The Secrets Of Success
“Success has constructed a concept that success is measured in assets, wealth, riches and material goods when in fact most people construe success as a healthy and happy family life, time freedom, flexibility, simplicity and many other areas outside of financial benefits”
Sharon Brown, The Book Chief
How true this is as we discovered during the lead up to the publication of a book The Secrets of 99 Successful Women.
Proving that the whole meaning of success is a different journey for everyone
Susan was asked to contribute to this book to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March 2023 to share stories of what success means to women from different backgrounds and across continents thus giving us a better understanding of what really fulfills us
She chose to write about how she was inspired by her Mother all through her life and her chapter was a tribute to her Mum who passed away last year at 92
Her mantra was never to take no for an answer
“Never Give Up On Your Dreams Of Success Because It’s Just Around The Corner”

In all seriousness, there are no hidden secrets to success as some of the most well known people on this planet can tell you
Being successful if the desire of pretty much everyone but it’s just different for each of us as the Secrets of 99 Successful Women has revealed
Just think of some of the most famous people you know. They each have their very own success stories and most have previously faced serious failures before they reached succes
Most of the iconic personalities have previously faced serious failures in their life’s struggles. Yest they continued on their say to success and finally achieved it.
People like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, J K Rowling, Michael Jordon, Van Gogh, Walt Disney and Steven Spielgerg to name but a few
A google search for their names will reveal their success stories so we won’t share them in detail here but if you want to read them this is our favourite article here
One of our favourites is J K Rowling’s success story
Simply because she was once a failure
A few short years after her graduation from college, her worst nightmares were realized.
In her words…
“I had failed on an epic scale. An exceptionally short-lived marriage had imploded, and I was jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless. The fears that my parents had had for me, and that I had had for myself, had both come to pass, and by every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew.”
Coming out of this failure stronger and more determined was the key to her success
The thing is that in each case none achieved overnight success but they had a single success characteristic – never to give up!
For as the great Henry Ford said
“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently” — Henry Ford
Thanks for reading the secrets of success and hope it’s inspired you to start or continue your journey
Remember as was once famously said it takes ten years to be an overnight success 🤣
