Don J. Carey III
Have you ever wondered what makes some people more successful than others? Well it does not always boil down to talent. Often times there are far more variables involved that causes some to rise above rest. There is no doubt that we all want to be successful in life. The million dollar question, however, is how should we go about obtaining that success? Yes there are some who are just flat out better. Those who, no matter what they do, possess an innate ability to come out on top of any situation. But that group is the exception to the rule, not it's standard. So how do the vast majority of successful people, including myself, become successful? As marvelously stated in the title, It's Not Because I'm Better Than You. I and many others have tapped into some crucial life principles that have truly transformed the way we live our lives. Contrary to our wishful thinking, there are no magical success buttons in life. Yet that does not mean success is a far off foreign concept that cannot be actualized. I truly believe that if you catch hold of these principles, they will go a long way in helping you just like they did for myself and for countless others.
