Hey, Thanks for dropping by. I actually have another blog post from success.com for you to read today. I always love reading others blogs to find inspiration. I didn’t want to paraphrase this I wanted you to get the entire post. so here it is.
“Success is something you attract by the person you become. For things to improve, you have to improve. For things to get better, you have to get better. For things to change, you have to change. When you change, everything changes for you.”
– Jim Rohn
Here’s the truth about success that nobody ever talks about:
Successful people are better at saying “no” than you are.
Warren Buffett has famously said, “The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything.”
The key is simply figuring out what to say “no” to, then doing it.
Here are 3 things that Master Teacher and Coach John Wooden says you must say “no” to if you want to achieve your goals:
- Say “No” To Doing It By Yourself
“Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you.”
– John Wooden
Take a look at your social circle.
Are your ideas ever challenged by your friends or coworkers?
Do the people around you ever expect you to do more? To push beyond your limitations?
If not, then it’s time to start saying “no” to people who only agree with you. Find challengers. Find people who will push you to become better.
Say “no” to your comfort zone and start growing.

- Say “No” To The Pressure Of Being Someone Else
“I am just a common man who is true to his beliefs.”
– John Wooden
Coach John Wooden built one of the most successful championship basketball dynasties in history.
His philosophy at UCLA was markedly different than what other coaches of his time taught.
While others focused on fame, glory, and complex practice schedules, Coach Wooden’s approach was different:
“I had three rules for my players: No profanity. Don’t criticize a teammate. Never be late.”
He didn’t try to be other coaches. He didn’t chase fads. He didn’t succumb to the distractions that face many successful people.
He stayed true to his core beliefs and principles, and that made all the difference.
