Seven Laws of Success (Part one)


This is an interesting set of criteria that one could argue are essential for success. First put forward by Herbert Armstrong and then re-visited by Deepak Chopra. I am going to boldly compare the two very different points of view and let you , the reader, decide if you prefer one over the other or perhaps like me, a blend of the two. This portion deals with Armstrong’s version. Okay, let’s get to it.


Herbert’s Seven Laws of Success


1. Fix the Right Goal

Seems almost self evident but really it’s more complicated than it first seems. Many people do set goals but they often set the wrong ones. It isn’t just a case of setting your goal at the right level, you also have to take into account if the goal is congruent with you. Any one of us can set goals that make no sense, such as riding a unicorn or shaking down a few leprechauns for their gold but setting goals that have real value is critical. Before setting your goal think long and hard about what you truly want. What some people refer to as their ‘Why’.


2. Preparation

No great journey can be undertaken without a certain amount of preparation.  We wouldn’t set off on a trip to the Serengeti or across the Pacific without some serious planning.  If you want to be successful you have to think of it as embarking on a significant journey and put the same type of effort into planning for it. It is necessary to put yourself into a position from which you can be successful.  I have often joked that in order to be run down by the ‘Luck Truck’ you have to get out in the middle of the street.  Staying on the sidewalk with the rest of the bystanders won’t do it.


3. Good Health (Wellness)

 This gets right to the heart of the definition of the term ‘Success’.  It would seem prudent and right that in order to be deemed a success one would require good health but I think there is even more to it than that. Something that is a true success is not fleeting or transient it should withstand the test of time. There is an enormous difference between a successful person and a lottery winner.  Good health and continued pursuit of the same is essential for any successful person to have a prolonged ‘time in the sun’.


4. Doing (Taking Action)

There is zero chance of any sort of success unless you totally embrace this step.  We can plan until the cows come home but without putting the plan into motion there isn’t going to be much in the way of results.  Action does not have to be on a grand scale and it does not have to be non-stop but there does have to be continual movement towards the ultimate goal.  There are going to be times when the only action that occurs is negative (taking you further away from your goal) but focus and perseverance will  get you back on track and headed in the right direction.  The old Chinese proverb is correct, ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’.

    Thanks so much for these steps. You are so right that it takes planning and action. All too often we can end up doing all the preparation in the world , but never take any action towards our goals.

    You are so welcome Dagmar. Sometimes we are so busy learning that we forget to just do it!
