Any real success I have had has been with my copywriting. I choose topics I love to research and write about, so I’m fully engaged in the process.

Focusing on what I really enjoy doing and letting the rest go.
My biggest success has come from offering free webinars, partering with people to do webianrs, and being part of mastermind groups

Wow! there are just so many . .
I will be concise, but just to list a few:
1) my mother drove a strong (perhaps too strong) work ethic into me
2) I struggled in high schoolish years so had to get really mentally tough to survive
3) I worked full time while taking 18-21 credit hours in college, that toughened me some more
4) I studied statistics and economic analysis in college and use that to understand patterns in my business
5) I have studied hard (read many many books, studied deeply, experimented a lot) on the impact a certain word – and then multiple words strung together in a certain way, how they affect the reader to take (or not take) action.
(For example, the difference between, “You have to do this” versus, You should do this, versus, let’s think about whether doing this will help or hurt you
very very simplistic example . . but want to give you a flavor
6) intense pushback in the business, resistance to success, multiple failures over the years have pushed me to want success even more, to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Case in point when I was writing articles for ezinearticles, I would do 100 articles tests on a certain topic, I tested about 80 different topics with 100-300 articles EACH then used a spreadsheet and analysis to determine which topics were more profitable . . plotting it down to $ per article by topic . . that is 1 of likely hundreds of examples of my relentless determination to “figure it out”
7) The people who learn from me drive me to become better to help them more
8) the God I serve demands more of me, He has placed a call on my life, and I believe I must live up to that call
I didn’t really mean to write this much, but as I write I realize I could probably list 100 things that have influenced my success . . .hundreds of books read, hundreds of conversations with fellow humans, hundreds of failures, hundreds of sleeplessish nights where I calculate ideas for hours at a time . . .
All this to say . . . I think we each have hundreds of individual influences that impact our success . . .
We have to take those influences and roll with them, ask ourselves, how can we make this work better, work exponential, go to a new level (not like the NEXT level but imagine a level 10,000 times higher – what can we do to go to THAT level?)

My willingness to consistently, persistently keep moving forward.
Regardless of what happens, to be willing to pick up, figure out what’s next, and get started doing that in some small way, whatever simple things I can do – doing them.
Humbly, slowly daring to improve without quitting.
Evaluating, reassessing, testing — and adjusting.
Remembering that past successes came after putting effort in over a long enough period and with enough experimentation to find a way that works.
