Michael Masterson's Insights for Success

Yesterday was the third time that I've watched the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness” on DVD. The Will Smith movie was released in 2006 and it was based on a true story which happened in San Francisco in 1981 but the message conveyed by the movie can still be applied up to this date. It was the heartwarming story of Chris Gardner, a struggling salesman who aspired to become a stockbroker so he can provide a good life for his family. He had to go through hard times to realize his dream while being a good father to his son.

Success, just like happiness is not inherent to all people. It has to be pursued. Not everybody will succeed in life just as much as not everyone will live a happy life. I have read so many self-help books in the past which were enough to conclude that success needs hard work and perseverance. Unfortunately, success will not be handed to us on a silver platter. If we want to succeed in our chosen field of endeavor then we need to work really hard for it.

We should not lose focus on what we desire to achieve. We should continue learning and improving our craft. Fortunately, we can benefit from the stories and testimonies of those who have trudged the road to success and how they have effectively managed to surpass the challenges along the way. These people had been in the same position as we are now, hoping and dreaming to break away from the pack. They have the same 24-hours a day and yet they have managed to accomplish a lot more things that made them closer to the realization of their dreams. I have heard and read rags-to-riches stories of successful people who rise from complete anonymity to unparalleled fame and glory. What is their secret? What did they do to succeed?

In these changing times, it is good to know that there is no dearth of resources online even for people who are looking for inspiration and practical advice on how to succeed. I was lucky to stumble upon a website which offers great tips to help improve ourselves and succeed in life and accomplish our goals. The website is called Early To Rise which is also the web's most popular success e-zine. Its founder Michael Masterson is the author of several Wall Street Journal bestsellers. He offers insights on how to succeed in business through his daily emails and writings on Early To Rise.

The first time that I visited the website, I was amazed by the many interesting articles and tips written by true experts who have succeeded and are willing to share their insights . I immediately signed up for the free newsletter and I have been looking forward to every issue and newsletters ever since.
