How do people succeed? We see the success, but how did it come?
Many assume to succeed needs luck, but there is no luck. How to succeed? What does it take?
Realize, there’s no such thing as luck. Luck is an illusion, it’s a misnomer. Everything in this universe happens by very precise laws. As we come to understand these laws and then attempt, and I say attempt because there isn’t anyone who does it perfectly, as we attempt to incorporate them into our lives, things start to happen – Bob Proctor
It is the law of Cause and Effect, what you sow you will reap. It is also called the Karmic law.
The Law of Cause and Effect states every cause has its effect and every effect has its cause. There are no exceptions. Chance or luck does not exist.– The Kybalion
Also, to succeed we do not have to do great things, but we can do small things consistently, with dedication and love. It’s the small things that will make you successful.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.- Napoleon Hill

How To Succeed Surprises Most People
I have lived a movie-worthy life.
After spending 8 years circling the globe through blogging, most assume I got lucky with some astounding breakthrough. Some believe luck made me succeed. Others feel I was blessed to experience a Eureka moment of clarity and instant, a stunning success.
People equate living your dreams with some spectacular stroke of success, a blitz of blessings, a viral video, or some other lightning-fast, immediate turning point.
I circle the globe because I created content and built meaningful friendships with bloggers over the past 10,000 to 15,000 hours of my blogging life. I spent a decade writing and publishing blog posts, writing and publishing guest posts, and befriending bloggers by being generous. Does that surprise you? Success surprises most because few know being successful simply means doing simple things patiently and persistent. Simple leads to success.
Why do few people live their dreams? People tend to do simple things for a bit of time before unearthing deep fears. Fear feels highly uncomfortable to embrace so most folks turn around, ducking fear and preventing their success. Some try to do complex, foolish things versus facing fear. Others quit doing simple things rather than facing their fear. Few folks keep doing simple things for 5,000 to 10,000 hours, facing fear routinely, which is why few succeed and live their dreams.
As I promote my eBook:
I remind myself that breaking free from my job to become a pro blogger involved making freeing and uncomfortable decisions to do simple things persistently. I lived in Fiji for 4 months because I wrote and published blog posts for years. Nobody sees writing blog posts as being particularly sexy or spectacular. Most assume I wrote a viral post or landed a TV interview in front of 20,000,000 viewers to live a movie-worthy life. But I sat in front of my WordPress back office for thousands of hours, writing and publishing posts, doing simple, basic, plain things, to live a spectacular life.
While it may seem small, the ripple effects of small things is extraordinary. Matt Bevin
I genuinely do boring, plain things to live a fabulous life of circling the globe. Do not get me wrong; I love blogging and feel passionate about helping bloggers succeed. But I am human; right now at 10:34 PM on a Thursday night, creating my 9th blog post of the day feels a bit boring and tiring. But doing plain, sometimes monotonous things laid the foundation for an eye-popping, dream life for me. Success surprises most people because folks who never live their dreams assume successful people do spectacular, eye-popping things to live a spectacular, eye-popping life.
Successful people are doing often plain, simple things for many hours.
I know of at least a handful of top NBA players who became rich, famous superstars by spending 10,000 plus hours practicing by themselves or with 1 other person in a quiet, lonely gym. People envy top basketball players for their success, fame and wealth but few people envy the 10,000 plus hours of simple, plain, sometimes excruciating practice these pros put in, working out in quiet, lonely gyms, with no one else around.
Virtually all successful people who live their dreams simply out practice everybody else, doing plain, simple things for thousands of hours to become incredibly skilled, to gain massive exposure and to build rock-solid credibility.
Success is always predicated by simple, persistent, patient, mostly plain, work.
