The secret to success

Sometimes with mythologise success.  We want it to be a formula.  We want it to be something we can easily replicate.  We buy book after book by successful people trying to learn from their path, and replicate it in our own.  But what if it's something simpler than that?  What if there really is one simple thing we can all do to have success in areas of our own life?  Would we follow it if it was easy?  Or would we determine that the truth we here is too simple so therefore it can't be that easy - or everyone would do it.....

Looking at my inspiration book for today I'm encouraged by the following words by Robert Collier -

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Can it really be that easy?  If I just do the same thing, working towards the same goal, will I really be successful?  Will I really achieve my goals?  It seems too good to be true, but the truth resonates within.  Success requires discipline, and discipline is staying true to a path - repeating actions day in and day out  until a goal is achieved.  

What small, repeatable actions will you take today to help you succeed at your goals?
