Keys to success: learn, aspire, believe

For me, the key to success in changing your life can be summed up as: learn, aspire, believe.


If you want to be slimmer, fitter, stronger and healthier, learn how to do it. What else in life did you achieve without any learning? You had to learn to read, drive your car, play your sport and carry out your trade.

How you learn best is up to you. You can read books, find an expert to learn from, or simply plunge into the deep end and learn by doing.


Aspire to be a better version of yourself, not to be someone else. Aspiring to be better comes from an understanding of where you are now and where you want to be.

Aspirations are different from wishes. Wishing something was different doesn’t change anything. Aspiring to something for me implies a journey, a gradual progression to a goal.


Believe in your ability to carry out a programme of work and get the outcome you want. Believe in your ability to cut through the crap and make decisions for yourself. I believe that everyone can become an expert in their own change.

Self belief is the most important quality: you have to believe that you can learn, change and get to where you want to be.

So go on, make it happen!

    To “Learn”, might I simply add, choose your resources wisely….

    Good point Emergefit, although I would counsel people not to be afraid of being misinformed, because if you are always in a learning mindset then you will work out when you have been given the wrong information! The biggest problem is if you go with the first thing you are told and never try it, analyse the results and question it if necessary.
