Are You a Hunter or Fisherman?

Jim Rohn says, "Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become." So I have an interesting question for you (and for the moment it may seem completely unrelated, but stick with me...): Are you a hunter or a fisherman?

Now let me explain: Last week as I spoke to a group of about 100 business people, we looked at a theme I frequently speak about: Hunting and Fishing. No, not actual hunting and fishing; but instead the analogy that hunting and fishing provides us as it relates to success in general, and leadership and influence specifically. You see, there are two kinds of people: those who hunt (and are constantly tracking down success), and those who fish (or let success and leadership come to them).

So in our analogy, let me tell you why fishing is better. Fishing is about attraction. It is about magnetically having success and influence come to you. When you are hunting, everything just runs away!

How do you fish rather than hunt? Good question. Fishing is all about presenting great bait. So what is the bait? YOU! That is why personal development is so important. The more we improve, the more attractive we become to others and to success! We should make it an everyday goal to develop ourselves and improve so as to become the best people we can be. As we do that, we will begin to see success come our way with less effort than if we just sat in the same old spot personally all the time.

Take some time each day, beginning with this blog, to improve yourself, and become a fisher of success and influence!

You Are Made for Success!
