratitude.

I’ll get straight to the point.  I know using gratitude sounds fuzzy and so not the kind of method we’ de want to use for changing.  Believe me, this is what you have to use and do:


You can buy the book online or kindle.  This book gives you the quickest easiest shortcut way to use gratitude correctly in 28 days.  (In short, it is a must!)

I have done a full review of the book and you can have a look at it here.

I want to make one point clear about gratitude:

You will never achieve anything if you do not practice gratitude.

In the 28 days you will learn:

Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order,

Confusion into clarity…

It makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and

It creates a vision for tomorrow.  ~Melodie Beattie

We need to clear the air.  It is very important that you totally understand gratitude and what it’s all about.  You also need to know how to practice it until you find your own perfect way that suits you.

Many people start to focus on one thing and forget about all the things they already have.

You need to understand gratitude must be practiced from your being.

Remember when you are

Feeling Tension,
Rushing something,

Or even in a bad mood is does not mean you are grateful.  It actually means being ungrateful.

Change your thoughts to grateful ones.  Control your thoughts at all times and see how gratitude transforms your life.

One last question before we go to the next secret.

Do you want to allow minor things or hurdles to get in the way of your transformation and the life you deserve?

Secret #2:

Without love we are nothing.

The world was created with love.  Everything in it was made with love.  Love has been part of this world from existence.

Gratitude is the bridge to love.  So if you find it hard to practice love don’t burn yourself out.  Practice Gratitude and you will surely start feeling the love and passion that is needed to change your life.  Love is the power that connects everything together.

When you give enough love you will start receiving it as well.

I quote:  “Love has been talked about and written about since the beginning of time, in every religion, and by every great thinker, philosopher, prophet, and leader. But many of us have not truly understood their wise words.

Even though their teachings were specifically for people in their time, their one truth and message to the world is still the same today:  love, because when you love you are using the greatest power in the universe.”

“Love is an element which though physically unseen is as real as air or water.  It is an acting, living, moving force….it moves in waves and currents like those of the ocean.”

Here is a video to have a look at

You have the power inside of you to live the life of your dreams…

Secret # 3:

You can create an exceptional life.  This is the name of a little book that has got every aspect covered about affirmations.  

Affirmations are surely the only way to keep your attitude positive, starting in the morning when you wake up till bedtime – even in your subconscious mind during your sleep your affirmations will work for you as long as you practice them daily.

Basically what affirmations do is keep your spirit up high by repeating the affirmation. 

You’ll be surprised as to how many affirmations there are.

The author of the book mentioned above is Louise Hay.

She was diagnosed with cancer and healed with the use of affirmations.  Till today you can see all the evidence online and in her books.

She recently died, but not from cancer.  She died from old age.

I’ve added a video about affirmations here.

I could not have explained this to you in a better way than the next video that Louise Hay is teaching people.

Take time, make time and watch this video even if you watch it 3 times.

Use what this lady has to give to the world.  (note:  please listen to how many times this woman refers to gratitude and love and affirmations.)

Secret #4:

When you start seeing your destiny in your mind’s eye you will realize you are at the point of reaching your dream.

The dictionary says Visualization is:  formation of mental visual mages.

Understanding visualization and how to use it will dramatically change any aspect of your life.  I wrote a short story about how I visualized something for months.

How I tested if this visualization really works.

You can read all about it here.

Do yourself a favor and create a Vision Board today.  Post on it the picture of what you want and how you want it, use your brain to “photocopy” it and start looking at it daily.

See it in your mind even if you are not looking at the board.

See how the universe will change things in your life so you can get what you want.

Remember a vision board is a tool to help you create the image in your mind of what you want.  Look at your board and imprint your desire in your mind.

Looking at this board will stimulate your senses and evoke positive feelings within you.

You can have a look at the vision board that I create with this special tool.

Secret #5:

The last secret.  One that you don’t hear of very often.  One that I know for a fact very little people get it right and know how to use it.  In this case, I was lucky.

I stood in the front row when it was dealt out.  It is called:  Your GUT Feeling. (Intuition)

With your gut feeling, you can feel if something is right or not.

The clever people call it:

Psychic ability, a sixth sense, the gift of prophecy, clairvoyance, clairsentience – there are many names to describe this quality we simply call “spiritual intuition”.

Everyone has intuition; the degree to which it is used varies from person to person. Intuition is often defined as “a knowing, without the use of rational processes.”

Though for those who have a strong connection to their intuition, you know that receiving accurate information through it is as rational and true as any information obtained by the mental process.

Intuition is natural, a part of all of us. Just like an inherent ability for athleticism or an aptitude for the sciences, spiritual intuition can be taught to those who have a little of it, increased in those with a budding penchant, and refined for those who knowingly engage these gifts.


You have everything you need to develop your intuition in your head. Science has shown that all the intuitive functions are in your brain.

As you probably have heard, everyone has the ability to be intuitive and even psychic. You just need to learn how. Intuition skills are easy to develop.

Have a look at this video:

I end with the following quote:

You have a clean slate every day you wake up. You have a chance every single morning to make that change and be the person you want to be. You just have to decide to do it. Decide today’s the day. Say it; this is going to be my day.

~Brendon Burchard

Follow these 5 secrets daily and I promise you you’ll be:

100 % satisfied.
