The Proof is In the Pudding
We've all heard it. We all know it. People can talk a good talk but until they walk the walk they are nothing more than hot air... the proof is in the pudding, right?
Well... there is something a little deeper in the pudding that is VERY relevant to success if we will pay close attention.
Here is the deal, in this day and age pudding... not metaphorical, but REAL pudding... is usually something we either get from a prepackaged cup or make nearly instantly by mixing up some mild and the pudding mix. For the sake of this example we are going to pretend that prepackaged pudding doesn't even exist.
In "the olden days" pudding used to be something that was made from a list of ingredients measured out and prepared a certain way. Even now, "instant" pudding still requires measuring out ingredients and stirring it up and letting it sit. The point to all of it is that there is a list of instructions... or a RECIPE how to make it. If we follow the recipe, we get pudding. If we don't... well we get something, but not pudding.
You might be wondering what in the heck does this have to do with working from home, a career, a family, relationships, success or the price of rice in China for that matter... right?
It's simple. Success.
Success in ANYTHING has a specific recipe to be followed. If you talk to anyone who is successful in something they will be able to give you the ingredients that are important to their success, the "amount" to use, and how to mix it all up in order to get what you want. They know the Recipe.
It doesn't matter if it is relationships, a career in the corporate world, living the work from home life or serving the needy, there is Always a Recipe for Success.
So the proof is in the pudding. If you want to know if someone is successful in an area, look at the pudding. Is it real pudding or is it something really strange looking (kind of like a science experiment) that they are just Calling Pudding... or is it really pudding?
We can look at the same thing in our own lives. Do we have pudding or something... well... not so much like pudding?
Here is the really cool part about pudding (success)... There are some REALLY AMAZING recipes out there. And they are just that... RECIPES!
Which means they are something that is proven to produce the desired outcome and they have specific ingredients and steps to be taken to get there.
So if we want to find success in something, all we have to do is find the recipe for the success we want and follow it. It really IS that simple!
It is actually a key that a lot of millionaires don't speak a lot of, or will play down because in reality it is hard to find someone who is willing to simply follow the directions to get what they want. Far too many times we decide we want to do something, but we want to do it our way then we get frustrated when we don't get the outcome that we wanted.
Success is truly as simple as following the directions.
When you have an opportunity in front of you to get a hold of a recipe for success, grab hold of it and then have the maturity to simply follow directions. It is not uncommon to have to figure out how to use the measuring cup and put everything together in the right order with the proper type of mixing to get the desired outcome... and it may be a little slow the first time through. But the second time is easier. The third time is even easier. The fourth time you might even have the amounts memorized. The fifth time you know exactly how to put it all together.
Eventually you have it memorized and it is quick and easy to "Whip Up." Isn't that how you would like success to be? That easy?
Just follow the directions.
Every good chef first started by learning all of the basic recipes and having them become second nature before they began to experiment and create their own. That comes in time with success as well. But success must first start by following the recipe and learning it by heart.
So... as long as we have the maturity to put our own ideas aside until we first master the recipe, success is a Definite outcome. That is a wonderful relief to many of us who know what it is like to try and try and try and keep ending up with the science experiment. All we have to do is follow the instructions!!
It is so simple it is easily underestimated and overlooked, but it is a HUGE key to success in career, relationships, working from home, and even going to school.
So go find the recipes you want and follow the directions. Remember that the first time or two there are still learning curves and it takes practice to perfect it, but as long as you follow the recipe you WILL get what you set out to make!!!
