Back To School Tips:

21 Universal Success Secrets


For children and adults of all ages, it’s back to school time

once again. In fact, until 2013, total enrollment for degree-granting

institutions alone is projected to increase an estimated average of

19 percent to 18.2 million students.


However, regardless of age and level of education, back to school

time generally signals time to meet new teachers and new friends.

Time to learn new subjects and try new things.


What could come in handy is a set of basic guidelines or Guide to

Success for students. Universal laws from those who’ve been

there, done that.


With that in mind, Keynote Speaker Gregory Scott Reid, AKA

The Millionaire Mentor, began listing some common denominators

in order to share them with others and help them succeed.


“I’ve been very fortunate to have had some success in my life, as

well as the opportunity to meet with some very powerful and

influential people over the years,” said Gregory Scott Reid,

three-time #1 best-selling author of, "The Millionaire Mentor,"

"Wake Up: Live The Life You Love," and "Positive Impact.” “These

are the common laws that each seemed to follow, and I now

wish to share them with you.”


Universal Success Secrets:


1. Always maintain a positive, solution-seeking attitude.


2. To truly succeed at anything, your chances increase when you

enjoy the task. When you do what you love and love what you do,

you’ll have success your whole life through.


3. The only limitations you really have are those you give



4. The only expectations you need to fulfill are those you give



5. Nothing is as powerful as a positive attitude, and nothing is

as detrimental as a negative one.


6. Morally speaking, if you have to wonder whether something is

right or wrong, chances are it’s wrong.


7. When you focus on other people’s success, yours is sure to



8. Live your word. Lead  by example.


9. Share. (Wealth + Information + Glory = Success)


10. You have the best chance of reaching a goal by simply giving

yourself one to reach.


11. Observe every obstacle as a learning experience. The greater

the challenge, the greater the reward.


12. Do the hardest thing first, and the rest will be easy.


13. Treat others the way that they  want to be treated.


14. Few great accomplishments have ever been achieved by anyone

alone; seek support from those whose talents exceed your own.


15. You are the reflection of the five people you associate with

most, and your income is the average of those five people. Choose

your friends wisely.


16. A dream written down with a date becomes a GOAL. A goal

broken down into steps becomes a PLAN. A plan backed by ACTION

makes your dream come true.


17. You can learn more about someone’s character on one bad day

than on all their good days put together. The true measure of all

great leaders is how well they weather storms.


18. It’s better to invest time doing what pleases you, rather

than to waste time trying to please everyone else.


19. In the end, the extent of your own success will be measured

by the accomplishments that you have helped create in others.


20. Having potential simply means that you possess talents and

abilities you aren’t applying.


21. Things are the way you think they are, because you think they

are that way. Your perception determines your experience.
