Course Journey

JA’s Principles for Success

Explore JA’s principles for success and how they have been applied by others to achieve remarkable results.

Be Clear About Your Vision, Your Purpose, and Your Goals

Having a clear vision, purpose, and goals are vital for success. There are actionable strategies that anyone can use to uncover each of these components.

Take 100% Responsibility

A hallmark of successful people is being able to face uncomfortable circumstances, make appropriate actions, and take 100% responsibility, no matter how challenging it might be.

Believe in Yourself

People who believe they will succeed are more likely than others to actually succeed. Confidence in one’s future success makes individuals more capable of completing their tasks successfully because they work harder and keep going in the face of disappointment.

Develop a Positive Mental Attitude

There are many components of a positive mental attitude, all of which are essential for success. Learn strategies for developing each of these components.

Surround Yourself with Successful People

We tend to become like the people we are around, so if you plan on reaching your goals, you have to start surrounding yourself with solution-oriented people.

Consistently Take Inspired Action

Learn a variety of strategies and techniques that can be used when taking uncomfortable actions in order to accomplish meaningful goals. No successful person has ever accomplished anything worthwhile without overcoming fear and taking a chance.

Be Persistent

Failure through rejection does not exist. You have nothing to lose by asking for something, there’s only a possibility to gain something.
