The Infrastructure Of Success

With virtually my entire work career being devoted to sales and marketing, I have studied the ingredients that make up the infrastructure of success.  Early in my insurance sales, I benefited from receiving a copy of a wonderful speech delivered by an executive of Prudential Insurance Company of America, Mr. Albert E.N. Gray,  at a convention in 1940 titled, The Common Denominator Of Success.  From 1977 to the present day I have kept a pamphlet of this message on my desk!  In my mind, it ranks with other classics like Think And Grow Rich, The Richest Man In Babylon, Acres Of Diamonds, and The Slight Edge




Of course, it is best for each person to wade through and absorb the "wisdom of the ages", yet much of it can be outlined in the infrastructure of success:


  • Expert Advice
  • Community Support
  • Inspiring & Motivating Content
  • Personal Accountability


Combining those four components into your framework can allow for building success in your chosen endeavor.


I was also introduced to the power of structuring S.M.A.R.T goals.


  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Agreed Upon
  • Realistic
  • Timebound 

When an action-oriented person is empowered with this infrastructure then the results can be impressive!  Although a word of caution, it has often been said that "knowledge is power", and I offer the slight adaptation that "applied knowledge can be powerful!".


I am confident that this infrastructure can allow you to build success in whatever area you apply it.
