“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.” Brian Tracy

Several years ago, I was involved with a company that promoted and staged business seminars.

At each event, we would have a well-known Keynote Speaker, as well as some other lesser-known speakers. Our celebrity lineup of speakers included names like Seth Godin, Jeffrey Gitomer, Jack Canfield, Mike Ditka, Harry Beckwith, and many others.

Local businesses would rent booth space to show their products or services to the seminar attendees. This, in addition to a pretty good continental breakfast we provided for all, added up to a great business networking event.

At one particular seminar, I had the distinct pleasure of spending some time over lunch with our Keynote Speaker, Brian Tracy.

If you’re not familiar with Brian, he is a Canadian-American motivational public speaker and self-development author who has written over 70 books that have been translated into dozens of languages. Some of his most popular books are Earn What You’re Really Worth, Eat That Frog!, and No Excuses!

Brian’s confidence is infectious and when you hear him speak you can’t help but feel energized. The topic he focused on that day was what it takes to be successful, and I thought it would be worth our while to review some of the material he covered.

    The two characteristics of courage and commitment strike me as the first directional change needed in my life. By being committed to be courageous, I anticipate being able to claim victory over fear. I am turning this statement, “If you muster the courage to do the things you fear, fear will eventually diminish.” into my affirmation — My courageous attitude slays Fear when it creeps into the scene.
