“Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” -Hal Elrod

If you’re as clever, wise, shrewd, smart, bold and courageous as you can be, you will attract success. You won’t be able to help it.

Sadly, most people don’t get this. Instead, most people try to chase success through selfishness and self-seeking motivation. They also have a very narrow definition of success: i.e. lots of money, fame, and power to rule.

But the world’s most successful, influential, and wealthy people don’t chase success. They upper-tier performers don’t focus on the outcome; they focus on the process. Tim Grover, Michael Jordan’s personal trainer, once described how Jordan trained: “I don’t compete with anyone,” Grover taught Jordan to think. “Everyone competes with me.

Other individuals give up on the “competition” entirely, and achieve success in other ways. World-famous actor Bryan Cranston wrote in his autobiography that once he switched his focus from the outcome to the process, he felt more free and relaxed than ever before. That was the foundation for his major breakthrough to one of the most popular actors in the world today.

Amateurs chase success, but the truly successful attract it. How? By tapping into the undeniable, implacable principles of true success. As the great author and speaker Jim Rohn once said, “Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.” If you follow these guidelines, you can’t help but attract success.

Most people don’t realize that there are basic, fundamental principles of success that always work. If you practice these principles in all your affairs, you won’t be able to stop attracting success. That’s just how it works.

Here are 5 ways you attract success, consistently and reliably.
