The S.W.P.D. Recipe for Success

A wonderful quote by author and scholar William A. Ward provides a time-tested recipe for success. Think of it as the S.W.P.D. success recipe. This simple and powerful formula has brought success to many men and women who have put it to use. S.W.P.D stands for studying, working, preparing, and dreaming. "Recipe for success: Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing." - William A. Ward Move Beyond Limitations and See the Outcome

We each define success differently. We also have different limitations. Yet limitations need not stop us from living our purpose and achieving our objectives.

We will be guided by powerful helping hands when we commit ourselves to success and follow its laws. Success begins by requiring that we keep our minds focused on our desired outcome, not our limitations.

Mr. Ward also said, "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it."

The success we envision can seem far away. The preparations necessary may take time and effort. There may be temptations to quit with the finish line years in the distance. Mentally zoom in and look at it! Experience your future success internally.

Take Small Steps for Big Results

Instead of trying to leap from the starting line to the finish line, we can begin by taking one small step - doing what we are capable of doing today. Success results from small disciplined actions repeated each day. Small purposeful steps will eventually get us to the finish line.

Prepare and Move Forward to Succeed

Too often, people skip planning and preparation, want the work done for them, and want the payoff; they will never succeed. We need to take a stand for what we want, commit to it, and then start building our own doors to knock on. Commitment exerts power, and moves us to take the actions necessary to reach our goals and objectives.

Keep Learning and Get Fired Up

Success does not exist inside books. Yet books are valuable in that they catalyze the abilities already inside us. Books wake us up and provide necessary inspiration, motivation, and education. They nourish our minds and spirits so that we can reach our potential. Then it is up to us to put that knowledge into action to develop discipline and skills. Good books work if we work.

Success is Within You

The Creator placed the seeds of success in the exact place they would be needed; they live inside of us, waiting to germinate, grow, and blossom. When we stay focused on our objectives, and follow time-tested recipes for success, those seeds will grow to bring rewarding accomplishments in the years ahead.

Begin dreaming, studying, planning, and working for what you want today. Your gifts will make room for the achievements of your dreams. Your success will bring value and joy to you and all those you serve!
