Chapter 5. Goal-Oriented Retirement Plan... > Create a Culture for Success

Create a Culture for Success

Success doesn't come naturally to all people, nor is success something that is innately in your blood. The fact of the matter is that you can learn to be successful and it can be as simple as making it a priority in your life. It has often been said that success is the result of preparation meeting opportunity. Preparation is the result of planning, practicing, and learning. The artist who drew my cartoons for this book, a wonderful man named Frank Hill, opined that he doesn't know anyone who has gotten worse by practicing. On the other hand, opportunity is a numbers game; if you keep your goal in play and utilize every possible opportunity to achieve it, you greatly increase your chances of success.

But success is more than that. Success is a culture, and you have to create and foster the culture of success in your life. Part of that is your responsibility and part is the responsibility of your support group of family and friends. It is up to you to do everything in your power to achieve your goals and to minimize whatever is subversive to your goal.
