You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do. ~ Henry Ford
What makes a successful career?
The core philosophy that underpins a successful career, which dates back to Aristotle, is causality or the relationship between a set of factors (causes) and a phenomenon (effect).
By modelling the causes and effects of what successful people do, you can get similar results.
The key is to learn what they do, and then develop the habits and practice them in your life.
You become what you do.
So you need to think and act your way into feeling like a successful person and shape your own character by your thinking and behaviour.
You control your mind, your mind controls your brain, and your brain controls your actions.
