8 Insights into Nick’s Success

If you landed here without reading Success Stories: Nick Bramhall vs. the Munros, these insights will seem to be missing a little something.

1. Nick was inspired by his Grandfather and others. Want to be successful? Let others inspire you with their successes.

2. Nick chose a challenging and demanding goal. Climbing since 2007, he decided to knock out almost half (48) of the 100 munros in 2010. Wimpy goals lead to wimpy results. Real men climb mountains! Either literally or figuratively.

3. A delay in reaching the goal did not stop him. Sadly, it stops some people cold.

4. Nick is humble. Read his second paragraph again. I’ve only done a hundred so far…I was a little late with the 48 for this year… Are you KIDDING me?! But humility is something I noticed frequently in successful people. Not much talk, plenty of action.

5. This was only a sub-goal! He’s going to do all 283! If you haven’t figured out the importance biting off sections of your big goals to work on, take a lesson from Nick.

6. A deadline date. Do you see how by setting a date Nick did the jump to light speed and got it done?

7. Nick is passionate about the subject. You need either passion for the thing you are doing or passion for the end result to be successful. The combination of both is better.

8. “I have enjoyed every minute of it, even the tough times…” I believe Nick just gave us one of the most important secrets to success. He said it so quietly and humbly, I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it.

Thank you again, Nick. I am inspired and ready to rock for 2011!

    Thanks, Beth. All those catch phrases we hear, “step by step, inch by inch” and “you eat an elephant one bite at a time” are helpful but nothing inspires me like someone actually achieving their goals.

  6. Teresa,

    Great success story about Nick. It is amazing how another persons success story can fuel and ignite others and move them into a more positive direction.

    Thanks for sharing.



  7. Thank you Teresa for breaking down what were the factors in his success. I love how you used real life experiences versus some theory.

    Bite sized chunks is truly the secret. It’s one that I forget too often. I’m recommitting to one bite at a time. “Inch by inch, it’s a cinch. Yard by yard, it’s hard.”

    I am grateful. It’s a much needed reminder.

  10. Hey Teresa,

    I love that you brought up Passion as one of the 8 Insights into Nicks success.

    Passion is something that one MUST have in order to succeed!

    It’s also something that many loose sight of on their quest for success.

    Thanks for the great post Teresa.

  11. Great post Teresa.

    I agree with Eiji.

    There is only one way to eat an elephant… one bite at a time.

    Nothing great happens without passion, belief and total commitment. It is obvious Nick has all that and more.

    Nice blog.



  12. [...] a breath after I hit publish on 8 Insights into Nick’s Success, I remembered another insight I’d meant to include. It’s okay I kept telling myself, 8 Insights [...]

  13. All to often we read an inspiring story and well, … leave it at that – just reading.

    Breaking it down like this, into exactly WHAT makes it inspiring and most importantly, how we can apply that awareness to our own journeys, makes the story not only inspiring but Impact-full.

    I loved reading of Nick’s success, but deeply appreciate this analysis of it.

  14. Thanks for this list. I especially like the idea of “sub goals”. I think that sometimes people make goals big which can be exciting and inspiring but if reaching them will take some time, it’s important to have a definite milestone that is satisfying on the way there.

  15. No I haven’t read the previous post before this so I was a little lost. But as I starting reading I picked up on the universal message hear of having passion and really being focused and action oriented toward your goals. Great post.
