Brian Tracy’s 3 Beliefs About Life and How They Will Help You Succeed



Brian tracy

Brian Tracy has been a leading expert on sales, psychology, and achievement for years. Every time I talk with someone in sales they are telling me about Brian Tracy. He has written numerous books, he speaks publicly, and he runs large personal development conferences.

What you might not know about Brian Tracy is three beliefs that he has about life. These are very simple ideas, but transformative. Understand and utilize these three beliefs and you are likely to hit a new level of success.

Here are Brian Tracy’s three beliefs on life and how they will benefit you:

1. Life is hard

Brian Tracy says that life is hard. It always has been and it always will be. This has been true since thousands of years ago when we were fighting for our very survival until now when we are battling for business success and prosperity in much similar ways.

Understanding that life is hard can give you an added acceptance and understanding for life. Seeing things as challenging, will reduce your frustration with challenges and will allow you to persevere more.

Afterall, if life was easy and the tasks ahead of you were as well, what would that mean about the rewards of such accomplishments?

“You are where you are and what you are because of what you believe yourself to be.” –Brian Tracy

2. Everything you are or ever will be is only up to you

While some people think that other people or other outside influences have the keys to their success, the truly successful people know that success or failure is on them and them alone.

Sure, there will be failure and disappointment ahead. People you were counting on will let you down, but it is on you to respond to the challenges of life. You must make your process about you. You must persevere, and you must make your life in the way that you see fit.

Understanding that you hold the keys to your success moves you away from relying or needing anyone else for your success. When you know that you walk your own path, that knowledge makes things easier. Your success then can become that much more reliable when it is only dependent on you and you alone.

3. You can learn anything you need to learn to become who you want to become

The great advantage that we have today over yesterday is that we have the great ability to learn. Now, more than ever, we have the ability to learn like never before. Only in this time today have we had such an ease of access to a wealth of information as abundant as ever.

If someone has accomplished what you want to do then you can go out and learn from them. Take in knowledge, read everyday, and apply yourself to never ending learning.

When you understand that you can learn anything you need to, it gives you leverage in making your goals a process instead of an outcome. You don’t have to know everything right away, but along the way you can and will learn everything else you need to do if you are going to be successful.

“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.” – Brian Tracy

Brian Tracy was right when he said it. It’s not going to be easy and it is going to be all on you. The good news is that you can learn and become the person you want to become.
