Let me tell you about the strangest success secret of all. Success is a series of well-managed breakdowns. Breakdowns? Success is not this destination that you get to. Success is not this place, where you will suddenly way “oh my god, it’s so amazing now!” In fact, what you’re going to find is that when you work with me, I’m going to help you to remove the barriers that stop you from taking the critical and important actions that will fulfill your goals and dreams.
What happens is you upset the apple cart. See, your life is not designed to fulfill upon the desires that you have within your heart. Your life is designed to fulfill upon what it is already fulfilling upon. So the moment you start taking effective and powerful action is the moment you start becoming someone who is joyous. And that is going to annoy people and piss them off. You’re going to go to breakdown in your relationships. If you take effective action, it’s going to confront what you always do. You have a procedure, a process, in your life. It’s sort of a habit or patterns that you do. And the moment you start taking new actions and start doing new choices and new behaviors, it sets things into a negative state.
Destruction and creation are the same thing. See, the strangest success secret of all is that success is destructive, and that you must learn to become someone who celebrates the destruction. When things are going wrong, something good is happening. When you are in breakdown, something good is happening. When you are sitting there going “How am I gonna get myself out of this?” Something good is happening because you put yourself into a new place.
